GC to update day-of-game.
Teams will meet staff on the benches overlooking the waterfront at the Pike Place MarketFront expansion:
This map shows where we recommend GC to set up shop.
(In the small white rectangle just above the '3' marker.)
They will receive seven numbered folders, each containing a stack of dossiers.
Surrounding the entire area are a number of panels containing medallions of names. You can see them well in this picture:
At one point in the puzzle, teams will be asked to find panel 7. It's in the location indicated by the orange arrow on the map above.
Look at the agent profiles in each folder. Each one refers to a panel and lists a first name, as well as a crossword-style clue.
On the listed panel, teams should fine a charm with the given first name, and a last name that is an anagram of an answer to that crossword clue, plus an extra letter.
Taking the extra letter out of each of the last names yields a word for each of the folders. These words, put in order of the numbering on the folders, yields "DECODE FILES WITH PANEL SEVEN PANGRAM SKIPQ"
This tells teams to go to Panel 7 and look for a Pangram without a Q. A pangram contains each letter once, but in this case, you're skipping the letter Q. There is one charm with an appropriate name, which is "JYNXFRUG BOSCHWITZ VELDKAMP".
Using this as a substitution cipher key, they can now decrypt the labels on each of the folders, which in order, yields the message "FIRST FOUR LETTERS OFNAME AREFOUND INTHIS GAME"
This tells teams to go back to the pangram name and pull out the first four letters, which are JYNX.
The game that has this as a character name is Pokemon, or Pokemon Go.
"I'm awful at finding things. What the heck does 'panel number' mean?"
Refer teams to the map of charms at http://www.marketfront.org/findmycharm , which has all the panel numbers labeled. The panel numbers are on a medallion hung in the top right corner of each panel.
"I've solved all the crossword clues, but don't really know what to do next."
Have you found the medallions?
Did you collect the first names of the people?
Did you notice anything special about the first names and the crossword clues?
Did you notice that the first names contain an anagram of the crossword clued word, plus an extra letter?
Did you collect the leftover letter from each name?
"What the heck is a pangram?"
Have you learned how to use a search engine?
It's a word or sentence that uses every letter exactly once.
"I can't find a pangram on Panel 7."
Start by looking for a medallion labeled Katie H & Ben A, then look at the adjacent medallions.
It's in the bottom left quadrant:
"There's this JYNXFRUG BOSCHWITZ VELDKAMP medallion, but it's missing Q."
Yup. There was a 25 character limit for the medallions.
Use the pangram as an encryption key for a simple substitution cipher.
"If the pangram is missing Q, how do I use it as an encryption key?"
Did you notice the SKIPQ in the message you decoded?
Pretend the alphabet doesn't include the letter Q when attempting to decrypt.
"We found JYNX, but don't know how it's found in a game?"
Did you try googling it?
Make sure you're using the correct spelling with a Y.
GREEN data is data that is provided with the puzzle.
YELLOW data must be collected from the medallions on site. It's ok to confirm this data, or to provide a missing name or two if teams can't find it.
RED data is solved by the team.
