During Act 1 of Westward participants learned of the amazing settlement of Blue Yonder, Washington and kicked off an opportunity for an amazing adventure. It was a self-contained event available to anyone and suitable for all audiences. It is available online at https://aka.ms/westward (requires Microsoft credentials). It can be solved independently or with friends. It consists of a series of online puzzles and an associated story that was published over the course of the summer! Act 1 was built to help train puzzle skills and introduce new concepts to help with participants be more successful in Act 2.
