Washington Trail (Meta)

Washington Trail consisted of a few different components, 4 puzzles, 12 speedbumps, and an Oregon Trail-style travel system.

  1. Puzzle 1 - Hooligans: This is the logic puzzle
  2. Puzzle 2 - Rock Me Mama: Colorful wagon wheels
  3. Puzzle 3 - Sidetracked: Map pieces
  4. Puzzle 4 - Dodge Duck Dip Dive Dodge: Word transformations at Davey's Hideout
  5. A Series of Unfortunate Events: Speedbumps
  6. Travel: Uh… travel lol

Teams could interact with Washington Trail throughout the event, continuing to travel as they solved puzzles and unlocked additional resources. Occasionally, they might be forced to complete a current Washington Trail leg to continue.

  1. The team is gated until they have completed a specific number of bounties.
  2. The team chooses to buy supplies and starts traveling.
  3. Travel slowly drains their resources.
  4. At a few spots, they're prompted with some sort of problem. This requires using an award that they received by completing bounties (the photo challenges).
  5. If they run out of resources or fail a speedbump, they "die" and go back to step 2.
  6. At the end of the leg, they get some plot and a puzzle.
  7. After solving the puzzle, they get some more plot and an answer to put in Spiderdog.
