    Default Puzzle Masters Challenge - Geocaching

    It is a series of puzzles created by the greatest Puzzle Masters of the Mid Atlantic Region. There are a number of Puzzle Masters contributing to this series. Solve all of the Puzzle Masters' creations, follow the storylines, gather the clues and find the final.

    There have been 3 puzzles published so far. One of them is for subscribers only, but the other two are available to everybody. I haven't had time to dedicate to the puzzles, but they look interesting:
    - Quick Brown Fox +/-25
    - Clueless Again
    - The Song of the Master Sun

    The last one (for subscribers only) has been created by two twelevers (quiet ones, tho).

    Well, I peeked at the first two, and then wondered if I was in over my head, as I am not used to geocaching to begin with, much less jumping into the "master" realm.

    How are you doing so far?

    This newest one you posted, looks a little easier. Meaning, I see a word on the graphic to the right that connects to a path on how to solve it.

    My time for puzzles has been next to nothing during the last two weeks (promotion plus boss going to a conference and needing results urgently), so I have barely looked at the first two. I have some ideas for the third one (the one that is only for subscribers, basically because the cache is hidden near here). The 4th one looks like the easiest of the series so far. I have seen the name of two ciphers, now I am looking for the keyword that goes with one of them.

    Don't let the geocaching part discourage you. What it implies is that the final answer is probably going to be coordinates (either in form of numbers, with the names of the numbers spelled or substituted by their equivalent letter of the alphabet (a-i and o for 0).

    I looked at The Box. I haven't touched the boolean mazes or the crypto, but I worked on the surface areas. Here's what I got.

    I have solved The Song of the Master Sun and I Dislike Numbers.

    I am halfway all three of the mazes in The Box (also have part of the cipher decoded) and have solved the first step in Clueless Again.

    I still haven't had time to look at Uncle Buck's Cards and have only spent about 5 minutes on the Quick Brown Fox.

    Other than Molnar's geometry, is anybody else trying to solve these puzzles?
