    Default PuzzleCrack 2008

    http://puzzlecrack.com/2008/

    Starting on October 20th, and lasting through the 24th, this website will be home to a series of puzzles designed to challenge and entertain.

    Every day, at 10:00am central time, a new puzzle will be posted. The first person (or team) to correctly solve each puzzle will win a prize. On Friday, a larger "metapuzzle" will go live. The metapuzzle will be culmination of everything worked on throughout the week.

    The goal is to have fun and find the best puzzle solvers out there. Anybody and everybody is eligible and encouraged to partcipate. Grab the most clever people you know, form a team, and dive into the puzzles.
    This is by the same group that brought us PuzzleCrunch last spring. Do we want to have a Tweleve team to try these?

    Some people are lost in the shuffle. I'm shuffling along with the lost.

    I'd be interested in helping, but I suspect that most puzzles will be solved before I'm up and about for the day. (2am)

    I'll have to look again, but I thought that Puzzle Crack was historically more programming oriented.

    OK, it looks like I was mistaken. I'll help out when I'm able, as it is during work hours (like that's ever stopped me ).

    I'm in school until around 5 Eastern every day, so I'm also kinda in knocka's position, but I'd also be willing to help, sounds fun!

    Count me in. I have trainings all that week at 8-9am central, so I should be around by the time the puzzles are posted.

    Can't do the timing. Sorry.....I'd love to help this time, but I can't always be there when I need to be.

    Sooooo unreliable....Bad me!!


    No, I really do wish I could, but I can't. Good luck to those who can!!
