Hackers Challenge

PreCon Challenges

This event consists of several puzzles released over the following weeks leading up to SAINTCON.

It is open to all to play, whether you are attending SAINTCON or not. Should you still need to register for SAINTCON, please use this URL and referral code.

Scoring will involve individual total solves, creativity, and quickest solves. A prize will be awarded to the winner at SAINTCON.
