Topcoder Scavenger Hunt
I just competed (and finished! - I'm Hitman666) a Topcoder Scavanger Hunt.
Anyways, you have the instructions on how to play on the link above. I've really missed these kind of "hacker games", like back in the days I was very active on hackits.de, but that site is long down now. Anyone playing similar games today, which you can recommend? I made my own for the project on university: http://nikola-breznjak.com/challenge/.
The questions were quite cool (no, no answers here, you'll have to research it yourself):
- How many 'Albert' monkeys died in the US Space program?
- What was the original name of Nintendo's Super Mario?
- How many female fighter pilots were there in the original Star Wars trilogy?
- How many different combinations of coins are possible for the US dollar?
