Welcome to the Geodyssey puzzle hunt! This hunt consists of the following challenges:
The Local Challenge and Remote Challenge are online puzzle suites. Both offer a wide variety of (mostly) pencil puzzles that include wordplay, logic, trivia, and more. Both of these challenges can be solved remotely using your computer, your wits, and the internet.
You can put your intuition and observation skills to the test with the Hidden Challenge. There’s a puzzle hidden somewhere on this site … find it and solve it to complete the challenge!
(The original version of the Local Challenge included a physical component which required visiting a number of benchmarks and other locations in Broward County, Florida. Groundspeak has removed access to its benchmark pages and data, and some of the locations have been altered to render them unusable. Consequently, the Local Challenge has been reworked to serve as an additional Remote Challenge.)
This puzzle collection has an additional reward for geocachers: each challenge is associated with its own virtual travel bug. When you successfully complete a challenge, you’ll be given the tracking code for its travel bug so that you can prove your puzzle-solving prowess by logging your discovery on geocaching.com.
During the contest period in 2016, two extra puzzles were released that were unrelated to any of the three challenges. The Bonus Puzzle was released on March 14, and the Final Final Puzzle was released on April 1.
This puzzlehunt was inspired by the book Puzzlecraft: How to Make Every Kind of Puzzle by Mike Selinker and Thomas Snyder.
