What is this?
glyph is an online puzzle hunt! It consists of a series of puzzles of varying difficulty. It takes place over two days, but you’ll have time to sleep in between! Outside of the event, our previous puzzles are still able to be viewed, so feel free to get stuck in!
You’ll need to create an account to take part.
The hunt is designed to be enjoyed in conjunction with our Discord server which can be found here. We use Discord to help teams when needed, and generally have fun as a community while doing the hunt. If you are not in a registered team on the Discord server, then it is unlikely you will receive assistance.
- Join us on Discord: This is the main way the admin team interact with players: for chat, support and above all memes.
- Create an account.
- Join a team - the team size limit is 7.
- Solve some puzzles from one of our previous events if you haven't already. You can navigate to past events using the drop-down at the top left, and we have also compiled a list of example puzzles if you want a more focused set.
- Read the help page, especially if you've never done a glyph before. We don't always include explicit hints for techniques that are on the help page!
The event starts on Friday 15 March 2024 at 18:00 GMT. When you have correctly solved a puzzle, the next one will unlock. If you are one of the first five teams to complete the puzzles on Friday, you’ll earn a head start for Saturday’s puzzles, up to a maximum of 30 minutes.
The first of Saturday’s puzzles will unlock at 12:00 GMT (unless you have a head start). The first team to complete all of Saturday’s puzzles will be the winner!
There is a maximum of 7 players permitted per team. We recommend around 5 people for best enjoyment, but you are welcome to play with fewer!
