I)ruid has been bringing challenges and puzzles to DEF CON himself for over two decades, and under the Rogue Signal brand for nearly half of that time. This year, for DEF CON 30, we significantly upped our game by building and branding a custom Scramble! game interface that we’ve dubbed “Hac-Man“.
Multiple folks here at Rogue Signal are Texas burners (as in, people that attend Burning Man, or other regional burn events), and as such frequently attend Texas’s biggest regional burn, Burning Flipside, and are part of a pirate Theme Camp called Tortuga. This year, we decided to create a game for Tortuga in the form of a treasure hunt.
