An Extraordinary Journey into Madness,
featuring Special Guest Collaborator Mike Selinker!
Over the last three years, Vincent Salzillo has driven scores of players insane with fiendishly complex puzzles. DEXCON 18, he will be joined by a special guest collaborator: Mike Selinker; game designer, puzzle maker, and president of Lone Shark Games. You thought it was tough before? You ain't seen nothing yet!
Thirty participants will enter a huge room on Friday afternoon. The room will be filled with items, art, games, sounds, music, letters, numbers and all sorts of strange clues. The door will lock behind them - bathroom breaks must be chaperoned, and all contact with the outside world stifled. The participants then have five hours to make sense of the chaos and find the FINAL ANSWER that will win the jackpot.
The participants can work independently, or together (either in separate groups or as a whole community). They can work at whatever pace they'd like - but time runs against them. A five-hour countdown timer ticks continuously, and each hour that passes lowers the jackpot by $1,000. If the FINAL ANSWER remains hidden when time expires, the game is over.
Each participant starts with 100 credits and a Clue Envelope. During the game, the participants can trade credits for information or help, or just about anything. The Clue Envelope is worth 100 credits, but ONLY if it remains sealed. Each participant must decide whether to preserve their Clue Envelope, open it, or trade it. If the FINAL ANSWER is communicated, the participant who finds it earns 6,000 credits. The grand prize will then be distributed among all the participants based on percentage of credits - in CASH.
