We have decided to shorten this years Christmas challenge based on feedback from the participants of previous challenges.
Below is a list of this years Christmas ciphers, a cipher will automatically unlock each day for 7 days starting 7PM (GMT+0) Friday December 18th through to Friday, December 24th.
The ciphers will get progressively harder and more complex each day.
The scoring system this year is mostly the same as last year, Each of the ciphers is worth 10 points, once the cipher is solved it will lose 1 point for each solve it gets down to 1 point, for example, the second solver will be given 9 points and the third will get 8 points.
All of the ciphers will remain active and answer submissions will be accepted until December 31st 23:59PM (GMT+0). The winner will be officially announced at 7PM (GMT+0) on January 1st 2021, this announcement will be posted on the Discord server and on the website.
Once you have solved a cipher and have the solution, please send it to the staff member named at the top of the page via Direct Message. Sending it to the wrong admin may delay points being added and you may not be awarded the correct amount of points. You can find the staff members on the Discord server.
