Was reading some details about Cicada 3301 recently and thought, wether I should write a blogpost about it or not. Then I found this short but very precise introduction video bei Lemmino, who explains it much better then I would be able to do (without giving away exact details about the puzzles):
More details about Marcus Wanner, the alleged winner of the 2012 puzzle, can be found in this article.
What do you think about Cicada? Would you be interested in joining the puzzle solving crew? Or would you get paranoid? 🙂
