The 21st annual Military Electronic Combat Hardware Training Competition (Mechmania) is fast approaching! The competition ranks cyberwarriors by pitting them against each other in a simulated cyber-warfare environment. However, there is one major catch – since the United Nations Network Security Agency (UN-NSA) deems it too dangerous for human cyberwarriors to participate, they have instructed you to build a computer program to do so instead!
Should you accept this mission, you and up to 3 friends will have 24 hours to build, test, and deploy your automatic cyberwarriors against the world’s finest cybercommanders. The UN-NSA will provide meals and snacks to all participants as well as prizes for the best performances.
Good luck, cybercommander. You’ll need it out there.
PuzzleBang, the annual week-long puzzle contest, is back again in 2015! Teams will solve a series of puzzles throughout the week, concluding with a metapuzzle on Saturday. Just finding out about PuzzleBang? It's not too late! Grab a few friends and give this puzzle a shot!
