Defcon 26 Final Score

Here are the results from the 21st Defcon Scavenger Hunt.

It is important to note that the 3rd place team consisted of one person. The previous best placing for a one person team was 4th at DC20.

We did a pre-con list once again.

We added a couple new rules this year in an attempt to improve submissions. We added rule 4 to encourage teams to impress us, it goes hand in hand with the submission attempt mechanism we added last year. We also get very tired saying how to submit items, as teams routinely show up and start turning in items incorrectly, so we made rule 5.

We also added a new element to the game with the #pantslessvillage, which ran 2PM – 6PM on Saturday, where teams earned an extra point for submissions made while not wearing pants.

The text of the list can be found here.

The year between DC25 and DC26 was rough for all of our judges; our personal lives impacted the planning to such an extent that the printed list wasn’t up to our standards, so most of it was rewritten Thursday night before con.
