Hi everyone, I did this last year for the first time with my school and it was such a cool experience. They aren’t doing it again, but I wanted to see how far I could make it on my own (I didn’t get past challenge 9A last time).
It was so much fun to learn how to code break from scratch, a test of my maths and programming skills, but, honestly, one of the most fun aspects of the challenge was the story that unravelled after you finally decrypted the code. However, I kind of petered off after the last few challenges and didn’t get to the end, and some of it was going over my head already. So I wanted to ask, how much of last year’s tale is nescessary to understand this one?
Regardless I hope everyone has a lot of fun this year,
