The final correct solve will contain all the correct values in each field, in the correct order. Duplicate values are possible.

  3. The first player to submit a correct code on the code input page will be prompted by Hunt Logiq to complete a written solution that outlines how they arrived at their code solve. The player will be given two weeks to produce their written solution. The written solution from the winning player will be judged by the Hunt Logiq staff and compared to the official Crytpiq solution book in order to be considered a solve of skill and not of chance. The written solution submitted by the player must sufficiently match the solution book as judged by the Hunt Logiq staff in order for the player to be considered the winner.

  5. If the player’s written solution does satisfy the criteria of a skill solve and sufficiently matches the solution book created by Hunt Logiq, determined solely by Hunt Logiq, for Cryptiq, within 2 weeks of being asked to do so, their claim to the prize will be accepted and the game will end.
  6. If the player’s written solution does not satisfy the criteria of a skill solve or does not sufficiently match the solution book created by Hunt Logiq, determined solely by Hunt Logiq, for Cryptiq, within 2 weeks of being asked to do so, their claim to the prize will not be accepted and the game will continue.
