You will need python v2.7.x to run the challenge script and the flag checker, but the challenge is theoretically solvable without Python v2.7.x - though it would probably be tricky!
Other Pythons may work - untested

Two small prizes are available (see image at top). The large box has 21 steps to open, the small box 12.

  • First person to find all 8 flags and decent writeup - large prize.
  • Most entertaining writeup by someone finding at least 7 flags - smaller prize.

Challenge closes at 00:00z on 1st July 2015.
Judging for the most entertaining writeup will not begin judging until then.
