Greek letters are too pretentious, so we use Egyptian hieroglyphs.

This module consists of two rounds.

Round 1: Egyptian Hieroglyphs

  • The module displays the six familiar Egyptian hieroglyphs in a 3×2 arrangement, and a team name.
  • Determine how many of the following criteria are met by each of the Egyptian hieroglyphs.
  • Select the Egyptian hieroglyph that meets a number of criteria different from any other Egyptian hieroglyph.
  • Criterion #1 is met if the Egyptian hieroglyph is in the specified location.
  • Criterion #2 is met if the specified place in the serial number occurs in the team name. If the place is a digit, convert it to a letter (0=Z, 1=A, 2=B, ..., 9=I).
  • Criterion #3 is met if the bomb has at least one of the specified port.

Round 2: Connecting Wall
