Decryptonite v3.0 is over. We deeply appreciate the efforts all users put into solving the event throughout its duration.
We would appreciate some feedback at our Facebook page.
We apologise for the 48 minute delay with which Decryptonite v3.0 began. Due to some unavoidable circumstances, we were able to roll out the event with a certain delay, however we deeply value our users and the patience you have shown. Any inconvenience caused is deeply regretted.
Decryptonite is a Cryptic Hunt and you need to participate in it as an individual participant and not as a group. Any discussions with regard to questions and answers through any means of communication (public/private blogs/social networks/email/sms/mobile phones etc.) with anyone is strictly prohibited. The participation of any/all such participant(s), if comes in the notice of administrators, will immediately be cancelled with no further intimation to the participant in this regard.
Any such activity in your knowledge should also be sent to email@example.com with the email subject - "Unethical Participation" for appropriate action.
Instead of a standard leaderboard, for Decryptonite v3.0, we are in the process of implementing a system where users will be able to see only their own ranks. The system will be live in a few hours; we appreciate your patience!
Please check your spam / junk folders for the password, if it's not present in the inbox.

The Passwords are sent to email addresses of all the student participants.
If you have not got any mail from us, it means either your school has not registered your name OR the email registred by the school is incorrect.

The event entails a
Cryptic Treasure Hunt
in which students through their own login ids make their way through a series of online levels of increasing difficulty.
Participants will be ranked in ascending order of the number of levels solved and the time (e.g. 15:36:21 on November 18) at which they crossed their last solved level (time taken to solve an individual level is irrelevant).
On some levels, the participants will encounter some clues which shall all,
together, point to one answer.
Participants may be given different versions of the same level. However,
scrupulous care will be taken in designing different versions of the same level
so as to ensure that the difficulty and methodology behind solving each version
of the level is same.
Version #1: Decode "dwtmbkzm". Anwser: exunclan
Version #2: Decode "bqqmf". Answer: apple
In both cases the approach to decrypting is the same. Go one letter forward or backward.
Clues may be presented in a number of forms, including, but not limited to the:
anything that's on the screen
The participants may look for answers anywhere, including, but not limited to, the Internet.
However, discussion of the levels and their answers with any person via any form of communicationface (face discussion, telephone, email, chat, videoconferencing, social networking platform) is strictly prohibited during the duration of the event. The organisers reserve the right to disallow participation to anyone suspected of doing so.
Answers will always be lower-case, alphanumeric and will contain no spaces, unless stated otherwise. E.g. if the answer to Level 0 is "I am Answer", input "iamanswer".
Don't ignore any of the clues. If they weren't important, they wouldn't be there.
Beware of the spelling you enter, we cannot auto correct your spellings.
Remember that there are individual prizes and you are in competition with your friends as well.
Students of DPS RK Puram will be allowed to participate but shall remain non-competitive at all times.
Individual prizes will be given to the top 3 rank holders after the event.
Prizes will also be given to schools for Best Overall Performance (
Weighted average of scores
) and Highest Participation.
There is no participation fee for Category I Activities.
