A history of clues and puzzles solved, codes cracked, and information located for the duration of the hunt. Please feel free to add to this list, include details that are missed and give credit where it is due.

First TasksEdit

The first day of the hunt, the runners had no tasks assigned from the task list, the hunters had to find the tasks.

Wired March issue had Ocurity ad in the back which lead to www.wired.com/repomen

Red laser scan of barcodes gave each runner an Oz alter identity.

Tasks were found in the Repomen movie trailer, listed by Oz identity.

Gertrude Grummond: March 16thEdit

On March 16th, Lexi Raiman posted new clues to two new packages. One of them was a rebus puzzle, found on Deviantart in the Repo Men Artiforg Design contest. The puzzle was one of the toughest yet, but finally in a collaboration between @GenevaC, @Melpoemene, @LotusHenna and @Eviltikimonkey, we figured it out. H + arm + on + IX (nine in roman numerals). @GenevaC's epiphany on the roman numeral was our clincher!


Harmonix! We tracked down Harmonix Music Services in Cambridge, and @melpoemene had someone give the password (also in the clue: "I am with the Repo Men") to retrieve it.

Ophelia Mitchell: March 16thEdit

On� March 16th, Lexi Raiman posted new clues to two new packages.� One of them was� � http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/af299/TheUnionCares/opheliadata.png.� From these numbers, @melpoemene discovered the following message:� FIND THE SHAGGY MAN.

Hunters are still looking into the meaning of this clue.

The contact for the package is NOT Leslie Evans of Shaggyman.com. He has been contacted and requested that there be no more phone calls or e-mails. (also, the guy is pretty cool!)

Gertrude Grummond: March 16th�Edit

The second clue was a picture puzzle from Gertrude Grummond's file (http://cs.condenastdigital.com/cs/wordpress/repomen/?p=1351). Once Portaplaya posted the semiphore translated to the letter "D", Moongoddess realized the solution was D+evian+tart = deviantArt.com. The hunters immediately discovered a Repo Men art contest (http://browse.deviantart.com/contests/2010/repomen/) had been held and began scouring the entries submitted. <insert name here> discovered Gertrude's submission (http://gertieg.deviantart.com/art/my-art-class-s-submission-157364770).


Hunters are still deciphering this clue.
