Code Sheet


Description

After escaping the arena, teams were instructed to meet a contact in a hotel room who would give them the password to the secret District 13. When they went up to the room, they discovered a skeleton wearing a headlamp. On the desk was a pad of codesheets.


Location

Courtyard Marriott Alexandria Old Town
2700 Eisenhower Ave Alexandria, VA 22314

Teams were directed to this location with the following in-app flavor text:

The location of District 13 has been uploaded to your App, but it's heavily encrypted. You'll need to get the password from our agent in order to decrypt it.

For security purposes, the only agent who knows the password has to stay mobile, so you'll have to meet him at his current safe house. Unfortunately, there may be a snag. The agent is supposed to check in every week, but he is two days overdue. Be careful, you may be walking into a trap.

Look for the Piecekeeper in the lobby.
