Cornucopia - Bend the Rules


Teams arrived at Hains Point to find a massive cornucopia surrounded by starting regions for each of the 24 teams. When teams were standing in their circles, the countdown began and the game was underway!

First puzzle consisted of three mini-puzzles followed by a metapuzzle. After solving each mini, teams would receive 8 colored discs. Scattered around the ground were various survival items. Leaning up against the cornucopia were groups of weapons.
