In Person Hunt

There are five locations in Sheffield where there are CompSoc stickers. The exact location can be unlocked by answering three ordered cryptic clues. Each cryptic clue’s answer represents one word – and these words together form a what3words location, that is somewhere in Sheffield. Take a photo of the CompSoc stickers that are placed at each location and send one email with your pictures of all 5 stickers *and* the solutions to the cryptic clues through to [email protected]

The quickest time recorded (between registering your in-person hunt with the discord bot, and the sending of your email), will be used to judge the winner. Best of luck! 🤞🎃

Example Location and Worked Solution

  1. Male monarchs
  2. Frequently, in many cases or instances (5 letters)
  3. The _ _ _ _ _ (5 letters) of this scavenger hunt; rhymes with popular Internet phenomenon that regularly contains ‘TOP TEXT’ and ‘BOTTOM TEXT’

Solution: The what3words location is therefore: kings.often.theme

In-Person: You would take a photo of the CompSoc Sticker placed at kings.often.theme, which would be just outside The Diamond, on campus. Once all five photos are collected; they can be emailed with the cryptic clue solutions to [email protected] to submit your entry.
