NIT2000 Game


By 5:00 am Sunday morning, we're getting pretty punchy, and starting to become incoherent. Around sunrise, we fall victim to another team's clever deception: some members of Team Silver run out of a forest as we drive by, and we run into the woods assuming the clue must be hidden somewhere there. We're actually supposed to be looking for a clue at a location further up the road. We eventually find the clue, but it's not very well-constructed (the clue is based on a particular version of the Christian Bible, and we've got a different version) and we're not thinking very clearly. We fall from first place to fifth, and spend the rest of the morning trying to catch up.

We follow Game Control's suggested driving route on our way to the finish line, and run into this: bumper-to-bumper traffic, as far as the eye can see
