I’ll save my final rank for later in the post. I am starting to see a pattern where apparently Ulrich and I make these very fun to watch (obviously not intentionally), though this time we had help.
I can’t do my usual detailed per-puzzle rundowns because most of what I had to say for each one was about what was happening around me and where my standing was. This year, we sat at a walled-off booth, solved puzzles on a projector, and had little to no information about how things were around us. Even if it does make this harder to write, I much prefer the lack of distracting information. I had tried to refrain from looking around me too much even when it was possible in previous years.
