IFS Portal Hunt Puzzle Solving Template
Last month's IFS passcode puzzle was a lot of fun, where we had to locate portals and plot the points on a map to determine which character each column of portal photos represented.
To make things quicker, easier and more efficient in solving the puzzle, I put together a Google Sheet that can be used to allow all your FS attendees to collaborate on the sheet and locate portals.
As portals are found, the intel URL is added and there is a special graph that will plot the points to allow users to see what the character is. As the information is filled in, it will automatically populate the passcode.
There are also some stats to see who has discovered the most portals.
The intention of the Sheet is to encourage FS attendees to work together on identifying the portals, the hard work of figuring out the character and everything else is all set up and made to be as simple as possible.
Feel free to use the template for your FS event. Just make a copy of it and follow the instructions.

Here is an example of how it looks:
(Assuming we get the same puzzle again, which hopefully we do as it was a lot of fun!)
