ATH 2013:

Armchair Treasure Hunt 2013

Title: Space Truckin'
Setters: Brian Jackson & Phil Stockton
Themes: Deep Purple & Space Travel

Results, Prizes and Special Awards

Points were awarded for each answer, solve or observation using a mixed marking scheme. For the majority of more straight-forward items, a pre-defined set number of point(s) was awarded to any team that got the answer right. For some of the more complex puzzles, the points awarded were equal to the number of incorrect or omitted answers to that puzzle. These parts then are valued according to their perceived level of difficulty.

You can peruse both the marking scheme and the detailed Team marking scoresheet should you so wish.
