Day 3 QR Image


We clearly have to either scan every QR code or find the correct QR code.
So we simply use an online tool that splits up GIF files based on their frames (link).
We download all the frames (29 images exist so its likely that each frame corresponds to one character in the nugget).

This turns out to be the case, we scan every code in order to get the flag.

The Challenge


A rather interesting challenge. I wasn’t too happy with my solution but it works.
I split up parts 1 and parts 2 so the code can be read more easily.

Part 1 – Santa Solo Trip


Part 2 – Santa + Robo Santa

I didn’t like the use of the santasTurn boolean here too much but couldn’t think of a nicer way to complete the task (in the 15 minutes before I went to sleep!).
