Stuck?

If you’re stuck, look at the inteGIRLS Guide to Puzzle Solving

Use Google!! Many of the puzzles will be impossible to solve without using the Internet.

EXTREMELY USEFUL WEBSITES: Nutrimatic and dCode.

EXTREMELY COMMON MECHANIC: indexing: for example INTEGIRLS [5] is G, the 5th letter.

Some of the puzzles will give a phrase that has to be turned into the answer. For example, the phrase MIRZAKHANIFIRSTNAME, referencing the Iranian mathematician Maryam Mirzkhani, would lead to the answer MARYAM.

In August, inteGIRLS hosted a Puzzle 101 seminar where we went over the basics of solving puzzles.
