About The Fantastic Marathon
The Fantastic Marathon is a trip around the world in puzzle-solving form. As you solve puzzles, you will unlock new puzzles. Puzzles can be:
Route Info puzzles and Detour puzzles have hints available, broken into 3 different levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Bronze hints are generally the least helpful and provide a slight nudge. Gold are the best hints and will often be explicit.
Teams start off with 1 Gold hint, 2 Silver hints, and 3 Bronze hints. You will earn one Gold hint every 24 hours, one Silver every 12 hours, and one Bronze every 8 hours.
Your competitors (the 12 other teams) will be eliminated at pit stops. Once all 12 teams have been eliminated (by solving their meta), you will unlock one final puzzle.
Once you finish up Puzzle Boat 4, you'll have access to a special issue of P&A that serves as an Epilogue.
