TechnoHunt is a combination of treasure hunt and technology.
There comes a time in every rightly construed mind when it has a ragging desire to go somewhere and dig a hidden treasure. Now here’s a chance for all you techies to fulfil your desire.
Expect ambiguous technological questions, logic & reasoning, various tricky tasks, surprising coding queries, team work & co-ordination and lots & lots of fun.
So get ready for this rollercoaster ride and go accomplish your destiny to hunt down the treasure within.
Get ready for the Ultimate hunt of 2016. Remember what our beloved Captain Jack Sparrow said, “Not all treasure’s silver and gold, mate.”
TechnoHunt 2016 theme is “Mafia”. Participants play as FBI undercover agents. Being undercover, the agents need to get access to the Mafia’s confidential documents which includes details of all Mafia criminal activities.
The word “mafia” is used to refer any organized crime group. In organized crime, there is a hierarchy:
- A Mafia gang or group is known as Family.
- The leader of Mafia family is known as the boss, or don. All major decisions are made by the boss, and money made by the family ultimately flows to him. The boss authority is needed to resolve disputes and keep everyone in line.
- Just below the boss is the underboss. The underboss is the second in command.
- Beneath the underboss are several capos. The number of capos varies depending on the overall size of the family. A capo acts like a lieutenant, leading his own section of the family. He has specific activities that he operates. The capos territory may be defined geographically or by the rackets he operates.
- The dirty work is done by the soldiers. A soldier is the lowest rank among made men. Made man refers to man who has been officially inducted into a Mafia family.
- In addition to soldiers, the Mafia will use associates. Associates are not actual members of the Mafia, but they work with Mafia soldiers and capos on various criminal enterprises. An associate is simply someone who works with the mob, including anyone from a burglar or drug dealer to a lawyer, investment banker, police officer or politician.
- There is one other position within the family that is somewhat legendary -- the consigliere. The consigliere is not supposed to be part of the familys hierarchy. He is supposed to act as an advisor.
As a mission, participants (undercover agents) need to make a way through mafia family from associates to the boss in order to get access to mafia’s confidential documents.
