The rules are composed to make sure Pandora is fun for everybody. It may be possible that the rules do not cover all situations. In this case it is up to the committee to decide exactly what will happen.
The campus map used during Pandora can be found here. Puzzle solutions which reference building numbers or building names can be found on this map. If another map differs from the map provided above the map above is leading. Also, a translation of the map is provided here and a translation of works of art on the campus is provided here. Naturally, all names used in Pandora will be the official, thus Dutch names.
The playing field of Pandora is limited to parts of the campus. Some parts are forbidden because of security measures or to restrict disturbance of locals and visitors. A map with a complete overview of the playing field can be found here.
The scoring happens on a daily basis. The final score will be calculated by adding the points of all days. The puzzle scoring is divided in a primary and a secondary part. The primary part consists of the first 5 puzzles of the days, and the other 3 puzzles of the days count as the secondary part. The time bonus applies to the primary part and the puzzles in the secondary part get you more points per puzzle.
Killing employees of other companies gets you 4 points per employee.
Every solved and submitted (bonus) puzzle gets you 10 points per (bonus) puzzle.
Requesting a hint costs 10 points per hint.
Every day a time bonus will be given to the companies which solved the primary puzzles. The company which solves the primary puzzles the quickest will receive 80 points. Companies after this will gradually receive less bonus points untill it reaches 40. All teams that complete the first 5 puzzles will receive atleast 40 points as time bonus. See below for the entire time bonus points list. Companies which did not solve all primary puzzles do not receive a time bonus.
At the end of Pandora, each company will be rewarded points based upon their rank in the pandollar ranking
The final score will be calculated using the formulas below:
K = amount of employees killed
PP = amount of solved primary puzzles
SP1 = puzzle 6, 12 points when solved
SP2 = puzzle 7, 14 points when solved
SP3 = puzzle 8, 16 points when solved
E = ranking with solving all primary puzzles
H = amount of hints requested
B = amount of solved bonus puzzles
T = time bonus
PDRank = Rank in the pandollar ordering. First team = 1, last team = 25
The committee is allowed to make changes to or deviate from the scoring.
