Only one thing is certain: as it stands, no one is entirely sure what the challenge – known as Cicada 3301 – is all about or who is behind it. Depending on who you listen to, it’s either a mysterious secret society, a statement by a new political think tank, or an arcane recruitment drive by some quasi-military body.
Which means, of course, everyone thinks it’s the CIA. For some, it’s just a fun game, like a more complicated Sudoku; for others, it has become an obsession.
Intriguing enough for ya?
