Final Puzzle

PARADOX IS NOW DOWN TO JUST ONE

Congratulations! You've traveled all throughout time with Doc and Marty, and have discovered why we aren't living in the future we always though we would have.

Marty and Doc figured out where they need to go now, but they didn't tell us. They're heading off into the past or the future, but that doesn't mean you have to know yours. Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one.

Also, we apologize for the unnecessary jailing of any time travelers.

If you are a local team, then your future might include the coin! While there are no clock towers on campus, there is the oldest form of time-keeping near the Horseshoe. Find it, and around it you'll see that the timepiece is surrounded by several stone benches. Underneath one of them is the coin, which is yours forever (both in the future and in the past). Please email us at before you start so that we can join you while you find the prize.

If you are a remote team, then please email us at and give us the final phrase used to unlock the history's secrets. We will let you know what place you came in.

From all of us at the USC Puzzle Hunt, thank you folks for playing the puzzles. We hope that this Hunt has been ... real educational.
