I learnt about KringleCon 2 a few days to the submission deadline but decided to attempt it either way. It is based on a series of tasks that you need to complete for an elf to give you tips on how to resolve the main objectives. This year, there were 12 objectives and maybe a similar number of tasks. Being new to CTFs in general, I only managed to complete 4 of the main objectives and finished 5 elf tasks. I am glad that I gave it a go even if I only had 2 days (late starter as I thought it would be too difficult). I will certainly complete the challenge despite the deadline. Can’t wait to start Kringlecon 2020 on time in December!
