    Hi everyone,

    Another fantastic day on the floor of PAX Prime, busy talking to new potential agents and meeting some of our seasoned veterans!

    We have met @cowbie @Aquilas and many others. The lines have been insane as always, and there have been all sorts of fantastic costumes.

    The line to the main exhibit hall 10 minutes before the doors opened.

    The booth has been crowded all day everyday, with people fascinated to hear about the adventures of The Black Watchmen. Both Anashel and I were happy to tell everyone about the life of an agent.

    The easy briefcase has been cracked by at least 300 people so far, out of about 2000 that have tried.

    The youngest agents to open the case.

    The hard briefcase was a little more challenging. We had a total of 30 people crack it. So some, it took upwards of 8 hours, the faster took just under 30 minutes.

    An agent very excited to open the hard case after many hours of trying.

    But we were blown way by someone who cracked it in 5 minutes...until he told us he was a TSA agent, who opens suitcases all day at work, and simply picked the lock. Still impressive though!

    @Greenstarfanatic arrived with a delivery of oranges and lemons, and we rewarded him with the original copy of A Look into Toyko, from Baup's coded message.

    Thank you to everyone for welcoming all the new agents to our wonderful community!

    Tomorrow we return to the floor to continue to spread the word of the Black Watchmen!

    I still want to know if the guy in the alley looking all suspicious (not the guy who made the drop) was Jarobi in disguise :)

    Anyways, great to meet you guys!

    Cowbie, yes it was. I can see it from his haircut + height that it was jarobi. Not sneaky at all :D

    You know, he was reading a newspaper which he threw away when he hurried out of the alley. I reached into the trashcan to see if there was any TBW related stuff on it.

    Spoiler alert: it was just a newspaper that had been in a Seattle trashcan.

    In the words of @Daedalus , there's more than one way to set a barn on fire. That's pretty funny.
    In other news, is the solution to the easy briefcase
    270180?

    Yeah, I can confirm.
    I made fun of him at the booth for it the next day. Apparently he only had the hat and then ran out to spy on us with just that as a disguise.

    On another note, after that whole incident, I was left in the rain for about 2 hours waiting for a ride back to the hotel. Fun stuff to follow a mission, eh?

    5 points then to every time someone manages to snap a picture of a developer hiding at a Live Event. They're going to have to be sneakier :)
