I learned to avoid a serious problem I had even before the canyon.
I learned to get across the canyon faster, and without clue 11.
I learned to navigate the swamp without using a permanent marker.

The final result: 3 minutes and 20 seconds!
That is including a re-try at the swamp, so it must be possible to do it even faster (but NOT within a minute)!

Oh, and I learned the importance of double checking everything during/after re-assembly, one time I almost reset the RevoSilver with one element still lying on the table :oops: ... would have been fatal if I had not double checked it!


What is Clue 11? Did I miss something there? Same as the website clue?

anybody that uses any kind of force to open their revomaze is a CHEATER.
any tools besides your hands and your brain is also CHEATING.
if i hear of anyone cheating i will out you publicly,as Chris does not have it in his personality to be verbally abusive even to a CHEATER.
you can cheat on your taxes,you can cheat on your wife,you can even cheat at poker..but if you cheat at the revomaze ,he will know...and i will bash you....be ready.
:D
exceptions to the tools are: a pencil,a marker,paper,a computer...i think you know what i mean. ;)
The hardest part of a Revomaze is putting it down

We now have a tighter control on Open Forum access - multiple photos to be sent, showing all sides of the maze to inspect its condition.

I think that's a good idea - also, isn't there an inspection at the live event? That should deter anyone who's actually serious about it. I can't imagine spending 100 quid for something then smashing it :(
