    Hackfortress is back again!

    Bring your thinking caps, bring your baseball caps, bring your Bonk energy drink and prepare for a spectator event of epic proportions.

    For those that haven't played before, here's a quick overview:

    So, what exactly is Hackfortress? It's 30 minutes of non-stop, no holds barred, hacking and Team Fortress 2 action. In those 30 minutes 6 Tf2 players and 4 Hackers will square off against another team of Tf2 players and hackers. Your goal: to score as many points as possible. How do you score points? By solving hack puzzles of all shapes and sizes. Those range from the ridiculous to the obscenely technical. You can also score points in Tf2 by doing what you normally do in that game: Dominate, kill, capture, take revenge. That's not where the fun ends though. Want to block your opponents from submitting a challenge? Want to set them on fire? Of course you do. Who wouldn't? As you accomplish tasks you'll earn coins that can be spent in our "hackconomy". Once the thirty minutes is up, the team with the most points wins.
    What you need to know now is that if you've got a team and want to sign up, do it early (drop an email to: We fill up quick. Don't have a full team, but still want to play Tf2 or Hack? No worries, drop by our spot and we'll get you hooked up with a group. If you sign up, or if you just want to check us out look for our Iphone or Android app or follow us on Twitter (@tf2shmoo).

    Heads up for all players intending to compete on the hack side of things, make sure your laptop can connect to a wired network. Defcon is a terrible location to try and run a wifi network so the contest only has a wired network.

      Just wanted to say thanks to all the organizers of Hack Fortress. This is my favorite competition and I know it is a lot of work to put together and setup all the equipment.

      Thanks again for another great year!
