Ever since he was young, Colby's had big dreams of winning the tri-state cookoff. After years of training (hours of YouTube videos), Colby's ready for the big leagues.
Before appearing on TV, he'll need to answer a series of skill-testing questions in the form of a 4-page application. Colby's pretty confident on these... but just in case, can you help him recall his past experiences, submit the application, and win the cookoff?

Colby’s Curious Cookoff is the perfect balance of cute and clever, and it is a monumental addition to the puzzle hunt canon. Perhaps most impressively, it’s a proof-of-concept that puzzle hunts can be both accessible and interesting, and I believe it will be enjoyable to complete novices as well as to puzzle hunt pros. Boxaroo’s in-person escape room Storyteller’s Secret is one of my all-time favorites, and seeing their sleek design sensibility, technical prowess, and innovative meta structures translated to the digital medium was an absolute delight.
