  • Note: The above should render as a bunch of flag emoji, which Windows 10 and 11 apparently don't support (!), so here's a screenshot if you want to see it.

Hint 1:

This is a total Chad move

Hint 2:

What is a Chad move?


P.S. Now that this is solved, here's the link to the Python code I used to generate it:

Gist


Thanks PuzzlingFerret for the screenshot.

    $\begingroup$ I am using Windows and Microsoft refuses to implement any country flags emojis in order to avoid political controversies, showing them as two-letter codes instead. So, what I see here is just "ROTDROTDROTDRORO ROTDROROROTDRORO". So, can someone post a screenshot of what it looks like in some other platform? $\endgroup$ May 12 at 6:36

    $\begingroup$ @VictorStafusa, the issue seems to happen with IE11, Edge and Chrome, but it works on Firefox for Windows. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Amessihel it's because Firefox uses its own font renderer and font to support emoji on even OSes that don't support that like older Windows or Linux $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @glennjackman the flags are 99% indistinguishable for me (I am not colourblind) - the challenge to this puzzle seems to be to look for a difference where there doesn't seem to be one. This can be used to comapre the hex codes: embed.plnkr.co/plunk/ERaf37 (enter #bc0a28 and #c90c21). It's showing a 1% difference for me $\endgroup$ May 13 at 14:45

$\begingroup$

A "Chad move," as described in the hints, seems to involve

two identical (or nearly identical) flags, such as those of Chad and Romania.

These are each grouped together in sets of eight. Interpreting these as

binary gives us ASCII character codes. For example, the first group (choosing Romania as 0 and Chad as 1) gives us 01011001, which is "Y".

Continuing this pattern, we get:

01011001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01101000 01100001 01110110 01100101 00100000 01110011 01101111 01101100 01110110 01100101 01100100 00100000 01110100 01101000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01110000 01110101 01111010 01111010 01101100 01100101 00100001

or, in other words,

You have solved this puzzle!

Additionally, the title gives us

01010100 01000100, which translates as "TD", the two-letter country code for Chad. Truly a Chad move.

    $\begingroup$ According to this blog, in in GeoGuessr's Battle Royale mode, "'The Chad move' is where a player positively identifies the country on screen as being Romania, but then before selecting Romania, instead initially 'guesses' at Chad. [...] a (seemingly) Romanian flag then pops up in the 'already made guesses' corner of the screen, meaning that other competitors wonโ€™t guess at Romania and will be knocked out." $\endgroup$ May 11 at 21:31
  • $\begingroup$ @2012rcampion Yes, thank you! I forgot to explain :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I was going to ask how we know which is 0 and which is 1, but given that we have 8 flags in each block and we're rot13(rapbqvat NFPVV), then we can always choose 0 first. $\endgroup$ May 12 at 7:42
