I'm part of a team hosting a puzzle hunt for middle school and high school students, and I'm trying to get an idea of the difficulty of various puzzles.

If you do figure an answer, it would be nice if you could post the time it took you to figure it out as well.

Revelation 6:8

    $\begingroup$ As a side note, @Yllrauei, keep in mind that a puzzling site will have faster solve times than middle school and possibly high school students. The reason it took me about 15 seconds is merely because I was on my phone and had to scroll. But it is a good start to what I hope is a great puzzle hunt! $\endgroup$
