Caching Conundrum October 2012 Results

A standing-room-only crowd gathered for October’s Conundrum,  which featured a mystery death match.  The contestants gathered without knowing what was in store for them, which turned out to be a few puzzles of design by the event organizers and a few classic puzzles culled for this occasion.  The groans were more than metaphorical, as several puzzlers insisted some of the questions had no answers.  After a half hour of brain-busting competition debbiedoesgeo snagged the top spot.  Full results follow:
