Gringo Warrior is a fast-action, scenario-based escape challenge that has been showcased at DEFCON, ShmooCon, ShakaCon, ekoparty, ToorCon, and many other high-energy events around the world.

Can you break out of a prison cell and escape from your captors in order to make your way to freedom?

This event is particularly popular with bystanders and observers... watch the videos of past participants linked here.

A slightly different spin on the ever-popular "escape to freedom" concept first pioneered in Gringo Warrior, the name of this contest is an homage to the classic 1958 film starring Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier in which two individuals make their escape to freedom while shackled to one another.

They must learn to work together if they are to survive. Can you and a teammate do the same?

This game is not an escape challenge, but instead is a contest that rewards finesse, control, and wide ranging knowledge.

I designed Pandora's Lock Box as an open-source contest that anyone could cheaply create, easily transport, and use in a large number of varied configurations.

It just might be the most versatile lockpicking contest ever in such a small package.
