Yesterday was officially the first day I failed to complete the puzzle on the day, due to a busy schedule. I'm still planning on getting caught up and saving Christmas, but now I've got a bit of a hill climb. How caught up are you?
In today’s puzzle, the elves have cooked up some sort of graph-based regular expression tree, and they need help parsing through it to get messages from their satellite in order to get pictures of a sea monster! These elves sure do spend a lot of time coming up with their own custom interfaces and protocols.
As always, this is the spot where I’ll plug any leaderboard codes shared from the community.
Ryan's Leaderboard: 224198-25048a19
If you want to generate your own leaderboard and signal boost it a little bit, send it to me either in a DEV message or in a comment on one of these posts and I'll add it to the list above.
