Race Around the Block

As I discovered, sometimes working together to solve a case can keep both parties from doing the same actions, but sometimes it won't. At least, working together usually allows one party to see how to do things in the right order.

0. Start where you see one city three times on a red line. Stand facing the newest one. Go to the instruction of the building number of the other starting point.

0. Start facing away from where the neon room numbers glow brightly. In front of the other starting point is a sign with a number between two symbols at the bottom. Go to this numbered instruction.

1. Go down the ramp, then turn left through the double doors.

Follow this hallway. Take the next set of stairs down one floor, then go left through the double doors. Find the next stair(s) on the right. Go through the double doors and walk up the stairs as far as you can go.

Go to the instruction two more than the instruction you followed directly before your previously executed instruction.

Go past the stairs and follow this hallway whenever it shifts. Continue until you reach a picture of a predictive instrument. Count the number of letters on the top row of the sign in this picture. Go to the instruction with this number.

3. Go up the closest set of stairs until you are as high as you can go. This is the checkpoint. Find a small white tag with the string "1i!" on it. This tag also includes a string with two numbers, a letter, and five numbers. Pass this string to the other team.

Take the two-digit number you were passed and subtract the building number of the other team at their checkpoint. Go to the instruction that is three more than this difference.

4. Go down the stairs until you can pass through a door to a place you've been before.

Go to the instruction three more than the building number of the other team at their checkpoint.

5. Continue straight ahead until you come to a set of stairs on your right. Go to the instruction one more than your previously executed instruction.

6. Continue down this hallway in the direction you were going. At the next intersection, turn right, and go through the double doors. At the first intersection, turn right, then left.

8. Follow this hallway, going straight at any intersection. Some of the doors in this hallway have food warning signs. Count the number of these doors. The last door in this hallway is the checkpoint. Pass the number you counted to the other team. Go to the instruction number that is the same as the building number of the other team at their checkpoint.

20. Straight ahead you will see an arrow. If your previously executed instruction was numbered between 1 and 13 inclusive, turn so that your back is to the sign where the arrow is. If your previously executed instruction was numbered between 14 and 26 inclusive, then go in the direction opposite of the way the arrow is pointing. Otherwise, go in the direction the arrow is pointing.
