We will be attending our first MOGA event this Saturday in central Illinois, and we have signed up to compete in the first Wizard's Challenge. Each competing team will be given a packet of puzzles to solve, then one of us per team will go find the locations to get credit for our solves somehow. No electronic devices are allowed for the solving, so we are assuming that the puzzles will not involve internet research or cache page "wizardry".
Soooo.... my fellow puzzlers.... Without giving away any tricks of the trade in this public forum, what should I make sure I know, and if paper "cheat sheets" are allowed, what should we bring with us? I'm good to go with sudoku, kenken, logic puzzles, but should I bring images for Morse code, pigpen code, leet, other codes I don't have memorized? (I actually solved a puzzle in Star Trek Romulan earlier today! ) What else should I be studying in the next couple of days to make the most of our time (2.5 hours) with the puzzles?

I'd bring those images, as well as some kind of rot13 decoder ring. Have fun!

I have enough puzzle DNA of my own, thank you, but I have drunk the koolaid put out by many a Wisconsin puzzler (there are quite a few other puzzle locales around the state besides Selzzup, you know), so I'm fortified that way. Just wanted some suggestions of what to pack in my "bag of tricks".
