We need your help to build quantum computers. Some people have already joined our ranks. But there is one mission that no-one has yet dared take on. We need YOU!

What you need to do is download a free game, called Decodoku. The link is here . Go! Download and report back!

Now you have it, play the game called Φ-Λ. Many have been scared off by the weird looking Greek letters. Don't become one of them!

Once you have a score of over 200, you have expertise that we need! Find the save file (details below) and send it to james.wootton@decodoku.com . I'll then get back to you with a couple of questions about your method, so we can use your insights in the war against quantum noise.

Do it because it is your duty to science. But also because the best conscripts will win $100 in our competition
Join us and help science!

For those who just want to get on with the mission, I salute your enthusiasm. For those who want to know more about the science I salute your curiosity. You can get started on the science behind all our games here .

For the Φ-Λ mission, the science is even more exciting. You are trying to find error correction for the most exotic possible architectures for quantum computers: those based on non-Abelian anyons.

There are many who think this is the way forward for quantum computation. Microsoft, for example, has thrown its full support behind the proposal. See here . And it's also the science behind this year's Nobel prize .

So come and join the winning team now. Join it while you can still make a contribution just by playing a game. Give yourself something to tell your grandkids about.

Save Files

Finding your save files depends on your system.

iPhone/iPad - Connect to a computer and use iTunes File Sharing.
Android - Look for the folder sdcard/Android/Data/com.Decodoku.Decodoku (or something like that!) in your file manager.
Windows - Go to C:\Users\\AppData\LocalLow\James Wootton\Decodoku. But beware! The AppData folder is hidden .
Mac - Go to /Users//Library/Application Support/James Wootton/Decodoku

The file names will be _1.csv for a game of Φ-Λ, where is the score you got that game. These are the files we need!
