Numbers that repeat are fine.

You go in order to do the original challenge but you can make it easier by using one of the "CheatCodes" to lower the difficulty.

Amanda (daughterofoak) | 3473 comments Once you decide whether to do sand or snow, look at the top of the page in the challenge description. You'll see "Obstacles for Snow" and "Obstacles for Sand".
Click on the spoilers under each to see the list of obstacles.

You can't see the "spoiler" that hides the obstacles on the mobile app. That may be why you can't see them.
