Each of the five initial story videos had the Commissioner sitting in front of two conspicuos objects: a clock that had a different time set on it, and a "Puzzle Threat Level" which had a random word on it.
The sixth video had a mysterious message (which was later revealed to be from the Auburn Puzzler) with circles with five different colors.
The "Puzzle Threat Level" words are all colors: roughly blue/green/yellow/orange/red. To solve the puzzle, players should associate the color of the circle with the "Puzzle Threat Level" word and the corresponding clock. Overlaying the circles with the hands of the clock spells out the hidden badge's location.
