Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

I thought part of the Wanderer was putting it back together. Or are you saying that’s a crazy hard challenge? Yeah, putting the wanderer back to it's start is more difficult than opening it, imo. But the first box is pretty much just a quick, easy reset once it's open. You don't have to solve it in...

Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

First box is really good! Took me awhile to figure it out and I couldn't believe how simple it really is. Keep us updated with your progress!

Re: The DanLock

Such a good puzzle! I love the sort of infinite loop of impossibility you get stuck in. Took me awhile to get that last portion.

Re: Sonic games tessarisis puzzle - help

I wrote a program to translate the symbols from a picture to characters and used crude frequency analysis along with a english dictionary to decipher. Was quite a nice little project :D That's a lot fancier than how I do it. I just assign a letter to each symbol then run it through a solver online....

Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

I thought I would give the First Box a try, as I needed to give my hands a break in between sessions on Indigo. Yeah right... :shock: Think again Brassassin. This is not a puzzle to do ‘on the side’. I think I will put it away, looking pretty on the shelf. This needs my full attention, so it will h...

Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

Hmm... I'm not sure how difficult it was for other people but I think my open time was around 20 minutes. I found putting it back to the start was a little harder, which is odd since you have seen the whole mechanism once you open it.

Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

I agree pretty much with Swyrm's review. In my opinion the aluminum cross is a better puzzle. It really is a great puzzle. Sweta cross was made to be easier. I believe the story was that it was a gift for a group of people who aren't puzzlers. It's still a neat puzzle and worth having a copy if you ...

Re: NG puzzles

Did anyone else get a colored Loki? Every picture I see is the standard black and silver.

I got blue. But they also had orange and another color.

Re: Math Brain Teaser

Can it have more than one answer? I think I may have come to the same conclusion as the last guess that was made.

Spoiler:
18, 27, 36, 45

If it's one of those, I'm not sure how to narrow it down to a specific one?
