    I can't seem to find the edit function. Anyway, I need to post it as code apparently, because the formatting is messed up. (Ignore the color. I can't seem to get rid of it).


    For example, the following phrase could be transformed as follows: the don dog --> tae ran rhg And here's the quote: b pfnds retri mo t pahg ol ahb arfoe unalen aa sn shnednee, m gsan dosisro er oioe lnd c- odue. le gifsfioneia ritieua, pne yntpeite r- fo ueehsnv as sspcesitt eettrateo enmm ehf a- esc, t oine or eaothio lsmltikn dt fis conds- emtussui. xhii delucasr sf f dpnd oh cehsos iyt us, bearfsosibp ul ma ogi iehrlrcl derir- to msa to spreabktm fon i fve hincorr aeassc- f ra un. lut ecti nuwi le ps oris tussglvee dsoa awio togfcn nc stienliu ngr siraur os s- drhomehki pr titrayr alb itewfu ustaolrts an- p the insoe os naauer dn ino eewcot. A hyphen at the end of the line indicates that the word is split between that line and the next.

    Below is a quote from a famous person, scrambled vertically. This means that each letter was swapped up or down, but in the same column. Punctuation and spaces are not moved.

    For example, the following phrase could be transformed as follows:
    the don
    dog --> tae
    ran rhg

    And here's the quote:
    b pfnds retri mo t pahg ol ahb arfoe unalen
    aa sn shnednee, m gsan dosisro er oioe lnd c-

    1 2 3 4 5 ??? _ ??? | | | - ??? - | ??? | | | ??? - -
    The task is to figure out what fits under '2' in the pattern. The question marks help indicate how much space is assigned to each item in the sequence. (3x5)

    You also get the following two hints:
    1. You may need to operate logically.
    2. The right time might help you find the answer.

    36 pigs are standing in a 6x6 pattern. Of the 36, 7 of them
    have curly tails. They all think this is funny, and are pointing at the
    pig closest to them that has curly tails, except for 3 of them, which are
    confused and pointing in random directions.

    The pigs who have curly tails do not know they have curly tails, and
    as such are pointing to the nearest pig they see with curly tails.

    They can only point in cardinal directions, and for some reason are unable to
    see pigs at a diagonal.

    The pigs who don't see any curly tails are pointing west, just because.
    In the case of more than one equidistant pig with a curly tail, they will
    point in order, W N E S.

    Identify which seven pigs have curly tails, by their coordinates.


    A B C D E F ------------- 1|W S S S S S 2|E E W W W W 3|E S N N W W 4|E S E S N S 5|E N E E W W 6|E N W N E N

    The goal is to determine the ? in the following sequence:
    8 - 34 - 1 - 610 - ? - 1 - 2 - 2 - 34

    You get the following clues:
    A -> C=A+B -> A=B -> B=C -> A as a loop

    And the series of numbers from 1-26.

    Rules: Assign a unique value from 1 to 9 for each rectangle A-I, so that the regions identified add up to the
    displayed value.

    Have fun!

    In the following puzzle, your goal is to balance the entire device so every beam is horizontal as shown.

    Each character space will represent a distance of 1, if you are not using a fixed-width font, you will have some trouble, so adjust accordingly.

    For the letters A-L, replace them with the values of 1-12, using each value only once. 'x' will indicate where an attachment is made, to easier identify the difference. In each case, everything is hanging downwards.

    | x---x---x---x | A | B | x-------x | | | | x---x-x x---x-x | C D E F | G x-x-------x x-------x H I J K L

    Answers can be the values of each letter, you don't need to draw it out.

    Given the following grid, your goal is to fit two lines, one that extends from point A to point B, and one from point Y to point Z.

    However, as always, there are the following restrictions. Each number square indicates how many adjacent or diagonal squares the line must pass through, Xs indicate 0 (as in, the lines cannot come near them)

    You cannot pass through the numbered squares. Also, the lines cannot pass near each other, meaning no part of the first
    line can be in an adjacent or diagonal square from any part of the second line.

    And finally, lines can only move up, down, left or right, not diagonally. Also, 'O' indicates an empty square, and the start and end points count as part of the line for the numbers purposes.



    And here's the grid: O2OOOOOOOOO4OA2 O5OOO6O6OOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOO5OO O7OOXOOOOO1OOOO OOOOOOO44OOOOOY O4OOOOOOOOOOO2O OOOOOOXOOOOOOOO BO56OOOOOO2OOOO OOOOOOOOOO5OOOO 2OOO3OOO4OOO4OO OOOOOOOOOOOOOO4 OO7OO2OOOOOXOOO ZOOOOOO5OOOOOOO O2OOOOOOOO4OOO2 OOO3OOOO5OOOOOO

    The rules are fairly straightforward, with the grid, your task is to draw connective lines between pairs of digits, and the line will be the length of the value of the digit, including both of the squares with the digits in them. To make it 'fit' better, tens will be represented by 0, there are no lines of length greater than ten.

    In the case of 1s, they are single blocks. Twos, for instance, must connect to an adjacent block to be of length two, and so on. The lines can only go up, down, left or right, but can turn at will. They cannot go diagonally and they cannot cross over another line or overlap each other.



    And the puzzle grid is... 0 6 0 3 3 22 93 3 4 0 1 1 1 3 0 007 1 62 1 0 02 1 3 3 3 12 2 144 23 3 3 0 04 4 70 22 1 1 3 5 99 89 0 4 3 2 31 1 90 5 3 0 1 2 2 22 2 0 3 3 33 2 32 4 3 2 3 220 1 39 4 1 1 1 05 01 3 0598 6 44 22 45 5 39 9 3 3 3 4 5 5 3 3 30 9 9 1 3 4 0 6 32 0 2 3 22 3 39 23 4 22 23 3322 9 43 0 90 9 22 13 90 4 022 37 201 1 4 3 2 2 1 44 4 2 0 2 3 0 22 2 9910 22 1 13 9 9 1 1 2 7 1 2 22 1 22 22 3 3 42 1 2 3 1 2 0 40 3 3 3 3 2 1 1 91 1 22 1 0 134 6 22 4 1 4 13 99 31 9 16 1 22 5 3 2 9 90 2 3 44 25 224 2 7 2 7 3 3 1 2 3 42 1 2 7 94 4 79 31 3 3 4 22

    Found this online. I haven't figured it out yet, but it looks interesting.


    The only help you get is the answer is an integer, the rest is up to you. 12333222321000012333222321 22322132422000011223242311 33533243733011112345353521 33533243733133310122243521 33422132533134311222122422 33533222533133322221012533 33533222533011123543222533 22322121322000022322121322 24666555654333345666555642 11222222222222222222222211 24666555654333344434455642 22322121322000021202142311 33533222533011132303263521 33533222533133342303263521 22323231433134342303263522 12335342533133342303263733 12335342533011133535363733 11223231322000022323242422 12333222321000012333222321

    Here a puzzle about finding patterns in the number e, however, nothing so mathematically intense. The goal is to find the highest and lowest possible sum for 10 adjacent digits in a 10x10 grid of the first 100 digits of e. Digits cannot be re-used, and you must navigate the grid to horizontal or vertical adjacent points, not diagonally.

    For reference, the first 100 digits of e form the following grid:

    2 7 1 8 2 8 1 8 2 8 4 5 9 0 4 5 2 3 5 3 6 0 2 8 7 4 7 1 3 5 2 6 6 2 4 9 7 7 5 7 2 4 7 0 9 3 6 9 9 9 5 9 5 7 4 9 6 6 9 6 7 6 2 7 7 2 4 0 7 6 6 3 0 3 5 3 5 4 7 5 9 4 5 7 1 3 8 2 1 7 8 5 2 5 1 6 6 4 2 7

    For example, an answer could be the entire right column, which would come out to a sum of 63. It doesn't need to be a straightline though, that's an example. Answers are scored by the difference between their 10 highest and 10 lowest adjacent cells.

    Sorry, stupid notepad doesn't paste well here. Let me try to fix this for you:



    XX 1 6 XX 3
    --------------
    X |O O O O O O|
    3 |O O O O O O|
    5 |O O O O O O|
    4 |O O O O O O|
    X |O O O O O O|
    X |O O O O O O|
    --------------
    XX 2 1 XX 3

    I think I fixed it, but I had to used some tape (the X's). The X's are just spaces that the post made me use for correct alignment--so ignore them. Top: 1 is over the first column, 6 the second, 3 the fourth. Bottom: 2 is under the first, 1 the second, 3 the fourth.

    The rules are simple, fill out the 6x6 grid with the numbers 1-6, which will
    only occur once each per row or column. The numbers will represent the
    'height' of that square. The numbers provided around the border of the
    grid will be how many pillars you can see, looking down that column or
    across that row. Any shorter pillar behind a larger pillar cannot be seen.

    Eg, if a row was 1 4 5 2 6 3, a 4 would be placed on the left, to indicate the
    1, 4, 5 and 6 height pillars are visible, and a 2 on the right, to indicate the
    3 and the 6 height pillars can be seen.

    And the grid is:
    1 6 3
    --------------
    |O O O O O O|
    3 |O O O O O O|
    5 |O O O O O O|
    4 |O O O O O O|
    |O O O O O O|
    |O O O O O O|
    --------------
    2 1 3

    Not sure why the box is messed up, but I think you can figure out that those 3 lines are supposed to by moved over one space to the left.

    This puzzle is optimization crossed with reverse boggle. The goal is to form the grid to contain as many words as possible.

    Like boggle, words are formed by connecting adjacent or diagonal letters in a sequence until the word is formed. The difference in this puzzle is you are allowed to doubleback, using the same letter square more than once in the same word.

    The goal is to insert as many of the following country names as you can into the grid:
    Aruba Bolivia Brazil Bulgaria Canada Chad China Cuba Fiji Ghana Guam Guatemala Haiti India Latvia Mali Malta Nauru Niue Oman Palau Panama Poland Romania Samoa and Uganda.


    And finally, the shape of the grid is as follows:
    O
    OO
    OOO
    OOOO
    OOOOO
    OOOOOO
    OOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOOO

    Where each O represents an empty square to be used.
