  1. The answer should be plain to see

    Lol. That's what lead to one of the other guesses. Plain to see--> crystal clear. Crystal would be fancier drinking cups though. And I couldn't quite call it white.
  2. The answer should be plain to see

    Lol. I saw people making it on tv once. The process is pretty impressive. Think it was a specialized kind though. Not good for mass production. Nice riddle.
  3. The answer should be plain to see

    Still struggling with the last line.
  4. Riddle

  5. The answer should be plain to see

    Maybe not quite white but
  6. a barrel of pickles

    Assuming the 99% refers to weight...
  7. Next card is Red

  8. Cubicle Stack #2

    Well, there goes your curve estimation. I don't remember the situation but there were certain combinations that I could calculate with some multiplication. I think one of them was a CE combination. But of course the other combinations didn't feel like cooperating. I'll try to work on this over the weekend. Agree on your pink combinations except for XMEE. Should be the same count as EEM, right?
  9. Shortest roads

  10. Cubicle Stack #2

    Sorry to say I didn't save my counts. Slightly burnt out from counting, recounting, and rerecounting the previous ones. lol. Maybe I'll try again when I've had more time to recover.
  11. 3 Quickies

  12. Cubicle Stack #2

    I did some quick counting for the easier ones. I've noticed that at least up to this point, the number of combinations of C, E, M, and X is (# cubelets removed+1)^2. There are 25 combinations for 4 cubelets removed. The ones including X would be the same as the counts for 3 cubelets without X. I did not count the combinations that have 2 or more E's or CCEM, CCMM, AND CEMM. I got 191 for the rest. I'm guessing the ones I didn't count are going to be pretty high so maybe around 500?
  13. Cubicle Stack #2

    When you remove a cubelet, the kind you remove matters because it changes the shape. When you take away 26, it doesn't matter which one is left. There may be 4 different labels but in the end, when it comes to the remaining shape, all you see is a cube. Another thing. For T27, there is one possibility. But given the phrasing of the original question, does nothing count as a shape?
  14. Cubicle Stack #2

    A couple more revisions because I can't tell the difference between counting to 4 and counting to 6 at night. Thanks for checking all these. That's a lot of numbers!
  15. Cubicle Stack #2

    Full guess with numbered cubelets and revision to CEE.
  16. Buried Proverb

    Not sure if these are supposed to go together or be 6 separate things.
  17. Cubicle Stack #2

    New number for EEE. But I'm still getting the same result for CEE and CEM.
  18. Whodunit?

    I understand now. I interpreted it as making the triangle from the lines you get from trisecting. I didn't know you could connect the intersecting points. Thanks for clarifying.
  19. Cubicle Stack #2

    Only 13 this time.
  20. Cubicle Stack #2

  21. Cubicle Stack #2

    Recount. EEM and EEC intentionally left out. About CEX
  22. Cubicle Stack #2

    Lol. I'm not sure what my score is anymore. Can you score this?
  23. Cubicle Stack #2

    Nevermind the CEX numbers. I really need to find a cube I can hold...
  24. Cubicle Stack #2

    I see what you mean about CEX although I'm not sure how to show that with the numbering system. That throws a wrench in my counting. . .
  25. Cubicle Stack #2

    So 6/7 in the last post and check CEX?
