1. ## 12 chess pieces

Thought that wording was a bit repetitive. . .

3. ## 12 chess pieces

Is Ed's interpretation of 8 correct?

5. ## 12 chess pieces

That's quite possible, but from my interpretation, without any mention of the same row, the end refers to the whole side of the board. I will try it that way though!
6. ## 12 chess pieces

Ok. Can you tell me which of the clues my answer violates?
7. ## 12 chess pieces

Seems like there could be multiple answers from my interpretation of the clues.

15. ## shuffling algorithm for letters in a word

It looks like you're taking the first letter and essentially rotating it through the different positions while the other letters remain in the same order.

For example, I don't think you can get a sequence starting with AC. So this does not seem to hold up.
16. ## Alhambra palace

This seems like a trick somehow but I'm going to go with...
17. ## Christmas Card

Unless the sender said something, it might just be random letters to make the ornament shape.
