  1. I can't tie it in with the number clues, but could it be the 1st 2 lines of stanzas 2-4 are prefixes of "GREEN" and possibly unrelated to lines 3 & 4? eg . stanza 3 could be METHYL green which is used to track DNA. Things seem to have come to a bit of a halt, so I'm suggesting it on the off-chance that it may set someone's thought process in the right direction.
  2. Nice going, Vist. The only reason I skipped over Lantern for #2 is that the GL oath is quoted at the start of the episode. There are a couple of things that confuse : "not be on this day" - there are "lantern day" celebrations in various parts of the world: and "ducks needn't be in a row" (sounds a bit like "arrow") Duck is also nickname/bingo name for "2" . I won't ask how you happen to know 23^5..... Aar, I think you're looking at #4
  3. Possibly 3rd stanza is Green Goblin - father of Spidey's best friend. and the 3rd line of the 4th stanza would seem to point to Green Hornet, though the other references elude me. (Has "bloke" made it into everyday Amerglish? Or is it indicating a British male. Or is it, in this case, poetic licence?) 3rd line of stanza 2 might point (!) to Green Arrow. Again the rest is a bit of a mystery to me. I wondered if the Queen reference might have something to do with the chessboard nature of the previous puzzle. But, generally, once a puzzle has been done, it doesn't seem to be referenced again. Deit....syntax and spelling
  4. Follow on from vista's work (spoilered to save space) and converted to 1-64 notation | Sq | Can move to | 1 | 33 | 5 | | 9 | 41 | 13 | | 17 | 25 | 9 | 18 | | 25 | 41 | 9 | 27 | | 33 | 57 | 9 | 36 | | 41 | 49 | 33 | 42 | | 49 | 25 | 52 | | 57 | 41 | 59 | | 2 | 10 | 3 | 1 | | 10 | 42 | 14 | | 18 | 26 | 10 | 19 | 17 | | 26 | 50 | 2 | 29 | | 34 | 50 | 18 | 36 | | 42 | 50 | 34 | 43 | 41 | | 50 | 34 | 52 | | 58 | 26 | 62 | | |3 | 11 | 4 | 2 | | 11 | 19 | 3 | 12 | 10 | | 19 | 35 | 3 | 21 | 17 | | 27 | 43 | 11 | 29 | 25 | | 35 | 51 | 19 | 37 | 33 | | 43 | 51 | 35 | 44 | 42 | | 51 | 59 | 43 | 52 | 50 | | 59 | 51 | 60 | 58 | | 4 | 12 | 5 | 3 | | 12 | 28 | 14 | 10 | | 20 | 36 | 4 | 22 | 18 | | 28 | 44 | 12 | 30 | 26 | | 36 | 44 | 28 | 37 | 35 | | 44 | 20 | 47 | 41 | | 52 | 36 | 54 | 50 | | 60 | 44 | 62 | 58 | | 5 | 37 | 1 | | 13 | 37 | 16 | 10 | | 21 | 29 | 13 | 22 | 20 | | 29 | 53 | 5 | 32 | 26 | | 37 | 61 | 13 | 40 | 34 | | 45 | 61 | 29 | 47 | 43 | | 53 | 37 | 55 | 51 | | 61 | 53 | 62 | 60 | | 6 | 14 | 7 | 5 | | 14 | 38 | 11 | | 22 | 38 | 6 | 24 | 20 | | 30 | 54 | 6 | 27 | | 38 | 54 | 22 | 40 | 36 | | 46 | 54 | 38 | 47 | 45 | | 54 | 38 | 56 | 52 | | 62 | 46 | 64 | 60 | | 7 | 39 | 3 | | 15 | 47 | 11 | | 23 | 31 | 15 | 24 | 22 | | 31 | 39 | 23 | 32 | 30 | | 39 | 55 | 23 | 37 | | 47 | 63 | 31 | 45 | | 55 | 31 | 52 | | 63 | 55 | 64 | 62 | | 8 | 24 | 6 | | 16 | 24 | 8 | 15 | | 24 | 32 | 16 | 23 | | 32 | 48 | 16 | 30 | | 40 | 56 | 24 | 38 | | 48 | 16 | 44 | | 56 | 64 | 48 | 55 | | 64 | 56 | 63 |
  5. I started to write a program, then realised there were 11139276598425944064000000000 possible combinations and my poor little Dell started smoking at the thought of it. Need to work out what Agatha Y-san means. Did we ever work out what the 1|2|3|4 multipliers in the H & K puzzles were for?
  6. I would think so. It makes a lot more sense than Nicely done DD
  7. @DD - If the last number of the sequence could be 21, 28, 42, does that also apply to the 1st one? If so, FUMA NATSURI could be NAMA NATSURI. But Y-San seemed quite happy with your sequence.... For those having fun with the above links, this is a Edit to correct my Japanese
  8. Well I got immersed in these: http://japanese.about.com/od/introductoryjapaneselesso/a/blank3.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_writing_system and a few others, and now my head hurts, so I'm resting for a while . Does FUMA NATSURU mean anything to anybody?
  9. Here's what I got (not much, I'm afraid). Stop giggling, MoMa: No spoilers (may as well make a fool of myself in the open). I was looking for a 6-letter shade of green that started and ended with the same letter. Discarded WILLOW because of the double LL. Tried LAUREL and actually thought I was onto something when I substituted 28,31,48,21,18,28 with line/letter from Green Lantern Oath and got H,L,Y,N,T,H. 3 of the letters - L,R,L are +3 in the alphabet, U is -3. but the other 2 just don't fit. I bet you all thought of that anyway. As for the paint brushes and the letters on the cartoons (I admit to knowing precisely 0 about GL so I had to Google): Kyle Rayner is an artist IRL. Could the H and K be initials of past or present names of GLC? And it seems the duo are mirror images of each other: it wouldn't take much imagination to mirror image K as Lambda (from Ep 1). Like I said, not much. But there if you hadn't already thought of it and it's of any use to you.
