1. ### Enigmatic Rebus

I'm really confused. Can someone explain how you're getting these answers?

2. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

Is it too late to join?

Not at all, everybody's welcome.

3. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

All I say is, let's get started.

4. ### Simple probability problem

1/3?

By simple counting, there are six ways the coins can be placed on the cards, because the coins are not differentiated. There is one way per color to choose two cards of that color, so two out of six possibilities satisfy the conditions, or 1 in 3.

5. ### Going Postal

According to the premise

between \$.01 - \$1.26 (inclusive)

it seems to be \$1.25

1 + 4 31s.

What I meant was that if you changed \$1.26 to something higher, what is the highest value for which there is still a solution with 5 stamps?

6. ### Water into wine and back

Are we assuming that the mixtures are perfectly mixed and that all samples of the mixtures will have the same percentage of each liquid as the entire glass?

if we transferred half the water, and then managed to transfer back pure wine by chance, both glasses would have an equal amount.

7. ### Going Postal

A possible extension: What is the highest maximum postal price for which this problem has a solution?

8. ### Newbie Mafia

I suppose I could be a backup, but if I play I'll need a mentor. OK?

9. ### Going Postal

So the question is to find the five stamp amounts that can make any whole number of cents between \$.01 and \$1.26 inclusive using a maximum of five stamps?

Clearly, we need a 1 cent stamp, but can we go straight to 6 from there? (5x1+1)

10. ### Games to Come (e.g. Mafia)

What does the red mean? Is it saying where the stuff is supposed to go, since it all got moved to one place when the site broke?

11. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

Where is everyone?

Rock.

Why? :help:

13. ### Gmail & gtalk

I'm confused.

14. ### Solving this puzzle will increase your self-esteem

Some help for you.

First Names (Likely Gender Male/Female)

Frank (M)

Sam (M small chance at F)

Shelli (F)

John (M)

James (M)

Pam (F)

Karen (F)

Susan (F)

Brian (M)

According to your solution, Sam has to be male (condition 3).

16. ### Can you deceive the witch?

Wouldn't the witch think the man was getting less than his fair share, not more?

17. ### How long will it take?

There is a pool of water that, when in full sunlight, increases in temperature by one degree Celsius in ten minutes.

At 12:00pm the pool is half covered by the shade of a tree. And by 13:00pm the pool is in full sun. (So that between 12 and 1 pm the pool is partially cover by some shade.) It can be assumed that the shade covers half the pool at 12:30 and so on.

Should this be "fully covered" instead of "half covered"?

18. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

When will you start the next thread?

19. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

When does the next thread start?

Edit: Does the fact we have unlocked the Banquet means that this thread is over?

Edit 2: Wait, no. With the Witch the thread is never over! (dramatic music)

20. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

So is she or isn't she the Sapphire Witch?

I see.

22. ### Hyperspace Racing

You think what? I'm a bit confused about the graph.

23. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

Wait... Molly Mae, how did you come to that conclusion?

24. ### The Witch's Epigraph Chapter 1: The Room of Six Locks

Does that

(I was in the process of posting when I accidentally lost my post! Given that I'd spent a while revising my plot document, it's getting late. I'll try again tomorrow, as it's getting late. Sorry about the delay!

The next chapter will not be so puzzle-dense, but will contain multiple duels and will, if you play well, solve a lot of the central mysteries of the game. The third chapter will be the final one.)

Are you counting the Prologue as a chapter?

25. ### Newbie Mafia
