  2. Thinking of a Number

  3. ROLLO MKIII

    Why MKIII? Because Re-Re-Rollo was a little naff. Besides now it sound like one of iron mans suits Rules (unchanged from Aravers thread): 1. The host chooses a 5-letter word and starts the game by posting _ _ _ _ _ 2. Any player can guess a 5-letter word and post it (along with an attempt to logically explain the guess) 3. The host checks the guessed word and returns the number of letters in a correct position. The host gets +1 point per guess. 4A If the player attempted an explanation that was correct, he gets +5 points per explained letter (+10 points for the fifth and final letter) and the host shows the correct letters in the next post e.g. _ _ _ L _ 4B If the player attempted an explanation that was incorrect, the host gets +5 points per incorrect explanation. 5. Conditional explanations are welcome 6. The player that explained the last letter becomes the new host. _ _ _ _ _ All scores have been reset (gremlins got lose after midnight and chewed the power cables.... again)

    @planglazed would you like a spreadsheet or would you like to see me (almost on my own) guess your word in around 10 guesses or less(again)?

  7. Janis Puzzle

    Notes that may help someone * there are 12 different keys in the foreground * there are 16 cogs on the tree * there are 3 different colours for branches on the cog tree * there are 4 real cogs (with a number of sub-cogs) * there are 4 cog shadows * the bottom most shadow appears to be a shadow of the real cog next to it * the upper two shadow cogs mirror the lowest cog (folding the picture frame into quarters would allow them to overlap)

  15. The Adventure

    "Steve" asked me to follow him. Either he reasoned that it was expedient to go near the beast or meeting it was as much of a surprise to him as it was to me. I don't see the relevance of your question to the crime I am accused of, unless you have already acknowledged the shark presence and thus found me not guilty.

    My spreadsheet can figure it out in approx 5 more guesses. 10 bonus points if you can guess the word in 5 or less guesses

  19. Last night at Morty's - Alex's weird die

    There is only one answer when you take into account that certain numbers need to be opposite each other The way I worked it out was by observing that the dice has landed each time on a different axis, If it had been the same axis at least 2 of the sides (total - front & top) would have been the same value. I then did a brute force by assuming first that the third throws top and front was 1,5 and then 2,4. This would mean that the sides for the first two throws would both need to include either 1 or 5, or 2 or 4. also means that we can eliminate (1,15 and 5,11) or (2,14 and 4,12) from the third throw. From there it is reasonably easy to prove that the third throw cannot be (1,5) on the top & face. (2,4) on the top & face. is a little more tricky and I would suggest drawing a cube with possible values on each respective face. In the end I found that only Writersblock's answer existed. An interesting follow up question would be if Morty cheated by switching dice between 3 dice with the same numbers (2,4,5,7,8,11) but different configurations could he ensure that there would be no possible solution no matter which way the dice landed on each throw? NOTE I haven't personally figured this out yet

  21. ROLLO MKIII

    PS: TARES is a good word to start with (Or I could be leading you astray)
  22. ROLLO MKIII

    Then it must be UNION That or ANION After this round as host I am going to have to retire from ROLLO. I have developed a spreadsheet you see which tells me the remaining words that are allowable and the letter/letters that will be most likely for the next word. Given this obvious advantage I cannot in good conscience continue.

    If PUSHY is 0 try ONION if ONION is 1 go for RHINO
