Question

MASTERMIND

This is a game I decided to make. It involves a situation where nine characters solve twelve puzzles created by an evil mastermind. This is a story about puzzles.

Rules: On Monday May 31, Puzzle one will be posted. This is a physical puzzle, and to solve it, you must control characters. If you suggest a command, I will choose the character that will make it the most interesting. The failure of a puzzle generally means that a character will die. The Monday after a puzzle is solved, the next puzzle will be posted, along with a piece of the story. When all twelve puzzles have been completed, the game ends.

These are the types of puzzles:

Timed: These puzzles must be completed within a certain time limit. Each post represents one minute. Usually, there is life threatening danger to one character and the others must save him/her.

Multi-layered: The puzzles are actually multiple puzzles stacked on one another. When one is solved, the next is revealed.

Evolving: The longer this puzzle takes, the more difficult it becomes. These can turn into other types of puzzles.

Elena Lee

Does anyone have a flashlight or cellphone or something to produce light? If so, have them turn it on to explore the room

Elena was trying to start a conversation, but everyone was panicking and no one paid attention. As it so happens, Olivia has a small pocket flashlight. It doesn't do much, but that, along with Albert's watch (which has a small LED light attached,) everyone can see each other. The room is completely bare except for a trapdoor on top through which they entered.

For the most part, there pockets are empty. Elena has a couple of pens, Olivia has the afore mentioned flashlight, Josh has a notebook and Richard has assorted office supplies including two pencils, paperclips, a thumb drive, and chap stick.

Albert Sighs. "I thought I was safe." He says. "The Mastermind is a ruthless criminal. He picks out candidates and forces them to compete in his deathly game. Last time, seven people died. Everyone is here for a reason. Mine is obvious. I suspect Richard, that you were chosen because you are a famous scientist. I'm unsure about anyone else."

Okay. Puzzle one.

PUZZLE 1:

The nine characters step into a large room. The light is too bright to see anything clearly. A voice says

“This is one of my favorite puzzles. I find that a larger group provides a more interesting situation. Don't stress yourselves.”

Upon closer inspection, the floor is revealed to be made up of hexagonal tiles. There are several pillars in the middle of the room. Some of the tiles have letters on them. Josh realizes that there must be some code hidden in the letters. Albert is skeptical. The voice starts again.

“I almost forgot to mention. The goal of this puzzle is to get behind that door on the other side of the room. But remember. If you step on the wrong tiles, a section of the ceiling falls on you. At the same time, a frame builds around you, thus trapping you. The body is then dumped into a pool of acid right underneath your feet. It is a most unpleasant death.”

Puzzle type: Multi-Layered:

You can only see three rows in front of you.

/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \

\O/ \U/ \O/ \N/ \_/

/ \E/ \R/ \T/ \I/ \

\N/ \ / \T/ \C/ \_/

Blank tiles are representing pillars. You might want to analyze the situation a bit. Or you could just run across.
