Question

Posted · Report post

SOUTH CENTRAL PARK | LAST BUT NOT LEAST

Battle like children!

Network -vs- Laptop

School -vs- Diploma

Turkey -vs- Panda

Quirky -vs- Indistinct

Rook -vs- Pawn

Dork -vs- Platypi

Planet -vs- Cosmic

Science -vs- Pagan

The answer is a two word phrase.

This puzzle is an original by me. It is not straight math or logic, but follows the flavor of The Master Theorem or MIT puzzle hunts. It was originally published on my website here. If you like it, please see my current kickstarter campaign.

Good luck!

I assume to figure this out we need to find how the words relate?

For example:

Network-vs-Laptop could be Group Vs Stand alone

Nope. Look for something that makes this list of words unique.

Probably at least another day.

I know what the two word phrase is, but I am uncertain what method is used to choose which word in each "battle" is used.

I'm sorry but I can't wait!

Despite being a list of coupled words, there are three unique sets of words being used.

I hope I didn't just make it too easy!

Thank you so much to whoever from BrainDen backed my oh! mega-puzzle book! (see links in puzzle for details). I don't know who, but I thank you.

There are only five "Early Backer" books left for the discount price of $13 (which includes shipping).

Perhaps I should play nice like Molly Mae does.

Yes, but why? ;)

How can you abbreviate the (first half of the) title, and why are the resulting six letter important?

I just haven't figured out the how of it.

EDIT: Nevermind. I'm fairly certain I got it.

I noticed the letters PA occur together quite a bit (including in the title). As soon as the title hint was pointed out, I got SC (and then RK is pretty obvious after that). After that, it's just a game of RK, PA, SC. LZ and SP have to stay home sick today. Take the last letter of each winner to get the secret phrase.

Nice puzzle. It really had me stumped.

Awesome! Good work. (Though the puzzle is flawed if you got the answer before the logic.)

I wouldn't say it was flawed. Dorothy could see Oz from a realm off...but getting there was the puzzle.
