This is fairly straightforward and doesn't require too much creativity, but has a quirk at the very end that may hang people up for a bit. Below is are graded hints leading to the solution. It assumes you know keys 26 and 22. If you don't know them, don't continue.
Spoiler!
1) In this puzzle, you draw a figure on the large grid using the data below it, and then use the keyword phrase and the figure together to get the final answer - a single word (although there are two different answers that will work !)
Spoiler!
2) The upper left corner of the grid has a '1' over the first column, and an 'a' (no, its not a '2' even tho it looks like it) next to the first row. Go ahead and label columns 2 to 14 to the right of column 1, and label rows b to m below row a. You will have a grid of columns from 1 to 14 and rows from a to m.
Spoiler!
3) Beginning with 'd7', shade in the box at the intersection of column d and row 7. Do the same with the rest of the coordinates in the set. When you're done, you should have a well known image of a piece from the game of chess.
Spoiler!
4) Knowing where a rook begins the game on a chess board, look at the keyword phrase 'two pieces away'. What chess piece(s) begin the game two pieces away from the rook? Note that 'two pieces' means that there are 2 pieces that lie between the rook and the target piece you are discovering. American audiences will probably respond to the phrase 'three pieces away' better.
And the final answer is:
Spoiler!
5) 'king' or 'queen' depending on which rook you are imagining on the board. Either answer will work.
