Finished the book however I am not sure how I solved #22 by using the clue pages the way intended and would to love to know the correct way. I have ...
Spoiler!
looked and both hints but couldn’t figure any correlation soI just matches up the cutouts till I got a number , but don’t know how it relates to 161245. I do see the word it also reveals too.
. So any info would be great.

Also I have the kindle version and the print for #20 opens the small image of 20 but when you click on it to print it opens 22. I finally tricked it to print the small image large.... but it should be fixed

The numerals can be converted to a date. What day of the week does that date fall on?

If you spell out the day of the week it orders the 'cards' but only 6 are in play.

Even with the heavy hints the solution eludes me.

Thank you!!!! Always forget to check how others use date order (I am in America) . It gets me stumped almost always. Maybe, just maybe, this will cement it in my memory to check for this.

Tell me about it. I have frequently entered wrong address during 'solve' due to fact in UK we spell center as centre.
My pleasure; so did you solve 16 (as in OP) and can you pay me back with hint?
