Post by sirsqrl » Wed Nov 11, 2020 5:04 pm

I am stuck on puzzle 16. I have oalnn or tusk neither is solution. Is shadows a hint? Book hint and extra hints did not help.

I'm also stuck on this one too now. Also...
Spoiler!
Is there a typo in the puzzle? Should 215 actually be 225 if points of a compass?

Solved it. There are two errors - one in the puzzle and one in the extra hint:
Spoiler!
a) 215 should be 225 as it is a point of the compass. b) North is actually where N on the picture is, not the hidden N behind the table that the online hint page suggests

Solved once the error corrected. North is NOT under the table.

Just contacted the author and he is correcting the extra hints. 215 is the letter bearing not the compass point attempting to make it less obvious.

i've used deduction on the 215 matter , left that one open till the end and guessed it.
Spoiler!
the 10 degrees difference i took for granted.
