Re: What are you playing now?

Thanks!

Puzzle solved. There was a blatant error in it that peeved me off so that I decided to forego on the last riddle.

Re: What are you playing now?

Well, I've flagged him, so as soon as Collector gets here he'll throw him out. I get these all the time at TAOM, twice to three times a day, it's really annoying. Never-ending battle. I'm doing an "Escape Puzzle" jigsaw at the moment. First you solve a jigsaw, then you solve the riddles in the jigsa...

Re: What's On Your Mind? (Silly or Serious!)

Unfortunately my home town made international news after riots broke out yesterday. Seeing the violence and destruction in the ugly but friendly place where I was born, grew up and met my boyfriend has been making me angry, scared, upset and nauseous.

Re: 2021 Goals / Resolutions / Whatever You Want To Call Them.

Partly inspired by Lucas, I decided to finally conquer my arachnophobia this year. I never was too fond of any of my phobias but my arachnophobia is something I worked on before - it had gotten somewhat better in that I stopped my daily spider hunt, but it had gotten worse when a daddy-longlegs spid...

I have finally solved that question - and it's utterly brilliant. Wow. I'm in a mix of awe and in a hallelujah mood.

Re: What's On Your Mind? (Silly or Serious!)

Yeah I have that issue every time I play it - sometimes there are 3 or 4 possible moves for something and it can take more than a few moves before you noticed. In move 7 I move the bishop to F5, that's the piece that goes to g6 later. Because it's a poor game and because it can't be found online it'...

Re: What's On Your Mind? (Silly or Serious!)

How about question 21 then? IIRC you play chess... Question 21a is "fill in the letters B, N, R, Q, K at the question marks". The last move is Qd4++ Question 21b is "who plays black in this party?" At the start I decided to skip question a, since this was such an unusual game I thought I'd be able t...

Darker than Christmas - but your post reminded me of "difficult puzzles" - FBI Claims the Zodiac killer's code was recently deciphered fully. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/11/us/zodiac-killer-code-broken.html But back to a lighter note, where's this NBV Christmas thing? https://www.aivd.nl/actuee...

Re: What's On Your Mind? (Silly or Serious!)

I'm pummeling everybody I know to take a look at the nefarous NVB Christmas Puzzle.

NBV is the encrypting branch of the AIVD, the Dutch CIA. Their Christmas puzzle is little short of torture - famously hard.
