As I mentioned the other day, Debs and Errol said they had something special for us to help celebrate 1000 comics and the end of the depression arc. That something special is a puzzle hunt.
Let me tell you, it’s damn challenging. Seriously. Consider yourself warned. I don’t think I have ever been this challenged doing puzzles. Errol has quite the brain in him. Some may argue, he’s using his brain for evil, and not good, in the construction of this hunt.
But, if you are anything like me, challenges are fun. Especially when there are things you have to solve.
Also, if you are anything like me, you probably won’t be able to concentrate on anything else until you have SOLVED ALL THE PUZZLES! For the last two days, work has been ignored because the puzzles were consuming my every thought. I even had to learn all about Boolean. They aren’t just an alien race who took advantage of the Bajoran wormhole and the Maquis stole some of their freighters. I knew I married a developer for a reason.
But, I successfully completed them today, so back to the real world I come. Consider yourself warned, again.
Errol has been encouraging people to help each other. So, I will be more than happy to help in the comments by giving some hints, if you specifically ask for them. I also have a couple of hints below:
- Important! Keep a running list of all your passwords as you solve the puzzles. If you close the tab, you’ll need to re-enter the password.
- For puzzle #2, this image I created may help you on your way. Remember: All rules of the game apply, so the image is not done.
- For puzzle #5, if you are using GIMP, make sure your threshold is down all the way to 1.0.
- For puzzle #6, you may need this image if you are not in the Eastern timezone, because Facebook is timezone specific. You will definitely need it if you don’t use Facebook.
- For puzzle #7, use an image that is in this post, not the one on the Debs and Errol website. The one here is bigger and easier to see. It’ll make sense if you make it that far.
- For puzzle #10, if it was a board game, your piece would begin on the green dot, not the first square.
- For puzzle #13, you’ll need to solve for x. No online solver will help you on this one. Time to break out the paper and pencil, or text editor, and use your brains.
Go, now! And have fun while secretly trying to plot ways to kill Errol.
PS: The prize for finishing is awesome.
