Puzzle

Post by tizereyes »

Not even slightly paddling related, but a good way to waste time if you like a good bit of mind bending (advise not to start this at work!)

I'm up to level 9 and have sadly looked at the forum 3 times for clues - no staying power!

I got straight to Level 4 before I realised that my will to live was fading fast.


In order to twist this to paddling, I'll add this link...

I clearly don't have the right mind-set. I found the rules, where it says "if you're ready to play, go ahead"... How? There's a link to the forum, but it doesn't say how to start the game. If I have to read forum posts... forget it.

That flipping puzzle effectively stole my wife from me last night. She got to Level 20.

I'll stick with canoeing jigsaw puzzles myself.

Mary, check the bold lettering for clues...
Sometimes the answers are just waiting in the dark

The page of rules is the first level of the puzzle ;-)
You have to look in the dark to find the answer!
Keep an eye on the heading tabs of the page cos it sometimes gives another clue.

I entered 'inthedark.html' which didn't work. Then tried to find black text in the black background (I couldn't find any). Then I gave up and went to the pub.

Should Britain be worried?

Damn you tizereyes, this puzzle has taken over my whole day! It's made extra difficult by the fact that I keep getting interupted and need to pretend to work whenever someone comes over to my desk. I have made it to level 28 though...

Apparently when you reach Level 30, it emails an automated congratulation to your employer's HR Department.

Oh dear, I dont think I did any work today at all. Oh well, I did get to 30 (small consolation).

oh dear...I can see much time is going to be wasted by browsers of UKRGB on these. I know I'll get sucked in even though I don't want to.

Hope you get your wife back soon Mark!

I hate the puzzle game, got to the third page and gave up!
The jigsaw however, will provide me with hours of fun!

I got so enthralled by this that I ended up spending the entire evening (until the early hours) getting frustrated by this puzzle. I am addicted to it though, and am most likely to spend the majority of tonight getting frustrated by it again!

It stole most of my afternoon away from my employers, but I made it to Batch 2 (Level 30) then decided I should do some work.It's going to be hard to stay away today!
