I don't know wheter to waste my last guess, and therefore get away for six hours, or to wait for some sort of inspiration and then have to wait six hours.

I'd try the last guess then get away for six hours of peace

I've been stuck on report what you see for nearly 24 hours now, only mangaged worried eyewitness with a lot of help from wdwfla and I feel stupid asking again on the next one .

I think I'm overthinking it, having tried a lot of things which I'm the first one to try.

In what way should I think american?
I have only a few tries left before I get frozen out for the second time.
Maybe I should just quit this since I have so much trouble with the beginning and find an easier puzzle to learn how to do them.

Don't give up! This one is a visual puzzle..look at the picture. There are two elements to it. Combine the elements to make another word.

Just spent most of the evening trying to figure out d2. The answer was so simple. I was way way over thinking it. That seems to be a trend for most of the puzzles there so far.

I know how you feel, wdw...I am stuck on C3...no matter how I look at it, I can't see how to approach it. I've tried the obvious, and am now up to the obscure...I've been locked out twice, which probably isn't a bad thing, 'cos it makes you get up from the screen, in sheer frustration!

Hehehe...'tis a terrific time waster!

Oh c3..that was an evil evil evil puzzle. Did I mention how evil it was? That was one that dead ended me. If you need any hints let me know.

I could do with a hint or two, I have ruled out morse and binary as it is too early into the puzzle.

I have counted the over stitches both across and down on single threads and double threads.

Very close....count the number of times brown goes over grey across...change the number to the equivalent letter. Switch to counting grey over brown for the down.

And make sure to Google your answer!

Thanks wdwfla, I had done half of that already and disregarded it as I went down first and all I could see were roman numerals. But I must be showing my age as I did not have to google to get the answer.

some pictures are right side up...so the names are as well *pay attention to the numbers over the pictures* as to what to use from the name.

the pictures that are upside down....turn the names around

let me know if you need more of a hint

Help ! I'm on D3. Hey, are we all progressing in the same order ? I've gone thru A1, B1, C1, C2, C3, D3. Is this one common order that everyone follows ? Anyway I've got the concept and I thought I had the answer but it tells me I'm wrong. Can anyone point out my error if you know what I'm talking about.

tnx, WorldB

You progress pretty much the same way. But if you give a variation of an answer, for example Bill instead of William, you might get a different puzzle.

D3...I printed this one out. Made it much easier to solve. Let me know if you need a more specific hint.

ASA,
How did you "explore in the other direction"? I have heard other people say that as well...where do you get the option?

The Stichem up has two possible answers, the obvious and the correct one, I went back and put the other answer in which allowed me to see some other puzzles, which leads to a dead end and then you have to retrace youer steps to the puzzle where you went wrong.

Anyway I am currently stuck on the gatekeeprer's riddle, I know what I have to do, just can't find the right words.

I'm in the same spot as ratbag. I have a lot of letters and they're not spelling out any kind of question like it's supposed to. Someone help!
