Ahhh. Got #27. Judah and I were right to think

"telephone"

but the numbers there have some very particular meaning within that domain.
Incidentally:

You have to anagram your results, which is, pardon my saying, stupid. Why make the solver go through an extra random step? And considering that what you get before you anagram is a relatively sensible message suggesting either "47" or "472", depending on how specific you want to get, the fact that you have to anagram is even more irritating.

Okay, a few other people have already said this, but...I SERIOUSLY need help with level 11. I understand that it is in

roman numerals

but I even checked on google for those and the whole name doesn't translate into anything!

If someone could PLEASE post the answer to this part of the puzzle and why that is the answer, it would put my mind at rest. Thank you.

Okay, found the answer to 11. I'll post it here for all the people stuck, and I felt like an idiot when I figured it out after it taking me so long.

Level 11:

It's Roman Numerals again here. The only letters that are roman numerals in the name given to you are X, L, and I, in that order.
X=10
L=50
I=1
Simply adding them will get you nowhere; it's not how Roman Numerals work. If a smaller number is before a larger number in Roman Numerals, then the smaller is subtracted from the larger. So
XLI
becomes
10-50+1
which equals 41.

Let's hope I can get a few more before freaking out for help again.

26 is evil

As tempting as it might look, it has nothing to do with

roman numerals

But without the previous hints on this board, I never would have thought to combine

morse

with

vowels

RE: 27

I think it may have to do with...

phone country codes

but I haven't gotten it yet so I can't be sure.

I have the phrase for 27, but now I can't figure out what to do with it.
None of the obvious dates seem to be the code.
If you're thinking

phone

then you're on the right track
But it's important to think

globally

#26

You're right to think globally on the phone

but once you do...

You have to apply a previous rule to figure out what to do with your resulting ERLETTS

December 5, 2007 7:04 PM

ok Medison, for 11

look at the words and determine which letters are roman numerals and add them together

if you must have the answer,

27

Interpreting them all as country codes I get what looks like the name of a city, but entering the country code for its country isn't helpful either, nor does the article "the" make sense.

December 5, 2007 7:12 PM

i know that it is 7 weekdays 84 half the hours and 5040 minutes. Now what do i do??

Ok, I figured out 27, but as Lance says, there is a real red herring in there.

27:
Actually, the location name makes a lot of sense, particularly with the article. The famous photo of

Rabin/Arafat

is a traditional "Hello" gesture, after all. It really should have been the date of the accord or the photo.
The red herring would have been a perfect answer.
But now that I know I have to

anagram

I'm stumped. I get nothing. Even when I

Use ISO country codes rather than first letters
Perhaps I just suck at anagrams.

OK, folks, officially going gaga about 18. I can see that other people are stuck on this too, so can we please get a step by step spoiler on this one?

Here's what I have.

I know I have to concatenate the three answers. Heres what I have:
1st line: Week Days = 7
2nd Line: Half The Hours = 84
3rd Line: Minutes = 5040
So from what I read in the hints above, the answer should be 7845040. Which doesn't work.
Where have I gone wrong? Please be specific.

@master_flea for #18:

Why is "Half the Hours" =84? And why is "Minutes" = 5040?
Use the first line as the key to figuring out the #'s for these two, but not necessarily as directly related to some sort of equation for the other two numbers. Line one doesn't numerically impact the other lines....

I'd better give up before I hurt myself on 27
I'm in

anagram

hell!
Once I started seriously considering "Mona Lisa" as an answer to

"the one ohm smile"

, I realized I'd better quit.

I don't understand the thought process of 17

Master Flea:
For line 2 and 3, you're almost there, but you need to ask

how many X in a Y?

You're assuming the Y is from line 1.
Simplify.

compare to the natural container

hours are in a day, minutes are in an hour

:\ I am an idiot.

I can't get passed 15 :/

December 5, 2007 8:51 PM

Alright, so for 26:

I converted it to morse using the consonants as dots and the vowels as dashes, getting the resulting "words": vivalsi, rrote, fkur, and seasons. I tried taking the anagrams of them, but the first and third have no anagrams. How do I get numbers out of this? AHHH!

Help on #28?

ok, obviously applying the rule from problem #6 helps give me the key to re-interpret the line above into 8 two-digit numbers. I originally thought those might be lat/long numbers, but that doesn't really work.
Then I noticed that the numbers all go up in increments...
but that's as far as I've gotten...

Any thoughts out there?

Nobody: the thing you want on #27 is one word, seven letters. You may not have heard of it, but it's real. (And a proper name.) Look over some of those lists again.

#18

Use the clue one week, one day, one day

December 5, 2007 9:19 PM

So I am not even beginning to understand what to do on 19 if someone could clue me in please.

Regarding 28...

If you take out all of the 2's, as Giacomo said, I noticed that they're all prime numbers. However, there's three prime numbers missing from the list: 43, 59, and 73. I have no idea how to apply the 'WHERE' to all of that, though...

Any other ideas, people?

December 5, 2007 10:10 PM

Need serious help on 9!cereal!

27:

Y is a vowel...

#28 - to shingles & tonypa:

I think it has to do with those three missing primes - 43-59-73 -

but how to convert those into a "where"?

Are they supposed to be interpreted as lat/long?
minutes/seconds/degrees?

Are we on the right track?

on #28

there are 5 prime numbers 43, 59, 67, 73, 83

think of what numbers are being said or what objects in the text contains numbers.

if you just want the answer...

use the 2 as a number use the hand which resembles 5 and use the year Alexander the Great passed away which is 323... so now you should get the number 25323.

28:

there are more than 3 prime numbers missing

Regarding 28:

There is another missing prime number: 67.

Not very helpful but I'm also stuck there.

#28

...Oh whoops, can't believe I missed those other two. XD;
But, uh... Still lost on what to do after that.

#28 trying to hard

remember where are the 2's located

December 6, 2007 1:33 AM

For 28:

The WHERE - II is asking where are the twos

I understand

that is has to do with sudoku, which i am very good at, but I cannot figure out the order of the numbers, but there are so many possible answers for this one.

I have went through all the comments and still can't figure it out. Please someone help me out.

December 6, 2007 2:06 AM

I made it to lvl 29 and now I'm stuck. I think my brain left me around lvl something, I don't even remember now... someone please help me!

In 28:

The fact that numbers are primes may be irrelevant. Most important hint is Where

I'm stuck on #10. Any hints?

December 6, 2007 4:57 AM

i think the time spent trying to figure out 19 may have reached its limit.

i believe im on my way,
took out the letters BUMP out of the text,
FLIEEF
TOWER
SWA
FINDHISE

anagramed the left over letters
flee/feel if
wrote/re two
was
finished
i even tried combining if and re together to get a message that made sense. and still nothing

so if you have any hints, theyd be greatly appreciated

I am on the 30 now. Seems to be tricky !!

29:

It seems to be a variation of a pangram, but it lacks the letters i, p, and q, and I have no clue what the "Quote 10-14" means.

#30
So far

I think the second line is a morse code, but i don't know how to divide it.
The two last lines contain 63 letters + 1 point that is to say 64 signs. 64 = 8², and there are 8 mice.

#26: help!
I have the first step:

applying morse code using vowels and consonants as corresponding dashes and dots

what do I do with the decrypted four words?! I tried anagraming, but this leads to nowhere...

TmA:

you are on the right track but read again the WHOLE message

Tiri:

in 30

Read again the hint. What may mice do? Plus there is extra hint inside the word once you figured out first part.

Any help for 28?

So I remove the 2's (without understanding why), and I get eight 2-digit numbers, which don't give me a clue what to do next. Now what?

30:

The second line are instructions to guide the mice. Am I right?

December 6, 2007 6:31 AM

Shastings:

I'm just onto 26 as well, and I'm not sure how you got where you are, but Vivaldi Wrote (the) Four Seasons, if that helps.

fom:

thanks for the hint! I was messing around with IP addresses for a while until I finally realized...

ThemePark:

Ignore the "-" in the instructions.

30:

I tried to make a 8*8 maze with the last two lines. But I don't know how to use it with the second line (where is the starting point ?)

Sorry, but I'm still at a loss.

If I interpret them as latitude/longitude, I end up in Kyrgyzstan.
Apparently, the fact that they're prime numbers, is not important.
And they're in numerical order, but I don't know why.
Furthermore, some of them are not international calling codes.
So yeah, I'm stumped.

ThemePark:

Forget all about geography. Keep the 2 in the numbers. And the important words are "Where 2".

Partial Walkthrough Problems 1 - 6

1-30
Game Clue:

1+2+3+4

Hints:

You're Kidding, Right?

5-30
Game Clue:

THE HOLY GOAL IS EQUALITY.
SUBDIVIDE EVERY MONTH INTO TUESDAY.
XBOX IN STEROIDS

Hints:

Two previous solutions help here.

Obviously not 1-30

And not 2-30 either

Taking the first letter of each word, you get THGIESEMITXIS

Reverse that and you get SIX TIMES EIGHT. The answer is 48.

6-30
Game Clue:

GAIUS JULIUS CAESAR:
MY MEN VISIT IMMORTALS IN INDIA

Hints:

The clue has two parts

The logical split would be the new line

The first line implies something to do with a country

The second might hark back to a previous solution

Solution:

The first line implies a Roman connection

Such as Roman Numerals

The words of the second line all include Roman Numerals as their first letter. MMVIII = 2008

Anyone want to do the next 6? I've procrastinated enough tonight. ;-)
Also thankyou to those who posted help for 18. I'm up to 26 now, and leaving it till tomorrow.

BTW: Shastings:

Don't know if this helps, since I haven't finished that level yet, but I know that Vivaldi Wrote Four Seasons

30:

Things I've notices:
The 63 letter maze contains the alphabet in order except the letters q, x, and z
The second line seems to indicate 5 different/independent instructions
Both EIGHT and BLIND have 5 letters, and all those letters can be found in the maze
I tried starting at those letters and applying the instructions, but didn't get very far

December 6, 2007 7:40 AM

I did it! I finished!! I love this game! I want more!

I am stuck on 30

I've tried to make a maze but I still don't how to use it.
I've even try the Braille alphabet with the last two lines, but it doesn't work either

30.

I have what seems to be a well constructed, navigable maze. No idea where the mice would start, though. If there are 8 mice, why only 5 sets of instructions?

@fom:

Can you spell out #28? I'm completely stumped.

#28

Thx ThemePark for the hints but I'm still stuck on the level

I've tried to past all numbers containing 2, all numbers without 2, both 2 units numbers, Seems to be harder than I thought.

Any hints more? Pleeeeease :-)

#29

@fom,

28

This one is quite literal. Where is 2?

Re: 30

Have tried making mazes with the last two lines and navigating using the 2nd line. Letters I get do not make sense. Please give some hint as to how to construct maze. Thanks.

December 6, 2007 12:39 PM

on 29.. i think my brain has died as i cannot figure out for the life of me what it all means.. help!

December 6, 2007 1:25 PM

El Cuervo, for 19

first 4 lines are seperate words

fifth line tells you what to ignore

anagrams

line 1 proper

Thanks, Lance.

Obscure proper names in anagrams are evil should be outlawed :)

Despite all of these clues for #28, I'm still not getting anything.

I know it has a LOT to do with

Where is 2

but I've been trying interpretations of that for hours and none of my codes have worked. :(

#28

Still stuck on
latest hint from ThemePark doesn't help me :-(

I don't understand what must be done with this

where-II -> where is 2

another help please.. Thank a lot

Help on #29

#28

You are all asking saying you know to ask where is 2. Look at the puzzle and answer the question.

if you need more help than that...

and again and again and again and again and again and again.

hint

the first line give you the key

all is here

number of spaces in the text

solution? really?

oups

The Ultimate 28 spoiler:

It is much easier then it looks: the question is "where is number 2" in each of the numbers? There are 8 numbers and answers has 8 digits

Kathy, in 29:

The text itself has no meaning. Look what is there, and more importantly, what is missing.

And hints for 30:

To create the maze use number from hint.

In the maze start from the place which is not letter.

Hint on moving is also in mIce.

#28

I get it! Tx rbw
