dancemonkeyriddle.gifLateral thinking is not something I have always excelled at. Some would even say you could remove "lateral" from the previous sentence and it would remain just as true. I have noticed in fact a general decline in my reasoning prowess, and I'm choosing to blame the lack of sleep as a result of having a baby... 14 months ago.

To fight my general stupidification I've been flexing my lateral thinking muscles lately with Riddles of Riddles 100. These lateral thinking web games are the work of one apparently psychotic mind, Mark Lautman. They aren't as slick or polished as God Tower or Dumb: The Game, but what they lack in graphics they make up for in deviousness and variety. In the first 16 puzzles alone, I came across binary code, a crossword puzzle, a word scramble, and a quote from... nevermind, that would give the answer away.

When you discover the answer to a puzzle you enter it directly in the URL in your browser's address bar. I was originally a little annoyed at that, but the manual entry actually sets Mark up to hand you some pretty clever wordplay based on the address bar itself. There are also occasional hints in the source code of the document itself.

Shoot, I hope that didn't spoil anything. It's so hard reviewing these kinds of games without giving too much away.

In any event, if you like feeling stupid for not finding the answer that's right in front of your nose, get ready to enjoy.

Still don't get #4! Do I need to use anything special on the pic, e.g. "paint"? :/

Reply

Uhm, it might be handy to have a pop-up with an address bar, seeing as you have to enter the answer manually.

Reply

I'm on 13... and i can't figure out how to get past it!!! :/ i need a hinttt.

Reply

Actually, i've got an idea.. let's see if it works

apparently, the idea worked (=

Reply

we kinda need the addres bar to put the answers in!

Reply

Sorry about the lack of an address bar. The links above have been fixed if you reload the page.

Reply

Hmmm, I personally get tired of that Source_Coude + Browserbar games. Yes that idea was originally once.

But what keeps people from making normal riddle pages, where I can put the answer somewhere in the field, an do not have to edit the URL all the time? Oh and give all necessary hints directly to the page. Whats that good for, you have to switch to view the sourcecode?

About cheating: Just make the page javascriptwise translate the answer into some hash string, send it the server (yes maybe as url), and it will tell if the answer is correct..

Reply

Can anyone give me a hint on how to enter number 14. I think I know what is wrong, but I don't know what it's called or how to enter it.

help a brother out with 4. other than the

apostrophe in the wrong location in "I'ts" instead of "It's"

I can't see any clue to help solve this...

well its fun...
I do stuff like this at school at the time so I guess it gets easier as you go along...stuck on 4 for now :(

Reply

I'm absolutely clueless on #8.. Is it some sort of a riddle? How is it connected with music?

Reply

please help! i'm stuck at no. 6

I consider myself a puzzle freak, yet these kind of browser-puzzle whatevers simply don't do that for me.

What was fresh once, now seems like lazy puzzle design.
Instead of giving a clever self-contained puzzle, you create a below-average one and then hide the hint/solution in the source code or in an alpha layer of the image. Whoever thught of it first, kudos to you, but how about creating something new for a change?

Reply

how do you play?

Reply

gopedder,

you don't really need to read most of the text.. just "don't cut the corners"... and don't try to fit a circle in the square, which I did and wasted my time on - just don't cut the corners, that's all (=

Reply

gopedder:

on number 4,

pay attention to the title.
"Don't cut CORNERS!"

...or just spell a new word with them

Reply

cant get past 6...help plz

help guys!!! this is my first time posting. how do you do number 9!!! i dont understand at all. any help would be nice.

please help i'm stuck in #9

#3 :

use another word that follows the same pattern

#4

use only the corners to get to the answer

Reply

for #3

look closely at the image.

I'm stuck on seven. XD

Reply

oh, I forgot, for 6,

add letters, not numbers. ^^ Think about it, it's not too hard.

Reply

Could I get a little help with # 81 please? The answer is very obvious. Format is proving difficult. Is it in Roman numerals?

Pia, on #13, check the source code.

Pastoristia, #6 is very alphanumeric. :)

Rinspy, on #8, certain words should "stick out" in the text.

Mike D., Nice name!, I really didn't like 9. Nothing point to an anagram, but it is.

Keep chuggin'!

Reply

this seems kind of unfair with number 9.

the creator's forums hint heavily at the solution being an anagram of the letters on the page, if that is the case, there are about 1,145 possible answers!!

Reply

for number 6 im tryin to put thirty eight but its not working

Reply

Ttt-
most anagram solvers have an option to limit the result to one word, which uses all of the letters =)

AleX-
You need to change those numbers back into letters

Reply

wow! theres so many anagram combinations for 9!! argh!!!!!

Reply

please help with number 8!! THE FORUM IS TALKING ABOUT NUMBERS.. I don't see any numbers!!!

Reply

nevermind guys got it!

Reply

thirty eight theses are letters??

Reply

Um... Ok, so I got past 13 awhile ago, but now I'm stuck on #15, 23 across. :/

Reply

I wish someone would help me with #8

Reply

Mala, make sure you are in the right forum. Riddles 100.

#9
Mike.d, love that name!, and ttt, the answer is only one word and there is only one word you can get from all of the letter.

Reply

Thanks Micheal, you are right I was totally on the wrong forum! Still no dice...

Reply

Oh my goodness.. I feel sheepish now. just managed #8.. that should have come to me a lot sooner.

Reply

I'm still stuck on #15, 23 across! I can't figure it out. I think it starts w/ an 'H', but is that even right?

Lone Trombone December 26, 2006 11:07 PM

Is it possible to win the tic-tac-toe, I've been playing it for ten minutes! Or do you even have to win it?

Reply

can anyone help me with #7?

Reply

Well, for the tic-tac-toe, you dont HAVE to win... just read the source code! (not the bottom where hints are, the entire thing!)

I am REALLY stuck on number 8 and could use a REALLY BIG hint please!

Reply

ok for tic-tac-toe here's an unmbeatable trick frist click on top right than lower left than lower right than middle of the left column

Reply

For those needing help on #8, these words are the clues:

  • beautiful day

  • staring at the sun

  • last night on earth

  • stuck in a moment you can't get out of

  • walking on

  • I still haven't found what I'm looking for

  • mysterious ways

  • with or without you

  • lemons

  • discotheque

  • where the streets have no name

  • Wild Honey

  • the sweetest thing

  • kite

  • New York

  • peace on Earth

  • in a little while

  • Give up?

  • They are all songs by U2. try using that for the url.

Reply

For #8 try googling parts of the writing and see what comes up. This worked for me

Reply

currently stuck on #15 and have no idea what to do

Reply

#7?? Anyone???

Reply

If you're stuck on #9, here's how to do it:

Search Andy's Anagram Solver on Google. Then go and type in the letters you see on the table going ACROSS (i.e. real..). Leave the settings as they are, and you'll get the answer!

Reply

I am still stuck on #10. I know it must be something so obvious that i'm just not thinking of. Help?

Reply

Hey Pia, on #15, try reading the answers allowed. It will help with the answer.

And for a little bit of a spoiler, here are two of the answers.

dot htm

Also, remember that #15 goes in two directions. I sat on this question for a while just because I was set on one direction.

Kehau, on #7, you have to do something similar to #6. Convert, math, convert back.

Reply

I'm stuck on #10. I tried to google it, but there are no relevant hits

Reply

#10 is apparently a quote? But I'll be danged if I can find it. Any ideas?

Reply

anyone help on the #2? i know i am stupid =(

Reply

#7:

Do the opposite conversion that you had to do for #6.

Don't forget to switch back to letters when you have your answer

Can anyone offer help for #12? I have

converted the binary to base ten and gotten orange=109, pink=97, blue=112, red=108, and green=101,

but this isn't helping me solve the puzzle.

Reply

Please, can someone tell me what number 6 is? I have been stuck on it for 20 minutes. I just don't get how to convert numbers to letters!

Reply

i cant get #6. i know that its suppost to be alphanumeric, but i dont know how to change the numbers into the alphanumeric characters. please help!

Reply

I've been on #10 for hours."your leaving the man and entering the women" doesn't make any sense to me : (

Reply

Can you please help me! I've been up all night on this one...#37

I have tried entering all the words that mean "extra" or "superfluous".. I've tried almst every word in the thesaurus.

Please please help!

Reply

im so confused by number 15... the ides of march. ive found where the play the speech comes from but none of my answers seem to work!! help me!!!

Reply

Wow, #48 is making me angry. Anyone have any luck with it?

Reply

Here's what I have

6

a=1, b=2, c=3, etc..., add just means "put the two together."

12

Keep each group separate when translating.

10, this was a toughie

check out the URL, anything in there similar to anything in that quote?

15

you're on the right track, it's not the first two people you'd think of.

Reply

I'm stuck on 22 now (thank you 21 for being so literal)

I have

adulteraton from the capital letters but nothing decent shows up on an anagram search. ADULT ORNATE? ANAL TUTORED? Surely not.

Reply

I made it to #39.. can someone help?

I have put in the names of the sports but its not working.

I have even looked at combined sports events in the olympics

Michael if you could spare a second could you give me a nudge?

Reply

Xadrian....

maybe you already have the answer and you don't need to find an anagram ! (wink) Give it a try...

Reply

Can someone please give me the answer for number 6, the one with the "addition problem"?

Reply

Hmm. Still confused on #12.

I'm not sure what the "groups" are other than they bytes or perhaps I don't know what to do with them,

Reply

#6:

Use a simple code to convert the numbers to letters.

Double digits just mean that the letters are further along in the alphabet.

When you have the letters, just place one after the other.

Reply

Erika,

On #12, the numbers are binary. You have to convert them so that you can convert them again to letters.

Reply

Micheal could you please help with #39? I AM AT MY WITS END....

Reply

mala on 39

those sports all belong to different groups of events as well, count how many sports there are, what's close to that?

Reply

My problem is that the converted numbers are much too high to be letters.

Reply

Xadrian.. thanks A LOT for the hint, but I'm still lost..

when you say different groups do you mean track and field? or like running, throwing and jumping?

or do you mean 9 different events? I have tried typing each one and even googled to look up sports that are in the olympics...

please help !

Reply

Erika

are you converting each group of binary correctly.. a wrongly placed 0 or 1 could totally throw you off. I used a text to binary converter straight off instead of converting them to numbers and then to letters ...

Reply

Mala,

... this time with Type Key.

In the Olympics there is an event in which all but one of the occur. The other is your answer.

When there are 10 events, it is called a deca...

Reply

Xadrian and Michael... thank you so much!

I had tried typing the "answer" earlier but I must have spelt it wrong....

whew..on to #40....!

You know I have never felt the need to post on jayisgames or gotten this into a browser-riddle...big step!

Reply

I'm on 48 now.

Obviously got the 4 letter word, but the 5 letter? Is it translating from that word or to that word? And what languages?

And the connector you can find by googling that exact phrase, it's actually in the dictionary.

Reply

It's just been several years since my CS classes. I forgot how to convert to letters. Thanks for all the help!

Reply

Man, for 48

Make sure you find a good spanish dictionary that has more than one translation.

Reply

Is it just me or with a few of these, do you get a mangled word that's close enough to an actual word that you just guess and it happens to be right?

No spoiler per say, but for instance you use whatever means to gather some letters and they spell AIRPOXT so you guess AIRPORT and it's right, but you're pretty sure that X was right.

Anyone?

Reply

I know what you mean xadrian. I did that with a couple of them.

Anyone who wants to help with #81, it is appreciated. Locating the line is easy enough. Can't figure out the format for the answer though. Roman numerals?

Reply

Can't help ya, I'm stuck on 54 with apparently an easy one toying with my lack of knowledge of spelling or global culture, or both.

Reply

Thanks xadrian. Follow the directions literally. This one has a trick to it. When you catch the trick, the rest is easy enough.

Reply

Yeah I got it. I was thinking...

...it all had to do with them all being Republics or something, but Japan kept throwing it off.

Reply

i'm having trouble with #45. an undecided win. i've looked at the source for all 3 pages and still have idea what to type in. i think i know who the 'winner' is, but i've tried all combinations and cannot come up with the right answer. any hints?

Reply

It is a tricky one Stacey. How can both win? The source code has the answers. :)

Reply

I would like a hint on #20(do as your told).
I did find the hidden message but am having a hard time solving the riddle.

...and Jay no need to confirm my last post since this is basically a repeat, but now i am registered :]

Reply

#20

It's a classic word puzzle. Even google should have a link to it.

The numbers are important, still.

Analogous to decreasing from "a few" to "three."

Could use some help on 83. I got a big number but not sure what to do with it, other than the obvious which doesn't yield anything.

Reply

Didn't you finish this one confuzzled or is that just a common puzzle solving name?

Reply

I don't even know how to start...: (

Reply

Ash,

You need to use one of the "things you should know" to get to the riddles.

Try number 2

Reply

I cant get 12

Reply

someone, PLEASE help me out on 14. i THINK i know whats wrong, but how do i enter that in the url? ive been looking at this for hours now and its just not popping up for me!!

Reply

Jenn,

You are probably looking at the right part of the image, but you need to apply a puzzle-solving technique you've used already to get here.

#14:

You're looking at the serial number, right?

Can you see any groupings within it?

Reply

i feel dumb. i got what i think is the answer for number 14 but every time i put it in it goes to the stop sign page. any help?

Reply

On #12, convert the binary to decimal and then to letters.

mike.d, you should probably spell check your answer. You are likely on the right track.

Reply

For puzzle 8
Don't use capital letters
For puzzle 10

Change the word "man" in the URL rather than the answer to 9

Reply
Bob Jones May 17, 2008 2:50 AM

It's probably obvious, but what's 7?

Reply

Ergh. Level 6 is still driving me insane. I know it's almost definitely incredibly simple, but...

I've added the numbers together and converted the result into a letter (subtracting 26 first), but it doesn't work. I've converted the numbers into letters FIRST (to get M + X) but MX doesn't work. Of course, M and X are Roman numerals, so M + X = 1010, which doesn't work. 1010, if converted into a letter, yields V, which doesn't work, and 10 (since V is also a Roman numeral) doesn't work, nor does the letter result of 10. 1010 is also binary for 10, but as I said, 10 doesn't work nor does its corresponding letter.
Ay-yi-yi-YI.

Reply

Oh WOW I am dumb.

I don't know by ABC's. WYXZ? No...I don't think so. Still laughing at myself.

Reply

For 35:

All the letters stand for a certain attribute of one of the Hogwarts Houses. For example, the red block is Gryffindor, and the attributes are boldness, daring, bravery, and courage. The green block is for Slytherin.

Want me to spell out the answer?

That was the worst one, I think...

There should be one most common translation of "sobre." Spanish, right? There's a movie with that word in the title... "Upon" is NOT the right word...
5,280 feet can only be one thing... Starts with 'm' Ends with 'e'
The "connective to join word elements" can be googled to figure out.

it's a vowel...

the ten letters are then rearranged. anagram server on wordsmith.org is a very good one to use
