Puzzle Solutions

[Post New]by Valdy on Sep 18, 14 12:42 AM
I hope we are allowed to make a thread for the puzzle solutions. Many of us struggle to get these right (or the devs got it wrong, so we can't get it right).

Please post any of the solutions you have for the puzzles. I don't know whether the puzzles for the PC and the apps are the same or different, but then again, quite a few gamers play this game on the app, so everything goes.

How many squares do you see?

Answer: 14


There are 9 squares inside a large square = 10. Plus, take 4x 4 squares from inside the large square = 14.

How many new Candles out of 9 Stumps: (3 stumps = 1 candle)

Answer: 4 candles

You can make 3 candles the first time with the original 9 stumps but after those melt into stumps...

*this was already answered elsewhere by someone but I thought I'd put it here

I'm not good with names either.

But, so far I've encountered two of these kind....

1. The cost of the Postcard ($110 total cost of 2 items, item 1 is $100 more than item 2. How much is item 2?)

2. The age of the Son (Total of ages is 26, mom is 20 years older than son. How old is son?)

Gut reaction made me want to say $10 & 6 years old! But, that would be incorrect.

It's always half of the difference.
Postcard: $110-$100 =$10, divided by 2 = $5
Son: 26-20 =6, divided by 2 = 3 yrs old.

The postcard is $5 & the boy is 3 years old.

If the boy were 6 then the mom would have to be 20. Then she isn't 20 years older. She's only 14 years older. So it can't be true. He is 3 & she is 23. 23 +3= 26 & she is 20 years older than her son. Same applies to the Postcard puzzle & any other puzzle of this kind. Hope that helps & doesn't further confuse. lol

What about the puzzle with the bike path, who is closer?? Wouldn't that depend on how far apart the two places were?
I figured it out. They were on skates not bikes (sorry) and of course when they meet they are the same distance from the monuments. DUHH. I think I am trying to over complicate these puzzles or I am reading them too fast.

Not sure I've encountered that one yet, toomuchsht.

But if it's like the hiking one, where there are 2 parties starting out from the same point going in opposite directions (one traveling faster than the other) & how far away from X point are they both when they meet?

Well....that one requires no math! They are of equal distance no matter which direction they are headed.

If that's not it then, sorry... if I find & solve that one, I'll check back. Maybe someone else will be able to help sooner.

I thought so too, but it doesn't really matter. Cause when they meet they're equally far from that point. A lot of the puzzles are tricky like that .

I finished the game, but didn't get to play all puzzles . If anyone figured out the 'count numbers' one, I would really appreciate the answer (it's not in the solutions). I skipped this one .

I posted this under a new heading, but will also add it here.

In the puzzle with 2, 3, 10, etc, even spelled out so you notice that the numbers start with a 't', the next answer is 21, but I had to click the 200 in order to get that.

I can't remember the name of the puzzle, but it's the one about distances between famous sites and the Ile de la Cit'e in Paris.

Starting with closest:

Chateau of Versailles
Statue of Liberty
Great Sphinx of Giza
The Great Wall of China
The Taj Mahal

I filled in:
Chateau of Versailles
Great Sphinx of Giza
The Statue of Liberty
The Taj mahal
The Great Wall of China
And the game told me 'right answer'.

I'm sure I put these in the order that I posted because I had to look some of them up and write them down. Maybe another quirk with the game.

Brendansoma's answer was the correct answer for me. Thanks.
