Thanks for the final assist CMcB ... I think I just needed some time off before coming back around to it. And maybe by next Christmas M will have a third book out!

I'm assuming based off your description that you solved the shifting letter grid and are on the second one made of letters and other symbols?

For the second grid, the goal is pretty similar to the first - make a phrase by clicking letters. As a second hint, each "pseudo-Greek pictograph" stands for a unique letter.

Re: 5OLV3R part 2

Don't know what to try next ... here's what I have:

A series of 27 pseudo-greek pictographs and a picture of a lock that seems to ask for three numbers (I'm assuming an input box will pop if I do the right things on the second "letter" grid)

Any clues appreciated!

I think you’re overthinking it see if you can figure out which agent the original email you got is talking about.

I've said it once (I think) and I'll say it again: H4XOR. I've gotten into the NSA terminal and the coordinates from the "locate bad guys" program roughly translate to easter island, spare a couple hundred miles, but that's all I've got. Any confirmation that I'm on the right track, or am I looking in the wrong place as per usual?

Ah, ok, I guess I misunderstood. To refer back to your last question, no translation is necessary. Some of the symbols may translate to letters, but it's much easier to read them as is (as if they were English letters)

Thanks for writing this, however I had figured all of that out for myself, could you help me figure out what to do with all this information?

I assume you mean the circles on the "Calculating..." page? If so and you haven't figured out which of these circles represents exactly which symbols, you need to do so by colliding the particles.

Figuring this part out really just involves trial and error by colliding random particles together (regardless of their position) in order to deduce which lowercase particles each initial one produces.

For a bigger hint, each initial particle produces the same 3-6 (don't hold me to this exact number) smaller particles each time it is collided with another one, and the aftermath of a collision is the combined fragments of each initial particle

Question about 4C13N71S7, I have worked out that each of the circles represent one of the symbols. I have tried translating to English similarities, looking for images to copy and paste off the internet (couldn't find the m symbol) and colliding the particles in the same columns, could I have a small hint for this point of the puzzle?

On April 13, 2022 at 7:38PM EST CranjisMcBasketball responded to Rubik’s:

In N4V19470R, each symbol on the first page has both a number and directionality somehow associated with it.


For 4C13N71S7, you want to figure out which of those lowercase "secondary particles" come from which "primary particles" that you initially collide.

I think it was from the left side (front) of the deck. So look at the leftmost 2 cards and for each black card index into the deck from the left by the amount on the card. For each red card then move the other way. So if it was a 5 of spades and 3 of diamonds for example, you would index right into the deck by 5 then move left 3, so you’d land on the 2nd card from the left.

On March 25, 2022 at 8:05PM EST FlipFlopd1 responded to EMC2:

ok so by the first two cards in the deck do you mean from the left or the right because that could mean either and I'm very confused

On January 24, 2022 at 9:45PM EST EMC2 responded to CranjisMcBasketball:

yeah this one took me forever! here's my best hint for that one:


the first two cards in the deck fully determine the chosen card

black from front, red from back

Update: I finished this section, but if anyone can fully solve 50LV3R and give a full explanation for the second round, I would appreciate it. It feels to me like I sort of guessed/stumbled on the answer rather than truly solving it.

Look just at the card(s) directly next to the chosen card and see if anything is consistent between rounds.

On January 27, 2022 at 8:32PM EST FlipFlopd1 responded to CranjisMcBasketball:

No big surprise here, but I'm an idiot. Can I have a less vague hint? I wasn't looking at the whole deck anyway, and I tried everything to do with being close to the chosen card. Help again, please?

On January 26, 2022 at 7:15AM EST CranjisMcBasketball responded to FlipFlopd1:

You don't need to look at the whole deck. The answer lies pretty close to the chosen card.

Hey, uh... speaking of M491C14N, can I have a clue for the second part of it? I've got some ideas but they've been pretty baseless. My best idea was add the top and bottom cards and multiply by the second-top card, and then choose a card that isn't the suit of any of those three but it works about half the time.
