So their is a wrong clue in each puzzle?
Should we even tryout this ?!
I do not understand at all...
for Automatic translation users
I just wanted to have some fun little puzzles, but it appears someone has muddled with my games. At least they only changed on clue from each, the rest should be fine.
1. Alice is level 7.
2. The level 7 agent was squad Foot-E.
3. The agent in squad Foot-E started playing in 2016.
4. Alice started playing in 2018.
5. The level 16 agent has a founders badge.
6. Bob has a gold innovator badge.
7. David started playing before Eve, who started playing before Claire.
8. The agent who started playing in 2014 was on squad Bike-1.
9. The agent who started playing in 2015 is the recursed level 12 agent.
10. The agent in squad Bike-3 was level 9.
11. Claire started playing 2016.
12. The two agents who were on bikes were the agent who started in 2016 and the level 13 agent.
13. The level 16 agent was in squad Foot-A.
14. The agent who started in 2015 was in squad Foot-R.
15. Bob was on a bike.
16. The agent who started playing in 2013 was squad Foot-A.
What squads were Alice, Bob, Claire, David and Eve in?
Are negative numbers allowed in the middle puzzle?
Woo! That was a doozy of a puzzle.
Oh man! I’m 2/3 if the way 😂 well done.
Oh boy, I'ma need a pen and paper on this one. Looks like fun
Can there be any zeroes in the middle puzzle?
I got the letters from statements.
I genuinely don't have idea of how those diagonal colored puzzles work in real life. So I can' really proceed there. 🤗
If anyone can give me idea what it is called, help me.
It was fun!! Thanks for this!
@NianticOfficial Please tag this thread as "Announcement" and "Niantic". That's easier to find.
Hey buddy.. does same color in block denote same number/char?
Finally managed. was very tough...
I dont think so
I solved all the individual puzzles, but I'm struggling to get a keyword out of the middle one and to combine them into a passcode.
How do you know which clue is false on the middle one? I am not sure I was in the right path due to the efforts it might take.
You can find a small set of clues that contradict each other. One of those clues has to be wrong. There's only one change you can make to one of those clues that leads to a consistent solution. You can simply find that by trial and error and some logical thinking.
To be sure, in the middle one, the numbers in the same column or row should not be repeated?
Tell me, please, am I reasoning correctly: should there be only one digit in a cell? And there can be no zero.
Any advice for turning the very last part of the puzzle into a passcode? I've got the rest of it--just can't figure out what to do with those five boxes!
This works on the left and right puzzles, but seems not on the middle one. I can not find conflict clues because I don't know what rules should be applied to the puzzle.
Left and right puzzles were straightforward. Middle one was tough, but it came good eventually. Note: the answer to the middle puzzle is not directly a 7-letter keyword.
The middle one is a Kakuro puzzle.
