# 13 Archetypes: Skeptic

You can solve the cross words puzzle without using all equations. So, you can have the solution without looking at the equation with the error

• I'm stuck having solved all three puzzles. I have the parts if the passcode from the left and center but converting the numbers from the right puzzle into the right format is killing me.

The dreamer hint hasn't helped. I can't see how the numbers are formed.

• ```Any clue on how to solve the riddle on the right, I don't understand the relationship of the letters
```
• Welcome to the club.

With some of the hints here, I managed to get a bit forward. However, I am still wondering which small bit I am missing. Maybe you somehow pair up the numbers in the right puzzle in a different way?

• when I had the three answers it seemed that the keyword was meaningless and that I was missing a number in the prefix.

if you are there, you are doing well, now you must see it as a whole not as parts

And remember that it has the form #xx#x# [keyword] ##xx

I was stuck at this point for about an hour last night, and it was super frustrating. But think about whether there is a way to change the xxx into a different form. The first of the decoding challenges used a similar trick, if that helps.

• I believe I have the keyword and the suffix, but no matter which way in parse it, as a whole, in part, split in various ways, I'm hitting a wall.

Solved hours ago, in effect, the 3 puzzles have an error, the one on the right is extremely easy, the one on the right has to be patiently solved, as a degree in mathematics it was very easy for me, the central puzzle, I recommend them solve it from the bottom up.

Seems like I'm definitely overthinking the puzzle to the right. I found the false clue but can't figure out how to "fix" the problem.

Edit: I'm dumb. I already fixed the problem by doing the work, that's why there wasn't a problem...😎

• hmmm maybe the problem is how you have decoded the numerical solution of the puzzle on the right

in the correct way you should get an alphanumeric result

For the one on the right, if you know the value you think the wrong equation should have, based on all the other ones working well in the grid, the ‘fix’ is to use the value that worked in grid vs the one solved mathematically. I hope that helps without giving too much away!

For anyone stuck in the middle puzzle, some have said solving from bottom helped, but for me going from top was most straightforward. I started top left, and tackled the ones with the fewest possible combinations first. It was a bit brute force for me, trying combinations until I was sure they fit in the grid.

Guys can you any redeem code? I'm stuck on Redeeming passcode... for forever, on mobile it gives An error occurred after some time.

• is the error for the middle puzzle at the top left? if so how do I fix the error

• En el primero , segundo y 3ro

• I know what the mistake of the puzzle on the right is, but I don't know what I have to do with those digits. Some help?

• ✭✭✭✭

for at least the number puzzles are, they are over defined (more clues than the minimum you need to solve each puzzle), so you don’t need to “fix” the error. Just pretend the false clue (once you identify it) is not there.

• Work, tired date it is difficult for me to sit down to be able to solve just the right one 😭😭😭

• Having a problem with the prefix and I think it's with the puzzle on the right. Pretty sure I found the error clue and all the other equations work out and cross check with each other. I'm also pretty sure I see the "dreamer" number. My problem might be finding the # portion from the right side puzzle. If anyone can give a tip isn't just repeating what has already been said, it would be greatly appreciated.

• Finally got it! It didn't help that I screwed up on writing down the passcode format. My first try on that part was correct after all. I didn't have all the pieces at that time so ditched it after seeing it didn't fit my screwed up format.

The middle and right puzzle don't have the same method to convert the numbers from the solved puzzle to the correct characters.

• I made it! Thanks for all the tips

I'm in the same situation, it's been more than two hours now trying to redeem a passcode that someone who already solved it has confirmed me that is the correct one 😐️

All puzzle solved but i dont know what to do with numbers of the middle puzzle...

Are there still active problems with passcode redemption @NianticBrian ? This is a timed competition. Resolving this issue quickly would be extremely helpful. Thanks.

Same here. I think I have solved the challenge, but I'm stuck trying to redeem the passcode on the intel for more than 1 hour.

I keep receiving "Invalid passcode". I'm starting to have doubts on its correctness!

For the people thinking on the challenge:

• the left puzzle is a set of logic assumptions, but if you know how the passcode should end, it's easy to solve....
• the middle one is a Kakuro puzzle. Try to look first on the wrong number. Then you can start from there and complete it. If you are very very in trouble, there are also online Kakuro solver to help you out!
• the right puzzle is a simple set of linear equations and you have to resolve each letter. Start with the one already defined and keep solving one by one searching for the one you already have, and you'll find out easily which one is wrong!
• after you have solved them, do the same thing for the dreamer challenge to merge and find the passcode #xx#x#[keyword]##xx.

Hopefully also my passcode (if correct!) will be redeemed soon 😅

• I solved it 3 hours ago, and have been unsuccessful at submitting the code, I did confirm with a friend who got it that I have the correct code
