A Dead Monk

Probably not the only one you'll see.

According to the map key (which I haven't posted yet) those are indeed drains. They probably drain the lawn and also keep the well fed as well.

If they're not drains then they're wooden crates and boxes (unlikely as there's a toolshed so they wouldn't leave stuff out here) or stone plinths (like a birdtable or a sundial).

The Theydori puzzle box.



The shaded button is the silver one. The buttons without a hand cannot be pressed in.

So what is it we have to do with this? Work out a way to press a button in each row without any adjacent buttons being pushed?

I'd forgotten it came with instructions :p.

The silver button is considered "pressed" by default. I'm considering putting numbers down one side and letters along the top for reference. Basicaly..... you need to press seven more buttons and each pressed button cannot line up with another one verticaly, horizontaly or diagonaly. If you're lucky someone who already knows how to open it is still alive.

I believe I've worked out a solution, using nothing more than Excel and the power of my mind ;)


I think if you compare this with the handout an dinstructions, you'll see that the red buttons are the ones that need to be pushed.  Of course, I don't know if there are any other solutions, but I don't think so, since this solution is symetric in the 180 degree rotation.

Good work mate! the fun ny thing was since Aurum wouldn't have been either able and/or interested in it, I didn't even bother to think about the solution. When i first saw it I thought about using excel too :icon_wink:

Without being smug about it, I find Sudoko to be like wordsearch puzzles, its just a matter of following the rules, so this was easy, once I found the 10 mins to work through the potentialities of it.

Raul wasn't too interested either, but my brain wouldn't let it go! :D Damn my OC tendancies!

Yeah, just count all the numbers that line up with a sqaure and you've suddenly only got two or three numbers that could possibly be in it. Sometimes you'll miss a double negative but I tend to get about 18 out of 20 su doku's right and enjoy doing it :).
