    Default The Master Theorem

    A site with weekly puzzles and other ways to collect points. The puzzles are fun - not too difficult but the "badges" which are optional can be quite tricky!

    Move to the Beat -- The Master Theorem (puzzle games, free puzzles, online games, word puzzles)

    Each new puzzle is called a Theorem and is only available for a week -- however, you can go to the archives and if you do them you still score some points. I have only done the one before the current one and have some badges. They are fun --- check it out.

    It's from Columbia University

    I love this puzzle site... I am working my way through the seals right now... and some of the 'hidden' puzzles... It distracts me from Cowboy... lol...

    Can't quite figure out the end game to RECURSION, or what the objective of the CLOCK one is at all... fun though...

    Have the first three boxes solved for Recursion, but can't figure out what that means. Why isn't it necessarily an infinite loop? Ugh...

    For the clock, not sure the objective. I can make the bell ring, but don't really know why it lands on those particular numbers... is it a numeric sequence?

    Going to go for the traveler badge tonight ( I assume it's a different IP address log-in thingy...) And tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo... so there will be a new puzzle there. Yay!

    For Recursion, once you have the 3 boxes it helps to read a different Wiki page then the one given: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recursi...mputer_science). If you need a further nudge let me know.

    The clock one drove me crazy! The bell is important as is the flashing number. It's more a test of patience and following than anything else.

    Currently I am stuck trying to get the Traveler Seal. Clueless.

    Good luck on the new one tonight/tomorrow!

    (I dig Leonard Cohen by the way...)

    Okay! Got Recursion finally... ! Woohoo...! Now I'm trying to figure out the clock... everytime I hit the bell, I don't know where to go next...

    Oh, and I realized I don't even know where Next to Nothing is... sigh... Getting there though! 15 seals now... yay! Sure to be a new one tomorrow too!

    New theorem is up... I think I have the right thing to anagram... but not coming up well... certainly not possible to palindrome my answer...

    LoL!!! Good! The more the merrier! You should have gotten the Cinco de Mayo seal if you logged in today. You can do the archived theroems for points, and the newer ones will still get you more points. The archived ones will get you 10. But to me, it's just fun to do the puzzles. Explore the site there are many hidden seals to uncover!

    Which one is the clock - I didn't see that one available for solving.
