    Default Puzzle Boat

    No prizes, no gold, no treasure. Just some mental exercise and hopefully some fun.

    The group that frequents the "User Puzzles" section of Tweleve likes collaborative efforts; so this seems like something for us to have some fun with for a while.


    What is the Puzzle Boat?

    The Puzzle Boat is an online puzzle extravaganza, similar to the MIT Mystery Hunt or Microsoft Puzzle Hunts. It can be solved entirely online.
    Puzzles (red links on the map) are in PDF format (with one exception). Puzzle types include cryptograms, crosswords, and visual puzzles. Some puzzles are traditional, others are unconventional, others defy categorization. The use of outside references are acceptable, and absolutely necessary in some cases.


    As you solve puzzles, new puzzles will become available. Some puzzles require solutions to other puzzles. Solving these meta-puzzles will give you the names of several individuals on the island. Finding all of these individuals will allow you to complete the extravaganza.


    You can solve the Puzzle Boat with others by registering as a team. Others on your team can use this name and the password to access puzzles, and see how far the team has progressed. You can also solve on your own, but it's not as much fun...for most.

    I've set up a team just to see what it was like. If you want to play as a group, this name is not set in stone and we could change to something else if you want.

    Well, the Quick link on the other post won't work 'cause the auto-censor REALLY doesn't like the word f a b u l o u s. Sorry about that. If you are going to play just make your own bookmark after you log in.

    I started a note page already at "Anthony Piers" for the puzzle "The Hustle."

    j, this will be great for you because something is sure to fit with your skill-set.

    cthree says he'll play with us when we catch up to where he stopped.




    WARNING!!!! Be careful what you search. This is an old puzzle set and there are some answers for it out there in cyberspace. We want puzzle solving fun, not just answers.

    Thanks, Sluggy! I'm working on Dance Marathon now. I'm not so hot with number puzzles, but I'm hellonwheels on words.

    I've added some notes for Ring Around the Rosie (Blankets). 32 different 6 letter words are needed. I've listed some that I'm fairly sure about, some where I'm not so sure, and a few where I have no idea at this stage.

    I added notes for Dance Marathon (Sand Bar). I listed the words I have, and the blanks. I didn't list the dropout words. Some of those are very iffy.
