    Default More block counting

    It's easier to count the blocks in columns. 10 of the columns do not have rabbit blocks. The 5th and 11th columns have two rabbit blocks and the 19th has three of them. I have counted from the bottom of each column. RB means rabbit block. There is little variation in the total number of blocks in each column.

    1. 5 RB 13. 18 + 1 = 19
    2. 20
    3. 9 RB 8. 17 + 1 = 18
    4. 21
    5. 1 RB 14 RB 6. 21 + 2 = 23
    6. 18
    7. 5 RB 14. 19 + 1 = 20
    8. 18
    9. 19 RB. 19 + 1 = 20
    10. 19
    11. 8 RB 1 RB 7. 16 + 2 = 18
    12. 21
    13. 19
    14. 6 RB 14. 20 + 1 = 21
    15. RB 20. 20 + 1 = 21
    16. 15 RB 5. 20 + 1 = 21
    17. 16
    18. 13 RB 2. 15 + 1 = 16
    19. 6 RB 13. 19 + 1 = 20
    20. 1 RB 13 RB 6 RB. 20 + 3 = 23
    21. 20
    22. 18
    23. 2 RB 17. 19 + 1 = 20
    24. 16 RB 1. 17 + 1 = 18
    25. RB 18. 18 + 1 = 19

    I hoped there might be some pattern in the numbers. Substituting letters for numbers gave nonsense.

    Counting blocks between rabbits didn't show me anything.

    I thought about counting just the blocks under a rabbit block - as if the rabbit were sitting on the blocks (counting sideways if that block was sideways), but there is a rabbit block at the bottom of the 15th column which has no blocks under it. Similarly for counting blocks above a rabbit block in the direction of the ears there is a rabbit block at the top of the 20th column.

    this is what im working on now.. maybe this will give some inspiration.. the bunnies must mean something so I figure they are like the directional circles... so the best place to start would be the bottom right bunny. what I am thinking is the bunny tells you which letters to pick until you hit the next bunny. there is only 3 orientations of the bunny.. the trick is figuring out which orientation signifies which letter orientation and which direction to go in. I am going to start in the bottom right and go up then to the bottom of column 2 and up etc.. writing down the different orientations and then trying to decode them. If anyone want to go left from the corner bunny trying the same perhaps we can solve this thing. or atleast eliminate a strong possibilty

    I don't know if this will help or further confuse your quest, but here is something I was working on at first before I saw those child's play blocks.
    I placed the circle code on the block according to the orientation of the letter shown. Use it or not as you will.

    That attachment is not readable. Let's try it this way.

    Well, some of us get a little obsessive when we are pushing pixels.

    (And then I saw Child's Play and decided that circle code was the wrong path to take.)

    OK, I just plotted out our path to here:


    Nothing too earthshaking in the way of codes here. Nothing really new and different. (The circle code was different but it certainly wasn't new, lol.)

    So, are we making this one harder than it really is? Are we being distracted by distractors?

    We got here from "shout ye rosary" and we needed to mind our manners; the other puzzle with blocks was named "Child's Play". Should we be looking at some sort of Playfair?

    Is that what those titles are hinting or more distraction?

    (Of course, there are double letters to deal with and the confusing extra-symbol bunnies.)

    the other way to get the worms is with:


    i've lost track of the numbers, but i thought there was an odd number of letter blocks, making a playfair not work. unless we only use certain orientations.
