    I'll wait another day before posting the solution. It would seem appropriate to do so on the third day after posting the third part.

    Arrow Answer and Twollar distribution

    Veni, vidi, vici - I came, I saw, I conquered (solved a few puzzles). But will ye conquer (solve) mine?

    The puzzle has been divided into three parts, which will be posted on three consecutive days. 300 Twollars will be divided amongst solvers, contributers and team players.
    The answer was the Ides of March (15 March)
    Explanations will be posted.


    solvers
    Three sent a PM with that answer.
    Molnar was almost there.
    corgipower sent the answer in just a few minutes after the third part had been posted.

    corgipower - 50 Twollars
    sslug - 35 Twollars
    gabi - 25 Twollars
    Molnar - 10 Twollars


    contributers and team players
    Everyone was a supporter/team player at some time.

    corgipower - 30 Twollars
    gabi - 30 Twollars
    Molnar - 30 Twollars
    sslug - 30 Twollars


    "players" - having fun
    Extra contributions - in Latin.

    corgipower - 20 Twollars
    Molnar - 20 Twollars
    sslug - 20 Twollars

    Default Solution

    VENI VIDI VICI
    Reasonably well known statement made by Julius Caesar.
    Three words suggested three parts.
    V is the roman numeral for 5.
    There were 5 techniques used in solving this puzzle.

    Enigma est divisa in partes tres

    This statement was intended to provide a hint that words found might be in Latin.

    Pars Prima

    II II I I III I III I II IIII I I
    I V IIII III IIII IIII
    III IIII III II III III II IIII IIII III

    II IIII III III
    III V I I IIII II IIII IIII I V IIII III

    I'll work on it, but there seem to be a number of other puzzles around at the moment.

    I need time to recharge the batteries.

    Wow. That was a good puzzle. I didn't work it. I stared at the first puzzle, but my mind never really engaged. Good work Knocka!
    I caught you a delicious bass.
