Counted the letters. XI and vi are both 2 letters(and so equal), and Vii is 3. IX is also 2. But 232 doesn’t work either. Tried subtracting the five to get I, II, and IV. But 122 doesn’t work either. Out of ideas.
Clue one is a cheat as it tells you nothing that is not already shown already.Participant19/01/2019 at 10:49Post count: 10
The latin numbers just give numbers… think in english… count letters of numbersParticipant19/01/2019 at 13:55Post count: 21
Oh my goodness. I had to read that five times to get what you were saying. I would never have gone that way.Participant09/03/2019 at 22:21Post count: 4
Im totally stuck. Used both hints which gave me nothing i didnt already know.
Based on XI = 6 and XIII = 8 i have worked out what the 6,7 and 9 should be and nothings happening!
I dont understand what more i could need to do!Participant10/03/2019 at 00:30Post count: 21
You have the order. Now go to post #2711 by John 26 and rearrange your thinking. Good luckParticipant14/05/2019 at 11:22Post count: 11
This is frustrating. This puzzle is set up all sorts of flawed. I counted. I have the answers. I followed the order 6-7-9. Nothing works. Double counted/triple counted. Counted alternative ways. I did the order on the page, ignoring the 6-7-9 function. Nope.Participant14/05/2019 at 11:25Post count: 11
Of course I got it right after I said that. But this is a flawed setup. Ten & three equal 8 but thirteen also equals 8. Same goes for the example of 6 next to it. Ten & one equal 6. But eleven also equals 6. Poor examples.Participant15/05/2019 at 10:06Post count: 6
Have been watching you for a while, you try to find flaws in every step you don t feel you can solve it easily. This forum is to assist more players to get pass a riddle and not for reading judgemental comments like yours, for crying out loud!Participant10/07/2019 at 01:40Post count: 1
Will someone just give me the answer!! I’ve made it through most of this book with relative ease and this chapter is why I put the book down 6 months ago and stopped bothering. Finally picked it up again and chased EVERY SINGLE possibility I could and I’m ready to just give up on it againParticipant10/07/2019 at 04:38Post count: 21
Need to use John Capender clue above. Think in English. Count letters of numbers. Honest this works when you see it.Participant08/09/2019 at 15:22Post count: 7
I have tried everything I can think of, including manually putting random 3 letter words (!).
From the posts here I’m assuming the answer is a 3 letter word, right?
The hints in this riddle were truly obvious, and didn’t help at all..
I have understood the non Latin numerals and I have counted the letters in all the ways I can think of.
(With the 6-7-9 key and without).
Can anyone please help bit more?
This riddle is the only one so far that has me confused and I have played games such as this before..
