that although I am having some problems on some of the questions, this has been the most enjoyable puzzle experience that I've had. I am working alone and it's taking me some time, but I am enjoying it. What I enjoy the most is that there is an "a ha!" response that goes off in my head when I get the answer. Many other contests have a few good, plausible answers for the riddles and the worst part is formatting issues.

I commend you for such an enjoyable ride (until I get stuck again). Wink

I too commend the quiz!

It was most enjoyable until I had to bow out (coz it was beyond me!)

Really enjoyed the way people helped me out, so thanks to all those that did!

I've given up now..........stranded somewhere in "um" and also in another one............twice stranded!!! LOL

Great quiz...........just a bit too clever for me!

Nooooo, don't give up, you can't mean it, you really want to stay in there with the Minotaur.
Plesae keep trying, keep posting on the forums for help, there are so many people that want to help with nudges and hints.
You have to escape!

Hi Caro,

I've given up on one I could do.....which is strange I know! But just around the corner will be another binary I'm sure......then I'll be grovelling for help again and feeling very dim!

The challenge is abosuletly brilliant..........I'm ducking out because I'm not up to it!!!

Electra, come back!! You have been such a great help to me, and I would love to return the favor. The math ones are the ones I do best. I can beat you with hints! Don't give up, but I know what you mean. I almost gave up and then I couldn't resist and came back.

i used to enjoy the riddle web sites that you change the HTML but this is not only more exciting and easier i really like the fact you can get a right answer, go through more questions then get told the past 5 or so questions were taking you to a dead end!

unique, extremely funny yet frustrating Wink and makes ya wanna stick to it.

Been there, done that. I dreamt that the puzzle was something to do with an advert for a well known beer. Not only did I have the wrong name for the beer in the advert, the puzzle was totally unrelated to beer in the first place. Embarassed

Laughing PMSL. Mind you, I do find that a drink or two helps me thinka little more imaginatively Laughing

I am also having a great time here - really clever puzzles. Nice one SP.

Electra, come back! help me catch up and I we can fumble our way through to the exit. I can do binary Laughing

Why do I do this to myself?

This is a little premptive on the 'sleepless nights' bit (there has only been one so far!!!), but it gets the message across............a set of puzzles that stays with you long after you have logged out and gone to bed is something special.....

I have to say that this has has been one of the most addictive puzzle sites I have ever come across....I am a newbie here, and I was delighted to come across this one in a link after completing another commercial puzzle.

The biggest thing I would have to say (and this is directed at everyone, not just Sparky!!) is the friendliness of the people here (the one time (so far!!) I have asked for help, it poured in - the people here are wonderful!!!)
