I was confused by the "+" sign. It is not a mathematical operator. Check [35], #4, on the Tanga forum. I needed a mail from the puzzlemaker to get past the "+".

Even with the mail I can't figure out the second step. I give up.

I agree should ahve been worth more points. There is no way someone will solve this in under five minutes. nless they look at the help first. gypsy, do you play GE war?

It seems alot of the items you selected, were exactly the same as in that game.

I don't! I'm not sure how I picked them ... just wanted some variety.

Thanks, all! You've been incredibly kind; don't think I haven't noticed. I'm going to head out for a while, but will be back on later and tomorrow. This was a lot of fun for me, so thank you.

And, of course, apologies to those I annoyed!

Amen, brother.

I propose that the points per puzzle be calculated dynamically based on the average solve time. For example this one is currently taking well over an hour to solve on average. That has to be a 4-pointer in my book.

What do you say, Aaron? Now that you have all this free time with everyone else doing puzzles for you, why not code up a little program to calculate puzzle points based on average solve time. Just do the calcations each night at midnight (for instance) after you have a good sample size of solve times.

I need some geekmail.

I have processed the left, using "Game Log Ops", and even figured out what #7 was, and its proper name. I have followed gypsy's own salt here about processing the right side, but here's what I get:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
PALAULO C*****Y


Though I have one obvious word there, google has not helped me with a final answer. Here are my left sides:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
S***** ** L******
E***** T****
G***** G*** B****
S***** O**** H****
S*****
S*********
C***** *** R*******


Help! What has gone wrong, and pass the aspirin please!

EDIT: I'm redacting this to make it less salty. Apologies to anyone who had theri fun spoiled, I was quite frustrated by the time I posted this.

We must both be unable to follow directions. I've got

Spoiler (click to reveal)
PALANLI COUNTRY


and am currently working back to try to find out where I fucked it up


Gah! Think I've got it now but tanga's down. Feh. Oddly enough the wrong answer I got is actually a city too.

Wow, Duane, that is some heavy duty salt you are spreading around. That should really shorten the average solve times for anyone reading this thread.

Anyway, to answer your question, you just need to redo the right-side of #2. You have all the correct left side answers but you just messed up the right side formula once.

Here are the steps (to relieve our very creative puzzlemaster from having to message so many )

Walkthrough without specific answers ahead:

First step:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
decipher the stuff on the left. The format is [search for this] = [^of words]. Where do you search? Translate the instructions (yay anagrams!)


Second step:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
use what you are given in step one to get two seven letter words. How? Read the "+" as an "and", thus you get ___ is ___ and ___ is ___. Remember...the number of words in step one was important for a reason...


Final step:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
use what you are given in step two to find the word that answers the puzzle. The first word may not be familiar, but a search for it should get you the proper response


-MMM

That was sincere. Once you figure out what the left side is, the puzzle is really fun to do

I recommend everyone zoom Great stuff.

Well, let's just say I learned a lot about Spam, amps, and the Aquatic Plant Management Society before I figured out the right one.


D'oh!

After the fact: I got a few loose threads ...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
1) Exactly what does "GAME LOG OPS" refer to?

2) Why didn't the S-O-H show up when I Zoomed in? (I used MapQuest.)

3) What is #7?
