Gahhh! Over thinking and under producing.

Even with the salt ya tossed I'm still on a MSG only diet.


I'm failing to link the dots to the over/under of the letters. Also I have 5 words 3 rows of dots and 8 Letters all words are not uniform in length etc etc etc... I'm not adding it up properly for some reason.

First middle last
First last
First middle last yeilds nothing yet.



Me as the night is progressing. --> shakesoblue

OK, I got all the words very easy, even with the misspellings throwing me off.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Clarinet (no mispellings)
sal(e)d (lots of extra letters)
Magnesium (M being used as beginning and end)
calendar (misspelling w/ I for a at end)
ostrich (extra p thrown in for no real reason)


Now what? I connected the dots and got very close to a real word, but one letter threw me off. that, and one of my connections didn't really make sense at all. Help, anyone? Possible GM interchange?

(EDIT: Effing...Just got it and am now kicking self...please ignore the n00b to BGG who usually jsut posts on the Tanga blog...)

1)

You won't use letters that cause you to mis-spell the words

2) SALTY
Spoiler (click to reveal)
This is a very visual puzzle

3) the length of the answer is

five letters - one per picture

I get reasonable letters for three of five:

S (something that might be a T) O (something that looks like an inverted U) M


So what obvious thing am I missing?

[EDIT: Never mind.]

For those who don't have Photoshop, the Paint program that comes with windows is just as good.

Right click on the puzzle image
select "copy image"
Open paint
Paste

Then use the tools to draw lines etc.

Oh, and also

If you print out the puzzle and write on it following the instructions you should get them

Now that's just rubbing it in!!! I look out the window and see white (and it isn't white sand). Temp is hovering at freezing. Wind chill makes it feel like 22. brrrr!


Mysti - check your geekmail - there should be a Mailbox link somewhere on this page - perhaps in the upper left hand region of this page...

I did it the old fashioned way with a pencil and paper. I couldn't get the salad at first, but then it became clear to me. Of course it was at 2:00 in the morning

Re: Master Tanga Puzzle Thread
Tanga Puzzle February 18th, 2007

WELCOME NEWBIES
It looks like we got an influx of new people with the Ze Frank puzzle.

Have fun.

Just a couple requests...
If you think you're posting something which is "salty" (meaning a strong hint) please select the text and select the "spoiler" formatting above the text entry box. This allows people to choose to read (or not read) the stronger hints.

If you are posting something really really salty - please put a warning before the spoiler.

You can edit a previous post if you think you need to change the formatting or change wording.

Enjoy!!!
