Can anyone enlighten me to the theme of the hypercross.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Is it obscure video or board games?

Hard: This is where I am at, but I have hit a roadblock. any help?

Spoiler (click to reveal)

I don't think the 9 puzzle answers or authors matter at this point, but I could be wrong.

If you take the day of month each puzzle was posted, and go to the alphabet I get the following phrase: easy month

but everything I have tried after that comes up empty.


I could be way off, but I figured sharing this might help someone... or completely mislead them... don't really know.

Furthermore, if you take month numerals for the easy one-word wonders and Tanga into the solutions - you get A GALE which anagrams to ALGAE. Entering common Gales hasn't worked either.

For those of you who are just frustrated you can use the AGALE and make a nine letter word:

You are suposed to Go to the puzzle days for the puzzles listed and use the month to extract a letter from the EASY puzzle for that day

What's #5 on the hypercross? The cartoon character in the mirror.

I've got C_E_CE. That still doesn't ring any bells.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

The second C is incorrect. Check your across word and think more generically. Flavor is not important. The answer to #5 is partnered to the Toy Story character in #10.

Hi Tommy,

It is from

, as you've figured out. I used the numbering in the

G. Schirmer score
, which caused some confusion - I didn't realize there were others. Once you find the right one, the use of the numbers is a standard

alphabetic substitution
, so you should easily be able to recognize when you have the right answer.

1-09-2008 hard puzzle
Went thru all the colors, try the hex for that (ff681f), tried it with spaces and still not working. This is real lame in my book.


NM, I was using the Crayola listing in Wikipedia for the hex colors and should have just used the normal hex color entry in wiki.

This used to be a great place to come for hints that were a little saltier than the ones posted on the Tanga site. Now there's nothing. As far as I can see, all the hints or discussions for the last two weeks are contained on one page. What happened? Did everyone go to another site, or was there a new thread created that I don't know about?

This thread died (for me) when Aldie took it off the front page.

One alternative is perhaps the LiveJournal site, but they just give out answers, no interactivity or mild salting.
