Re: Master Tanga Puzzle Thread
Hard puzzle by Gameczar (Paint colors)
http://www.tanga.com/puzzles/1690-3-28-2008

I've tried applying all kinds of numbers to the paint chip names - but haven't found anything that looks promising...

What could the zeroes in those numbers refer to?

I've tried applying each of the numbers individually to the names of the colors

e.g. the last numbers 6063060
and skipped the 0's thinking "blank"


edit
I really liked tarnzur that s/b a color, kinda bronzish-blue

That word "pardon" keeps grabbing my attention. Any thoughts about it?

par - equality, average, normal
don - to put on, head of a family, tutor...

pardon - excuse - absolve, free

pardon .... pare down?

random thoughts - not particularly useful

what catches my eye is "Key Associate"

associate keys???

associate: to unite; combine - to enter into union - unite


added all the keys together to get 5282681 -> ebhbfha

For what it's worth, I believe 3 of the colors are mislabeled:
Carrot Stick #766532
Azure Wish #677232
Grape Harvest #739632

I agree that those three colors are mislabeled, and the error is perpetuated in the solution explanation. But it's solvable the way it is.

The problem is a base change. HEX 20 = Decimal 32 = " " (space) in ASCII.

The salt in the thread seems to imply hand positions, but like you said, I only get gibberish. Can't get any meaningful tanga numbers either.

I got it! It is hand positions. Huge clue: the answer is a 3-letter word.

I thought I was onto something with hand positions turning them into letters, but if it's a 3 letter answer, then I am nowheres close.
