It's easier to just use the tanga blog, since they post separate blogs to discuss each puzzle anyways.

Thats a crappy interface!

I like the option of making

So you can decide how much help you need in solving a puzzle.

That's true, the spoilers are nice. I guess I just end up reading all of them until I figure it out anyways!

You need to write everything down, then ASK. If you ASK without writing it down first, it'll be a LOT harder.

Sheesh.
I've got a cold, but I've never had this much trouble with one of these puzzles.

Am I missing something obvious?

I've tried a bunch of stuff, but all I end up with is gibberish.

Unless I'm missing something, the third picture of the third row is wrong. It really should be an anchor instead of a ship.


Awesome puzzle though. Maybe my favorite to date.

At one time, I didn't really like Power Grid so Ted made my piece a Power Grid piece.

I think it's supposed to be an "Ark".

Instead of having a master thread to include all tanga puzzles, can we have a thread that just has links to the daily threads. That will keep some seperation for each day instead of wading through pages and pages to find the right day.

What almost threw me off is the kettle in the 6th spot on the 4th row. I guess that's not a kettle

It's all about pattern recognition once you identify the objects.

Just susbscribe to this thread. Then look at the last page just before the puzzle. Then the gmail you get when someone posts to this thread will point to that post which should be the beginning of posta all talking about the most current puzzle. That is how I handled the big thread during the contest.

We should make a Tanga wiki, where everyone can contribute spoilers and whatnot for each daily puzzle.

It's not a kettle, it's a teapot. A kettle is something your heat water in, a teapot is something you steep tea in. It is possible to have both in one, but you wouldn't heat water in that thing in the picture, you would add hot water from a seperate kettle.

Also, I am pretty sure that "ship" was an ark.

It says ask, not don't ask


And superspoiler

Spoiler (click to reveal)

The letters that aren't A,S or K are only useful for framing empty spaces when you remove the A's, S's and K's. I used Excel and colored the background of all the A, S and K cells and the answer became apparent.

Thanks for your advice in the superspoiler. I finally got it thanks to your clue.

And then we have to deal with some Americanisms.

I can see the animals on the Ark so no problem there.

But, for example, there's a picture that even now I'm pretty sure is a crocodile but is supposed to be an alligator.

And (not that it matters) but is that a Torch or a Flashlight? What's that red beer drinking thing? Oktoberfest?

My wife is Chinese. Is that a Gooseberry or a Kiwi fruit, or a Zespri? Gun or Pistol?

And that looks like a Sharpener to me, although I guess it isn't.

Aaaargh, the list was huge.

And yet somehow I got the answer anyway. Call me Mr Grumpy. ("Did you wake up grumpy this morning?" ... "No, I let him sleep in.")

That's usefull for someone folowing it on a daily basis. But not for somone who would go back and solve old puzzles. They may not need help for a particular day, then they have to weed though some extranous posts. Or like happened sometims in the old thread, someone who was working on a puzzle a few days old would post 3 days later.

What a shame not to know who Kool-Aid man is. Truly your childhood was not complete.
