The first section of letters worked out but I don't know what to do next.

I applied the letters below to the numbers on the top and got "try it on rows"


Now I'm stuck.

I hate to say it but I'm stumped on both the easy and hard. Salt would be great to get me started.

On the easy one, there is a verb suggested by the picture inside the letter. Then treat it like a rebus.

For the easy: Consider the event and the relative position.

For the hard: I'll have to get back to you. . .

PS That comment on the hard one wasn't salt.

Ditto. Looked it up afterwards. Only entered it from the comments.

Yes, easy puzzle IS an older word. A little obscure, but it IS a word...

Now, how to do more on the hard puzzle? Where to put what? Exchange what for what in order to 'cascade'?....

For the hard:

Think of step literally and use each one to help you do the next. I started by counting the number of numbers in each row and noticed something

On the easy puzzle, I'm stumped. All the talk of it being an older word pretty much throws away everything my mind's trying to tell me (it keeps coming back to "J-Pop", or Japanese Pop, a music style especially popular among fans of Japanese cartoons or anime)

But clearly that's not it. While relatively obscure, that's a fairly new word. And 'jpop' / 'j-pop' / 'jaypop' don't take.

I take consolation in being the 2nd to solve the hard puzzle. But it'll suck not to be in the top 100 of the easy.

My comment on the hard? It turned out to be salt for me.

you've got the correct parts to the answer, just in the wrong order and missing a little connector word. What is the 'pop' inside of?

Okay, what I have noticed so far:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
The top line translates into: TRY IT ON ROWS

Each line has the following numbers and ranges:

1st line: 11 numbers, ranged 1-16
2nd line: 16 numbers, ranged 1-18
3rd line: 18 numbers, ranged 1-20
4th line: 20 numbers, ranged 1-22
5th line: 22 numbers, ranged 1-27
6th line: 27 numbers, ranged 1-27


Now I am stumped...

I got it now, despite it being a word I have never heard in my life. I'm sure that rebus ordering crossed my mind several times but was thrown out with every other combination that made words-that-as-far-as-I-knew-weren't-words.



Howard, you're red hot. When I made the observation you made, within a minute I knew the solving method. And ten minutes of tedious iteration later, I had an answer.

For the programmers in the crowd:

think: indirect indexing. *very* indirect indexing.

Hard Puzzle Salt

I have a start.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Row 1: Try it on rows

Use the numbers to place letters in Row 2:

i.e. Row 1, Letter 1 = Row 2, Letter 15

So far looks like it spells

Row 2: Writeonmythroats (some letters just guessed)

I made those same observations so that led me to think
Spoiler (click to reveal)
apply the original key to the 6th row, and then number those letters 1-27 and use that as the key for the 5th row, and so on
but no love... cry

Yeah, I tried starting on the lowest row, and 'cascaded' each line upward. I ended up with

I have row 2. I got it by applying row one to row two.

Example: the 15th number of row 2 is 14: a
the 12th number of row 2 is 7: n


It eventually spells 'another time'. And now I'm stuck again.

EDIT: Got it. Wow. Um, wow. This must have been horrible to check multiple times before submitting.

10-1 you end up with 'write on my throatspellingcheck'.

Sigh....

Spoiler (click to reveal)
If you write down

TRYITONROWS

and you assume that those letters came from ROW 2 with the

15..12..9..3..

indexing letters from ROW 2, you can backtrack some of the letters that make up ROW 2 but not all of them.
