If anyone wants salt on any of the three send me a GM.


What? The whole point of this thread is to swap hints!

Why should people send dozens of GMs around instead of simply posting a hint with a spoiler tag for people to read?


Exactly! This thread should be a place for a free exchange of hints for everyone. An offer to privately trade hints is inappropriate -- we don't need to get into bargaining on this thread. It's also silly to require everybody who wants a hint to send a GM.

The only thing I can think of with easy is Tomatojet. Doesn't sound like anything I've ever heard before. Could someone just send me the word, or at least post HARD salt.

Thanks

I have no idea about the hypercross. I got some of the more obvious ones but even intense googling does not give me the theme. Any salt?

any salt for the hard? All I can figure out is that they're islands or atolls. Any help would be appreciated.

You cut out the part when I was kidding. This is exactly why I have decided not to post hints anymore. I thought I may have been too hasty, but it has been a pretty consistent thing to get rude mails and responses.

It's been a while since I've posted this, but it looks like it's time to do so again.

I've created a community on LiveJournal, where people can post as much help as they would like. Ultimately, the answers are also posted, but hidden. The location of this forum is http://community.livejournal.com/tangapuzzlers/

All I ask is that if you are going to post the answers, they be hidden, you post the solution method you used (not hidden), and that you play nicely with others.

The idea for that forum was to provide an alternate place for people to seek assistance on puzzles, in case this forum was ever shut down. It has completely evolved on its own, and can be extremely salty most of the time. Feel free to post and/or visit, but please, play nicely!

Each set belongs to a specific country. Once you find that, take that trip "around the internet" and see what you get.

For the hypercross:

Very salty (if you have trouble getting started):

you will be removing "off" from the pictured things...



Some specific salts:

The Russian meats answer has a silent E on the end, which is not really indicated in the clue words.


One of the definitions is not very common. Google the definition text to find the word.

The football clue word is very general.

I'm stumped. That's an office, right? So removing the "off" sound leaves an "iss" or "uss" sound. And the second word is offing, so removing the "off" sound leaves an "ing" sound. What 5-letter word sounds like "issing" or "ussing"?

Does (Top Promoter) subliminal (Top Promoter) advertising (Top Promoter) really (Top Promoter) work?

now it is finny that is off. From the coffin, you need to keep the cin and from the coffee you need to keep the cee. This gives you cincee, but the c's make a hard c sound. Hope that helps.

"using" is wrong. It's the sound of "ice" + "ing".
