  • Ahh now i feel stupid lol... it does say the number of crows.... these puzzles in the 'white' lodge are pretty difficult.

  • This was by far the worst puzzle in the game for me. This was one of the only ones I had to use hints on. My problem was the photos couldn't be rearranged. It would have been easier if you could have moved the photos around to overlap them and see the different possibilities.

  • Agreed that it would have been good to be able to rearrange the pictures, but then maybe it would have been a lot easier, and the difficulty was what made this puzzle quite fun for me.

  • Yeah, if you could re-arrange the pics it would have become like the "auto-snap" jigsaw puzzles.

    Utterly crap and pointless...

    I didn't say it had to snap together. I just said you should be able to move the photos around to think of different possibilities. My best bet was to either do it mentally or make my own drawings of each photo and figure it out. Instead I pretty much resorted to using my fingers to cover up birds that I could count as possible duplicates.

  • This puzzle is exactly like an exercise in DNA sequencing that I give my Biology students every year. I immediately printed it out, cut out the birds, and got the right answer on the first try.

  • Damn... that was nasty! I spent so much time figuring out the minimum sequence, but didn't consider counting crows only. :rolleyes: Tricky puzzle!

    For a computer game, I'm using pencil and paper surprisingly often! (Not that that's a bad thing.) I don't think making everything auto-snap is a good solution. I was a little disappointed at how easy the dinner plate became for example, because even though I only started and hadn't figured out how to put everything together, large chunks had already snapped together, making the rest a whole lot easier.

  • Hardest puzzle so far for me, by far!

  • This one was eeevil. I got the correct layout almost immediately in my head; when that was rejected I confirmed it on paper and was puzzled for a very long time. It never occurred to me to only count the black birds.
