Can you get to seven in this puzzle using clues hidden in the text, images, HTML and CSS? If you can get to the seventh page, can you get to fourteen? How about get to 28?

This reminds me a lot of antiriddle. Which is a good thing.

This isn't an ad for a ski resort, isn't it?

The first few were reasonable, but I have no idea what to do with the videogame screencaps.

My wife recently turned me on to weffriddles. I'm on level 28. This looks like it might be a good alternative when I get stuck. Now I'll never get anything done.

On the first link, I got to the second one, realized what I had to do and kind of groaned, decided not to do it, then changed my mind. Then I got to the third one, realized what I had to do, and decided not to do it. I don't think I'm going to change my mind this time.

Maybe the later ones require critical thinking, but the 2nd and 3rd felt a lot more like busy work.

The second link seems cooler (riddles instead of busy work). It probably requires too much critical thinking for me right now, but in a good way.

gleuschk: yep, that one's got me stuck as well.

And I feel like I'm. So. Close.

Arrgh.

Every time I see one of these puzzles, I get the distinct impression that it is a lot more fun making them than solving them.

It most definitely is.

I'm stuck on #4 as well, the screen caps. The first one was just obvious, the second two kind of felt like work but I liked it.

My favorite online puzzle-type game of all time is still laser though. Definitely requires more brain power than your average puzzler, especially near the end.

cj_: thanks. That laser game is awesome.

Hints for #4, in rot13:

Unir lbh ybbxrq ng gur fbhepr? Gur pyhr vf nqqerffrq gb gur grkg. Vs lbh'ir gevrq gung nyernql, gel ybbxvat zber pybfryl ng gur jebat nafjref.

I just like to be cryptically helpful.

Thanks for the post. Since my career and other interests have pulled me away from the large chunks of time I used to spend playing video games, it's nice to have a puzzle to work on, mull over, and check back into every now and then.

The error screen on the modenstudios.com page reminds me of a more abrupt version of the "it's getting daaaarker" warning on Cave of the Word Wizard.

First post!

No idea about step two. Is this something only Americans understand?
I've tried dc.html, washington.html

What is it I'm missing here?
