I'm sorry to do this to you, but you must share my agony. Let me know if you get #41 (I have to skip it every time).

Sorry, I gave up. It takes TOO LONG to load. Life's too short to wait that long, especially for something I probably will get bored with and quit before the end anyway. (I mean, really -- #41?? There's at least 41 questions?? Sheesh.)

Ugh. It made my browser crash after question 10. But this is the most fun I've had in a while.

I don't get The December 2nd question. Or the really big question.

These questions are mostly just dumb. *pout*

I like it. There are some stupid questions, but the ones that make sense but make you think creatively are very cool. I am stuck on #40. I don't have a bridge.

I'll tell you how to do 40 if you tell me the secret to 42

18 cracked me up when I got it, legitimately, out loud. That's enough for me to make me glad I clicked. Thanks. (I'm only in the low 20s, btw - thanks for taking up the rest of my night, too)

I skipped 40 and got to 42 and gave up.

Man, after 59, I'm afraid to restart because I'll have to do it again.
posted by Partial Law at 7:07 PM on February 27, 2007


42 is simply that. click on the 42nd 42 counting left to right.
in other words, the second from left in the last of the long rows....
i cant get passed the you cant skip one with the invisible ink, the second invisible ink one. is there a pattern? it says i hope you remembered...

I couldn't figure out the bridge hint, so I solved 40 by alt-tabbing, moving the mouse, and alt-tabbing back. Same way I beat don't shoot the puppy. :)

Cute (esp. 'CLiCK THE SMALLEST ONE', where the question # was the answer, and the wave your mouse around the colours to read the message comes to mind) but some of the 'logical' puzzles is annoying.
posted by porpoise at 8:13 PM on February 27, 2007


Ooh...I give up...too frustrating and annoying.

If you're stuck and need some hints this guy has gone up to 83. But don't click that link. It'd be cheating.
posted by timelord at 8:26 PM on February 27, 2007


Armageddon's solution is to click the exclamation point, by the way.
posted by Mr.Encyclopedia at 8:30 PM on February 27, 2007


Mwah-ha-ha. Yeah some of them are just stupid (why the fuck is cardboard egg mayonnaise flavored?) and basically require trial-and-error, which is annoying. I'd love to see some of the really evil ones removed -- the creative ones are enough fun that this game really doesn't need the sadism factor. I still haven't beat it myself, though I can get into the 80s pretty reliably.

Oh, and,

Downloading the flash file and opening it with media player classic allows one to cheat. The space bar will skip frames. Hence holding down 'space' let's you scroll through frames of the flash movie.

That's a nice bit of help towards finishing the game.

I got to number 66 without looking up answers, then I looked up the answer to 85ish, but then even when I looked up all the answers I couldn't manage to complete it all the way.

If we're compiling a complete spoiler list here, the answer given above to 56 is wrong. Clicking red twice will kill you every time. Next time you do question 50, write it down. That's the answer. Also, I hate you. And thanks.

Also, of strange foe, whether or not he considers Marmite 'Yum' is neither here nor there. But your Pa still won't.

It was kind of fun, right until "The answer is really big", wherein all four of the answers were plausibly correct ("answer" really big, "really big", infinity, and "an elephant") but only one ("an elephant") was the "right" one. Clever I like, but arbitrary is nonsense.
posted by davejay at 10:33 AM on February 28, 2007


I'm also a little stumped by some of the answers. Why "shoe polish" for the werewolf? And I thought the dog without a nose question would be "terrible".

Don't quote me, but I think this question is a pun on the adverb "really," and reads it to mean that the answer must refer to a real entity. The first three answers are conceptual, but the elephant is (at least for now) a real animal, so there you go.

I agree, some of the questions have several correct answers, but the "correct" one makes no sense, or is utterly wrong.

The "n" is the second character, after "December" in the sentence. That one I get.
