Location Puzzle

  1. #0: #1: Here are some tips while taking the quiz:
    For question #1, make sure you're in shape.
    For question #2, things might be a little repetitive.
    For question #3, pick some delicious morsels.
    For question #4, just choose the option that sounds best.
    For question #5, feel free to shorten your answer.
    For question #6, please write out your answer fully.
  2. #1: The quiz will tell you your identity: one answer to each question corresponds to CARRIE, one to MONICA, one to VIOLET, and one to the final answer.
  3. #2: Each answer to each question corresponds to a letter. For example, the answers to question #1 form letter shapes.
  4. #3: Descriptions in question #2 all just use one vowel.
  5. #4: The hot dog condiments in question #3 spell out letters in Morse code.
  6. #5: When read aloud, the activities in question #4 sound like letters. For example, talking like a pirate sounds like "R".
  7. #6: The numbers in question #5 have common one-letter names.
  8. #7: The people in question #6 have famous middle initials.
  9. #8: The letters from each question are: CJMV, AEIO, KNOR, ILRY, CEIL, and AELT.
  10. #9: Three of the letters to each question spell CARRIE, MONICA, and VIOLET. The remaining letters spell the answer.
  11. #10: The answer is JEKYLL.
  12. JEKYLL


  1. #1: Try to identify the pictures, comparing the names of the items on the left and the items on the right.
  2. #2: The first three letters of each item on the left match up with the last three letters (in reverse) of an item on the right. For example, SURfer matches up with walRUS.
  3. #3: The letters on the right are always part of the first half of the word. For example, W is in the first half of WALRUS.
  4. #4: Since the words on the right are "reflections" of the words on the left, try reading the reflections of these letters. For example, the W in Walrus matches up with the R surfeR.
  5. FLIPS


  1. #1: The bolded letters come in sets of three, like "this, that, and the other".
  2. #2: For example, "animal" in Lawful Good matches up with "vegetable" in Neutral Good.
  3. #3: But the full phrase is "animal, vegetable, [or] mineral". The third item in each phrase is missing.
  4. #4: The third items start with letters from A to M, which gives an ordering of the phrases.
  5. #5: For each phrase, the location of the two given words creates a semaphore letter, as clued by "waving flags in the air".


  1. #1: These are crossword clues, but each word is "mutated" in some way. The rule is the same for every word in a given clue.
  2. #2: For example, "DRUMME STAR O TH BEATLE" is just "DRUMMER STARR OF THE BEATLES", but with the last letter of each word removed.
  3. #3: The answer to that clue is RINGO, but in order to fit the blanks we'll need to use the same rule. Removing the last letter gives RING, which is also a word.
  4. #4: The words that we get after transforming the answers fit into certain categories. For example, GREAT, AMAZING, and FANTASTIC go with Words of Affirmation, and they fit in the first row of blanks at the bottom of the page.
  5. #5: The other categories are: Quality time: times of day Receiving gifts: gifts from the Twelve Days of Christmas Acts of service: words that can go before ""service"" Physical touch: physical ways of showing affection
  6. "
  7. #6: Fit these words into the correct blanks at the bottom of the page (based on their category and length), and read the hearts.


  1. #1: The words in the example can form an analogy: NICKEL : DIME :: CUP : ?.
  2. #2: A nickel is half a dime, and a cup is half of a pint. So PINT should be written in the top-right space.
  3. #3: There are lots of other analogies hiding in the grid. Some of them are diagonal, like HUFFLEPUFF : BADGER :: GRIFFINDOR : ?.
  4. #4: Some analogies are based on spelling (LAMINA : ANIMAL :: REP : ?) or pronunciation (FAIR : FLARE :: FOUR : ?).
  5. #4: You can cross off words as you use them. Every white space will eventually have a word written in it, and those words will be used in later analogies.
  6. #5: Eventually, you'll get an analogy that puts a word in the star: PERU : LIMA :: HUNGARY : ?

MBTI (Meta)

  1. #1: The logic puzzle rules refer to the eight Myers-Briggs personality types, each of which is represented by a single letter.
  2. #2: Every answer contains four of these letters, which tells you what rules it follows. For example, JANET is an ENTJ, so it follows the extrovert, intuitive, thinking, and judging rules.
  3. #3: Since JANET is thinking (no diagonal steps) and judging (no turns), it must go from the top-left to the bottom-left (or else NUPTIAL won't be able to satisfy its intuiting rule).
  4. #4: The intuiting/sensing rules also tell you that NUPTIAL must start in the fourth square of the top row.
  5. #5: The rules for NUPTIAL and BUDAPEST tell you that BUDAPEST must start at the bottom, and wrap along the outside until it reaches the top-right.
  6. "
  7. #6: From this point, you can complete the rest of the grid: J I F N T A P L U S N L S P E E A I T P T B U D A
  8. "


  1. #1: It's helpful to mark squares that cannot contain a voter, since you know that the loop must pass through those squares. In particular, there can't be a voter on any of outside cells of the grid in the top four rows, since those voters would definitely be outside the loop.
  2. #2: Start by identifying the voters that the top-right and bottom-left "1" clues are pointing at. You can get the upper one using the previous deduction, and the bottom one using the fact that it must be outside the loop. Also, the bottom one must have one neighbor, and you can figure out where that goes.
  3. #3: There are several places in the bottom half that we can now say must not have a voter, or else that voter would be inside the loop.
  4. #4: Now the 3 clues don't have much room, so we can place a few more voters. We can also draw parts of the loop through some of the cells that we've said have no voter.
  5. #5: From here we can make a few more inside/outside deductions to forbid a voter in certain places. Also remember that there must be only one loop, and the strands in the bottom left are in danger of being closed off.
  6. #6: The 1 clue in the bottom right can now be resolved, and we can use some loop logic to draw a bunch of additional strands.
  7. #7: Finally, there's only one way to satisfy the remaining 3 and 1 clues, and the rest of the loop can be drawn from there.
