This puzzle was an experiment.

I wanted to find out how hard it is when people have to solve language based puzzles in a foreign language. It turned out to be very hard. Much harder than I had expected beforehand. Now I understand why. My apologies to all the puzzlers having a go at an unfair task.

Another unfortunate decision was to make the puzzles sequential while it turned out that the first few puzzles were not the easiest ones. That is my fault entirely. I tried to leverage this problem by explaining the first three puzzles in the forum, but that was not the best solution.

Now I have opened up the whole contest in a non-sequential manner, except the very first and very last puzzle. Maybe that opens up a better experience for new puzzlers and might even give people who gave up in the first try an opportunity to retry this contest.
