The team name proved to be something of a misnomer as Team Puzzlinactivity were too busy watching in awe as SparkPlug, aki, Stretham and xyphic flexed their puzzling muscles for our benefit - all kudos to these guys for improving on the team name's finish of 110th place last year! Thumbs up

But it was great to have answered all 25 of the puzzles (as well as the first step of the final meta before it was over). Thanks for the appreciation Embarassed

I bet my solution diagram for 5.4 was prettier than yours Razz

Seriously though those puzzles were incredibly difficult and nothing like what we're used to, I was very impressed with how quickly you seemed to solve them. Although we got 24 in the end a few were guesses based on the meta and for some of the toughest we needed their hints to get us going. Next year we'll have to see if we can keep up with you. Well done Thumbs up

Damn I never thought of sugarlumps Mad Embarassed

I spent most of the time whinging that I wasn't able to get into school to use the cubes that we have there, I did briefly get out the jigsaw and some wood, but only to decide it would take forever to make sufficient cubes. Then I started on the isometric paper, with the annoying letters that had rotational symmery I had 10+ paint windows open at some points to cover all the possibilities.



And in the end I still had to do it in two parts.

I'm still waiting for you to crack the case of the mystery "sugar cube sculpture smasher" (though I am fairly certain it was my 4 year old).
