Seems a bit quiet, here's something that may amuse those of you who've been around for a while.

pm me the 2 part answer if you like and I'll post who got it first, might be a little tricky but we'll see...

Title: Snail Trail 9, or A Novel Idea

A) I am white's first move in the game of kings, I have how many choices?

B) Number of ways of winning 0s and Xs

C) "As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with seven wives. Every wife had seven sack's, every sack had seven cats, every cat had seven kitts. Kitts, cats, sacks, wives, how many were going to St. Ives?"

D) How many rings not ownt by elves?

U = (CD) + (AB)

U = The answer

Please use BODMAS, also spell your answer, for example 2 would become two. And lastly good luck!

Very Happy Are there any hints? Like, is the method only really contained in a couple of the lines or something? Oooh... I know, I know... the answer's "Owen's buggered off". Smile

My answers are on their way to you. It does give me quite a good feeling knowing that I've solved something that so closely resembles 1.48. I have a feeling that's the nearest I'm ever going to get though.
