 I wrote a tcl script to solve it for me: What is tcl? Congrats Lou! I s’pose using coding to solve it is difficult enough. And congrats hok for the sudoku :D Sorry guys, no puzzle tonight. But two tomorrow. Puzzle 41: What comes fourth in this sequence of words? Man, Protocol, Element, ? Puzzle 42: What comes fourth in this sequence? D, FFF, HHH, ? You will not get the point for either puzzles unless you give a reason why. The answer to puzzle 42 is JJJ because the pattern goes like this D, FFF, HHH and F is three letters from D and H is three from F I know this sounds stupid but that`s the best answer i could come up with, 41: Undulus Words that only use 1 vowel? 42: XXX Something something pattern on a Dvorak keyboard 41: (The Third) Man, (The Fourth) Protocol, (The Fifth) Element, (The Sixth) Sense. 42: It may be that the letter is progressed by two and the number of times it appears is equal to the number of straight lines in the letter’s symbol. But then it would depend on the font whether it’s J or JJ. I suppose in this font it would be JJ. It could also be progressing across the keyboard by 1 then 2 then 3, making it LL.

You have both correct, well done! JJ was the correct answer for 42.

Lol fail, and that doesn’t explain why there’s only 1 D. Puzzle 43: Complete both puzzles for a point. 1) Hidden in the grid below are eight, 7-letter words. Each word begins with the central R and you can move one letter in any direction to the next letter. All of the other letters are used exactly once each. What are the words? 2) Place letters in the white shapes in the grid below so that each of the following words can be read horizontally, vertically or diagonally: MERCURY VENUS EARTH MARS SATURN URANUS NEPTUNE PLUTO Only time for one today. RAINBOW REFEREE REVENGE RESTORE RUBBISH ROASTED RUNNING RETREAT Yup, half a point to both of you two! Puzzle 44: How many squares, of any size, can you find on this chess board which do not contain a Rook? 129. Originally posted by Bluji:129.

Originally posted by NinjaMaster131:128 That is correct. Again, no puzzle today but two puzzles tomorrow :P Puzzle 45: Hidden in the grid below are 6 hidden animals, once you have crossed of the hidden animals, you should be left with seven letters, which spell another animal. The letters are hidden in sequence using the move of a chess knight. For example, if the first letter of one of the animals was the top-right F, then the second letter could only be either F or A. Puzzle 46: Fill the thermometers with mercury, such that the numbers outside the grid indicate how many cells in each row and column contain mercury. Mercury always starts filling from the bottom of a thermometer and not every thermometer has to contain mercury. 45: GIRAFFE ELEPHANT LEOPARD ANTELOPE GOAT KANGAROO HAMSTER http://i.imgur.com/eETa2ue.png I may have miscounted.
