A bit early today.

Puzzle 58:

Complete both these puzzles for one point.

1) By changing the third letter of each of the words below, can you make another valid word? You have to change each word such that the third letters will reveal a ten letter word when read downwards. Therefore, what now reads KRZSAPROKD will be a real word.

BAKE
CURE
MAZE
PEST
NEAT
PORT
FOOD
POKE
SODA

2) Below is a grid which should contain boy’s names. The missing letters for a particular column are listed at the top of that column. ‘Drop’ the missing letters in and complete the grid.

I’ve never heard of a Yardley before

Also you’re missing a word between NEAT and PORT according to your jibberish

I really have no idea for either….although, i’d have to say, the first letter in #1 would probably have to be an s….

And, funiax, NEBT, isn’t a word.

Even without it, I think I can guess the word is strawberry.

Puzzle 59:

This is a calcuduko. Your task is to complete the grid such that every row and column contains the numbers 1-8, whilst at the same time making sure the cage clues are satisfied. Do this for a point.

Puzzle 60:

You have to complete the grid such that every row and column contains the numbers 1 to 7. Each row and column contains each number only once. However, you have to follow the rules around the outside, which tell you how many skyscrapers you can see. You can’t see a shorter skyscraper behind a taller one.

Puzzle 61:

What comes fourth in this sequence?

5 = IV, 6 = IX, 7 = V, 8 = ?

 
Flag Post

X

 
Flag Post

since 5 = IV while 7 = V (deducting the I), I’m guessing since 6 = IX, 8 must = X (assuming the I is removed like it is with 5 & 7)

Edit: damn it Maist for ninjaing me!

 
Flag Post

8 is not x though.

I

Correct… but why?

Each of the answers represents the Roman numbers found as letters within the spelled-out versions of each number.

(EDIT: That explanation sounded clearer in my head.)

Yeah, that’s good enough.

 
Flag Post

If I may give another reasonable explanation, 5-1=IV, (4) 6+3=IX, (9) 7-2=V, (5) so assuming that the addition of 3 would go down to the addition of 2, 8+2=X. (10)
