They are also all films in which Robert De Niro starred.

That is correct; films Robert De Niro has been in. Finally! :D

Next puzzle coming in a couple/few hours :D

I think we’re both going to split the point again. I didn’t even consider using 0.

That’s also correct but race got their first. I never thought that you could do it like that :P Probably should’ve said that he sells at least one each day.

You have to look for a general principle (one that can be applied to all examples). No, there is no significance to the homophone – it is certainly coincidence.

December 1st is correct… but why?

I’m still undecided whether to give hok0003 the whole point or a half without explanation :P


Puzzle 8:

 
Flag Post

Taking a punt at 18.

hok should get the whole point becuase you never asked for why in the post where the riddle was/is.

I didn’t work for long at this, but I’m winging the bat with 120. A minute or two should get the job done … maybe.

I think there’s only 8.
You can either have

RRRRGGGG
RRRGGGRG
RRRGGRGG
RRGGRRGG
RRGGGRRG
RRGGRGRG
RRGRGGRG
RGRGRGRG

and all other combinations are either rotations or reflections of these.

8 is correct! And I’ve decided to give hok the point as long as anyone can say why it’s December 1st.

RRRGRGGG.

Do we get points for saying why, or just hok? Because I sense a conflict of interest.

Wowzers. I was counting days between them in different year, looking at holidays, and doing some wacky number nonsense to that. Sucks to suck.
