Female 3
"-" wont work for me on number 16 and i can not figure out how to get to that "character map" HELP!!!!! PLEASE!!!
Female 26
The reason it don`t work when you type in thepassword is because you pressed enter on the keyboard. You have to press Enter beside the insertion box thingy.
Male 1
71 in the character map is not worthless. In fact, if you look in the right spot, 71 is the number you need, which happens to be "-". Anyone who counted 13 spaces over just got lucky.
Female 1
whats number 11
Female 40
mine wont work- i typed in thepassword for #1 but it wont go to the next 1......am i right? )-|
Female 1
what is # 11? sry im a stupid

Female 43
All that for a dash!! That was so dumb!!! Plus level 17 is under construction, what a waste of time!!!
Male 1,674
i really would love to know what the explanation to number 16 is.
Male 1
can some one help me on 15 please I don`t get it
Female 33
holy...omg, how can the answer be..f>-(
Female 2
Thank you Tide, how annoying tho, to get that far and find it under construction.
Male 16
the answer is "-" on the character map you go over 13 spaces and it will take you to the "-" on there. The 71 is absolutely worthless =). Level 17 is under construction though
Female 2
I have tried everything I can think of to do with the map and the character map, now I am really stuck. Please someone can I have a clue or even better.....the answer.
Female 23
how did yall get that. cant yall just say the answer its not like any of us havent given anybody else answers
Female 23
what is the answer to 16. mine is not working
Female 17
Ok I got it

It is so stupid -

Female 2
Female 4
wat is it?
Male 16
i figured it out =)
Female 17
Is there a difference between european computers than US computers.
Female 17
ditto
Male 16
all the numbers on the character cube are 4 numbers long. there is no 013 from what i see. i go over 13 but there is no 71. Maybe im just completely missing something?
Female 17
I have no idea what you mean when you say look for 013. Where. I cant find it anywhere.
Male 16
eh, the thing is, when i open my character cube, it crashes right after. So i cant use it, i think i downloaded a virus somewhere. This is happening with other applications on my computer. Im trying to find out what the virus is. =\
Female 2
As I said, go to the character map and look for 013 and then go UP to 071, the result is the answer.

Male 16
well Twinkle if you figured it out how about a little help? like the answer? :P
Female 2
Done it. You need to use a character map with at least 71 characters. Coordinates across and then up.

Thanks to tips on the Motley Fool UK riddles board for the right angle to pursue.

Female 33
but if so then why would he say that we might need to use the character map to figure this out..cause the whole "superman, batman, peter..." + map..is like..almost the whole riddle, we have to use the character map somehow
Female 33
yeah me and my brother looked at the page for sooo long and have been noticing everything that you guys are talking about...and yeah i was thinking the answer mightve had something to do with the map...maybe one of the towns that labeled
Male 16
from how it looks, he didnt add anything to this map at all
Female 23
did he add all the crosses compared to the other map.
Male 16
The red arrow wasnt added to the map ether, the map has to have something to do with the riddle besides just for show though. So you are right about clues on the map, but what is it? If he wanted a map, he wouldnt of specifically chosen this one. He could of picked any other map of the world, but he chose this area of london. He could of simply used a picture of a actual paper map or something like the world.
Male 16
the blue has nothing to do with it i believe, they were already on the map. He didnt place that there, if you dont believe me here is the link to the original http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.srf?x=530500&y=181500&z=3&sv=St+Giles&st=3&tl=St+Giles,+Camden+[City/Town/Village]&searchp=newsearch.srf&mapp=newmap.srf
Female 23
i know
Male 16
that is very creative thinking but its hard to form a answer for the riddle with all of that =)
Female 23
in the 31 number in the map there looks like there is a rabbits head outlined in blue
Male 16
im not sure if we will ever know the answer to level 16. =)
Female 23
right above that one appears to be harry potters scar. its the blueish color and it is about 2-3 centimetersand its outlined in a little back box
Female 23
over on the right about two thirds of the way down is an upside down one. its like a blue box with the 1 upside down in it. and remember the riddle mentions 1 a coupld times
Female 23
what does the light blue 32,31, and 82, mean. they`re randomly put in the map
Female 23
i think i have an idea. think of the symbols for the characters.like lightening for harry potters scar. the s for superman and the bat for batman. havent figured out peter rabbit yet
Female 23
but what are we suppose to find on the character map
Male 16
well the riddle has something to do with your character cube on your computer i believe. Thats the conclusion everyone has come ot so far, the *characters + Map* which is the character map on your computer
Female 23
omg. look in the right hand corner at the little black cross. it is the only one bent at the top
Female 23
im not sure. we have so many assumptions and weird clues that none of them are making sense
what do u mean by character cube.thats not the answer if thats what u mean
Male 16
and why is it that the + symbol isnt perfectly straight? (But the other line in the symbol is perfectly straight? Maybe im just thinking to hard, maybe that is another character from the character map we are suppose to use on the answer) it almost looks like a religious cross
Female 23
if yall look up close to the right hand corner on level 16, there is a little red arrow pointing diagnolly to the right. cant figure out the purpose of that.
Male 16
hmm well too put into one makes 3. But who knows if that is even helpful or part of the riddle =\. Id try the character cube with 313 and 017 but im lazy right now.
Female 23
that too, but the one is the only one not spelled out and the sentence sounds funny with the 1 there. so we need to take that into consideration
Male 16
what i dont understand is at the bottom he says "These are *too* riddle put into one." why did he spell it *too* but not *two*
Female 33
yeah its confusing, he says,"you might need to use something on your start menu"... how do we use the character map??
Female 23
on level 16 thats what icant figure out. and i cant figure out what the names are for exceppt they are fiction so im trying to tie that in ther.
Female 2
does anyone know what what to open the file with to get the information needed
Female 23
for number 16 if u go to the start menu and click search. click files and folders.then type in cmap.u get two files but i cant figure it out from there. maybe yall can elaborate. help me out
Female 4
has anyone figured out 16??
Female 33
were trying to figure out number 16
Female 17
10-1231 12-mounteverest
Female 3
was the answer to number 12??
Female 3
help with number 10?
Female 3
was da second one??!!
Female 17
number 11 is 9 to the 9th power which it 387420489.
Female 1
help with number 11?
Female 1
maybe cmap just refers to character map?
Female 17
That totally sucks
Female 33
i was asking questions to Mark, but hes on vacation for ten days
Female 33
Female 14
Cmap could also mean, sea map, see map or nautical map. I have done all the word association and still can`t figure out what the answer could be.
Female 17
may cmap means for us to see map
Female 14
Okay, the other "clue", when you place the cursor over the map says "what does that file name mean?" The file name is "cmap". Why am I racking my brain over this?
Female 17
It does have to do with the character map because the clue has on one side batman, superman and harry potter who are all characters and then adds a map.
Female 17
Mark lives in Scotland or something. He has a blog.
Female 14
Okay, lookie here. We all know that there is a clue in the whole character map. The question is what does the 013 and 071 mean? I was hoping the answer was character map. Unfortunately, it`s not. I am going to work on this thing for about a hour then i`m done. Where is Mark by the way?
Female 33
arrrgghhh!!!!!!
Female 33
lol we`ll all try to ptich in too find the answer...i just cant figure it out!! :(
Female 8
i still dnt no it, its confusin, plz tell me if u no it plz
Male 1
has anyone figured out lvl 16 yet! its making my head hurt.
Female 33
that works too...omg this ones difficult
Male 3
*just did it again and its actually "!,q" *
Male 3
i hav windows 2000 so it might be a little different. i dnt think its fictional characters i just think its characters like symbols. wen ur at the character map, check advanced view. then in the "Go to Unicode" box type in 013 and hit enter and it will choose that character. then do the same with 071. i came out wit these characters
"1,q" hope im onto somthin here
Female 33
thats good, yeah i have the character map whatever stuff...but im thinking there has to be something to do with the (013,071)
Female 14
it`s not the answer but that`s my train of thought right now
Female 14
okay, i have not figured this one out but here is something i was thinking about. Fictional Character Map
Female 33
AH i cant do it!!!
Female 33
***no, were trying to figure it out
Female 33
no trying to figure it out :P
Female 102
any1 know 16 yet?
Female 33
:-(
Female 33
no nevermind
Female 33
omg wait!..lemme think for a sec i think i might have an idea!
Female 33
hmm
Female 17
i found this on another website. I still dont understand but maybe you can get the answer.-
no not at all i thought so and wasted an entire day at work!!! the arrow really is a distraction!

character maps can be found in your start menu- acessory menu and then in system tools look for character mapsand look for the co-ordinates on the character map

Female 33
oh god im so confused
Female 33
yeah maybe!
Female 17
i think they are all heroes of some sort - MAYBE. the 13,71 are coordinates that can be plotted on the streetmap.ok.uk.
Female 33
omg coordinates
thats what he was saying!!
Female 14
what is the meaning of 013 and 071? I can only think coordinates. the map is a nautical map. What do the names on the left have to do with all that?
Female 33
hmmmmm
Female 17
I think the arrow is pointing towards holborn- and the Emmeline Pankhurst statue or something. That is what I cant gather from the map.
Female 33
omg what IS number 16???
Female 33
la la la...
Female 33
holy shoot!! i havent even read the riddle for 16 and it looks hard
Female 33
lol ok
Female 14
until*

Female 14

387420489

Female 62
Female 1
The answer to 5 is 11. to get the answer you count the letters in the phrase T-H-E-A-L-P-H-A-B-E-T. because it says how many letters are in.... the alphabet. like the phrase not the actually alphabet. man you guys are morons
Female 14
yeah i figured out it is but it wouldnt let me enter it for awhile
Female 14
on level two is the letters ENT?
Female 6
For easy(ish) riddles there quite hard! But i get to level 6 and my computer crashes. GRRRR!!
Female 47

Female 47

Female 47
finished with help on the tree one
Female 47
i put in e for eight but it said my access has been denied. is this part of the thing?
Male 19

Female 15

Female 604

Female 604
if anyone cares, christ added on to Spanish Bombs
Male 346
that was good.
Male 19
check the title.... Easy(ish) Riddle... should have given that away!
Male 263
i never understood the "what`s the 4th line?" one
Male 84
Whee, I got it done. And it`s still under construction. This was easy. I`ve done way harder riddles, like Best Riddle.
Male 19
lookin` at your pic, fk, some one should have thought about the gene pool when they decided to have you!!!
Male 363
oh my god this was so dumb.
Male 951
More of this sickeningly stupid garbage. Why can`t everyone even thinking of making one just spontaneously combust and save the gene pool some wear-and-tear.
Female 496
ok, & on the 3rd one, they used the wrong kind of your.
Female 496
omg i had that second riddle when i was in second grade. wow.
Female 212

Male 19

Male 1,016

Female 75
Easy. A lot of NotPron playing got me trained to get through this very quickly!
Male 1,407
Ok got to level 10, actually completing each level...on my own. Haha level 9 was so easy.
Male 19
the answer to 4 is not 11!!!!!!!!!!! REJECT!!!

Male 404
2: Ent
3: Bob
4: 11
6: Frame
7: 111221
9: barkingupthewrongtree
Female 604
anyone who`s played spanish bombs, Christ added on.

there`s two new levels =)

Male 19
1 - there is 1, 1 (which makes line 2)
11 - there is 2, 1s (which makes line 3)
21 - there is 1, 2 and 11 (which makes line 4)
1211 - there is 1, 1 and 1, 2 and 2, 1s (so there u go!)
Female 5
ok then the 1211 is wrong aswell lol, this is just weird...
Female 5
1
11
21
1211

how is it 111221, cause theres 1 2 and then 3 1`s.. i`ve done this question like loads of times in maths... so thats just messed up

Male 32
the answer to #5 is really easy, its 11, thealphabet=11 letters
Female 107
I dont like these kind of games..
they make me think
Male 19
ONLY BY TYPING THE ANSWER TO NUMBER 9 IN ON LEVEL 6!!!! PROBABLY COZ U TRIED TO CHEAT BY GETTIN THE ANSWER OFF HERE!!!!
Female 290
went from 6 - 10 weird
Male 4
ok u idiots, the answer to 4 is 25, not 11. the password box seems to worlk rather like old sega games, u type the pass to any level and it takes you there, hence y 5 was missed out. the answer is 24, because you add up all the letters from the name (bob...b = 2 o = 15 b = 2...15 +2+2=19) its how many letters into the alphabet it is! the answer to 5 is a really easy too!
Male 19
luk at the pic at the buttom of the page.... its just a black sqaure so u need to select it 2 see it. hold the mouse over it... and voila!
Male 1,808
cant wait for the rest!
Male 122
Too short
Male 423
:-l
Male 19
Some of them are really easy, and a couple are quite challenging :)

If you accidently type the answer to another riddle it will jump you to the level after that one, so avoid typing random stuff in!

Work it out logically and u won`t skip levels :)

Male 1,061
quite good but hard
Male 1,061
after 6 skiped me to 10 which aint done yet
Male 332
mark, im the 1 u emailed saying i wuz the second 1 to complete it to level 10. and yes, i do want my name added and i did complete level 5 as well.
Male 19
I`m currently working on some more, so if u wanna be kept updated when news ones go up, please email me: [email protected]
Male 19
Not bad!!! I have to admit a couple of them where a bit hard! the `outside the box` one was kinda evil! hehe!
Female 4
I did 5 out of ten on my own not bad i think!!!!!!
Male 19
Oh and please don`t give all the answers out on here.. it spoils the fun... especially when some of them are wrong!
Male 19
*slight correction* Only two people....

(wups!)

Male 19
I can tell u now... there is a number five, but u got the answer to number 4 wrong (that is the answer to number 5 not 4, so u jumped to 6!)

So all you people who just went through all the numbers get what you deserve! Work it out proply!!!

Only to people mailed me to say they made it to 10 yet... well done you 2!

Female 4
i dont get number 2
wot is it!!!
Female 34
ok... get the level 6, and then it goes to level 10, underconstruction
Female 333
whoo finished it! only needed help on afew thanx guys.!
Female 4
OMG for some reason I jst skipped all of the level it went from level 5 2 9!!
Female 4
i dont get level 5 its stumped me tottally!!:-(
Male 329
anyone who actually wants to get all the levels done, the proper answer to number 4 is 25, to get jack`s age, you take the letter`s position in the alphabet A=1, B=2, etc... and you add them together, then you can go to level 5
Female 165
that was easy
Female 4
Hi I dont get the level with the damn box!? HELPPP!!! please:-(
Female 208
oh wow, it only had nine levels, and level 5 wasn`t even there.

Should I be proud that I got 6 out of the 8 without any help?

Female 226
NO, the WHOLE THING!!!
Male 923
LOL, FINE, I will say it right out. Yeesh, he is barking up the wrong tree..."barkingupthewrongtree" not the right tree, the WRONG tree, lol.
Female 2,084

Female 226

Female 226

Female 2,144
The wrong tree?
Female 2,084

Female 208
tee hee, I like the answer to #9
Female 2,144
Hmmm...I Still Dont Get It.
Male 923
Lol, it`s an old saying.
Female 2,084
of course we do!!!!!!!!
Male 923
Anyone who doesn`t want the answer to nine, don`t read this. Ok, what is he doing? He`s barking up what? A tree right. But not the right tree, so he is barking up the....
Female 2,144
Then what is it!?
Male 923
Anyone want the answer? Heh heh.
Female 2,084
Male 923
It`s not bark.
Male 923
