    Think of the squares as being either on an x or a + sign (excluding the center). Regardless of the number of missing squares, an even number of moves always keeps you on the same x or + as before, where an odd number moves you from one to the other.

    While he cannot tell which space you are in, he can tell which group to move to; then removes a square from the other group and continues. Eventually, you are forced to move to a group with only one remaining member.

    There`s a subliminal message at 1.03 mins! Flashes the smiley face card in the centre of the screen. Just after he says "And here we go again" after removing the house. :O

    For anyone that says he took the card you were on, can you explain how you got to the square you ended up on? This is simple math. You can`t be on the squares he takes away if you follow the instructions.

    So demonstrating how you got there will show you where you messed up.

    "He took my house when I was on there. "

    You can`t move seven times from one of those two squares and end up on the house. At least no way I can think of. How did you?

    HG: Rewatched, made a mistake. Silly me.
    Lesson learned: Don`t do muttiple things at the same time while the instructions are playing.

    But did end on Q. Twice.

    The synopsis at the end is pretty harsh, but the overall message is correct. If you don`t end up on the smiley face, you`ve done something wrong.

    he only states 3 rules 1, you move vertically or horizontaly, you can land on any symbol a multiple of times and 3 dont move diagonally he dos not state how many symbols you move by in one single move.. he does suggest it by body language by only moving his hand by one note/ symbol so there is no `doing it wrong` only the fact that the people that got different answers are less easily suggested by body language and subliminal means

    jamie76: where did you end up after each move? (Knowing this, we`ll be able to tell where you went wrong. Nobody is saying you`re cheating, just that you`re not following the instructions.)

    Richstickman: So after the first move, where you only move one, and he says you will be on one of two squares, doesn`t that imply that you only move one square at at time?

    Yes, if you don`t end up on the smiley, you`ve done it wrong.

    Again, if you think it`s wrong, please post where you land after each step to demonstrate you`ve done it wrong.

    I`m guessing I`ll hear crickets after this post.

    So I guess there needs to be another rule which is, whereas you can visit a square that you have visited before, you cannot visit a square that no longer has a postit on it. Also, those aren`t squares.

    Haha that was funny to me. In the very beginning I started trying to land on that space, I picked it before he even explained what he was doing. I didn`t actually use my finger as instructed however, and managed to screw it up lol. So even though I didn`t follow the rules, he still predicted the one I`d actually chosen haha.

    Richstickman: So after the first move, where you only move one, and he says you will be on one of two squares, doesn`t that imply that you only move one square at at time? imply yes but is that a solid rule? implication is not a solid statment of what to do but still a suggestion.. you can imply someting but it still be wrong.. eg you can imply that somone has done a crime but that is not enough to try them.. iu still only see 3 solid rules which he vocally transmits and moving one symbol at a time is not one of them!

    I`went wrong` by shifting 2 symbols in one move and then for the rest of it alternateing between moving 1 and 2 symbols in one `move` for the rest of the test. the test is to see how predictable you are. if you get the result you are predictable if you get anything else you are less pridictable... i am less pridictable..

    @Smutleybutt You clearly Failed on the instructions

    Smoothjc1 Really? Those that are highlighted just show where you will END UP. Not how to move. Please go read the instructions again, or try the video AGAIN.

    Where is the fail stamp? On your forehead.

    i simply picked the card i thought it would be. Needless to say because i didn`t follow the instructions to fall into the mathematical formula, they were not able to pick the card that i selected.

    Funny how certain people (Smutleybutt)can call other people idiots and not have their comments taken away but call them a moron and have your comments taken, please DON`T tell me where to move because I`m NOT going to make the same moves as OR anyone else, IF I can make any move BUT Diagonally I did it correctly. NO matter what you say IDIOT.

    D) I have not once called you a name, but you digress into name calling at the posting of a pic from someone else or a video that you can`t grasp the instructions for. Neither of which I am the OP or author for. You may want to stop because it makes you look unintelligent and childish.

    D) Don`t kill the messenger because you don`t like the message. Is something this simple worth all the anger and acting out? What is really the issue?

    E) I really shouldn`t even try to explain this all to you, nor should I have to, but you seem desperate for some type of closure so what do you really want? Me to admit I am an idiot? A moron? Hey I am whatever you say I am. I was just trying to help.

    P.S. If a mod deleted your comment I am willing to bet you said worse than `Moron` in it.

    B) The rules I am showing you are not `my` rules but the rules of the guy who made the video. You move one box at a time every time he says a number. You can move up, down or sideways, just not diagonally. If you follow `HIS` rules you have to end up with his answer. If you did something other than what he states to do, which is your perogative, you will not get the predicted answer. Simple, right? Again these are his rules and his intructions, not mine.

    C) It is a mathematical problem. If you follow `his` instructions it will come out as he predicts because he made the equation.

    Smoothjc1 man you have some anger issues dude. Chill out and think about it:

    A) I didn`t make the photo explanation that seems to be irking you so badly. I just posted what ticketfan had linked earlier, look about 13 posts down below mine. I thought it might help the people not `getting` the instructions and not getting the proper ending, that this man wanted you to get, to see it. So I wasn`t calling anyone an idiot. Especially not you. Who could possibly think you are an idiot? Unfathomable.

    Smutleybutt I have anger issues ? Not 8 posts in and YOU posted a pic calling everyone idiots for not picking the rectangles that YOU picked ( any third grader knows the difference between squares and rectangles ) I will say it slowly so you understand,
    NOT .... EVERYONE .... WILL .... PICK .... YOUR .... SPOTS ....
    YOU need to chill out, I am just fine, generally I-AM-B is a great place to come and see stuff,( better in my words ) It`s people like YOU calling other people names to start with, and please don`t say YOU didn`t call anyone an idiot, if post a pic with stupid and idiot in it YOU all calling people that name. By the way it looks like I`m not the only that`s NOT predictable. If YOU post anything after this you will just look like a troll. Have a good day, May we never cross paths here again.

    I changed my mind. You are an idiot and a moron.

    If you had advanced beyond 3rd grade math you might rethink that statement about the difference between Squares and rectangles.

    Yes,a square is a special type of rectangle.

    Please remember that all squares are retangle but all rectangles are not squares

    Maybe the 3rd grade education explains your grammar also.

    Maybe that explains why you can`t grasp a simple concept. Did you even read my reply?

    Also learn to count. The pic I posted (WHICH I DIDN`T MAKE) is the 28th comment.

    If you are having trouble comprehending even something that simple, please look to the bottom of the page you will see `Page: 1 2` click the `2` and you will see another whole page of comments. Then note the times of the comments then count from the first one to my pic, taa daa 28! You can do it! Just try!
