I actually do the opposite for the 13 game (I always try to give the simplest answer).

About the number splitting thing, I believe a master Jedi such as Yoda ;-) would have made,

at the very least, a great Sumurai.

2+ 4*4 -1 - 4 =13

So, bobbym, if you have an Android, there is a new Mode Arena that you could like. I would like to see how you fare against games that I (or Jess Chua, a player that may be better than me at my own game) solved and uploaded.

(English is actually my third language, so the pain was possibly greater than "intended").

I see your point now about having seen "less understandable" puzzles.

Note that I sometimes do this kind of things too (making all sorts of factual but

arguably pointless connections between this and that) but that puzzle is a masterpiece.

I read all the thread (except the hidden parts). Some bits were quite funny :-d

My take:

1) This chain is not really for puzzles that seem so hard :-) so when I said, "any puzzle will do", it should not be believed

2) The warning message accompanying the puzzle is just too convincing. I'm already late for too many things and I don't

really feel like coding to solve the puzzle [I have saved the pdf though. I may try to do it manually some day]

The cool thing with the themed version is that it gives an additional tiny bit of mathematics culture/trivia to the people who try to solve it.

The less cool thing is that it requires more time to build, compared to the simpler puzzles.

(You give me more work though because I have to build another puzzle to make up for the one you didn't provide :-P)

2+4+3+6-2=13

Answer to previous

Pascal-themed puzzle

My numbers are between 1 and 99

Glued together, they give 919236295

To get the sum of my numbers, you have to get a list of the first prime numbers

and retrieve the position occupied by the prime number obtained by dividing Pascal birthyear by 3.

(phew, I'm not even sure this is understandable :-D)

Constraints/Hints

#1 One of my numbers is the monthday of Pascal's birth and death

You're right anonimnystefy

but what he did is a cool variant. I enjoyed solving it.

If there is no other answer, I will add my own puzzle later today.

24336

2*4 -(3/3) + 6 = 13

24310

2+4-(3-10) = 13

24284

(2/4)*2 + 8 + 4 = 13

Answer to previous: 2 3 93 1 89 7

My numbers are between 1 and 99.

Glued together, they give the sequence 66267115

Their sum is 151

Constraints/Hints:

#1 Two of my numbers can be expressed as the sum of two of my other numbers
