Google's Puzzle ChallengesNot sure if any of you followed the Da Vince Code Quest thing which Google ran last month. Now, Google has Puzzlemaster WeiHwa posting a challenge question each day (you have to use the 'Personalised' Google Home Page). I'll post them here, and you guys can solve them. #2 20060528 22:44:18

Re: Google's Puzzle ChallengesJune 2nd, 2006: If a tree falls in the woods because of a wound, then what little object will not hear the sound? Answer: a deaf leaf. #6 20060604 10:43:35

Re: Google's Puzzle ChallengesI don't know the answers [ooh, but I've found that I can check them and get back a 'wrong' or 'right'], but that sounds right, Rod [and actually, yes it is]. Good job! #8 20060604 16:42:00

Re: Google's Puzzle ChallengesHi all, A disgustingly dirty sticker  A siesta for weirdos  A friendly rejection  Lists of all sorts of animals to be eaten  An unrefined crucifix  A type of bar bet, maybe?  Makes a news agency irrelevant  Stamps that someone refuses to return  Makes contact with feminine hygiene products  A price reduction given only to certain noblemen  Newer style of patio furniture  EDIT: DONE! // c0de Last edited by c0de (20060606 04:53:40) #10 20060606 08:22:11

Re: Google's Puzzle ChallengesJune 9th, 2006: The Google US Puzzle Championship is next Saturday, June 16th. It's used to select the US Puzzle Team, but puzzlelovers of all sorts should find something interesting in the puzzles. Let's have a big "G" (for Google): #15 20060610 19:45:22

Re: Google's Puzzle ChallengesJune 15th, 2006: It's hard not to be tempted by parody. It will probably be a while until we can actually get online collaboration, but I was able to come up with some interesting variants of Minesweeper. You can try them out (as well as the standard game) this week: #17 20060625 09:18:12
Re: Google's Puzzle ChallengesJune 23rd, 2006: Three weeks ago I was playing in The Game. One particular challenge was a timed maze (written by Stanford students Rachel Weinstein and Frank Losasso) that we had to play on a dance pad. It took my team surprisingly long, probably because we hadn't slept for 20 hours and we had failed to notice an important rule...
