Hey mike, I don't see that puzzle in the KickStarter collection, and the DragonFjord inventory is low. Do you have to know somebody? Do you know somebody?

i'd like you to buy this and explain it to me, because from that picture i ain't getting it

There are two open spaces. Every day you need to arrange the pieces so that the two open spaces reveal the current month and date.

I thought it would be a good puzzle to try and figure out from the photo how the months and dates are arranged underneath, but the two which are visible suggest that they are simply in order, with months on the first two rows and numbers 1-31 below.

Given that there is a solution for each month and date combination, it seems very unlikely that there would be a unique solution for each combination. Have you tried finding an alternate solution for a date?

mk  ·  189 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I haven't tried an alternate solution. I will. Oct 3 was very difficult.

This is a good question for mike. I recall that he said an early prototype had a date without a solution.

Does your Oct 3 solution look like this?

mk  ·  189 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Well done, but nope! Also, it's Norwegian.

Okt 3 has more than one solution.

Here's another one.

I hate these things.

I am having a heck of a time with Okt 6. Still unsolved.
