    My guess is that you spin the cards really fast and they blur into a word xD

    Honestly I'd fail at any of these puzzles.......

    edit: i mean i was close than I thought but still way off

    I would be interested in seeing a live puzzle competition, or a group of puzzle solvers working out a puzzle in "real-time" on this channel. I would find this interesting, since you continue to mention these types of competitions/events

    • FLEB
      FLEB 1 month ago

      The cylinder puzzle by Strijbos? It's a great puzzle, but I've heard from someone close to him that he doesn't appreciate having his puzzles shown (he likes to keep the solutions secret). Out of respect for the designer, I've stopped showing his puzzles. I did show one of his puzzles earlier, before I learned this, which is "The Lotus Box". He's a great designer!


    • Bearzy55
      Bearzy55 1 month ago

      I believe this person's comment is referring to a top "related video" of "The Mysterious Cylinder Puzzle". This puzzle was invented by Wil Strijbos of The Netherlands apparently.

    I'd love to hear some of your team's false paths you went down during those 17 minutes.
    What were the ideas that lead you down the wrong way that chewed up alot of time?

    • FLEB
      FLEB 2 months ago

      One of the problems we had is that it's actually difficult to put the cards in the right order! So we had to rearrange the cards after we had put them all into the box, which is no easy task!

      We figured out the "aha" pretty quickly, so we didn't go down too many false paths with this one. Now the "Lump of Coal", that's a puzzle that we completely flubbed as a team!

  • StevieSenpai
    StevieSenpai 2 months ago

    I'd got three things to say.
    Number 1. 17 minutes? Anyone that's watched Bambi would have guessed right away, I did the moment I saw you crank the box.
    Number 2. How in the hell did these people get permission to use pictures from the Bambi movie? From what I know, anything related to Disney has a life-time copyright policy and they will fuck you up the ass so hard for lawsuits it's not even funny.
    Number 3. I lied about the first thing I said, but I did guess once I saw you crank it, it made me whistle.

    • FLEB
      FLEB 2 months ago

      I believe that this is covered under fair use. It uses a small portion of the source material, advances the market of the original material, is barely used in any commercial way (the puzzle is not for sale), and the work is clearly transformative. Under those conditions, I doubt Disney would bring a lawsuit, as it's just not worth their time. Now if they were selling the puzzle as a standalone product, that's another story, but for a one-shot puzzle event, I don't think they care.


  • Jordan Feingold-Link
    Jordan Feingold-Link 2 months ago

    What a GREAT puzzle! I love that the process of getting from the beginning to the solution had that wonderful moment of realization.

    I was wondering if you could recommend some websites to get more involved with the puzzle scene. I would love to try my hand at a competition, or at least meet up with other puzzler oriented folks.

    • Jordan Feingold-Link
      Jordan Feingold-Link 2 months ago

      FLEB that's really excellent. I appreciate it!

      I have a lot of twisty puzzle experience, and feel pretty solid up to Thursday NYT crosswords. It feels good to broaden my scope.

      I would love to see how your team would destroy an Escape room. The puzzles aren't as high quality as the ones you share on your channel, but they are good fun nonetheless!


    • FLEB
      FLEB 2 months ago

      Sure! I'm going to quote another response I posted to a similar question on this video, if that's all right. They were asking about beginning puzzlehunts and how to get good at puzzles.

      "There's a lot of free puzzle hunts available! There's a whole archive of BAPHL, DASH, and Puzzled Pint, which are all good beginner hunts. Panda Magazine costs money, but is a good example of a slightly harder hunt (and the Puzzle Boat competitions are great for getting a broad feel for puzzlehunt puzzles). And the archive for Mystery Hunt, which is much harder (but also free!), goes back to the beginning.

      It's also good to practice logic puzzles and common puzzle types like cryptograms and crosswords. GMPuzzles is a great source of logic puzzle. There's a free Wall Street Journal crossword contest every week, which has a small puzzle embedded inside. Hopefully this is enough to get you started!"


  • angel gomez

    Would trying to solve any of "Masquerade" by Kit Williams be to difficult, and to an extension: not a good video? I'd be very curious to see what you think Fleb.

    • FLEB
      FLEB 2 months ago

      I've actually never tried "Masquerade", but my impression is that it was written before people really figured out how to write puzzlehunt puzzles and so it feels a bit dated. I have thought about solving puzzles from "The Maze of Games" on video, as it's a spiritual successor in a lot of ways and I've really enjoyed it!

    • FLEB
      FLEB 2 months ago

      I actually live in Boston!

      Though, there are a number of puzzle competitions that run in simultaneous cities, which you could try! I run Puzzled Pint in Boston, but the Puzzled Pint in Chicago is also good, and run by good people! There's also DASH, which is a strange mashup of east-coast and west-coast style puzzlehunts.

    Hey FLEB. I was wondering how one would acquire the kind of puzzle experience and specialized knowledge about puzzles that it would take to be a contender in one of these competitions. I consider myself pretty dang good at puzzles (compared to most people), but after going through a bunch of puzzle hunt puzzle examples, I realized I still have no idea what I'm doing. Could you maybe recommend some good resources for that kind of thing? I love your videos by the way.

      You can notice the gaps first, and you might guess they correspond to letters. One of our teammates actually did that!

      You don't necessarily need to get the intermediate step "DOTGAPS", but I would be very surprised if any team at the competition ended up skipping that step, as it's pretty crucial to this puzzle.

      That being said, our team did skip most of a puzzle later on in the competition by figuring out what the first step was going to point to. So it's possible!


    • cchannahboo
      cchannahboo 2 months ago

      I don't think you understand what I'm trying to say. I know you need to assemble it in order, but it's possible you notice the gaps without having to see the message about the gaps, right?

      The main problem would be the timing of the different teams. Teams will reach puzzles at different points.

    This one is quite simple compared to the one from The Famine Games, but I'm still amazed that your team solved it really that fast!

      FLEB Woo! So excited for another competition puzzle!

      We always share the puzzles throughout the team. Nobody "owns" them, but we try to keep track of them as they move around.

      The reason I've shown so few is that physical puzzles from puzzlehunt competitions are fairly rare! In this year's Mystery Hunt, which had 100+ puzzles, 1-2 were physical in nature. I'm covering another puzzle from the Famine Games tomorrow, though!

      FLEB if you do these puzzle hunts with a large team of people how is it that you get to keep the puzzle? Or is that why you only have 2 of them from that hunt? Because you guys divide them amongst you? Sorry for the many questions I'm just curious. Seems like deciding who gets to keep what between die hard puzzle fans would be a difficult puzzle to solve in and of itself haha.

      Ah, right! It's the Xbox one (I forgot that you had two of them). Really looking forward for other puzzles from the competitions though.

      Which one, the Xbox puzzle or the Lump of Coal? Lump of Coal is probably about the same difficulty, the Xbox one was a bit harder. I have a few other puzzles from that competition, maybe I'll get a chance to show them later...

      FLEB I don't see anything wrong with it, you at least don't sound stilted, and I would even prefer that to vocalized pauses or extra cuts.


    • FLEB
      FLEB 2 months ago

      I'll try to improve that! I script most of what I say, because when talking about puzzles, you often have to be very precise.

      Thanks! I got some comments that said the intro was long, and I agreed. Generally, if something changes in the overall structure, it's because commenters suggested a better way to do it!

    Hey Fleb. About 7 years ago I think I bought a "Tetris Cube" Puzzle. I took it apart and have never been able to put it back together again. I don't want to cheat and youtube a solution. But could you maybe do a video on it? Not necessarily solving it, but how it works and why it works?

    • FLEB

      Can you message me a picture of the puzzle?
