www.google.com/ig

It is (at the moment) May 26th and it's not out yet!

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

youre right...
but maybe it will take a while to update itself

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

More likely they are running to US time.

Adrian Vergara [PersonRank 1]

13 years ago #

But what time is it in US time?

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

I am not sure (obviously there are quite a few US times).

But the Da Vinci's always came out late ish in the day (about 5 or 6 PM for GMT+1).

Ok, thanks a lot for that, great help. I am totally happy and cannot wait for the mental challenges in the "Wei-Hwa Puzzle Challenges" on Google.

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Grrr. It is still not up.

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

By the way anyone care to predict the format for these?

Will they be ultraglossy and flash based like the da vinci quest or something a little more amateurish?

Niraj Sanghvi [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

I would like more amateurish...and also more difficult!

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Yes me too!

I would also like it to be here!

Puzzles were always posted at 1pm EDT US time. Right now it is 12:22 EDT, so 40 more minutes ish. I bet they'll keep that tradition.

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Thanks very much for that. Everyone get ready for the next hour in which ever time zone you are in.

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

How much do you bet?

ChocolateyKisses [PersonRank 1]

13 years ago #

Apparently not... hmmm... come on google!

When does the 26th begin in Wei-Hwa's World?

Anybody have a clue as to when these "Puzzle Challenges" will start?

Niraj Sanghvi [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Seems like they are waiting for the last possible minute that still counts as the 26th somewhere :)

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Ok. Maybe this IS the puzzle!

Alternatively I guess it will be released at 20.00 GMT.

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

It is here... and it is tricky!

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Yikes has anyone done it yet?!

Mrrix32 [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Are they all the same with 3,3,8 and 8?
I'm stuck
Can get 25, but no closer

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Yes mine is that too. The target is 24 on mine I presume everyone is the same.

If there is no solution I will go insane.

Mrrix32 [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

When I first looked at it I thought it would be easy. Now i've spent nearly 20 min on it I changed my mind. Can't any one do it?

Pau Tomàs [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

I can get 24,33333333333333333 (infinite) but it's not accepted :(

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Do you think that you are allowed to use 38 and 83 and 88 etc. (assuming you have the relevant numbers spare) ?

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

its kinda tricky..
damn it!
(unlike Davinci Code quests)

Tony Griswold [PersonRank 1]

13 years ago #

I've got it solved...should I post the solution or do people want to figure it out?

Pau Tomàs [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Tony, I prefer if you don't post the solution here... better if you open another post so people can look there. Thanks :)

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

i agree...!

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

this post gonna be like the post:"Google's Da Vinci Code Quest Started"?!
with 7869550 posts in it?!

Tony Griswold [PersonRank 1]

13 years ago #

no problem – new, clearly named thread with the solution is posted for those who want it

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Excellent Tony. But I am not looking just yet.

Mrrix32 [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

I was expecting mor than that once you had the right answer, like on the da vinci ones it saidf how many you had done, this just says Correct

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

how come this one doesnt work?
8*3+3-3?!
cause:
8*3=24
+
3=27
-3=24

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

David: Wrong numbers.

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #

Mrrix32 [PersonRank 10]

Haochi [PersonRank 10]

Sam Davyson [PersonRank 10]

13 years ago #
