Puzzzzzzzle Challenge!

For all you puzzle people, I scanned this one just for you! I’ll mail a Booooooom Sticker/Button prize pack to the first 3 people to solve it. Take a photo or scan in the sheet of paper you use to work out your answer (as proof you did it) and email me the correct answer.

If you know the answer please don’t ruin the fun for everyone else! You are welcome to voice your frustration in the comments though! This puzzle took me roughly an hour to solve. Good luck.

  • lexi

    can you post the answer here? i’m really curious what the rest is, i’m was so close but i didn’t figure it out still.

  • This is awesome, I love stuff like this! After work I’ma have to take a crack at this!

  • Neat puzzle, figured it out in about 15 minutes except for the solution! I was using the decoded words instead of the actual words (I don’t think that will give anything away). Thanks for the brain challenge on this rainy day.

  • a.e.

    That seem to me to be rediculously dificult.
    Good thing I cheated. :)

  • Stan

    Nice, saw this puzzle before going out this morning, had a go when I got back. Had the same problem as Karen but figured it out eventually :)

  • I did it without cheating!
    Shame I have no proof.

  • steve

    i started translating into ms word so i could color code my translations, based on which colors i thought i figured out the rules for. i dont think karens and stans comments ruined anything but do make me think im just going off in the wrong direction now, lol.

    • Stan

      Steve: just carry on translating until you get all the words and it’ll make sense!

      • steve

        ah yep, it did :) just had me overthinking it for a moment was all.

  • MR.

    i feel so retarded. i looked at it for 5 minutes and still cant get anywhere with it.

  • a little hint to get your started:

    whirred = word

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December

december-600

Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
