Closed. 5 solvers. Solution in the comments on the 2nd page. Thanks for playing and Happy New 2013!


  • No help of any kind, no hints, everyone is solving for themselves. If I catch you cheating/sharing answers/hints, you are going to my blacklist for good, and trust me, I always catch someone. Don't even ask questions as a joke... Nothing!

  • If you solve and get to the giveaway page, bump the thread, be nice.

  • Do not tell anyone what game is given. If they want to find out and enter, they should solve the puzzle.

I'll post the solution afterwards. Good luck.


You don't have to add me on Steam to solve the puzzle. Everything you need is already given.


ALSO, if you are an active member (100+ comments) for 6 or more months, but have 0 wins, you should check this out...

NB264 (1 year ago*)

Someone got to the 2nd step... Can they solve it before the time runs up?

1-st stage - easy 2nd - impossible for me, because i don't know english very well, because[2] i live in Lithuania. Thx for giveaway anyway ^_^

Found something but the most obvious thing doesn't seem to work.

Where were you? :) Everyone has solved it by now...

NB264

0 entries? 0 comments? Scared me for a bit. :)

skanda

Chour just told me that he solved the 5th question... He's almost in.

NB264

I got the 5th one as well but I'm nowhere near in.:)

skanda

(1 year ago)

This puzzle is like an argument with my girlfriend, I'm being challenged but I have nothing to go on :(

skanda (1 year ago*)

4/5, I'm sooo going to regret signing off once I wake up and see the solution/giveaway.

Batzn (1 year ago)

to not even getting to the puzzle is really frustrating, Roland Deschain wouldnt like this one

You have something against The Dark Tower?

NB264

(1 year ago)

let me rephrase that, Blaine wouldnt be pleased with this kind of riddle :P

Batzn

CopperUndies (1 year ago*)

2/5.
Jatan uberpuzzle took its toll.

Same here. I also got an idea for two others but it seems I can't find the exact answer. Unfortunately, I don't have time anymore... Damn, I wished you posted this puzzle during the day, not the night ;)

ZaknazaaR

NB264 (1 year ago*)

I'm off to sleep. No entries for now. 3 people (choir, skanda, bogysha), as far as I know, have 4/5. 13 players total.

If there's no entries till the end, we'll repeat this with 24 hours timer.

You can count me in the 4/5 group.

skanda (1 year ago)

I was so sure I knew what the topic of the third question was but the most obvious answer doesn't seem to be the correct one. <<

cams02 (1 year ago)

I don't usually do this, but I'm now thinking "Where's the puzzle???"

NB264 (1 year ago*)

Time is up! I'm not gonna explain the solution, but instead I've restarted the puzzle. It's almost the same but not quite!

So, if you solved some of it, you can use that knowledge to solve it again. If you had nothing, you start again but with more time. Anyway, do not discuss the puzzle, it's considered to be OPEN even if it closes with 0 entries!

Nice. Because between good sleep and good puzzle sometimes I had to choose sleep :)

chour

(1 year ago)

Is the giveaway game the same?

cams02

(1 year ago)

Could be. Could be not.

NB264

(1 year ago*)

skanda (1 year ago)

Heeeey! More questions? Without removing the tricky one?:(

6/7. <<

skanda

More time = more questions, different entrance.

Darkness001 (1 year ago)

hey! It's super super super super super hard ... I can't get it. I have checked using ctrl+u but really? i'm new to this and can't really get it! Just wondering if you could show us the answer about how to solve this puzzle after this is done. It would be pretty amazing if you did so! help me open my eyes wider, extend my knowledge ( eh? probably it's true that i still not have one :< Tch~) ! BOOKMARK this ! Thanks for making an awesome puzzle !

It's not that hard, 5 people already got to the third and final step.

NB264

(1 year ago)

can't find anything relate to your first hint to another hint :X that's the problem!

Darkness001

(1 year ago)

5 people out of how many have tryed this? You are delusional if you think that it's not hard. :D

Tolc

(1 year ago)

There were at least 20 puzzles with the same trick just in the last 6 months. Even I made one. If you can't find the way to the questions, that means you quit way too easily. And it's 8 people now.

BTW, the entire point of puzzles is to eliminate the quitters and lamers. If I wanted everyone to enter, I would create a public giveaway, not a puzzle.

NB264

(1 year ago)

Well congratulation, I am not six months here. I actually didn't knew about puzzles and the puzzle site used here until two days ago. You obviously haven't meant this for people which are fresh here. You must be one of those "oldfags" which think they are awesome.

Tolc

(1 year ago)

You have way too little information at the time to make any claims, so don't insult me. The only effect you'll accomplish is to feel stupid afterwards.

NB264

(1 year ago)

Now you even feel insulted? Nice job, you elitist. And yes I have too little information at the time, I wonder whose fault is that.

Tolc

(1 year ago)

Get over yourself.

You think you are the first puzzle solver on SteamGifts who had to wait till the end and see the solution posted only to learn from it for the future? You think this is the last time that will happen? If so, go away and find giveaway to enter, no one is holding you chained here.

NB264

(1 year ago)

No, you get over yourself. On the one side you are demanding people to know some sort of tricks for your game but on the other side you aren't even able to add a warning in your OP to tell people that this is not for newbs. Shame on you.

Tolc

(1 year ago)

I never said new users can not solve this puzzle.

NB264

(1 year ago)

Exactly!

Pod1555

Demanding? There are hundreds of giveaways on Steam Gifts right now. If you don't like this puzzle, simply ignore it.

ZaknazaaR

(1 year ago)

And that's actually what I do. But that doesn't mean I can't tell the OP what's my opinion.

Tolc

(1 year ago)

Let him continue with the free bumping :)

NB264

(1 year ago)

I must really be out of the loop, because I can't find the way to the questions myself :P sigh Fine, I'm a quitter :3

Same here, I'm a bit mad for not getting anywhere the first time around though.

NB264 (1 year ago*)

In 12 hours, 8 people managed to find the puzzle, 0 entries for now.

If there's no entries in the next 12 hours, I'll post a single hint. Vague hint.

Did I miss the hint somewhere or did someone solve it in the meantime and screwed this up for the rest of us?:)

skanda

(1 year ago)

Bogysha and Award are in, so no need for new hints. Even if there was, hint would be about finding the puzzle, not about "the dreaded star" :)

NB264

(1 year ago)

I refuse to believe that someone managed to solve that question!

skanda

(1 year ago)

I refuse to believe that you have not solved it yet.

Stop taunting us. ;_;

I... still don't get it.

Pod1555 (1 year ago*)

"Since there were 0 entries first time around" I wonder why, where's the bloody puzzle? Is there some secret that only people who have been here for longer will know or something?

To find the actual puzzle is a puzzle itself, so to speak. Not a hard one really.

ZaknazaaR

(1 year ago*)

I thought so but I've read his post 5 times over and can't find anything even close to resembling a clue where to find it... He doesn't even say we have to find the puzzle first, as if he forgot a link. I'm sure this is a troll.

Pod1555

(1 year ago*)

Well, I can assure you that it is not a trolling. There is a real puzzle at the end with 7 questions(yesterday they were 5). That last puzzle is hard tho.

ZaknazaaR

(1 year ago*)

Or, we all agreed to troll new members and there is no puzzle, so they should quit and go back to entering public giveaways... :)

NB264

(1 year ago)

Oi! I've made some private give aways in the forums too. But I think you'd be telling the truth if not for ZaknazaaR... Bah I give in, there's some trick that only certain people know by the look of it. Good luck to the others! OP I hope you post solution at the end.

Dragoneer35 (1 year ago)

This is impossible man, where's the puzzle?

Cacuu (1 year ago)

you're a puzzle demon, my friend.

Batzn (1 year ago)

its not a good puzzle if the puzzle itself needs knowledge of how these kind of puzzles got handled in the past. but keeping things fair doesnt seem to strike me as the intention here

"There were at least 20 puzzles with the same trick just in the last 6 months." OP

I think you must of had to frequent these forums a lot and see the end of many competitions to know the "Trick" to finding this puzzle...

twistedmetalero (1 year ago)

i feel so stupid when there is already 8 people with the puzzle and i cant even find it, tried everything, ctrl+c, clicling everything, giving away all my stuff to a suspicious guy in dark corner and nothing :c

9 people now.

You can't call your puzzle easy if nobody has been able to solve it for this long. Just sayin :)
