JAN 25th 2 Trains added: 1 under 5 phase solvers and another under 6 phase (or full event) solvers!! by EinAnderer! From a fellow solver of the event!

Hints for picture match of CW09- what is unique about these animals? Caterpillar has many what? Crocodile has many what? Lion is known for,what around head? Camel known for having what? Armadillo has what and it's compared to what? What is the top part of the sweater called where you stick your head out?

Corrections
CW12 Fixed totally... PHEW! (had a wrong letter before in crossword)
CW10 Fixed totally... ! PHEW! (had a wrong letter before in crossword)
CW06 fixed Q1 to be googleable and spelling of “spines”
Crossword 9- all coordinates fixed
Crossword 7 first coordinate fixed

How to solve Phase 3 and 4 can be found HERE


Hog #5 the second shape is turned from what’s in the picture.
Hog #3 the 3rd shape is in a really dark area, use zoom and process of elimination


How to solve metapuzzles for Phases 1&2 and Phases 3&4:

You need to match each picture you get after solving each HOG ITH to a picture on the metapuzzle ITH.
Put the word(passcode) that is with the HOG ITH picture in the matching place on the meta puzzle ITH.
All the matches follow the same theme to make the match and the words fit with it too.
To discover the theme google some of the words that are unique... like DICKORY
That word will lead to the theme of how to match pics.
If you're not from America then making matches might take more googling.
With all the matches correct you solve the meta ITH and get access to a GA.

Last you can solve the passcode keys since all the words you put in the right places.
The keys refer to the 4 words you put in as answers to make the matches.
Figure out how to decipher the keys applying them to the words.
The goal is to find two hidden ITH codes.

Good luck!

Could i have a check on HOG08 please? It's seems to be really easy but the code isn't right :(

Comment has been collapsed.

I'm the opposite, HOG08 was really easy for me, yet I've been struggling to find one last object in HOG07. ; A ;

Ended up getting it, but from purely guessing the numbers/letters in order. I still can't visualize how that hint matches up with the one in the picture. x.x

Ah ok, i knew it was easy. Not sure why the ITH didn't pop up. Will retry again

Yeah I realized that ;) I got stuck on the second animal of HOG6 and the 1st animal of HOG11 but I haven't really tried since then so I don't know if it really counts as "stuck" :p

The animal you’re stuck on in 6;it’s the males that give birth.

The 11th would be what you would call the person in this picture if they were an infant.

I was too distracted by that famous swimsuit... BTW are the numbers a clue(s) or are they there for a later purpose?

There are two things to crack in metapuzzle... picture matching and passcode-key deciphering.

You can get all the questions right in metapuzzle and solve that ITH and get a reward...

Then you can crack the passcode-keys! And get more rewards.

You won’t need the numbers later... just used to crack at that time.

OMG! That's cracked! And I thought I was just matching passcodes to the pictures. Think I'll pass :(

4 months ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

You can forget the numbers and just crack first part for a GA...

Look at all pictures and try to find a common theme that will match the hog pic you got to the pics on ITH. To show you got the match you put the word that goes with the matching picture on correct place and question on ITH.

The passcode keys are an extra puzzle you don’t have to do either unless you want to continue the challenge.

Comment has been collapsed.

Put each HOG passcode word into the PC-ITH-Phase 1 for 1-8 and receive a phase passcode you need to access trains found listed at end of above.

If you choose to try the metapuzzle you will need them again to solve that puzzle.

Edit: too stupid to solve HOG8 Q3 T.T even looked up full lists of possible words and cross referenced them with animals and nothing works :/

You just first have to fill in the blanks to make words... the name of the animal happens automatically in order as you read down diagonally...

The first word missing first two letters is a wind instrument...

Comment has been collapsed.

Yea I understood what I am supposed to do, the problem is just that there are so many options. So I got a full list of words that end with the last 3 letters of the first line and a list of every animal that is 8 letters long and checked for any matches. There were some but none of them actually worked.

I know exactly what the first word is now and it was on the list I found as well, but I must have missed something somewhere. I shall take another look again tomorrow when I am at my PC. Knowing the first word helps a lot, so thank you very much for the help!

I'm stuck at HOG 2. What is the third object? All other objects are pretty clear to me. I've tried nearly everyrhing and I like this puzzle. It would be a shame to give it up. So maybe a hint?

Comment has been collapsed.

Yes I enter the passcodes in each ITH slot (I only have the 5 first ones) and every time it's a wrong guess according to ITH.
ITH is not case sensitive so it can't be this kind of error and I'm sure that I found the right objects/letters.

edit: ooops I didn't understand that these HOGs codes were ITH codes themselves......sorry.
