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?
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
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
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.
Gotta stop watching....
Working on HOG 4...not going well
Hard to find shapes or ITH not right?
The shapes....most shapes are on same angle as the item, but not in this one
They are on same angle...
2nd shape somewhat covered in box
5th shape really dark in picture
Could i have a check on HOG08 please? It's seems to be really easy but the code isn't right :(
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
Edit: yeah the second last letter/clue in HOG07 was crazy lol
Edit2: Phew! Finally got Phase 1&2 phases. TYVM for trains jeffhowe :)
Yea in the picture it’s not tilted the same and also a lot of it’s shape is hid..
Added notes in reserved area on how to solve meta puzzle!
had trouble in HOG 8, does the 1st letter literally means the number?
i think the 6th item let me kept getting incorrect
The first one is on the picture, check it again carefully!
omg thanks ^_^
Did you solve it all?
Edit: Nevermind, I'm a little slow ~ <3
Eh I tried. Too many objects look the same so that's too many combinations to try.
I’d like,to help but need to know exact shapes giving you problems...
You,may need to wait for other phases to solve. The other phases are really different so you may be able to solve those.
Actually I tried again but swear I entered the 2nd code in correctly. I guess I'm just bad at these.
Friend request on Steam... maybe I can get you over the humps...

Are these inspired by the item-finding puzzles from Artifex Mundi games? I vaguely remember them from Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart. They drove me crazy lol
Finished the first 8 hogs, phew. Thanks for the puzzle
Did you finish the ITH puzzles after the hogs?
I did. the animals where fun too.
Solved all the HOGs but two of the ITH are giving me problem.. (and they're both vowel-less animal ones, guess I have a problem with those^^)
The animals in each ITH have a common-ness about them if that helps...
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.
Ok I would've never found that second one lmao.. Thanks for the hints :p
If you stay stuck let us kno which two you are stuck on so can give hints.
Bump for phase 1 and 2. Meta confused me.
Hats off to you sir! You beat me by almost 3 hours. Salute!
There is a theme to matching all the pictures and even the word matching fits too.
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 :(
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.
I recognized the theme. Solved the first three questions. The fourth one didn't accept my answer. Can you check that Q?
Yes there was a misspelled one... reload and try again.
Phase 1 halftime bump ;)
Wait, what are the passcodes used for? Do we need to keep them?
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.
Bump for Meta!!! :)
1st to crack the ultimate challenge! Nice job!
Bumpy, for starting working on it. :3
Yay! Welcome to the party!
Good luck, Eli.
Thank you BeriBeri. :3
Bump for HOGs <3
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...
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!
Well that was extremely helpful :D I know what it is, will solve it tomorrow, thanks again!
Sorry, I made it too easy... should have put a spoiler warning...
Bump for solving Phase #1 :D
Phase 1 & 2 done. Will need more time for the meta though. Bump!
When it starts clicking then it will fall into place...
Solved phase 1 & 2, but got lost by the meta puzzle.
Refer above to comment
bump for solve...HOG01 &2.
Congrats! Keep it coming!
Stump... buck... (stuck+bump, bump+stuck).
Stuck on HOG08.
Shapes in the middle >.<
[Go! Go! Beridok!]
I got it now, without hints.. problem was in shape 3 and shape 6 :p
I knew it will be like this. It's quite common for me to 'shriek' for help, but manage to do it minutes later.
Thanks anyway - someone will probably use the hints.
Sure np, I’ll delete hints... thanks for joining in the event!
I think that some sentences might have hidden something you didn't see.
I might be mistaken with ITH15/Q2. :P
Edit: To be clear, I have all answers for ITH1-16.
Fixed ITH 15... thanks!
Bump for a nice event I hope I'll have time to do!
Only have one solver of optional challenging meta puzzle... would love to see you crack it too!
Bump for phases 1 and 2 solved! Looking forward to phase 3 and 4 :)
3&4 took the most design time... It has about 415 pictures in it that I downloaded, and edited for the puzzles that are part of it...
Wow, that is some dedication! I can't wait to start solving them :)
I did not save the links to the ITHs nor do I really understand the instructions (my English isn't all that great) so I am happy with just solving the main part of the event. But have a bump instead! I am still very much looking forward to the next phase :)
Sure, np, it was optional...
Thanks for conquering phase 1and 2!
Thank you for putting them together! It was a while since I had so much fun solving SG puzzles I kinda love HOGs <3
You probably already own them, but just in case, I have just put up a bunch of them as whitelist GAs if interested :), otherwise ...
...this is just a bump!
As always a very exciting puzzle
Thank you :]
Yay for hype! Thanks!
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?
Edit. Nevermind. Got it.
Glad you got it!
I can't have any right phase1 passcodes in ITH. Are you sure nothing is broken?
Did you solve the ITH puzzles (after the HOG picture matching)?
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.
Glad you got it figured out!!
I can't solve HOG 3, it's weird because apparently I found all the objects, but the ITH code is not working..
Maybe it’s a circular one that getting confused.
Add me on Steam and I’ll see where you’re going wrong..
got it now, thanks!
Welcome! Added hint to reserved area cuz that one wasn’t fair
