Re: 2021 Goals / Resolutions / Whatever You Want To Call Them.

Partly inspired by Lucas, I decided to finally conquer my arachnophobia this year. I never was too fond of any of my phobias but my arachnophobia is something I worked on before - it had gotten somewhat better in that I stopped my daily spider hunt, but it had gotten worse when a daddy-longlegs spid...

Re: What's On Your Mind? (Silly or Serious!)

Yeah I have that issue every time I play it - sometimes there are 3 or 4 possible moves for something and it can take more than a few moves before you noticed. In move 7 I move the bishop to F5, that's the piece that goes to g6 later. Because it's a poor game and because it can't be found online it'...

Re: What's On Your Mind? (Silly or Serious!)

How about question 21 then? IIRC you play chess... Question 21a is "fill in the letters B, N, R, Q, K at the question marks". The last move is Qd4++ Question 21b is "who plays black in this party?" At the start I decided to skip question a, since this was such an unusual game I thought I'd be able t...

Darker than Christmas - but your post reminded me of "difficult puzzles" - FBI Claims the Zodiac killer's code was recently deciphered fully. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/11/us/zodiac-killer-code-broken.html But back to a lighter note, where's this NBV Christmas thing? https://www.aivd.nl/actuee...

I'm pummeling everybody I know to take a look at the nefarous NVB Christmas Puzzle.

NBV is the encrypting branch of the AIVD, the Dutch CIA. Their Christmas puzzle is little short of torture - famously hard.

The annual GLOW light-art festival couldn't take place this year due to Corona, but to "give the town something", sponsors had hired two architects for two art projects. One involved lots of huge blue lamps so that the nocturnal sky was a bluish purple. The other involved 1500 weather balloons with ...

G** the b**** gave me a heart attack.
