The Package

On the first try that is...

Took me twice but I got it. The damn wire got me in the end. Choose wisely!

I beat it in 9 minutes.

*HOW TO FIND THE SOLUTIONS FOLLOWS!*

The combo-lock lights do not correspond to the wheel you are turning. Adjust one wheel at a time and check with each adjustment. If a light turns green, any light, you have the correct number for that wheel and can move to another wheel.

For the number pad, each row adds up to a certain number, except the bottom row.

For the switches, it's binary. The top left is 1, the bottom right is 2048. Activate the switches to get the number.

For the wire, find which one is equal to the listed number. To find which number corresponds to which wire, think of how the colors are represented in hexadecimal. This I found to be the easiest one.

that was a neat little game.

It took 2 tries. It took the longest for me to figure out the pattern of the keypad, the rest was easy after that.

How do you figure this out? the keypad?

The rows up and down must equal 15.

OK, but why 15?


ETA: Oh, for "15min" right?

I really don't know if that's even the idea they were going for...just know it worked. I'll let you figure out what positions the "9" and "0" go in.

Yeah it took me twice also...guessed on the wire both times and got it right the second time. I was so into it like it was life or death.

With the pieces they give you, you can also make it 12 in all directions, which doesn't work.

not working right on my computer - there are no pieces anywhere for the keypad

It's just "12" up and down. Not side to side.

It's 12 up and down and side to side, if you don't count the 9 since it's off to the bottom.

There is a number across the top - mine was 1111


flip switches to match that number

Close call...you almost got yourself killed because your binary-fu is weak!

GD thing finally
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 11:09:37 PM EDT
Pretty easy until the end. I multiplied out the numbers and guestimated which one was correct.

I waited until the last moment to cut the wire though, hoping for some better clue.

So I beat it with only a few seconds left.

Keypad says wrong no matter what pattern I enter, 15, 12... any ideas?

Just make it add up to 15 up and down in each row.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 11:24:55 PM EDT
I did, still said wrong.

Tried again and it went though...

Got it on first try with about 6 minutes remaining.

Didn't read the entire thread either, stopped reading after the partial explanation in 3rd post.
