Note: I added a (4) and an (8). It doesn't affect the puzzle.

  • $\begingroup$ I think I have the rebus pretty much worked out but the squiggly lines make me think its supposed to sound like something else. Not sure what or how to apply it to the rest of the puzzle. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


The rebus first picture:

14 Libra = 14 pounds = 1 stone ~= rock

The rebus second picture:

SHE + ET = SHEET ~= paper

The rebus third picture:

CHEERS sounds like SHEARS ~= scissors

The five arrows with numbers in parentheses

represent throws of rock-paper-scissors. The numbers are the number of letters in each of the words: (4) = rock, (5) = paper, (8) = scissors. The arrow points from the loser to the winner.

Taking the corresponding letters gives us

Which is true because A won 2 of the 3 throws that weren't draws.
