    $\begingroup$ @rudra Also, all indications are towards the answers given being correct, however your first comment is somewhat weird. Can you confirm the given answers to be incorrect? $\endgroup$ – Lolgast Dec 5 '17 at 15:33

This can be too broad. My first idea is:

A clock. It only has numbers 1-12.

Thanks to @ABcDexter for putting the list of possible words together.

This might be a bit of a stretch but...


"If you look at my face you won't find"

Luck is often personified as a lady, who would obviously have a face.

"thirteen any place."

In the west 13 is considered an unlucky number. Though I admit this might be flawed because 13 is considered lucky in China.

  • $\begingroup$ @D.Mellow the numbers we see are 1 to 12. That’s on an analog clock. $\endgroup$ – Napoleon of Puzzling Dec 5 '17 at 15:20
  • $\begingroup$ Guess that when he says "any place" he negates the possibility to be a clock... $\endgroup$ – D. Mellow Dec 5 '17 at 15:25
  • $\begingroup$ But the term "face" is often used to refer to the part on the clock with all the numbers, so I think clock makes sense $\endgroup$ – Green Dec 5 '17 at 19:27

All possible words out of these are:


We have 13 words. Of these,

CLOCK fits the description.
Cubic can also fit.

Try it out in the app.
