I will start updating with clues every so often:

One: A clue that will help you see three hints, to be sure that you can start looking for a solution.

Second hint:

The number after each letter draws, you closer to the question.

Third Hint:

You will have to work out what each Bit, represents.

Forth Hint: (Only view this hint if you want to get a simple break down of the first three hints)

Hint 1 (Letters = Numbers), Hint 2 (Draw - something Visual), Hint 3 (Numbers - on or off)

    $\begingroup$ Since the numbers are all 1 and 0s I was thinking it may have something to do with binary but have no idea where to go from there. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @gabbo1092 take a look at the third hint, which I have related to your question. I will post more clues but there are stages to solve to complete this puzzle. Hints 1,2 and 3 will help you solve the first part, and also contains a clue to what is required for the next step. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


So A=1, B=2 and so forth. Take as many 0's or 1's as indicated by the letter. This gives us a 21x21 grid:


Which looks suspiciously like a QR code:

enter image description here
When read on a QR code reader, the code translates to "3x14=". So I suppose the answer we're looking for is "42".

    $\begingroup$ The backtick can be used in spoilers like this for monospace formatting. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ That is correct, I was going to drag out the hints for a bit longer. Now to think of my next puzzle. Also I really need to think of an original answer and something not too obvious. $\endgroup$
