He gave her 8 choices. 7 lead to death, one lets her continue.

  • O6A
  • O6B
  • I6C
  • U6D
  • I6E
  • I6F
  • O6G
  • O6H

Of course, he knew she had no idea. He turned the hour glass and gave her 5 items from his suitcase.

She still had no idea when the hour glass was over. With his giant smile: don't worry, you have another hour to find out.

He turned the hour glass once more and told her:

You are missing three letters, they are within:

Why did she choose O6G?


This hint was added following @user118161's answer

For second part, what he gave her was three papers. One printed all black, another empty one, white color and one with a # printed in huge font size.

Hint 1 - 8th of April

The five items share something in common. What they share has 5 letters.

Hint 2 - 15th of April

The three rightly chosen letters from black white and hashtag plus the letters of words in Hints 1, when correctly concatenated, form a person's surname that help identify why she choose O6G :)

Hint 3 - 15th of May

They are playing Chess
I modified a little Hint 2 making it better. That is, his surname is 8 letters length.

1 Answer 1


Partial answer, based on @user118161's comments:

The pictures represent:

Oscar winning movies: Lala Land, Joker, Titanic, Green Book, and Gladiator

So, the solution to Hint 1 is:

Oscar, which has 5 letters

    $\begingroup$ As does 'films', and for that matter, 'thing'. But, would the op choose 5 academy award winners if a more generic answer was wanted? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I think it is likely that 'Oscar' plays a role in the solution to the puzzle, but the purpose of Hint 1 was just to get us to figure out why those images were chosen in the first place. I suspect that 'movie' is what the OP had in mind with that hint. We'll know soon enough. $\endgroup$ Apr 10, 2020 at 7:50

    $\begingroup$ First letter of oscar is o, which is also first letter of o6g. $\endgroup$
