Re: Caught out

Managed to crack the first two steps...

And then "I had it" - finally.

It's less a matter of identification, but rather of recognition.

I've got it shaded and I'm positive it's right. But I don't recognize it. I feel like maybe this just wasn't part of my childhood or something similar.

Can someone throw me a starting point of how to recognize this?

Are you positive?? Have you searched for it? In verse??

I went through the book again but nothing. sad
I even tried looking through the background layers.

Can you give me a range or something?

Spoiler

What you are looking for is symmetric. It's also small, but not in the background.

And searching "in verse" has a double meaning. If you haven't seen that, I have a negative feeling about your positivity.

Re: Caught out

I knew I had seen it but then, as mentioned above, "I had it" as well.  Good hint by the way smile

You're looking to match the numbers with things you've already seen elsewhere.

In particular:

Spoiler

Boxes that match the one containing the numbers

Re: Caught out

The first thing you need to do is...

Spoiler

'catch' - you need to catch the letters that fill in the empty box near the top of the page, which correspond to the numbered box directly above

Does that mean 3 = C, 4 = D and so on? If not, I have no idea how to "catch" the letters...

Spoiler

They're spread throughout the book, in the various positions inside the rectangle. There's one in code 1, for example. You need to collect them all, and write them into that empty rectangle in the same positions.

Also, although you may not wish to, you can get full hints for each section of this puzzle using the hints function on the puzzle submission page. If you click 'Hints' for this puzzle it gives instructions on what to submit for extra help on each part.

So for example, I went to puzzle 3 and found the letter L in the box on that page. Am I on the right track? If so, I can't findcorresponding letters for puzzles 4, 8, 10, 7, 2 or 11 so I'm still very much confused. Thanks!

Re: Caught out

Spoiler

The numbers are position indicators, not puzzle indicators.

As you work your way through the book, you'll see unexplained individual letters in unexplained rectangular boxes, that have nothing directly to do with the puzzle they appear in. All those rectangles are identical in their proportions.

You'll find two rectangles with the same identical proportions at the top of this particular puzzle, one with numbers in and one that's empty.

The first thing you should do is fill in the empty one - ignore the one with numbers until you have filled the rectangle.

Does that help?
