1. Back to square one wave


Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

OrleansBelle, that's such a clever answer that I wish it was mine... But it's not the one I have.

The rest all count smile 4 more to go!

But beware: Some answers may require the contents of more than one box. Or no boxes...

Of course first you'll need to find the 9, which may require some... lateral thinking wink

That's a clever one, but would you believe my answer's only 6 letters long? wink

To increase your chances of finding my intended solution, printing out the puzzle (and trimming off everything outside the puzzle border) could help you turn up some ideas.

What? May I please see an explanatory graphic? This was the BEST kind of puzzle - the kind I carried around with me. But I never got close to that answer. And how did that hint help? razz
