Hey what does this "Pen" in the score table mean? And how can one get bonus points?


Pen means penalty, if you have a wrong submission and then submit the same puzzle correct later you'll get a penalty. Look in the Instruction Booklet for a breakdown of this.

There is a bonus of 1 point per minute saved if you finish all 22 puzzles before the 60 minutes.

This is also in the instruction booklet, I suggest that anyone with questions look through it once, especially the starting pages.

As I say, I'm not deliberately guessing, I just get to a broken point. I think this is the last common point before I start trying different things, so I reckon something is wrong by this point.

You saying there were three options in the top right was all I needed. I only had two and found the contradictions multiple times. Thanks!
