As you’ve probably noticed, the fourth puzzle was unlocked a few hours ago. Have at it!
For what it’s worth, I think it’s easier than the last one. But that’s the hard part about being the guy who actually made the Puzzle: you’re never quite sure…
Some of you have expressed concerned about trying multiple answers. The Puzzle Rules do not prohibit trying more than one answer — but, as I said yesterday, the rest of the puzzles do have clearly defined answers, so you won’t need trial and error.
Remember, you can solve the puzzles in any order — except the first, magazine-based puzzle and the final puzzle. And we’ll be rolling out new puzzles all month. So if you get stuck on one, move on and come back to it later.
