Baffling Puzzles

One puzzle cache had us watch an entire movie to learn one clue that led us to ancient documents,from which we had to solve an encrypted message based upon counting lines and letters. It took us an hours and we still didn’t find the cache!

Some puzzle caches are unbelievably difficult but avid puzzle solvers wouldn’t have it any other way. How about you?¬† Tell us about the most memorable puzzles you ever solved and how long it took you to do find the answer.

  • I really enjoy wooden puzzles (basically fancy jigsaw puzzles). I have not done this,so maybe this could be a challenge for someone,but I thought a real fun activity would be to have 1 puzzle piece at each clue/cache location. Once you had the entire puzzle put together (say 15 pieces or so) you would have a clue to find the “final”cache. So basically a puzzle within a puzzle. I don’t have the time to do this,but thought I would post this and maybe someone would be able to run with the idea!
