Blifaloo Riddle Challenge

Please excuse my first post as self-promotional, but I have been a lurker if that counts for anything. Embarassed

Blifaloo Riddle / Puzzle Challenge Thing

I was hoping to get some feedback, as the folks here seem experienced in puzzle solving.

Me and my friend have been talking about making an ARG (though we had no idea any existed, let alone a whole community of players, except for what I remember of The Stone).

Thanks,
Toni

Well, the answer to the first puzzle is
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
"jung", as in Carl Gustav Jung, the psychiatrist famous for his archtypes (like INTP in the image) ...but wasn't he Swiss, not German?


I got stuck on the second one though
Nevermind, I've got it.

Took me long enough Embarassed

And the next one is
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
"listen", the first word of the title of the book that the quote is from.


On we go! (These are really addictive!)

Anyway, I really like your puzzles! It's neat how you turn a bunch of clues into one image.

Glad you liked 'em.

Thanks for posting a little bit about how you worked out the answers Smile

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
About Jung: yup - he's Swiss... but the german reference was to that "Jung" means "Young" in German.
Not old, but Young Smile

Thanks Rogi Very Happy

I didn't really do the flash work, I downloaded source FLAs from flashkit and then just modified them, I'm terrible with flash.

If everyone could do me a favor and refrain from posting the last puzzle's answer that would be great (there is a prize draw for a $50 amazon.com gift cert... and I think just the people that solve it should get to enter Smile )

I appreaciate any feedback, thoughts, comments... gripes, etc.

puzzle 8

I figure it has been long enough that a solution for puzzle 8 could be posted
metals - ls = meta (piece 1)
trout - (not in) out = tr (piece 2)
wheaton - wheat = on (piece 3)
(piece 1) + (piece 2) + (piece 3) =
meta + tr + on = metatron
thx to my dad for recognizing bil wheaton for i am only 19

Actually, there is a book by Wil Wheaton advertised on the left side of the page as a hint. It was the Dogma video ad, though that really gives it away. Dunno if they've always been there or not.
