The answer to this question was solved years ago. No math is necessary, it's already been done by a super computer that took many millennium to compute. And the answer is 42.

Did the math correctly, but I keep getting a 404 message-page not found. And yes, I used the link from the blog....going back to bed now, as my odds of scoring a Board of Circuits are even worse than usual, apparently

Couldn't get the absolute Napoleon one to work out correctly, until I finally gave up on it.

Fortunately by that point there was another one posted, and fate (and sports-reference.com) smiled down on me that time around

Beware that the URL in the clues appears to be getting cut off.

Are you using the blog link or the details link? The details link is shorter than it should be, the blog link supposedly has the full one. Personally I would just bring up the page source and find the question, the link in there is full for sure.


Question for all you conundrum conundrees, did anyone get the AKC / Vishnu / Game of Thrones one? I still can't figure that one out.

Grats! Absolute Napoleon is gone but the math was (-460 + 1808)*(10000-2525)

Doh...guess I should have rounded the absolute zero instead of trying to miraculously get the decimal to work out.

An added boost of encouragement for those who feel like they can't do it quick enough. The one that was just put up, territories and such, didn't sell out for over 10 minutes. There's hope, keep at it!

Sorry

If it's of any consolation, each time someone wins, your chances should get better. Good luck next time :D

I know. This latest one makes #3 that sold out while I was checking out though. Oh well.

I finally got to one. I kept getting server errors. But it sold out : (

Have they all been solved or have any been skipped ?

What is this 'Board of Circuits' people keep referencing? Is that what is in the Bag o' Crap?

I'd like to know this as well. My hunch is they're all sold out, but that's only because some have had some wrong wrong wrong wrong numbers in them and people still managed to get to the crapsies.

I found one that goes enough digits but it still isn't coming out right. I checked more than one source for the performances on Broadway raised to cats lives and no dice.

I'm curious about the answer to the Lord of the Rings one. Has that one been found, and if so how did it work (I was expecting the answer to be 2968*1368=4060224, but that wasn't it)?

So can you only win once? I managed to get one a few back (the territories, presidents, and monarchs one), and I've been doing the few since then just for fun. They've all been sold out by the time I get them, but I'm curious if I'd even be able to tell if I got there before they sold out.

The Cats one was multiplicative, not exponential. Someone else said something about it, so maybe they goofed and then edited to correct it? Anyway, it was 7485*9=67365. It is, of course, long since sold out.

You can still see the order button, but if you try and order your order will be canceled on you (and I wouldn't be surprised if they canceled your original bag as well if you tried to pull something like that).

This is another one I couldn't solve. I found the same numbers so either we're bad at nerd, misreading something, or wootgoofed. No one had any comments on the item about it either, that might actually be one that isn't sold out..

Hmm... I tried to do the french author one, and I got it in within the first few seconds, but it took me to a 404 error page. Does that mean I was incorrect? or does it mean that I just wasn't fast enough?

404 means incorrect. The pages will stay up after they sell out.

well that sucks. I got that last one SOOO fast but I guess the link they show o the details of the product page isn't the whole link and I was putting it in wrong. I was on fire too! :/

The links in the product page are sometimes cut off. A safer bet is to copy the link from the blog page

Goodmorning everyone! So excited to see another puzzle crapshoot! Luckily for me, my math is terrible and I do not plan on torturing myself for the many hours I did last time for the crapword. I'm still bragging about my last arrival anyway :p

Good luck everyone! I'll check up on you occasionally and make sure everyone is holding onto their sanity!
