## Logic Missions

### Logic Missions

As the all knowing moo says
they're not meant as a challenge to overcome like the rest of hts challenges, they're meant to be overcome by you, and you alone, from solving. to quote the logic pages "Please remember that these are logic missions. There will be few if any hints. Don't ask for them please."

Don't post asking for help. You won't get any!

### Re: Logic Missions

the logic missions and I have a love hate relationship but i think it would be nice to have like a one word hint you can access but if you choose to look at it the points you receive for that mission is cut in half or something

### Re: Logic Missions

mm.. I think the logic missions do need looking at..
It's the halloween = xmas one that gets me...
They aren't logical, they're cryptic. There is a big difference.
We should have little logic puzzles, for example, there's a puzzle I cannot find but basically it's something like this:
You're given a picture of 6 or 8 houses on, all of them numbered.
You are told that Mr Jones, for example, lives opposite Miss Chambers, who lives next door but one to a man and next door to a woman. It goes on and after a bit you work out where everyone lives.

I think that is more logical than -removed-, which is more cryptic than logical.
I think they are important to HTS as hacking does involve educated guesswork - i.e. based on facts that you already know.

### Re: Logic Missions

Yeah, the logic missions aren't so much logic as they are lateral-thinking riddles, which don't always go hand in hand.

I think you should rename the logic section "Lateral thinking" or something similar, and save the logic section for actual logic questions.

### Re: Logic Missions

I agree. I still haven't completed [removed]. I know the answer, but getting the syntax exactly as they expect the answer to be in is annoying... There should at least be some fuzzy logic (no pun intended) for the answers. I hate typing in 100 variations of the same answer and still not getting credit for getting it right.

[Removed]
I went overboard though - I got it down to a rather complex equation using all crazy tables etc (can't give much detail ) and then found that it was the simpler version
Ah well, I got there in the end.
I'm stuck on 9 now (the one with "in" in a box).. I've had a few ideas but I'm not too sure..
It becomes guessing. If it said "Your answer will be a mathematical formula" then that'd make it less like guessing.
They need improving seriously.
Can I offer to help redo them?

That's all I think I can give you, and I've probably given too much. Comperr, I accept thy warn.
