What's going on, TAY?!


What in the blazes is this? ...I'm not Astro? This is not Thorsday?! Don't panic! Astro asked me to cover and I actually remembered. If for some reason two forums show up, we'll add it to the pile of mysteries we are supposed to solve today.

Just like the above puzzle!

I've been slowly but surely getting through (the good) Professor Layton's last adventure. I know. It's okay to cry, Everyone. Let it out.

Anyway, so I have been slowly making my way through the puzzles because some of the puzzles have been worded a little bit crazy-like at times. Some of them are also suffering from the classic case of not being clear on the instructions as I've found a few times before in the series. Plus, my brain is not what it used to be. Heh heh! Heh...

For today's suggested topics: Solve the above puzzle! Or tell me about recent gaming adventures that you had a difficult time overcoming. Okay, Dark Souls II people. That means you can talk to us about it too but if you're going to do that, make sure to add SPOILER tags.


Now, I am off to figure out what I want to write about for Professor Layton because there's much to cover but how to approach it...

As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain't nobody got time for puzzling! It is the Open Forum, after all. Don't forget that the IRC Channel is always around for you to carry out discussions as well.
