I imagine you can sit down and rest awhile for the rest of us to catch up. I'm still trying to anagram IFCLALOTONCU (and I used Purple Hell, or whatever it's called--no one word answers) on Level Three.

This is a pretty involved riddle; glad no one's sitting around with a bomb strapped to them waiting for me to solve it...

Got it. Bless you, kazza. I'd come kiss you, but, you know, it's a ways away, and you're watching your football, and, well, I'll just say thanks.

Well I had a team effort from all of my family but they got sort of bored when we couldn't get any further so I'm still struggling along trying to get to 10. If any of you need help in the next few levels just shout because I remember some of them being rather difficult :D

Re: The Sherlock Holmes Riddle

I'm stuck on Level 4 now, lol. The clue is..."What is the name of this riddle?" And the name of it is Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the Wickham Mermaid....but I really don't see how that helps me...

I'm having a senior moment with Chapter 7. Have the map & found coordinates but haven't got a clue what to do with them.
Tried putting in words as the URL & got one (Gorgon) that said"very very close" but I'm stuck now.
My brain is frazzling, lol.

***possible spoiler***

That's where I'm stuck as well; I assumed the magnifying glass was in the monocle, but no words I tried availed anything. Like you, I couldn't make any connection with the title, other than relating mermaids and spyglasses perhaps, but nothing...

Google gorgons and I thin kit should give you a clue ;)

Re: The Sherlock Holmes Riddle

Got the Level 4 answer (albeit with a little help...). SH, I really don't think the "clue" about the title of the riddle is very helpful. Much more helpful to study the entire page of the riddle book for this one...

Thought the answer for Level 5 was going to be, literally, staring me right in the face, but I was wrong. Haven't done much digging yet...

Re: The Sherlock Holmes Riddle

Yeah I'm stuck on Chapter 4 as well. I thought it might have been a play on the title of the chapter but can't find a word that works. Time to head home from work now so I'll have to continue tomorrow!

Edit: Nevermind I figured it out.

Re: The Sherlock Holmes Riddle

Can someone give me a hint on the first one. I'm convinced that the answer is Watson (he's visiting Holmes after all) but I seem to be barking up the wrong tree because anyone who can count can tell you that Watson has six letters. Help?

Sherlock you need to look at the source(right click and there should be an option to view source or inspect element)  and if you need more help after that just let me know and I'll give you another clue.

I have 'police', 'hansom', and 'bonnet'. Are any of those more American than they should be? Policehansombonnet doesn't sound like a chemical to me.

Re: The Sherlock Holmes Riddle

@Molly, it's like the cabs Sherlock Holmes uses to get around in the original canon. The second picture on the second chapter is one.

Re: The Sherlock Holmes Riddle

Okay - the first one is a more colloquial version of 'police' and goes with the childhood rhyme "What's the colour of a 2 cent piece"
The second word is a more generic name for what you're looking at
And the third word you have right.

I'm stuck on Chapter 5 now. I've found the relevant timetable and I know what day 'tomorrow' is, but the 'fastest' train time doesn't work...
