      Getting good at puzzle solving is really just solving a lot of puzzles, and creating them as well. Solving puzzles will give you a good sense of what's out there, while creating puzzles gives you a good sense of the constraints that puzzle authors face.

  • Not Real

    I've always been interested in brain teasers, and by association, puzzles. But I find puzzles somewhat terrifying, with a mysterious object in my hands created by someone who masterminded it all, knowing something I don't, and I'd feel that if I couldn't solve it, I'd probably go mad with irrational fear. When I found one of your videos for the first time, the introduction of the puzzle made me rather anxious, but you always solve them in the end, and for some reason, that makes me feel really safe. I subscribed because of that. I think my heart would give in if you posted a puzzle without a solution. Thank you for your work!
    P.S. I'm interested if you have any puzzles you made yourself, and if you have any videos of them?
    Thanks u-u

    • FLEB

      Thank you very much for your kind words! I don't usually stream my own puzzles, as I like to highlight other people's work, but there are a number of puzzle competitions that have used my work, which is publicly available. (And don't worry, the solutions are posted!)
      If you go to, I wrote "Countless Crossword Clues", "Spectacular Space Sojourn", "Dastardly Dungeons", "Time Cube", and "Time For You To Get A Watch".

      Joey Chestnut is a professional eater, who was better known at the time this hunt was run.
      And yes, GREY is supposed to be that answer. There aren't available answers for this puzzle and I messed that crossword clue up. I got it confused with "redcoats".

    when it's past midnight and u get fascinated af by these puzzles.. It's nice to keep thinking while you go through the steps and sometimes actually getting things right or guessing ahead of the video. a small triumph 😅 ( even this particular one was nothing for me, since English isn't my first language I feel like I have a clear disadvantage here lmaoo)

      FLEB not on this one tbh. it was too hard for me bec English is a foreign language to me and it's hard for me to make the same associations or just keep up with the full vocabulary (the words in the puzzle). but I came here through the Eureka puzzle (it was recommendedfor me) and I really liked that one. it was more logical so I could solve that one in the head while you did your explaining beforehand 😅 ( obviously it's not half as hard as this one, but as I said, a small triumph) keep up with the videos! it's so exciting bec of the cleverness behind it !

    from all of your puzzle videos, this one is the hardest in my opinion.
    I wonder how many puzzles do you own personally in total at this moment?

    • FLEB
      FLEB  Год назад

      A couple hundred? I've never counted. Also, with puzzles like these, they're shared with everyone on the team, so they're not really part of my collection, more like part of my puzzle team's collection.

    How long do you think a puzzle like this would take to design?

    • FLEB
      FLEB  Год назад

      Depends on who was designing it! :p
      But really, this would probably take a while to come up with the original idea, and then you would prototype it with paper, and then you would take it through testing, and then you would rewrite it, so it would take a while.
      I don't know how long it took this team to design, but once you had the idea, I don't think it would take more than a few hours to make the first prototype. Testing takes a loooong time, especially since you have to change the puzzle based on feedback.
      Getting the first idea is the hard part!

    Shouldn't "confederate color" be 'grey'? That's the color generally associated with the confederacy, and it is far more closely related to 'ash' than 'red'.

    • FLEB
      FLEB  Год назад +1

      There are, so when solving this for the first time, you might get most of the other clues, and then figure out that TOMATO is what you need from marinara.
      On my sheet while resolving this puzzle, I thought it would either be TOMATO or ONION. Once I got BOMB, I figured out it that CHERRY was the theme and that TOMATO fit.
      SHOES on the GUM category also took me a long time. And I thought MUSTACHE (must...ash?) fit the ASH category until I thought of CIGAR

      I don't really know, because I don't have the timing data from the competition (it was back in 2013), but my guess is 45 minutes - 1 hour. At this event (which was 40+ puzzles), an hour long solve was pretty long, although I think we struggled with this one a bit.
