The Cast Keyring (Blind Solve)

  • Опубликовано: 28 мар 2017
  • This video is one that was requested by a bunch of commenters. This is a blind solve, meaning that I've never solved this puzzle before, and I talk through what I'm thinking about as I solve it. If you want to see more of these types of videos, let me know in the comments!

    I'm a Top-10 finisher in the US Puzzle Championship and just released a logic puzzle game on Steam! The game is called RYB:

    He gives it away if u listen carefully. He knows some moves don't work without even trying them. Not a blind solve. Its impossible to prove its a blind solve anyway on youtube.

    Have you ever actually thought about doing a puzzle blindfolded? Not a blind puzzle or anything but maybe a puzzle that you have solved and think is fairly difficult. Maybe one that involves looking into small spaces or so? i think that would be pretty neat to try out. Even if you have already solved it.

      Oh, I think I saw one of your comments in the "Hanayama Spiral" and answered it. This one was also a part of that order (which was several years ago, I'm not sure if they still offer it)
      It often takes quite a bit of work to find a puzzle you're looking for!

    A lot of the Hanayama cast puzzles have very similar steps to this one, requiring you to rotate and re-insert the pieces in order to solve it. A similar puzzle to this one (which was far more difficult) would be the Hanayama Twist. It adds a maze to it, which was very interesting to me. Another unique challenge would be the Hanayama Marble, and one of the more difficult ones would be the Hanayama Enigma. I recommend all of them (really, all Hanayama puzzles are pretty fun).
    Also, really loving RYB. Really well-designed.

    I finally finished nemesis factor in my "perfect score" run I ended up with 995 I didn't notice it doing anything different from when I used the hint button in my previous runs but it has been a week. But now I am curious what happens if you actually end with a perfect score of 1000. But I am putting the puzzle away fro a while I am burnt out. Thanks for introducing me to the awesome beast and all the other puzzles on your channel. I can't wait to get some more fun things you recommend.

      I am pretty happy with it. I was kinda hoping to get 999 but at the same time that would have been soul crushing. I don't want to be spoiled on what happens but is it different than a non-perfect score?

    • FLEB
      FLEB  2 года назад +2

      995 is a very good score! Wow!
      But yeah, take a break. I can tell you what's supposed to happen if you get a perfect score, but I haven't done it myself. I'm going to try a 100% run in a few months myself.
