The winner was @unsaymono receiving 1 SBD + 10 XP. Congratulations!

I generated a random number to see who wins the 0.25 SBD. The random number generated was 9, therefore the winner of the random reward is the 9th person sending in the correct answer:

The random reward of 0.25 SBD goes to @doughtaker. Congratulations!

Today's puzzle

In this diagram, there are many equilateral triangles of various sizes and orientation.

  • How many of them can you see?
  • Add three lines (of any length), anywhere in the diagram so that the total number of equilateral triangles is maximized. What is the new total and where do you put the three lines to get that new total?

To participate in the contest, please do the following:

  1. Upvote the post.

  2. Send your answer to me either as a private message on Discord (@ksolymosi#5065) or in an e-mail message ([email protected]). If you use Discord, please make sure that your Discord name is the same as your Steemit name, otherwise, it will be difficult for me to find you...

  3. Comment on the post containing the puzzle mentioning where I should look for your answer (for example „Answer sent via Discord").


Don't post your solution under the post containing the puzzle because then you ruin the game of others!

The answer should contain the identification number of the puzzle, too (for example DBG 11).

Answers should arrive until I post the results of the actual game (usually between 12.00 am and 8.00 pm UTC+1, but exceptions might occur...). This leaves approximately a 12-24 hour time window to send me your answers. (Answers arriving later will not be considered.)

It is possible to correct your answer by sending another solution, but only the last message will be considered for the reward. (So if you send the good answer first and then send another message with a wrong one, then, unfortunately, the wrong one will „participate" in the game.)

Please do not ask clarifying questions. I do my best to phrase instructions as clearly as possible. So everyone should work from the amount of information given in the post.

Detailed rules and information on the scoring and rewards can be found here and here.
