The winner was @mchandra receiving 1 SBD + 14 XP. Congratulations!

This is how I calculated XP:

  • 1st: 10+4
  • 2nd: 9+3
  • 3rd: 8+2
  • 4th: 7+1
  • 5th: 6
  • 6th: 5

I generated a random number to see who wins the 0.25 SBD. The random number generated was 3, therefore the winner of the random reward is the third person sending in the correct answer:

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

Today's puzzle

Make a series of jumps from start to finish, moving like a rook chess piece (up, down, sideways, but not diagonally). The number in the corner of each cell indicates the distance of each jump.

Write the sequence of your jumps in the cells (write 1 into the cell that comes after "start", write 2 into the second cell that comes after "start", etc. until your reach "finish").

To participate in the contest, please do the following:

  1. Upvote the post (if your upvote does not reach 0.01 SBD, it is advisable to send a small bid by a bid bot).

  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, here and here.

I think that last puzzle should have been more clear about the number 16 NOT being one of the 2 numbers.
I spent a long time trying to make it work using 16 and x. Until I came to the conclusion that it was impossible. So you must mean 2 other numbers...
Just some friendly feedback.
