Three words

Post by Matt Morrison » Wed Oct 21, 2020 9:10 pm

I can't get the middle one

11.5.2.6.18.20.1.1.19
3.1.9.14.13.22.21.9.3
2.5.3.17.21.5

(loosely?) beer related

I should probably say, this was a black IPA with blueberry and maple syrup in it, which should go some way to explain 1 and 3.

And well, what do you know - looked up vaccinium and apparently we're talking blueberry. Thanks Conor! Is that a word you know?

Now that this is resolved, do you mind telling us what this was supposed to be about?

I mean, I see now, but the way you made this thread, it wasn't clear whether this was some "standard method" puzzle we're already supposed to know about or what. I'm guessing the original puzzle came with better instructions in any case. But anyway I presume you'll be explaining the whole thing later for everyone who hasn't worked it out.

When you say "this was a black IPA" etc. it still makes no sense. What was a black IPA? The thing you got the free puzzle with? You're insane.

Not really, but it didn't seem like it could be much else, so I googled it (cheat!) and it had some results.
