# Thread: Find the Proverb

1. ## Find the Proverb

I'm testing this concept as a potential puzzle! I think some of you will get the quote in a couple of seconds... However, it may make for an interesting concept, and I am still in the process of refining / improving its challenge level!

Try it out though. The aim is to type a single digit into the green squares. If the digit is correct, it will highlight words in the grid green to indicate that the letter is correct. All correct digits in the row will create the word in that row (ie, all the squares will be green.) Once all 10 rows are complete, the Proverb will be known!

Cheers

I am at a loss to understand the logic: The goal is guess the proverb, by making random guesses in the cells?

3. ## Re: Find the Proverb

I'm playing with an idea. I thought I'd throw it "out there" to get some response as to if the idea is useful, and if so...to develop it further. What you say is quite true though. At this point there is no logic to it! I suppose if I take the idea further thats what I will need to work on! I'll have to light a scent candle and meditate on it!!! Thanks for the advice.

PS: Just don't blame me if your advice creates a monster puzzle such as Bandido's grids!! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

5. ## Re: Find the Proverb

You can put <!t>[hide]<!/t> before and <!t>[/hide]<!/t> after text you want to hide. For example, <!t>[hide]<!/t>Hidden solution<!t>[/hide]<!/t> becomes <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Hidden solution</span hide>.
