Welcome to The Newsstand board! If you are not aware of what The Newsstand is, you can get caught up by going to the pinned post on this board. I am not an editorial person, nor a person who would know where to start on keeping you all informed. I still read the local newspaper each day to get my news and listen to an AM radio talk show. Instead, I will be posting a couple brain teasers 2x a week. Post the correct answer and win 1k in-game! You can either respond with the answer or download the images and write on them to respond. Happy solving!

P.S. If you are interested in posting editorials to this board, please contact myself or another admin to get the rundown on how!

I forgot all about getting these created today, so I will post the entire week tomorrow! Keep yourself updated by checking again about this time tomorrow.

Brain Teaser Monday, March 13th
Four playing cards, one of each suit (a red heart, a red diamond, a black club, a black spade), lie in a row on a table. They are a Jack, a Queen, a King, and an Ace. Using these clues, can you determine the cards and their order?
1. The Queen is somewhere to the left of the red Jack
2. The Ace of clubs sits between two cards of different colors
3. The diamond is somewhere to the left of the heart
4. The King is not the diamond, and is not next to the Ace.

Place the digits 1 to 9 into the empty cells so that the three rows across and three columns down form correct arithmetic statements. All calculations involve only positive whole numbers and should be performed from left to right and top to bottom, ignoring mathematical order of operations. A starting hint will be provided on Thursday.

Brain Teaser Wednesday, March 15th
Starting on a letter in the longest row, spell out a 10-letter word going from letter to adjacent letter -- horizontally, vertically, diagonally -- as you use every letter in the grid once. Then, rearrange the 10-letter word into two 5-letter words that begin and end with the letters shown in rows at the bottom. What are the words?

Quote from: Soulreaper56 on Mar 09, 2023, 07:57 PM45.6/35 ratio of acid to water?
1.30:1

Not quite. The answer will be a whole number! Start by adding both numbers in each ratio to get your ratio pair. Then find a common denominator!
16:20 or 4:5

Great job! 1k coming your way

Quote from: Nicadean33 on Mar 01, 2023, 07:24 PMHint for Wednesday Brain Teaser:

Since the feud is rectangle, the two answer prices will have 180 degree rotational symmetry. Start by filling in the symmetrically opposite letter for each P and Q given in the grid.

Do you have more hints?

I do not unfortunately, as any more would really give away the answer :(

Remember that they are symmetric, meaning you will have the exact same shape twice!

This is such a great idea! Over the years I have played on so many different computers, and my last computer died on me and I never recovered anything unfortunately :(

The only old SFT picture I have is after I gave Fridge of Death a cosmetic update. Miss some of the old w3 events, but the news look great :)

Quote from: Pritis on Feb 28, 2023, 10:00 AMI was originally shadowjb123 and then Mojang made the mistake of giving indecisive people the ability to change their name free of charge and I've since gone by Cierinal_, Dordly, panzerkopf, ElzieDG/lzdg, Nydsmeil, iratefrog, etc etc. but I've finally settled on Pritis. You're most likely to see me in game but I do check forums on occasion :). I joined sometime in summer 2011 when I was a little guy. Makes me happy to see all these old faces. :heart:

Glad you've been back Pritis! Over 10 years of commitment!

In this small crossword, all of the consonants in the answer words are provided, in alphabetical order. The missing vowels -- and the words themselves -- are for you to guess. The letter Y isn't used.



Brain Teaser Tuesday, February 28th
The three words coded below are clues to the placement of their letters in this grid. Each number in the code represents the sum of the column and row headings of that letter. Can you put the letters into the proper cells of the grid to spell out, reading across, a great way to make money?



Brain Teaser Wednesday, March 1st
Divide this rectangle along the lines into two identically shaped 12-block pieces so that one piece contains all the P's and the other piece contains all the Q's. A starting hint will be released on Wednesday if no one gives the answer before then.

Dinah secretly assigns values to each of the letters in the word SHORE and then provides Annika with the sum of the letters in these shorter words

Dinah challenges Annika to determine the sum of the letters in SHORE, and Annika does it quite quickly. Can you?

It's been great to see you back around! I got married last year (2022) and am currently finishing my master's, how similar! What brought you back if I may ask?
