Someone has to be the first to post so it mught as well be me. I am completely in the dark with this one, I've tried converting the numbers, adding subtracting and anything else I can think of. I think I must be missing something as this is only round 2. Is there anyone around who could give me a shove please.

Maybe you need to look more closely at the numbers, what are they, what do they mean.

I have been staring at the numbers for ages, I have even thought they might be road numbers but after drawing them out on a map nothing appears.

Could you add anything to what you can see to help yourself along the way a bit?

Nothing to what I see at the moment but I will carry on playing with it. It looks like it is a case of overthinking again Very Happy

i'm just not getting this at all. I've given up trying to work it out on maps, or looking for patterns in the numbers, and have started guessing. Any clues??

The numbers on their own will probably not get you far. However you will be able to see that there is a similarity in layout/structure. each row has the same layout, and why are there 4 numbers in each row? Hmmm...

You may need to add something to each of the rows of numbers to make it into something you can use. Then you can properly start on the puzzle...

add something...

four numbers each row- four letters in a word, map co-ords. four points of compass?

I know, four more cups of coffee...

I know this must be driving you dotty.
But if you look at the previous couple of posts I'm sure you will be able to spot what you are looking for.
Hopefully this will point you in the right direction.

i've made a couple of pretty drawings- an eye/saturn/kite shape is obvious. will this help me find the answer?

also considered putting decimal points in numbers, but can't see where.

Confused

Got it in the end with a fair bit of proding in the right direction. Taking a break to go and be a human being for a while!
