    Has anyone tried the new puzzle at www.relpats-eht.com? I am stuck on the last page and it's really tough.

    It depends upon how you look at it, apparently.

    Either way, this person has a rather difficult series of puzzles here.

    I worked on this a while ago, so I don't know if I have the second set of answers or the first set (you seem to imply there are two puzzles?)

    Anyway, here's as far as I got:
    1) Concatenated
    2) Legs
    3) Math
    4) 4
    5) Starting
    6) Ellipse
    7) Cricket

    That one is a little difficult to figure out... The answer only relates to one word in the paragraph.

    I thought number 8 maybe was bible... but no.. then I though language but no once again.

    edit: what really sticks out to me is the last few words... "mold from boredom" no matter how you shake it, this doesn't make sense.

    You are in the right phrase. focus on one word in that.

    could it be Bleak House? That's the book the word boredom was first used in.

    It's mold...but...what...could it mean?...

    edit: The word "wrapping" is also important, apparently, but I still cannot figure it out. If you do, PM me the answer, because this is hell in my mind.

    I got the impression of something like a bottom-feeder, something that is the lowest of all things..

    No real good idea though.

    Well, penicillium doesn't work either.

    The answer relates to both mold an wrapping... I'm trying not to just give out answers, but to point people in the right direction.

    I'm not even going to attempt ten. It's too hard.
