Clues

  1. SHADING (2,2)
  2. RAGTIME
  3. BATHTUB (2,8)
  4. UNCLUED (2,3)
  5. ANSWERS (2,5)
  6. LUGGAGE
  7.  ?
  8. CALZONE
  9. MEMPHIS
  10. JUKEBOX
  11. PRODUCT (4,9)
  12. KUMQUAT
  13. PAPRIKA

Try 1

B1 = 2 LEFT

B2 = 2 UP

B3 = 2 DOWN

B4 = 2 RIGHT


C1 = 6 LEFT

C2 = 6 UP

C3 = 6 DOWN

C4 = 6 RIGHT


D1 = 3 LEFT

D2 = 3 UP

D3 = 3 DOWN

D4 = 3 RIGHT


E1 = 1 LEFT

E2 = 1 UP

E3 = 1 DOWN

E4 = 1 RIGHT


F1 = 4 LEFT

F2 = 4 UP

F3 = 4 DOWN

F4 = 4 RIGHT


G1 = 5 LEFT

G2 = 5 UP

G3 = 5 DOWN

G4 = 5 RIGHT


SAPHIRE seems wrong. 11 can be PRODUCT if you start at (4,9)

Try 2

B4 = 2 R

B3 = 2 D

E3 = 1 D

D2 = 3 U

F3 = 4 D

C2 = 6 U

D4 = 3 R

F3 = 4 D

Thoughts

  • Each clue has 7 letters
  • The grid is 7 letters high
  • The letters are from A to H--8 letters total (A4 to H1 = 26 total combinations)
  • There are 13 clues
  • The grid is 13 letters wide
  • You can get all the words to be in the grid by starting at a letter, and moving up/down/left/right to get a path with all the other letters. I'm still uncertain what the letter/number pairs signify...
  • I wonder if it's the number of steps paired with a direction... there are 8 directions?
  • If the codes represent (x,y)-translates, RAGTIME is probably our best shot. It can be generated starting from (1,2) if B4 denotes two steps right and B3 denotes two steps down.
  • B means move 2, E means move 1,2, or 3. Numbers 1 through 4 signify directions. (4 = right, 3 = down, 2 = Up, 1 = left).
