My world ranking: #24 [Elinoire] (I really fell in the rankings when college started but I’m happy)

Some tips:

  • I am not sure how the point system works but you are awarded extra points beyond bonus picarats depending on the number you are in the world to have answered the question.
  • When puzzles are no longer ‘live’ the puzzle will be uploaded to the puzzle page.

Layton’s World

202060

I’m super hooked to Layton’s world. The puzzle’s are pretty awesome considering they force you to collaborate with people around the world (or at least wait until someone posts something useful on twitter). I was so excited when I was 4th in the world to solve the recent puzzle, but I forgot to screenshot it and I wasn’t logged in, but hey, 6th ain’t so bad (on top of being temporarily first in the rankings).

Screenshot (173)
The game hasn’t quite caught up.
Screenshot (176)
Yay

Don’t worry, I cropped out the answer (and things like my country), but the puzzle was super clever. Something that confuses me though is that the number 1 has 248 picarats, but the maximum from the first three puzzles is 230. Then again I got 77 points for solving this puzzle instead of 70, maybe there’s a bonus for being in the top some number to solve it.

Anyway have fun with the game 🙂
