Here's What Solvers Are Saying

(Read these and more comments at THE RUNES Forum)

“I am a lifelong puzzle addict and have always been in search of the Holy Grail of all puzzles. I have now found it, The Runes is the most interesting puzzle project I have come across and I am absolutely hooked.”

 

“I got hooked when I found I could actually do some of the puzzles!!! Then when I found the hidden ones like the Runes Cross, that was when it became an obsession.”

 

“My first impression was ‘Argghhh, I've no chance’. I then looked at it more carefully and realised that the individual puzzles were doable, so my second impression was ‘yep, those are ok, I can do this’.”


I thought it should take me until summer break is over.
Now, I'll be glad if I finish this year!!!!”

 

“For me the magic moment came on page 2 where the green picture could mean any of three things. I identified the picture almost at once but could not see in which of the three directions it might go. And I knew that I had to find out!”

 

“This should come with a warning label on it. ...It's highly additive.
I've put it down with good intentions of getting back to life and work. But I couldn't keep away! Now, instead of sleeping, I'm doing the Runes.”

 

“I took it to Rome with me and sought inspiration in the Forum....
................. aaaagh, there's no escaping the clutches of the Runes!”

 

“It took three pages before I was fully sold on this. I guess that's probably because I would class myself as a "hard-core" puzzle solver. I didn't see anything particularly interesting on page 1 and page 2 didn't take much longer. It wasn't until page 3 and the "proper" solution for the top keyword that I was hooked. And, of course, I had peeked ahead and seen the awesome complexity of the later pages. Oh, and the mysterious Easter Island Statue that also made it clear that there was a lot more going on here than met the eye.”

 

“What I have enjoyed is the step-by-step developments of the first few pages leading into the greater challenges as you realise that there is more to each puzzle than you were first led to think - and the buzz of discovery when you realise how it actually works.”

This is one of the most complex puzzles I have ever encountered. I’ve been working at this since June and feel I'll probably still be here next June too.”

 

“I am proud to say that I have had my first Eureka moment when everything just slotted into place. I know I still have a long way to go but for now I am bathing in my moment of glory.”

 

“I’m totally intrigued with this puzzle. Even though I’m nowhere near finished - I'll be sad if I ever get to the end. I now think I need counselling!”

 

“Great to know that there are still people out there coming across the great quest.....

You have a great adventure before you. It is weird at first trying to solve puzzles without a clue as to what they are about. But it all slowly falls into place, and you will have wonderful "Eureka" moments of discovery when you realise what is going on and what type of puzzle they actually are.
....then comes the moment when they start to interact, and suddenly life isn't so straightforward.”
