## Unbridled Optimism

- The five clue-pairs give the following five words: STEP HEM BACH POP MANY
- If the L-shaped letter grid is cut and folded correctly, it should look like a square paper spring.
- The letters on the spring are in pairs, one is R and M. What might you do with this?
- The pairs are the cipher. So all the M's in the original words are R's.
- HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL

## Chillin' in the Multiplex

- Once the six squares are cut out, there is only one way to arrange them into a cube such that each vertex (corner) contains a movie character, the actor who starred as that character and a loose description of the movie that character was in. To add to the challenge, each of the four movie descriptions is used twice.
- Once you have the cube assembled, you should get 8 movie titles that can be entered alphabetically in the provided grid.
- The film strip is your final extraction.
- The large numbers are the indexing. For example, 5,3 is movie 5 (GHOST) letter 3 (O), and the small numbers show you where that letter appears in the solution (positions 4 and 19).

## Snow Blindness

- The large numbers indicate how many neighboring hexagons are shaded in.
- There is only one solution where the snowflake grid is symmetrical and all branches are connected.
- Following the six-fold symmetry, this pattern is the only solution for the snowflake.
- Each small number indicates the braille pattern (slightly distorted) for the two-by-three array of hexagons below it. For example, the 3rd letter is N.
- WINTER WHITEOUT
