Funny Farm!

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

Funny Farm!

Postby udosuk » Thu Jun 14, 2007 2:53 pm

When searching on the net for another puzzle posted here, I discovered this exciting word puzzle site:) :

http://shygypsy.com/farm/p.cgi

You get a network with a centralised theme, and you can enter different words, where new nodes will be created. The eventual goal is to reveal all nodes on the 25 inter-connected networks. It's a huge puzzle and it says on the website that we probably need collaboration from many to solve it together. So here we go. Let's see how long it will take us to crack it!:)

Some early progress on the initial network ("On the farm"):

ox, bull, cow, chicken, rooster, hen, egg, milk, pig, sheep, goat, horse, barn

Quite addictive. It says to "paste your friend's saved game here". Try pasting this in, saving the merge and posting the new URL string.

The link's too long it's destroying the page width.:( Perhaps we can use tiny fonts to post the links?

Okay, I'll manually include a few more words before using links next time:

farmer, cowboy, rodeo

Have tinyfied the link in my earlier posting. Probably would also work if the link was put in a
Code: Select all
 code block


One was so obvious by the sheer size of the clue:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Got to go to sleep now. Here is my current state:

Underquark, if you would edit your last link to {size 1} I think the page width will go back to normal for those who have a screen width of 1024!:idea:

You guys are great!:)

Meanwhile I've added a few from RW's effort:

Edited:
A new save - some more completed pages & only 5 more to open!

More edit - added 2 pages more:

Another page opened - only 2 left! And I'm glad I found my "home country" too.:)

Okay enough for the day, still can't open the last 2 pages but solved many additional nodes on other pages.:) Hopefully all pages will be open when I next check this thread.

A little help here.
Once you've typed your word/phrase how do you enter it so that it appears on the grid?
Or does it do it automatically once you've typed the correct word/phrase?

Just type in the word and press enter. If the guess is correct it appears on the grid.
