I got number 5! Although, damn, the three sacred stones one has me stumped.

2 is one of my favorite sets :)

Great, looks like its blocked at work, but will try later. Can I ask you publish the Percentages of correct answers so you and we know how hard they were.... and how clever we are :-) or not.

I know I got 2, 3, and 4 correct. Realized 5 after submitting the wrong answer..

First four were pretty straight forward. No idea on the last two though. Nice that the riddles are to become a regular feature.

By in United Kingdom,

This was a lot easier than the last one.

Question: After I solved 5 riddles, Do I need to add them to answer the missing set?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I think I got the first five correct, but can't fathom which Star Wars set is supposed to be the missing one. There are dozens of possibilities that could fit in between the sets mentioned.

The first three were simple for me; I didn't know the exact set numbers, but I knew exactly what to search to find them. Four was harder since I never paid much attention to that theme, but it didn't take me too long to catch on because of the tracks clue. Five, I took a *guess*; I don't think it was the right one, but I couldn't find any better match.

Six stumped me completely, even after a while of staring at UCS sets trying to see a pattern xD;;

Do you submit the sets’ names for the answers, or do you submit their numbers?

The missing set question was really clever. It took me a while though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ugh. 3 and 5 are killing me.

@Mosquitosquisher7 - No, just the set number is required as an answer for each question, although the set name is acceptable too.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think I got the first 5. That missing set was tricky though

Gravatar
By in United States,

Got all the puzzles correct, but the simplicity of the 5th one made it hard even though it's the easiest one! Didn't even have to look it up. haha.

For the SW question I was like OH! tantive goes into the imperial star destroy into space then into the death star! but "space" is not a star wars set. I KNOW I got 1 and 2, I guessed on 3, 4 I didn't get and I guess on 5, gave up on 6. 1 stumped for 10 seconds and then I was like I KNOW WHAT IT IS! YES!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Whoever said that the missing set was clever, I have to agree. I managed to figure it out eventually, without being a LEGO Star Wars fan whatsoever, so with a bit of digging its certainly possible to find the best fit

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Looking forward to the answers being revealed, see whether the wild guesses I took on a couple of these were accurate! XD

I cannot get number 5 for the life of me

Gravatar
By in United States,

I couldnt figure out what "kite" means in riddle 5 but I think I found all of the correct sets regardless

Gravatar
By in Australia,

5 had me really stumped, but I think all the others were quite simple. In fact, 3 is one of my most wanted sets!

Gravatar
By in United States,

1-4 were easy, no clue what 5 is, and I don't know if I got the missing set one right.

In other words, I nailed it. :P

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

OHHHHH I JUST NOW REALISED THE FIFTH ONE!

I am slapping myself for not getting that one sooner... it's so obvious when you know it, but if you don't interpret the 'one thousand years' part of the clue in the right way, then it's also so easy to miss! I only caught on myself when I saw generalpdw up there mention the question's simplicity, which sent me back to take another look at it.

Well played, Brickset. Well played.

By in United States,

5 is the only one I'm not 100% on. I have a good guess for 5, but the "kite" reference isn't fitting.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Skipped number 1 initially then had a massive facepalm when I realised it was the set I am in the middle of building!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Figured out 3 because TheWackyWookiee made a comment in this thread about no. 3 being one of his wanted sets. I checked out his wanted sets list and looked at all the sets that had underground tracks. There were 2 sets that matched underground track description so I narrowed it down with the sacred stones. Thanks!

By in Singapore,

Got it! I'm very pleased that I managed to figure out the missing set as quickly as I did considering I have never seen a single Star Wars film.

By in Norway,

1, 4 and 5 was pretty easy, believe I figured 2 and 3 after a bit of searching, but had to take a wild guess on the missing set. Didn't get any confirmation of which or how many I got right, is that normal?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@axeleng - I believe that's normal, yeah; I get the impression that the correct answers are going to be released next week ^^

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I spent nearly an hour searching for an answer for number 5! @BionicleJedi was absolutely right! All you need is to take a deep breath, give yourself some time and it will get to you. ;)
