    New Feature Alert!

    Ok, so we had so many people asking for easy ways to share these fun puzzles, we decided to make it easy on you. On each page, in the upper right hand corner, you will see a little envelope icon and the text “Share These Puzzles.” Click on the text and you will be transported magically to a page that will allow you to quickly and easily share these puzzles with your friends and family. Heck, go ahead and send them to people you don’t even like! All we want you to do is share – because really, that is what makes the world go around. That, and gravitational pull from the sun.

    Parents Just Don't Understand

    So, I wanted to tell my mom about this cool new site that I help make. Here’s the text of my instant message conversation with her:

    (10:21:11) Tanga Joe: you like
    (10:21:34) Mom: I can’t do the first puzzle, does it have to do with leap year?
    (10:21:42) Mom: What is Tanga anyway?
    (10:21:49) Mom: Just for fun, or?
    (10:21:50) Tanga Joe: a website
    (10:21:55) Tanga Joe: you’ll see in a month
    (10:21:58) Mom: There isn’t enough info
    (10:22:12) Mom: is it a commercial website?
    (10:22:20) Tanga Joe: that’s because it’s “One big huge fetchen’ mystery”
    (10:22:20) Mom: Is it for someone, or yours only?
    (10:22:23) Tanga Joe: that’s the title of the website
    (10:22:44) Tanga Joe: yes, it will be a commercial website
    (10:22:53) Mom: well for pity’s sake, I don’t understand at all
    (10:22:55) Mom: whose?
    (10:23:00) Tanga Joe: Tanga
    (10:23:06) Tanga Joe: Tanga, LLC
    (10:23:09) Mom: ?
    (10:23:15) Tanga Joe: that’s the name of the company
    (10:23:17) Tanga Joe: it’s a new company
    (10:23:34) Mom: well, you worked for them before, right?
    (10:23:43) Mom: the game outfit
    (10:23:52) Tanga Joe: one of the guys from that is involved with this.
    (10:23:55) Mom: the name is familiar
    (10:24:03) Mom: ok
    (10:24:12) Mom: how is Jessa?
    (10:24:15) Tanga Joe: have fun with the puzzles.
    (10:24:16) Tanga Joe: Good.
    (10:24:50) Mom: I don’t know how to do them
    (10:24:59) Mom: there aren’t enough clues
    (10:25:02) Tanga Joe: what’s another word for impoverished?
    (10:25:04) Mom: give me a hint
    (10:25:09) Mom: poor
    (10:25:18) Tanga Joe: Ask Dad who Bond’s gadget man was
    (10:25:23) Mom: indigent
    (10:25:35) Mom: he is walking in the rain
    (10:25:48) Tanga Joe: do you know who Bond’s gadget man was?
    (10:25:50) Mom: you mean who made his gadgets
    (10:26:01) Mom: no
    (10:26:07) Mom: of course not
    (10:26:23) Mom: that is why I can’t do the puzzle, it is probably a guy thing
    (10:26:27) Tanga Joe:
    (10:26:40) Mom: ok, I will check it out
    (10:26:45) Mom: is it cold in seattle?
    (10:26:48) Tanga Joe: yes
    (10:26:51) Tanga Joe: look at the website now
    (10:27:04) Mom: we have had snow in the mountains, 46 right now outside
    (10:27:08) Mom: ok
    (10:27:54) Mom: it takes a while to load
    (10:28:20) Mom: my internet is slow today
    (10:28:50) Mom: I still don’t have it up
    (10:29:14) Tanga Joe: dad’s not back yet?
    (10:29:20) Mom: no
    (10:29:31) Tanga Joe: ask him when he gets back
    (10:29:33) Mom: it may not load at all
    (10:29:35) Mom: ok
    (10:29:50) Mom: he will be gone for an hour or so
    (10:29:50) Tanga Joe: and then think what “pinecone” – “cone” is
    (10:30:04) Tanga Joe: pinecone minus pine
    (10:30:11) Mom: good grief, all this from 29 x es?
    (10:30:11) Tanga Joe: oops
    (10:30:16) Tanga Joe: pinecone minus cone
    (10:30:31) Tanga Joe: what?
    (10:30:56) Mom: well, the puzzle has 29 xes doesn’t it?
    (10:30:59) Tanga Joe: no
    (10:31:03) Tanga Joe: aren’t there question marks?
    (10:31:16) Mom: Yes, 2 at the top
    (10:31:19) Tanga Joe: click on the first one
    (10:31:29) Mom: oh, you have to click on it?
    (10:31:32) Tanga Joe: the front page isn’t a puzzle
    (10:31:57) Mom: oh for pity’s sake, well, there were no instructions at all
    (10:32:14) Mom: I will work with it again, you click on both the question marks?
    (10:32:24) Mom: and what are the xes for then?
    (10:32:42) Tanga Joe: they will turn into question marks, one new puzzle each day
    (10:32:50) Tanga Joe: did you click on the first one yet?
    (10:33:10) Mom: no, I don’t even have the website up yet
    (10:38:39) Tanga Joe: did you click it yet?
    (10:39:29) Mom: I need more info
    (10:39:40) Mom: yes, I have the puzzle up
    (10:39:48) Tanga Joe: ok. does it say “Impoverished”?
    (10:39:52) Mom: yes
    (10:40:12) Tanga Joe: Ok. What is “pinecone” minus “cone”?
    (10:40:21) Mom: pine
    (10:40:24) Tanga Joe: Ok.
    (10:40:55) Mom: desmond llewelyn?
    (10:41:08) Tanga Joe: So, take your first answer to another word for Impoverished, add Bond’s Gadget Man, and “pine”
    (10:41:21) Tanga Joe: “poor”, something, “pine”
    (10:42:02) Tanga Joe: from the page: “portrayed James Bond’s gadget man, Q,”
    (10:43:25) Mom: so, it’s poor desmond llewelyn pine?
    (10:45:24) Mom: Porcupine!!!!!!!!

    Note the time gap in between the last two lines in the log. Shakes head.

    Stats - your request is our demand...

    Hey Tanga Guys/Gals – we saw that some of you were asking for some stats to see how many people played the puzzle and how long it took them to solve it. It is now underneath the puzzle of the day! What other stats would you like to see? Any other comments on how things are going with the puzzles?

    PS – who wants to take a guess about who is the designer of all these cool puzzles?
