The Perseus Test

My teacher showed this to us yesterday, saying that he'd been trying to solve the first puzzle for about a week. He gave everyone a screenshot of the first problem since the school computers blocked the site. (They block everything!) In a matter of minutes I had the first one figured out. (IT WAS EASY!!!). He said he'd go home and check the answer, not telling us what the website is or anything, so we couldn't get ahead of anyone. (Later in the day Kyle was the only other person to figure it out, he's in 8th grade.)
Today he told us since problem two wasn't something you could take a screenshot of, to go home and try to figure it out. I ended up doing all the problems (along with CM up to number 8 when he logged off). 8 was by-far the hardest...

So... Anyone else up for the challenge? There's a secret forum club type thingy if you do all 10!

I thought 8 was the hardest. I finished it the day after Izzy posted this.

If you're really stuck and want a hint, PM me.

I'm not going to allow myself to do this, even though there's only 10.

I cannot be trusted with those kind of sites. Really. notpron and Qwyzzle both absorbed my life.

...well maybe I'll just do a little bit.... unsure.gif

Oh, you don't understand. Qwyzzle was....well, it was epic. I think there are 100 in that one. Once you get past a certain number, you just HAVE to complete it. Tigersong and I became obsessed. Probably not good since we both had exams around that time. We finished it, though. No thanks to crappy maps of Wales...hmph.

I was unimpressed with number 4 on this Perseus thingy...that's not a puzzle! It's just random clicking.

Actually, I gave up with Qwyzzle because you and Geoff finished it while I went to bed and there was no one to do it with me when I wasn't finished...

hmmmm, maybe I will click.

I gave up on Qwyzzle as well, 'cos I started it a couple of days after everyone else, so you lot had all finished and I was only on level 29.
