Congratulations to everyone who made it through the Tanga Puzzlethon!
Here are the daily clues for the Tanga puzzles this week. To see the hint, highlight the space to the right of the date.
I don't give away answers here, just a small hint each day to help get you started or past a rough patch. If you want stronger hints, you can check the blog on the Tanga site itself, which is chock full of spoilers.
While I avoid giving away the answers on this page, be warned that there may be spoilers in the comments to this post, so open those with care.
November 27: A map would be most helpful here. Also, there's a bit of a flaw in this puzzle, which I'll say more about in the comments of this post. Update: they fixed the flaw.
November 28: It's a little annoying that there are no lines to indicate letters in each word, but even without that, this is not so bad to put together. Just work with what you're given.
November 29: Do you really need a hint for this one? If you must have a hint, then the only one I can give is going to be a biggie. Sure you want it? Okay... count the total number of spaces.
November 30: I'll leave you to figure out the connection between the seven clues. The hint you really need tonight is what to do with the numbers. Focus on the ones with two digit numbers. Do you notice anything about the first digit of each of these?
December 1: The third line of clues is confusing. I went with "under skirt, vertically challenged, and calm in middle of storm" instead of the clues they've given. This means my answers weren't the same width as the clues, but in the end, they worked better. I'll put a bigger hint about the VC part in the comments. UPDATE: My answers as clued above were correct. The puzzle-makers fixed the width problem.
December 2: I'm ashamed of myself because it took me 10 minutes to get the connection even though I am from Massachusetts and have a close affiliation with that particular answer. Once you get the connection and figure out what the missing one is, you'll need to think contemporary.
December 3: Pay attention to the first word.
