Tanga Puzzles: March 26 - April 1

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.

Good luck!

March 26: I guessed the answer based on one word that struck me as a bit awkward. If anyone wants to guide me on the backsolving, please leave comments.

March 27: Another one I had to guess. My only hint is that you're looking for chemical elements. Oh, and the answer is a pun, similar to what we saw on 3/2. Beyond that, I haven't a clue how this one worked.

March 28: The title anagrams to two words. On the last step, you need to repeat your thinking.

March 29: If you can find the car names, you will quickly zone in on the theme. You may need to look back a bit for some of the clues. If you get this in under 20 minutes, I give you my regards.

March 30: Pretty easy if you're economical.

March 31: Sorry, I was away yesterday. The best clue for this puzzle is in the title. Actually, there are two clues there.

April 1: I'm glad I was paying attention today, or this might have gone right past me.

Take the words for each number, and then the numbered letter of each word. When the number's name isn't long enough, recycle. So tWo, thRee, One, ninenineN, eighteiG.

Thanks Jon. I never would have come up with that on my own... my brain just would not go there. I saw the word that is a synonym to the answer, and it sounded awkward. I thought, "I would have said X instead." Then I tried X and it worked.

New to me, at least: If you visit a puzzle after its deadline has expired, an annotated solution is available.

I always forget to check that, but this week I remembered because Monday and Tuesday puzzles had me so annoyed.
