Tanga Puzzles: March 5 - March 11

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 5: At first it might be hard to understand the ribbon, but think about it.

March 6: Keep it casual. Oh, and I'll put the superhero names in the comments.

March 7: Scissors would make this easier, but if you don't have them handy, you can probably let it take shape just with a careful review of the pieces.

March 8: There are two different people who could be the answer for #5, but one of them is the answer for #1 instead.

March 9: I was so addicted to Tetris in grad school that I used to play it in my sleep. It was so satisfying to see those rows disappear! Really tough to resist.

March 10: I got off track with this one and tried to make it more complicated than it needed to be. This hint was brought to you by the letter H.

March 11: Yech! That's not a belly-button. And when you get the clue phrase and look up the answer, you can only use the first word of what you find.

Tuesday night superheros: Frozone, Ms. Marvel, Green Lantern, Greatest American Hero, Heman

What a cute puzzle with the Superheroes although I needed help with the names. The only one i knew was Heman. I like the way the answer tied in so beautifully.
I NEVER would've gotten yesterday's without the zodiac hint - I had never seen those symbols before or at least I never paid attention to them.

What an excellent argument for group solving we are. I could identify GL and GAH, and He-Man sure looked familiar. Their secret identities? Only GAH without hitting Wikipedia.

Jon, I agree! We're all so much smarter when we group solve. I actually get on the phone each night with my mom to solve these, and most nights we share credit for the solution.
