There's a theory: if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There's another theory: this has already happened.

Hi there,

having played the demo, I just wanted to get a brief overview over how many players got what secret on their first playthrough.

Poll
Did you get the secrets on your first runthrough?
  Yes I kinda knew there was something but could not solve it No
Hidden number on first tile
Turtle Hunting
      138 answers
Poll created by PiHalbe


Personally, I got the hidden number and kinda knew there was something with the message but did not know how to put it to use.

I am not sure if I like the way the turle riddle was implemented. Does anyone know if the French version is more precise in this regard?

French version of the tortoise riddle is completely absconse.
I did knew there was something but still could not get the metagame clue

We didn't see the number because I printed it in black & white

I had my cards printed out with two printers (laser and ink) and noted that it would have been tougher to discover on the darker laser printout. However, on the light ink printout I spotted it easily.

Let's hope that they have a good printer for production of the base game and clues will actually be visible (but not too easily).

The turtle : hunt 4 turtles. The turtle card number is 4, so 4x4=16 now replace the card for the 16th

Finally played this tonight.
It's very short for such long rules, and I'm left unsatisfied. Not so much because I didn't find everything, it's mainly that after looking at the solution to the turtle clue I am feeling cheated, this requires me to look at a card at the risk of being wrong and seeing information I shouldn't be looking at.

I don't want to spoil, but there are other games that require the very same thing and the clues explicitly tell you to do so. In this case it's a guess regarding the 0+ cards 1 star, does it become 0+ cards 4 stars? And then look at a card which isn't listed at all.

I hope the main game isn't as unclear as this.

I am pretty sure they said they would address this in the main game. Something like don't look at this card unless you came from card X on the back.

I can't figure out how I was supposed to find the Gold 17 card... I peeked at all the cards and I couldn't figure that out...

Explore the 017 spot multiple times until you have exhausted the other options. You can do it multiple times.
