    Hello everyone!

    Christmas Puzzles are here! They can now be played in my Portal Worlds any time from now until 26 Dec. There are no prizes, just fun!


    Meadow World

    Guess the 2 well-known Christmas Carols from the notes (represented on a musical stave by lollipops)! It helps to sing out loud! Some notes are short, some long; the guide to the right will help. Award yourself 5 points for each tune.

    Desert World

    Santa has delivered presents to 8 houses, but needs your help to work out how many to deliver to the last house. This puzzle is based on the “Magic Square” puzzle (try an internet search if you’re unsure what this is). 5 points for helping Santa.

    Snowy World

    No puzzle here, just browse the busy Christmas Market. However, get 2 bonus points if you can spot the penguin!

    Water World

    This puzzle is based on the popular “Word Search” puzzles (again, do a search to find rules). Words can go backwards or forwards, but always in a straight line.

    How to play:

    There’s a grid of decos (9x9) with each deco representing one letter. That letter is the FIRST letter of the pop-up description you see when you hover your mouse over that deco. This may not always be what you expect from the pic of the deco, but it's the description that counts.

    Can't see pop-ups? - Turn them on in your “Profile & Achievements”, “Settings” tab, and check the box “Show tooltips”.

    Write down the letters as a grid on a piece of paper, then you’ll be ready to play. See if you can find these festive words in the grid:

    ANGEL BELLS CANDLE CAROL CHURCH FROSTY HOLIDAY HOLLY IVY JOY LIGHTS PUDDING REINDEER SANTA SNOW STAR TOYS TREE

    Award yourself 1 point per word found.

    Good luck, and Merry Christmas to you all!

    Thank you Mimi!

    Yes, quite a few players have been chatting about it, especially the "Singing"!

    Lots of time still to have a go - answers will be posted here after Christmas.

    Hello everyone!

    Here are the answers to the Christmas Puzzles. Well done to those who took part!

    Meadow World

    The 2 carols are:

    1. Hark the Herald Angels Sing
    2. In Dulci Jubilo / Good Christian Men Rejoice (they have the same tune).

    Desert World

    The answer is 4. Each row, column and diagonal adds up to 18.

    Snowy World


    The penguin is "helping" the choir. A singing penguin, marvellous.
