GeekDad Puzzle of the Week Answer: Present, Start to Finish

Geek Culture

This week’s entry by estimable puzzler, Torben. Well done, sir.

Who couldn’t use an extra $50 to spend at ThinkGeek this time of year? This week, said $50 goes to Jim and his ten-year-old son, Nate, the younger of whom solved the puzzle while home sick. Jim also points out this week’s entry structure in which younger entrants earn more slips in the hat — “double the number of entries for any solver under age 15, triple the entries for any solver under 10 and quadruple the entries for solvers under age 6 at time of submission” — means that a five-year-old should, in fact, get 24 entries. Do you see how?

Feel better soon, Nate! And congrats, Jim. The rest of us can use the code GEEKDAD22DC for $10 off a ThinkGeek purchase of $50 or more. Happy holidays! And don’t forget to come back Monday to see what goodness Judd has cooked up for the season. Only 56 shopping days until Groundhog Day!
