Opus X'

Postby navneeth » Fri Mar 30, 2007 5:16 am

hal, I hope you don't mind my putting up a little something of my own. :D
This could keep those who have solved Opus X busy (but I doubt it is going to remain unsolved for very long). Came up with it just this afternoon, so everything is quite straightforward, nothing very subtle like the Master's. Even the arrangement of the pictures is pathetic! :lol: (BTW, that 'pathetic' is not supposed to be a clue :P)

As in the original, PM your guesses, but this time to me. :D

We have a winner new
It's none other than our very own treebeau! :D

He also happens to be the first person to completely solve the puzzle, i.e., solve all parts of the puzzle associated with each picture.

Wow, I dont have even the slippery edge of a grip on this one.
I recognize the heir to the British throne, but thats about it.
I'm going to need OT's face recognition capability.
I'm thinking team effort here.

Hey y'all, no hints? :o No subtle plays on words or creative formating to help me find the way to a solution? :(

Thanks for reminding me about this, piq! :D

As I said in the first post, there are no subtle clues hidden in those pictures. What you see is what the clues are! (If that makes sense) Moreover, I find it a bore to provide clues. :)

How good are you at Norse mythology?
Think of the chief and who is his daddy?

It's been a month since I posted this. So let's wind this up.

This contest will be closed when regular programming on BR comes to an end on Monday, 30th April, 2007, i.e., at 6PM EDT. So your PMs should reach me before that time. :)

Here is the solution. Moving along the rows from left to right, we have

A LEG - SAND - ER (as in ER) , or Alexander

Niels Bohr - A picture of Beethoven with 125 on it, denoting his Opus 125 - his 9th symphony(ODE to joy) - An inn, or putting them together, BORODIN

Prince Charles and Igor Stravinksy make up PRINCE IGOR

So, it is Alexander Borodin's Prince Igor.

Navneeth,
Very Good....

The "A Leg" thing kept throwing me in a different direction.


Nice Job!!!

As soon as I saw Prince Charles and Igor Stravinsky "Prince Igor" hit me. Then it was a matter of working backward.

Nice puzzle. Do another!

I actually did figure out "Prince Igor", but I kept coming up with Foot -Desert - Hospital - (unknown) - 'Beethoven's Ninth' - House for the rest of it.

Thanks, TM and treebeau. I'll wait for the idea to flash and put up another one. ;)

Having figured out Prince Igor, why not try to create the composer's name with the other pictures, or you could've "guessed" the composer and sent the answer. I don't think anyone else wrote a Prince Igor. :)
