    in effect, 2 grids, 14x14 each = 1568 possible hidey places, less already submitted guesses. Is that any easier?

    you just need to figure where the 14x14 grids are positioned, shouldn't be too difficult. The current pic should be a giveaway on this.

    14x14 makes it much more difficult, but at least it'll keep the competition going longer. If it was 7x7, going by the front page it would have been won by now (Luke's guess was pretty much bang on with the system I used for 7x7)

    down to ~1500 hidey places makes it more difficult than over 3000 hidey places?

    I didnt want to post up the pic with spashes thus far so early, but there are a few sceptics out there which forced me to it. I think the 2 grids positions are fairly obvious from the pic so effectly doubled everyones chances.



    The game will last as long as it lasts

    and yes i apologised for my incredibly crap maths of 7x7 when i actually meant 14x14, the game has NOT changed at all, the positions are still the ssame and the yellows and greens are exactly the same - you now have half the area to guess in.

    Oh man. I got a feeling I know which blocks, but gotta wait another 24 hours. :banghead: One question, when you say "14x14" How are you coming up with the range? is 1 single block counted as 1 or 4?

    the grid which teh games are hidden is 14x14, made up of 4 blocks per grid square (not shown for clarity purposes on the pic) 14x14x4 x2 = ~1500 hidey spaces

    2/0... I think trying to "manage" everyone's different 48hr dateline is going to be hard work for you. I think it would be better if you posted a big banner "ROUND 2"... let people post... then "ROUND 3"...48hrs later. etc. You decide whether you want to update the map/picture every 48hrs or not. But I think conducting rounds is the way to go.
