Puzzles for the Road

What on earth is that?
You bought snacks for the tummy, I bought snacks for the mind.
...tsk tsk... that's no "snack for the mind". It's merely a crumb. I bet I could solve all those with my eyes closed.
Great. You keep your eyes on the road, then, and I'll read through this... OOH! Hmm... interesting...
What is it? Let me see!
Aht! Eyes closed! Remember??

This magazine was inspired by the cheap puzzle books often found in stores that are both fun and frustrating. Some of the puzzles are satisfying, while others are kinda trash. There are also some mediocre ones thrown into the mix, and 'puzzles' that are hardly considered anything but. Stretch to say they're riddles? More like...did they run out of ideas? And some are just math problems. XD No matter what you find in Puzzles for the Road, I pray you enjoy! As noted at the end of the book, if you come up with any answers not listed, or feel that anything is wrong, don't hesitate to let me know! I won't at all be offended. I am honored you took the time to try and solve, and that you care about it enough to interact with it further.
  For more fun, click over to The Road Trip where you can observe the puzzling shenanigans of Someone and Constance as they attempt to solve the book. Also, check out Puzzles on the Road- The One-Shot TTRPG Experience to play with a party on a puzzly road trip of your own!

Feel free to use, print, play, share, or whatever have you! If you'd like to support, a pay-what-you-want item can be found in my in my Ko-Fi shop. All tips are appreciated, but snagging the game for $0 is not discouraged! Thanks for reading and checking it out.

I love this idea so much! I had so much fun doing these, sadly, I wasn't able to solve all of them, but great job. These were all amazing, and reminded me of all of the puzzle books that I did or am doing or have yet to finish. The only thing I'm confused about is the Diagonal Surrender. What was the goal of the puzzle, and then what does the answer "You know the rules. Never give up." mean?

Well, if you play it on a piano does it make some sort of song? that's really popular and has the lyrics of "You know the rules. Never give up." ?

Lol, I skipped past your warning, but I don't really care. This is awesome, I'm definitely going to try this sometime. Just a quick question, can I print it from the PDF download as long as I only use it myself?

Lilliana Casper   I don't comment much, but I love reading your articles! Please check out my worlds, Jerde and Tread of Darkness.

Feel free to print and share! If you'd like to support, I have a pay-what-you-want option on my kofi, but it's totally fine to use it wherever. I guess I'll add that verbiage so people can know and not be confused. Thanks so much for asking! <3
