Hello Chantelle. Did you take a look at the official walkthrough? Which part of the puzzle are you struggling with?

ive looked at the walkthough and im confuesd please help

Hello @hoolie. Which part did you get stuck on? Did you find the marked cell? Did you start deciphering the trees?

I am confused on The Map, the walkthrough clue…for the Y axis we assigned the trees the number 9,0, 1 and then the paragraph states “And according to the second Axis Rule, the two trees before those should be the two numbers before 9 (in order)” I understand that to mean the numbers 7 & 8. In the next paragraph it read that the “three numbers remaining to be assigned: 5, 6, 7. And they go to the three lefthand trees still waiting for assignments.” I must have misunderstood the paragraph and I should not have use the number 7 & 8. So what I am saying is I am struck. Any clues or hints would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi vj. Every tree must be assigned to a digit from 0 to 9, so that the resulting numbers on the xaxis are increasing from left to right and the resulting numbers on the yaxis are increasing from bottom to top (there is only one way to do this). This is a fun rebus and I recommend you to think about it yourself. If you don’t figure it out, feel free to add me as a connection and I will send you the correct answer:)


sir I have read everything on the official walkthrough and everything written here 15 times and I still can’t understand a single thing. I’m so ashamed. please help meeee

Hi M. Did you get the idea with trees representing digits? You need to replace every tree with 09, so that you get consecutive 2digit numbers along both the xaxis and the yaxis.


I can’t solve the map. Deciphering all the trees has proven impossible. How can I contact the administrator? I need help.

Hey Paula, feel free to share your work either here or with me via PM and I will help.

Maybe it is harder for me because my mother language is not English . I figured out the numbers of individual trees like 9,0,1,2,3 but no pairs. It’s proving to be to complicated.


Can you send me the code? I’ve spent a long time on the map but I can’t figure out how to crack it

ITS Ashmed of me to say this but I am also not able to crsckit out


Need clarification on the trees, I understand x axis vs y axis. So each tree 9,0,1,2,3 how is the 2nd number determined

Hello Sabrina,
You need to ensure that the resulting 2digit numbers are consecutive along the xaxis and the yaxis. This condition renders just one combination viable:)


So the xaxis should be 09,10,11,12,13 is that correct

The first digits along the xaxis are not necessarily 0/1, but otherwise, yes, the numbers are X9, (X+1)0, (X+1)1, (X+1)2, (X+1)3.



Hello Ur,
I just sent you the code. There were some bugs with PMs recently, but they should have been fixed. Let me know if there are any issues:)
