]]>The Wikipedia page indeed did not state anything about repeating questions. If I impose a restriction on the puzzle, such as one question per God, it would make the puzzle even harder. How would you go about solving that?

Also, I personally think asking a god the same question twice is not a good strategy, because if you turn out to be asking random twice, one is done for.

I look forward to your thoughts, thanks in advance.

There's a list of several of them: https://game-space.org/category/solve-puzzles/

]]>Mr. Jones hates flying, which means he did not take a plane.

Cindy had to rent her vehicle, which means she did not take a ship (since ships cannot be rented casually).

John gets seasick, which means he did not travel by ship.

Considering these facts and the options available (train, car, plane, ship), we can derive the following:

Mr. Jones must have travelled by train or car, but since Cindy had to rent her vehicle, we can deduce that she rented a car, hence Mr. Jones took the train.

Cindy rented a vehicle, which as deduced earlier, must have been a car.

John did not travel by ship due to his seasickness, and since the plane and car options are already taken, he must have travelled by train.

Rachel, as the last person, took the only remaining option, which is the ship.

So, to summarize:

Mr. Jones travelled by train.

Cindy travelled by car.

John travelled by train.

Rachel travelled by ship.

Can anyone find a simple edit that makes the solution unique?

Here's a simple edit to Clue 5 that produces a unique solution by replacing 'To the right of' with 'Next':

5. Next to the ship carrying cocoa is a ship going to Marseille.

Clues 7, 11 & 14 also use 'next'.

Some of these geometric writing systems gives more freedom on the letters' size, position, or shapes, such as Exprish or Circular Gallifreyan. Others may used a fixed shape for each letter, such as Graph Script and ABB Gallifreyan.

In this challenge, you are given a code that should be copied and pasted into Desmos. Then, try to read what you see on the graph as a text in one of the conscript ciphers.

You may also try transcribing a piece of text you like in one of the conscript ciphers using math equations, and copying the equations from Desmos line by line into a text file.

For example, this code decodes to "ColorfulGalaxy" in Circular Gallifreyan.

Hint: It's written in Timescript.

Notes on the code in the first task:**1**. The "u" variable indicates time. Click the button below the play button on Desmos and set the cycling mode to "one-way cycle" (the second option) instead of "round-trip cycle" in order that the shapes do not travel in the wrong direction. The period of the rotation is 128 in this case.**2**. The reason why the time variable is not named "t" is that "t" is ambiguous. If "t" is used, then Desmos may wrongly render the /h/ (h in house) phoneme symbol as lines or circles instead of the expected dots in the chart.**3**. The built-in function "mod" on Desmos proved to be buggy. Therefore, the self-defined "f_mod" function is used, though it doesn't actually work the same way as the "mod" function.**4**. If you want to transcribe your own piece of text, we suggest that you should not make the left side of the equation consist of a single variable name or a single function call unless when you are actually defining variables or functions. Try swapping the sides of the equations. See also this post.**5**. Please zoom out a little to see the whole shape. However, for some reason (probably a bug), the symbol representing the "l" in the last word may flicker (or simply vanish) even when the graph is zoomed out slightly.**6**. If you want to transcribe your text in Timescript, you can use the following template:

```
u=0

f_{ry}\left(x,y,\theta\right)=y\cos\theta-x\sin\theta
