For sending your answers, please use the prepared answering form. If you want your answering form to work properly, it is necessary to allow cookies in your browser. Make sure you have it set up properly. Your answers can be sent as many times as you need during the time limit. If you find out you sent a wrong answer, you can send a new one. Only the last sent solution will be taken into account (even if the last solution is wrong and the previous solution was correct). Send the answers as a row of numbers without gaps, commas or any other signs. It is not possible to send the answers after the time limit termination. Be careful and enter your answers in time, so as you do not miss sending the answers of the puzzles you have solved! In the answering form there are always several input areas marked with Answer X (X is a letter - A, B, C, etc.) and in the puzzles there are marked lines/columns that are needed to be sent. These lines, columns or sectors are marked with the letter and arrow. The letter at the arrow is the same as the letter of the answer in the form.

Answer A: 387124569
Answer B: 329586147

The answer must be always written from left to right if you mark the line, from the top to the bottom if you mark the column!
