#NFT WL Puzzle Solution #0054

Join our discord neonplexus.io/discord to hangout with us!

Ok I’m back … to help you solve another puzzle our amazing community has already solved in hopes you read until the end.

This pseudo suduko puzzle is something we just made up. Let us know what you think!

pseudo suduko - Whitelist Event 54 (“/wl-event 54”)

1. Start with sudoku
2. Groups: left to right, top to bottom
3. all access codes are lowercase
4. Group 1 then group 2 -> 2xPLAZA
5. Group 3 then group 4 -> 2xPLAZA
6. Group 5 then group 6 -> 2xPLAZA
7. Group 7 then group 8 -> 2xPLAZA
8. #0053
9. {row 6} then {serial_num_design_city} -> UNDERGROUND

First we need to understand how to play sudoku. If we haven’t done that, we are already blocked!

Next we need to realize this is an 8x8 sudoku grid (not normal 9x9) so there are 8 unique characters / numbers. The grouping of the cells is also none standard, but there is still 8 cells per group.

Lastly, from playing ALL of our 59 NEON PLEXUS puzzles and being aware our /access {CODE} command. We realize ALL of our access codes are in this format “XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX” where X is is most characters (with few minor irrelevant exceptions) and IS case sensitive.

ps., I would use Google Sheets for this personally, but to each their own.

OK. Let’s solve it!
1. Solve the sudoku puzzle using these characters (see video above on how to play sudoku) in something like Google Sheets. You could temporarily convert the characters into numbers to make this part easier, but should be fine as is also.

Ok now lets solve one of the PLAZA access codes. Remember important the clues!

2. Groups: left to right, top to bottom
3. all access codes are lowercase
4. Group 1 then group 2 -> 2xPLAZA

We have 2 groups in this puzzle. The cells are groups into blocks of 8 AND the blocks are grouped into full puzzle. Thus with all our prior understanding …

2. Groups: left to right, top to bottom -> 81 .. R7 .. VD .. 90 then 7R .. 90 .. 81 .. DV
3. Translate that into an access code format and make it lowercase and we get: 81r7-vd90-7r90-81dv

BOOM! We have our first access code! Sadly you need to have solved this before anyone else and it’s too late for this puzzle.

In this case why did it say “2xPLAZA”? Well, the first TWO unique discord users to solve that access code would have been awarded PLAZA. It’s a race!

Let’s skip the other 3 PLAZA access codes because they are obvious now. Here they are! (remember they are lowercase)

81r7-vd90-7r90-81dv
9vd8-0r71-d0v1-978r
18dv-7r09-07r9-1dv8
vd10-89r7-r978-0v1d

What about the other clues?

8. #0053
9. {row 6} then {serial_num_design_city} -> UNDERGROUND

Well #0053 is referring us to the previous puzzle #0053! Part of that puzzle was to get the find the serial number of Blade Runner Nexus models to collect more clues. I won’t review that here to reduce confusion, but these are the serials you would have needed to find.

Rachael: N7FAA52318
Freysa Sadeghpour: DRV09817
Sapper Morton: N8PSD32974
Zhora Salome: N6FAB61216
Leon Kowalski: N6MAC41717
Pris Stratton: N6FAB21416
Roy Batty: N6MAA10816
K: KD6–3.7

Notice anything that might be useful?

4. We notice the serial number DRV09817 are the SAME characters used in our puzzle! Now we need the design city of the Freysa Sadeghpour model! Which turns out to be Shenyang.
5. Row 6 is easy. Just take the characters from row 6! DVR91078
6. Now combine them as the clue demands of us into an access code: DVR9-1078-Shen-yang

WHAT it didn’t work! Oh I forgot the other rules still apply…

3. all access codes are lowercase

7. Attempt number two. All lowercase access code: dvr9-1078-shen-yang

Well DONE!

Now let’s see if you have been paying attention again… You could be rewarded with PLAZA and/or UNDΞRGROUND access if YOU can SOLVE Puzzle #0060 in this medium post before 9 other readers who made it this far. 8 PLAZA and 1 UNDΞRGROUND up for grabs!

7. ▒ ▒▒▒▒ ▒▒▒▒▒▒ ▒▒▒▒▒ ▒▒▒.
8. ▒▒▒▒▒ ▒▒▒ + RIGHT(16 Left to Right Top to Bottom, ?) -> UNDERGROUND

ADDITIONAL/UPDATED CLUES! 👀

4.b /teaser
6.a column_x = columns 1 through 8 of the 2 sudoku solutions stacked vertically (see other clues)
6.b ? = a number of characters to complete the access code

GL!
