  • Bento help

    The bento boxes are random, so there are no spoilers for them. If you would like help with solving a bento puzzle, you need to post the clues in a way that is very clear to us. Here are some examples (the dots are necessary to keep the spacing):

    bear..............blank.................pig
    cat/rice..........egg...................blank

    or

    bunny..............rice
    .......................cat/egg
    .......................blank

    or

    pig
    sandwich
    blank.................bear/egg


    Each box has 9 items; three different animals, and each animal has an egg, rice, and sandwich version. If you look at each clue, you can see where they overlap.

    Here is a made up example:

    Clue 1:
    bunny/egg.............blank...............cat
    bear......................cat/rice............blank
    cat/sandwich.........bear/rice...........blank

    Clue 2:
    bear/egg..........cat/egg
    .......................bunny

    Clue 3:
    sandwich
    cat.......................rice.................san dwich

    (This is probably too easy an example, but I'm making it up in my head.)

    So you would start with the largest clue. Then, looking at the second clue, it can't fit with the bear in the second row because the cat/rice and cat/egg cannot be in the same place. The only place that works for that shape where pieces don't overlap are starting with the blank in the middle of the top row. Then the third clue can only start in the first box of the first or second row because of the shape, but it would have to start in the second row. And so you have:

    bunny/egg................bear/egg...............cat/egg
    bear/sandwich...........cat/rice.................bunny/?
    cat/sandwich.............bear/rice...............?/sandwich

    Since there are 3 cats and three bears, the ?/sandwich has to be bunny, and that leaves rice for the bunny/?
