I just joined, and honestly am not well-versed in code in general, but this was much harder compared to other puzzles marked easy.

This is my first community puzzle, but it seems a level above the official puzzles I have done so far. Have I just been sticking to truly baby-level stuff so far and this really is easy compared to other levels, or is this miscategorized?

I would say it is easy when compared with most puzzles in harder levels.

As a general tip, if you want to see how easy the other puzzles you did were, you can look here:
CG Activity – Puzzles by category (chadok.info)

And click on “Easy”, and sort by success ratio

Re this puzzle specifically: My opinion (as the creator :slight_smile: ), is that it’s kinda tricky. It took me a while to write and solve it.

One other general tip, if you are just starting, is to do the Clashes (but with no time deadline).

You won’t get Codingame points for that, but it’s a nice (no pressure) approach to work up to “Classic Puzzles”:

Thank you for the links! They seem really useful!

I have an issue with this game.
Every tests pass but when I submit, the test 9 fails and I don’t know why.
Can anybody read my code?


Hi olivotu –
Thanks for playing my puzzle. Sure send me your code privately, and I’ll have a look.

I had the same issue as @olivotu all test passed and only the validator 9 failed.

When I copied the alphabets to my code and turned them into arrays of strings I used a quick substitution command to add quotes around the words and my command messed up New-York and X-ray because of the -

Maybe that will help someone in the future.
