Lock In Puzzle 4: Missing Links

by | published Monday, May 18, 2020

Lots of conspiracy theories running around out there. But there are some connections everyone has missed—everyone, that is, except me. And now I’m going to let you in on the secret.

The eighteen games shown below sure look like they could never have anything in common. That’s what they want you to think! But there’s a deeper meaning linking them all, I assure you. First, pair up each game in Column A with a game in Column B. I can’t give too much away (they’re having me watched)–all you need to know is you’ll use the same method to connect each of the nine pairs.

The next step is to take those nine connections and enter each one into a row of the grid, one letter to a square. If you’ve correctly sussed everything out, the shaded squares will spell out two words. Those two words can be linked together using the same method from before to reveal the final missing link—which is the heart of the conspiracy and the answer to the puzzle.

Have fun, and stay frosty out there, kiddos! The answer will be posted next week.
