On the Subject of Complicated Wires

These wires aren't like the others. Some have stripes! That makes them completely different. The good news is that we've found a concise set of instructions on what to do about it! Maybe too concise...

  • Look at each wire: there is an LED above the wire and a space for a "★" symbol below the wire.
  • For each wire/LED/symbol combination, use the Venn diagram below to decide whether or not to cut the wire.
  • Each wire may be striped with multiple colors.
Letter Instruction
C Cut the wire
D Do not cut the wire
S Cut the wire if the last digit of the serial number is even
P Cut the wire if the bomb has a parallel port
B Cut the wire if the bomb has two or more batteries

See Appendix B for battery identification reference.
See Appendix C for port identification reference.
