On the Subject of Morse-A-Maze
It is AMazing that the status light got a life of its own.
- Decode the Morse code from the blinking status light. Off state is green, On state is red.**
- The first thing transmitted is the word used to find the maze.
- The second thing transmitted is the coordinates the status light needs to be placed on. Coordinates are a letter from A–F, representing columns, followed by a number from 1–6, representing rows. The upper left is A1.
- If the word is listed in Table 1, use the corresponding information in the table to determine which maze to look up. If the number you get is greater than 17, keep subtracting 18 until you are in the range of 0–17.
- Otherwise, look up the word in Tables 2 and 3.
- Warning: Do not cross the lines shown in the maze. These lines are invisible on the bomb.
- If there is an unlit BOB indicator and 4 batteries in 3 holders in the configuration of 2×AA and 2×D, Bob will actively prevent you from earning any strikes. Thanks Bob.
