On the Subject of N&Ns
There’s some M’s in this house! There’s some M’s in this house!
If the status light is not in the top-left, you are looking at a different module.
Press the correct button in each of the 5 stages to solve the module. Pressing any button incorrectly will incur a strike and reset the module back to stage 1. The stage the module is currently on can be determined with which button is colored cyan.
Throughout this manual, the buttons are associated with the numbers 1 to 5 based on their position from left to right.
For each number k in the set of numbers 1 to 5, count how many of the kth characters of each button are Ns. Press the button that is the position of the value of k for which there is a unique number of Ns.
Treat N as a 0 and M as a 1. Each button will contain a binary number that can be converted to a letter using A0Z25. These letters spell out a scrambled word from the following word bank, with one extra. Press the button with the extra letter.
In this stage, each button will have a unique color.
Take the serial number, but ignore one character, based on the color not present:
- Red: 1st character
- Green: 2nd character
- Orange: 3rd character
- Blue: 4th character
- Yellow: 5th character
- Brown: 6th character
Treat the remaining characters as base-36. If the first character is even, the first bit of your “target sequence” is an M, and an N if it is odd, and so on.
Treat the set of all letters on the module as a 5×5 torus (it wraps around in all directions), with button 5 giving the top row, button 4 giving the 2nd row, etc.
