Try it, took quite some time before I solved it ;)
"Can you crack the code?"

*this isn't old for me*
Don't spoil the fun by telling how to crack it... :)

i really don't want to come off as a smart ass but I had it solved after the third try (~20 secs.). I won't comment on anything regarding the solution tho in order avoid spoiling :P

But I can hardly believe that somebody can't solve it for a year.

Anyway good luck for the rest and have fun :D

wow, it took me about 10 seconds to figure out, extremely simple once you think think it over for a second.

You're talking about the background, and obviously you dont understand what he meant in that sentence.

It had taken Dr. Duke well over a year himself, and he would always explain that the smarter you were, the longer it took to figure it out.


Basically, what that means that smarter people would be looking for complex mathematical solutions, rather than being creative and trying simple more 'artistic' solutions. But that has nothing to do with someone's IQ, rather with one's view, as said here

The game can be used as an example of how different people look at the world differently, and how these different ways of looking can yield different answers.

Its not so much about being smart or not, but about how restricted you are in terms of thinking outside the box.
