This is a enigma to reflect:
Epimênides is a Cretan who says: " All Cretans are liars. "
He is telling the truth or lying ? :smt047

What a great game! Hopefully I didn't just blunder onto a closed game. I think I've got the answer. I'll PM it to Sam so in case I'm not allowed to play I won't disturb the game.

Sam, these are so lovely and poetical! Thanks for the translation and the original French. Very cool.

Uhm ... a pen? Seems a little general but it's the strongest answer I've got right now.

∞ 3DA wonders if THE SILENT KNOT is TSK's ninja assassin alter-ego. ∞
