Well, here I am ... stuck again. These puzzles have definitely taken a difficulty plunge. The symbols here don't appear to be what they first seem and I've explored several other possibilities without success. I've looked at the title which gave me a few more ideas but again, nothing. I think I'm need of a few kind words from bimbogami again.

What is your thinking so far on what the symbols are?

My first thought was international maritime flags but then there are a few which don't exist and some look like national flags. Also, I found if I stared long enough, I could see numbers if I just picked out certain colours. Also tried flipping and rotating to see if it made things any clearer. The layout also looked like a certain game show which could've been hinted at by the title, but the year I used wasn't accepted.

You certainly have at least one good idea in there, maybe you should run that up the...

For info, we're looking for a little more detail than just a year here.

I've revisited all my previous ideas and am still running across the same problems. I can identify some but not all of the flags - some are close but differ in colour, others don't seem to exist at all. Again, I've rotated and flipped, inverted and squinted but I'm not getting any closer.

I've looked again at the gameshow idea but can only find a date for the US version (which isn't the answer) but cannot pinpoint an exact date for the UK version.

bimbogami apologises for his absence, I am his loyal disciple, he gave me this message to give you:

look to the symbols
you will find them all
since ancient times man has always found ways to communicate
Bimbogami does not watch TV

I'm not sure what he means, but hopefully this will help you in your quest

Humbly.

It most certainly did - thank you for passing the message on. Smile

Really need help with this one.
I look at flag alphabet, but there are flags that missing.
Try to look for a pattern. Didnīt find anything.
Can you push me in the right direction?

That's what makes this one harder, it's a specific message, but i guess you know the area of what you are looking at.

From the question, you know that Bimbogami is looking for a date.
That means this question is probably related to something in history.

Perhaps these two things will help you bimbogoogle a little better...

MorFF's previous post is a good help. This is a specific message, coded a specific way...

i have been stuck on this one for weeks now.

I get what the symbols are and what they represent. I get that its not the obvious representations i should be looking for but for other messages. This is also something i possibly understand if doubles is the way forward.

I am colourblind but that is not helping like i thought it should.

I think this is where i finish this game im afraid Sad
