Experiment Log - BH-54-C

This experiment aims to quantify Subject BH-54’s unpredictable shifts in temperature, as discovered in experiments BH-54-A and BH-54-B.

11:17 AM - Subject BH-54 submerged in containment unit, filled with distilled H2O

11:17 AM - Industry-grade mercury thermometer (±0.01 °F) introduced to containment unit

11:17 AM - Initial temperature recorded as ‘C’ (as per custom shorthand scale)

11:18 AM - Temperature has dropped by 3.6 °F

11:19 AM - Temperature has increased by 5.4 °F

11:20 AM - Temperature has increased sharply, by 30.6 °F

11:21 AM - Temperature has dropped sharply, by 32.4 °F

11.22 AM - Temperature has risen again, by 21.6 °F

11:23 AM - Temperature continues to rise, by 10.8 °F

11:24 AM - Temperature drops slowly, by 3.6 °F

11:25 AM - No temperature change recorded

11:26 AM - No temperature change recorded

11:27 AM - No temperature change recorded.  Temperature measurements have levelled out.  Any chemical reactions caused by BH-54’s introduction into water appear to have ceased.

Day 8


Day 9

Blitzen, Comet, Dancer and Prancer each have a spot in a four-reindeer stable.
Each reindeer has decorated their living quarters with their favorite colour: black, green, gold, or red.
Additionally, Santa’s elves are tasked with ensuring they all have a steady supply of their favorite foods: apricots, apples, cherries, and olives.
One of the reindeers is very competitive – his favorite colour is gold, and he insists on being as close to the front of the stable as possible.
Comet cannot stand the smell of olives, and refuses to be kept next to the reindeer who eats them all the time.
From time to time, some of Santa’s elves have to clean up the pile of cherry pits at the very back of the stable.
Although Prancer’s favorite colour is red, his favorite food is neither apples nor cherries.
Comet and Prancer are close friends, and live in adjacent stables.
The reindeer who eats olives has decorated his stable with his favorite colour: green.
Dancer is not particularly fond of apricots or olives.
Starting from the front, Blitzen is the third reindeer in the stable.
Interestingly, when each reindeer’s name, favorite color, and favorite food are properly aligned, their greatest fear is revealed.
What is the reindeers’ greatest fear?

These puzzles were not created by me. They were created by the Game Detectives and used in the 2018 ARGVent. The reason why these have been archived here is because the puzzles are no longer available to view after the event ends. This is intended to allow people who like these puzzles to continue solving them even after the time has ended. No answers are provided as this would be cheating.
