This puzzle series was inspired by ePeterso2’s series “Puzzle Solving 101”. Even though the traditional method of learning is the best, there is always something to be said about taking shortcuts. This series should be a sort of “Cliff Notes” for those that would like to get some of the pesky “?”s on their solved list. Follow along and make sure you keep the final coordinates for each one of these puzzles because they will help you to solve the final puzzle.
