The first twenty individuals who complete Tenth Leaf puzzles qualify for the Hall of Fame. The competition is extremely fierce, some of the greatest puzzle brains from all round the globe are competing for ranking!
In recognition of the difficulty of some of the puzzles, and the fact that the very act of completing one is quite a feat, I have now opened the Roll of Honour. All successful solutions to any of the Hall of Fame puzzles will now receive a score that is calculated according to a table which you can view here. Even if the entry is not ranked, there is a flat score for all correct entries. The combined scores from all of the puzzles is stored and displayed in the Roll of Honour. If you have previously completed a puzzle but not entered the Hall of Fame ranking, you can still get your points for completion by completing the puzzle again. Of course, only the first entry per person for any of the puzzles is stored in the Tenth Leaf database.
These puzzles are linked to form a story. Some are easy to solve, some fiendishly difficult. A variety of puzzle formats are used including riddles, ciphers, and graphical images. The puzzles are arranged in 10 chapters; intially all the chapters are locked except the first. To unlock each chapter you will have to crack all the puzzles. The first chapter puzzle that is avalable for the Hall of Fame and Roll of Honour is Chapter 5.
Not for the faint hearted, there's no holds barred! Keep your eyes open for the next one and see if you can be top of the Hall of Fame. Be warned - the competition is fierce! Some of the puzzles may require knowledge of the chapter puzzles. (Forum registration required).
It looks pretty bleak in the Tenthleaf house. There's no tree! Where's the decorations? It all looks so drab! This place needs a bit of festive colour to dispel all these somber tones. It's up to you to bring the place to life.
I think that this puzzle might be quite difficult, so dependent on how quickly the first answers roll in, I might apply a multiplier for the Roll of Honour.
This is a difficult puzzle. Although the Hall of Fame is now closed, you can still give it a try. All correct solutions will qualify for the new Roll of Honour.
Quite an easy one, but multidisciplinary - literature, science and just a tiny soupçon of mathematics. But don't despair - it's all googleable! This puzzle's Hall of Fame is closed, but correct entries will be entered into the Roll of Honour.
Forum registration required. No knowledge of the chapter puzzles required. These puzzles are rather easier than the "Genius" puzzles.
Weary after the first 5 chapters, the companions decide to take a holiday in the sun. Foolishly, they agree to take Uncle Slimjam along with them. You can imagine what mayhem results!

WHO YA GONNA CALL?
Why Bookworm and Melissa, of course!

A new kind of puzzle is in the pipeline. It's more than a puzzle, it's more of a game. It's linked into the Hall of Fame, but the ranking will depend on your Challenge high score - and it's repeatable. There will be two Hall of Fame pages "This week's best scores" and "All time best scores". This is an ambitious project so keep your eyes open for news.
Do you need to get a little edge to get that "working memory" fully honed? Try this implementation of the Japanese classic. It's got quite a few nifty features including a button that lets you check your progress, and a timer so you can play against yourself - just the thing for a coffee break!
