TIME PARADOX
How to get the best out of our hint system
Each hint for clues will be provided in the order most ideal to solve, however you may have solved these in a different order, make sure you have given all parts of the envelope a go before getting a hint on just one part, you may need to solve an alternate clue to lead onto the other.
If you have given all parts a go and it's time for some help please scroll on down, but wait! not too fast! If you want just a hint then scroll down only until you see the hint, if you keep scrolling it will then tell you how to solve the puzzle and then onto the answer of that puzzle, and then onto the next part of the envelope game of which will repeat the same system finally onto the envelope answer.
