Q. Image a digital clock. How many times in a day will the clock display three or more of the same number in a row. This is using the standard 12 hr. clock rather than military time. eg. 3.33.

Been a while since I did it but seem to remember it being 34 :?

I got a headache from doing this the last time!

Why would it be 47?

If it's in 24 hours, and it's on a 12 hour clock eg midnight = 12.

How could it be an odd number considering you would need to work out from 12 till 11.59 them double it?

It is not 47 - sorry. I have entered the correct answer into the game and it told me I was correct.

I got 46 at my first attempt too!

I have the US version, but have prepaid for the UK one from Play (released in November).

34 sounds about right. then 10 starting from 11.10, the 5 early ones ie 1.11, 2.22 etc that's 15, then 10.00, and 12.22, that's 17. double that is 34 in 24 hours.

SLightly off topic, why HAS this game taken so long to get over here from the US?

I've also played the US version, and got all of the downloadable puzzles too. Has anybody got those? The one about the knight and the thing he couldn't kill had me for weeks!!

Can you get the downloadable puzzles via the internet or does it have to be WiFi direct to the DS?

It is a great game. Being an adult, it is a bit on the childish level, but I suppose that it is aimed at kids. I like puzzles that make me think.

00:00

00:00 would only appear on a 24 hour clock, and the poster says it's a 12 hour clock. so midnight would be 12:00.

Solution
IGN
There are a total of 17 of such combinations in a 12-hour period: 12:22, 01:11, 02:22, 03:33, 04:44, 05:55, 10:00, 11:10, 11:11, 11:12, 11:13, 11:14, 11:15, 11:16, 11:17, 11:18, 11:19. Multiply 17 by 2 and you get 34.
