Week 5 - Solution: The Creased Parchment
Welcome back to SQ Pow! We hope you've enjoyed this week's puzzle, and would love to hear what you thought was challenging, what you figured out, and how you stretched your mind with this puzzle. If you're still working on it, STOP HERE! Spoiler Alert: We WILL discuss the solution to the puzzle in this post, so if you don't want to see it now, come back later!
You'll see in BJK GOAT's video that he noticed some things both visually and in the title / wording of this puzzle. (At Silverquicken, we always talk about noticing... what do you see? What do you notice?) BJK GOAT noticed:
- There are faint lines separating the square into 4 quadrants;
- The letters are in different orientations depending on which quadrant they're in; and
- The name of the puzzle is "The Creased Parchment", so he thought the lines must signify creases, or folds, in the paper.
So he tested that theory, and folded the paper. See how he moved through solving it from that point...

We hope you had fun with this one, and can't wait to see you for the next SQ Pow! puzzle of the week, which will release tomorrow.
Thanks for always puzzling with us!
