play tv tv3

    I was up all night, not feeling well! I came accross play tv on tv3. <snip> But i was glued to it, why??? I don't know why but i really wanted to know the solution to the puzzle.

    The puzzle was this. On the TV there was a picture of katie holmes, and on the picture were 7 hearts. Each heart had hearts inside them. So the puzzle was to count the hearts and see how many there was and then phone in with your answer. When you counted them you got 22hearts. 99% of callers said 22 but were told they were incorrect. Now after 2hours (and a drawn out 2hrs at that) and 100s of incorrect callers the answer was revealed! It was 119 hearts! WTF i thought, waiting for the solution. But the bugger never revealed the solution.

    Did anyone else see this? How was the answer 119????

    Discussion of Play TV is forbidden. Is this forum moderated at all? :pac:

    I'm sure this forum is moderated and I would imagine any references to scam etc will be pulled.

    However your link to the announcement is an announcement placed solely in the TV forum and would apply to the TV forum alone.

    Perhaps the same rule should be brought in here for the same reasons but as of yet it hasn't. Most threads here start as discussions of the puzzles themselves and not play tv although it would appear they can disintegrate.

    God give me a break! I'm asking for a solution to a puzzle, not looking to discuss the program.

    Stop been so anal!!!

    exactly - this is the puzzles & quizzes forum and here they/we are more interested in discussing and solving the problems than discussing Play TV

    Can we keep the discussion to the puzzles and only the puzzles please.
