Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The key is to look at the symbols. Do any of the runes have something in common?

There should be three runes in the left box and four in the right.

Use the stylus to find out what the runes have in common. Try tracing the symbols on each rune.

Some of the runes may be written out using a single pen stroke that never retraces itself. You should be able to sort them out now.
