Puzzle 41 - Cutting Corners

A fun way to solve this as you follow the directions in the car chase in the Final episode of Alcatraz Season 1

Puzzle 42 - One-Eyed Royal

Simply follow the line of the eyes of the three cards and use the corresponding letters.

The clue of course being, "it's all in the eyes"

Puzzle 43 - Picture This

Arrange the pictures so the blocks line up.

Then take each column of blocks and rearrange into the column number order and read the answer.

Puzzle 44 - Want ads

The puzzle clue is "Substitute", you need to swap some letters around -

O = D
D = O
U = E
E = U
P = A
A = P
Y = T
T = Y

Puzzle 45 - Solitary Man

A very clever way to finish the set of puzzles and it had us guessing all day.

The answer was obtained by waiting for the times scratched into the wall, and as Alcatraz is in San Francisco it was Pacific time of course.

The shadow of the window bars lined up with a letter at the specified time to spell the very appropriate final word.

The image used above to circle the letters was originally posted in the comments by LeeL.

I'm in the UK and didn't stay up to see where the cross landed at those times, but it is the correct answer.

The second image is a composite of all the actual times created from pictures sent in by ObFuSc8


  1. great way to end the games! I like how the last answer coincides with the end of something... :)

  2. That last puzzle required patience and was difficult to guess since it is a Japanese word. Too cool for school!

  3. Zort -- I saved pics for each of the times:letters for Puzzle #45 & will email them to you in the morning.

  4. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone here on their help and insight into the puzzles. I hope they do it again for next season as they were very addictive.

  5. It has been fun, really hoping for a season 2.

    I'll post a roundup of the whole campaign sometime soon.

  6. Hey Zort
    Haven't been here much. Not very good a puzzles and I don't know what I'd do with a Mustang if I won it. Good luck to everyone who's trying for it.
