Found the first link, but the next page confused me. Not sure how to start with that crossword, with all the words crossed out..

Stupid me, now I understood the crossed out words! Ha ha, so silly to not see it at once 😂 Trying to solve the puzzle then (I'm norwegian,not used to solve english puzzles )

Just started watching QI and love the programme (on episode 3 of P). I follow qikipedia on twitter and was alerted to the Pandora puzzle from Pandora's twitter account.
I managed to work out that the different surnames of Pandora from the first 8 episodes have special meaning and I've worked these out.

However I feel I'm missing something fundamental when trying to work out the missing letters of the link "www.qi.com/p_______".

Yes there are 16 boxes, I had assumed the full words were to be written in the boxes according to the symbol at the start. But that can't be it? And "draw each stripe" suggests something else but not sure what (currently figuring out what this even means)!
I cringe posting on here as I'm seeing that some of you have already figured it out ... So a hint, no matter how cryptic would be much appreciated :-)

Only the first four episodes relate to the "draw each stripe" puzzle.

The orientation of the magnifying glasses is significant. :)

I knew it! but assumed had to be something else so didn't try. Thanks I think I've got it. How very fun!

Stineiren: Weirdly enough the second page made much more sense to me compared to the first page!
I'm enjoying this surprisingly more than I expected.
thanks to all Sx

What next? The second page just talks about "check here after October 22nd". There's an obvious 9-letter P word which is one of the "coming soon" clues, but putting that after qi.com results in a 404.

Is anyone else working on the third puzzle? I am completely stumped. I have Pandoraís surname clues from episodes 9-12, I can match the letters, but I canít figure out how to fill in the grid.

It's a classic logic grid puzzle, the kind you'll see regularly in puzzle magazines. They're relatively easy to solve once you've done one or two. Have a look at this page for a good guide on how to solve them :)

I'm currently stuck on the final puzzle. I've worked out the surnames for episode 13-16 and successfully filled in the grid accordingly - but I've no idea how to get the final URL. Part of the puzzle is hidden until February 22nd so I'm guessing I'll have to wait until then.

I only discovered the whole pandora puzzle quest this morning, and I've had a thoroughly enjoyable day solving through to the final.

I've worked out the 15th and 16th names and solved that bit but confess I can't work out how that relates to the bottom bit, or what it refers to so a bit stuck now.

Desperate for some clues or help on the last puzzle, had it open for days but for the life of me I cant work out what I'm supposed to do. Made an account just to ask for some help! P for Please!?
