Words with numbers

Postby Deedasmi » Thu Mar 22, 2012 8:00 pm

Hey all, I'm wanting to start an expiramental game. I will give examples, but no way to find the answer.

Person 1 says a string of characters or words, person 2 gives a number.

This is similiar to Green Glass Doors in that it actually has an answer, but you have to figure out how to find the answer

This is a sentance.

The answer is 1845

Test 2

This answer is 498

Another example!

The answer here is 1557

Hints:
It takes a little bit of work to find the answer
Case matters!


I have not seen this game anywhere before, so if google helps you, someone stole my idea : /


I'll start. My string is

zyq3

What is the answer?

Ditto lol numbers are pretty arbitrary to me when it comes to getting letters out of them, apart from which letter they are in the sequence of the alphabet.

I was able to find the answer to "Test 2" by calculating each character's number in relation to their place in the alphabet, then alternating between multiplication and addition, then multiplying by the number of characters (or adding, if you were to keep in line with the original pattern), then adding the number of characters. So -
Test 2
20 x 5 + 19 x 20 + 2 x 6 (number of characters, including spaces) + 6 = 498

Then I tried the other examples using the same pattern, but it didn't work, so I gave up. Probably because of the case matters thing, or my entire algorithm is wrong, and I just got that one correct by a fluke. :P

Hints plz.
