These things are the bane of my existence when I play AC. I am going back to play through AC2 and Brotherhood this Summer before Revelations. I don't remember the solutions to some puzzles. And I'm not looking for specific answers.
What I'm looking for is tips on how to think my way through them so I can solve them on my own. I remember staring at that Sumerian number puzzle in AC2 for an hour before I gave up and looked online for the solution. Or the one in Brotherhood with Mount Washington and the coordinates code wheel.
How can I better think my way through these puzzles so I have the satisfaction of figuring them out on my own?
Or is everyone just as stuck on these as I am?
