Solitaire of Nostradamus
Disguise the secrets of the fate and learn what the future has in store for the humanity with The Solitaire of Nostradamus. Take to the ancient numbers patience used by Nostradamus to calculate the dates of historic events and prove him wrong.
…The Great Mover renews the ages:
Rain, blood, milk, famine, steel and plague,
Is the heavens fire seen, a long spark running.
(Nostradamus, The Prophecies, C2-Q46)
The dark prophecies of the Middle Age scholar agitated the minds ever since they were published. Yet few people know that the Great Mover of Ages he mentioned in his quatrains renews every 2160 years. The great foreteller couldn’t see ahead of 2012. Use his solitaire and try to make it more. Give a chance to the mankind.
The rules are easy to comprehend. Face eight columns of figures with digits 0 – 9 written randomly in each. Remove pairs of neighboring digits which differ in one (e.g. 2 and 3, 8 and 7). The major of them makes the tens, the minor is taken as units. These two-digit numbers are summed up to an important year in the human history. When no possible variants are left on the field, you receive the Chance of Ages. It is a possibility to remove any pair of subsequent numbers on the field. It is given only once, so choose wisely.
Your any prediction is followed with historical reference, so this numeric puzzle can be very educational. Learn about important events of the modern era and endeavor to look into the future.
