On the subject of math puzzles, I was wondering--how many of you actually play math puzzles of all types, instead of using the skip option (if provided)?
I am working on one where the player will have to do mathematical operations in Base 2, 3, and 16, and I was wondering how many people would actually attempt to do the puzzles instead of delegating to the science officer.
I've been thinking about doing one in base-20.
@Nagorak: it's the number of possible digits per character. We use decimal(base-10) most often. Hexadecimal(often used in computing) is base-16.
