What is it?

You’ll have a week to solve a daily puzzle crafted by one of the most wise wizards, Omarn Brewstone. Each puzzle solved will give you one point. At the end of the week, the person with the highest points will be chosen as the winner. If a tie were to happen, then one winner will be drawn from the list.

You will have 2 tries for a single puzzle before you are no longer able to guess again for that certain puzzle. Please also make sure to add a well-written description of how you obtained the answer. (Including tools used, if any)
