coverPlease do NOT post your answers, but do say if you think you have solved the puzzles and how long it took. Solution on Monday.

What is the connection between these times:







I have produced an ebook containing 101 of the previous Friday Puzzles! It is called PUZZLED and is available for the Kindle(UKhere and USA here) and on the iBookstore (UK here in the USA here). You can try 101 of the puzzles for free here.


  1. I can think of at least ten different answers in less than a minute, not one of which is likely to be the real one

  2. I’m stumped (as per usual).

    It can’t be angles, it’s not the length of the times when spelled out, I don’t think it’s anything along the lines of a = 1, b = 2 etc. It also doesn’t appear to be anything to do with mirroring the times (whether displayed on an analogue or digital clock), symmetry, the number of straight / curved lines in the numbers or moving matchsticks – all of which have been behind solutions to previous numerical puzzles.

  3. Hooray, I didn’t get it straightaway so it’s pencil and paper time,
    though the numbers coincide with the prices on my last receipt from the supermarket

    1. ok it took me 2 x 10 min’s to give it the ko
      8:05, half past two-ish, 20:08, November 2010 etc

  4. Found a hint by googling too, and I’m pretty sure I’ve got it. Had to laugh at one response I found that simply accused the asker of cheating on his homework.

  5. After watching tv, a thought popped into my head and it must be the right answer. Yippee, so easy when you see it

    1. Oh your god, if this hint points to the “true” answer, it is by far and a way the dumbest riddle I have ever seen anywhere
