I've only had a couple hours to play with this, but I think I can say that those who enjoyed Curios & Conundrums Volume 3 will enjoy this.
I saw your post about this earlier and ordered it. I have it on my desk and I'm looking forward to working on it on my upcoming vacation. Now if I can only think of a way to keep the cats from walking on and/or lying on the pages when I spread them out over the living room floor.

I have established my place in the puzzle-solving pecking order for Vaults 1, 2 & 3.
Is any part of this specifically American? I took an educated guess that the bird was a jay and the symbol linked with this was walk cos you guys have jaywalking over there right? Not really a thing in the UK and the Walk sign isn't like that (and is really Go rather than Walk).
Reason I ask is some of these pictures in the Opening Puzzle seem rather obscure and the links...not very linky. And I don't know what the South picture on the top right of the top row is, a mirror? It feels like I'm fighting with picture identification rather than image linking to be honest.
So the Colophon notes the pictures were taken from The Noun Project - I thought I'd so a search there, maybe make my life a bit easier, and rapidly realised that was a terrible idea and there are thousands of icons and well, here's an example - so the top row I appear to have from this website, from left to right
I need to go back and revisit my Opening Puzzle. I know I have many mistakes in it, mostly in the bottom half, as many things still do not make sense to me.
I haven't figured out what that that boxy thing you describe in the top row is, either.
I do believe I did the same thing as you with the bird.
We managed to get enough of it figured out to guess at the solution, and we did find a path to follow from our guess. Let me know if you want to brainstorm on some of the picture combos..
I'm glad it's not just me, I haven't approached the middle bit yet....but ok, have posted my takes on the top row and left column for comments, will do the same on right column and bottom row later on...
Ah ok, so Go Kart then - the Scape I got from Scrape, from Scraper, from Ice Scraper, because it looks like one of those things I have to clear ice from my car windscreen. I guess then it's something Board and I just don't recognise it.
As I'm on a roll, I put together my right hand column too
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
