# Tìngäzìk: a Retrospective – ep. 7 “Nogomegō”

## Nogomegō #chinese

### Expected solvable difficulty

• nohint+: experienced solvers with high Chinese or Japanese proficiency
• keywords+: most solvers with Chinese or Japanese proficiency
• answer: all solvers

### Level design

バラバラ漢字
Hanzi breakdown

on my brainstorming note

This level is fully based on a video from QuizKnock, with only some slight twists on the representation on the character components. I immediately found this video a good question to include in the puzzle once I saw the final question. The last question is a good and tricky choice of breakdown that is rather challenging to build back the original character, even for native Hanzi users.

• 木木㐅㐅石大 → 礬 3:21
changed from メ [Katakana Me] to 㐅 [Hanzi]
• 冫冖心豆士欠 → 懿 5:53
changed from ワン [Katakana Wa N] to 冖冫 [Hanzi]
• 厂犬鬼日月 → 魘 4:03
• 丿号米 → 粤 7:01
changed from ノ [Katakana No] to 丿 [Hanzi / Radical]

### Expected thought process

Realize this question is asking to build Hanzi from the parts given (nohint+), or find it out from keywords (keywords+). Then either trying to look for it by total number of strokes, or look for the relevant QuizKnock video for the answer (solution+).

### Trivia

The question name Nogomegō, is taken from the name given by Izawa Takushi in the video at 7:20 (ﾉｺﾞﾒｺﾞｳ!!)
