Introduction to the Tim Tang Test

Take a look at the Tim Tang Test if you've never seen or heard of it before. It's located at:

The Tim Tang Test is one of the hardest and most accredited selection of brain puzzles and mind teasers that has ever been assembled! You'll need to use more than logic and critical thinking to beat this test. Therefore, I've assembled this guide to the Tim Tang Test to walk you through and help you where you get stuck.

Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with Tim Tang and you should take this guide at your own risk. If you solely use this guide you won't have any fun.

I am constantly in the process of adding additional puzzles to this walkthrough. If you have the answers and the procedures required to any of the puzzles in this guide, please give me an email at:
