This is probably a reference to the new system musical artists have adopted for keeping stoners out of their concerts: "the Triangle Gate". For those artists that believe drugs dampen the enjoyment of a musical performance rather than truly enhancing it, they find it depressing to pour their soul into their work and realize so much of their audience is baked out of their minds. So at these new gates to the venue positioned AFTER payment, each individual attendee is given a live street test from the artist's staff on their own musical ability and musical appreciation. They are required to bring their own musical instrument, any musical instrument. Of course, a triangle is an affordable and easily understood instrument, so it is a very popular choice among concertgoers looking to minimize the risk that they totally lose the value of their ticket by failing this test (the jury is very much out on whether the sober fans are passing it more reliably). The tester asks the attendee to perform using their chosen instrument, and also plays five melodies with some pre-selected, pre-tuned triangles, challenging the attendee to recognize which triangle is out of tune or not worthy of true musical appreciation. Once the staff member is satisfied the attendee "gated in", to call it by the slang term, and the last thing the attendee will do before turning off their phone to respect the artist is post an excited tweet about their success to their friends, sometimes accompanied by a brag about how far from sober they were at the time of the test.
"Let us say that you are right and there are two worlds. How much, then, is this 'other world' worth to you? What do you have there that you do not have here? Money? Power? Something worth causing the prince so much pain for?'"
"Well, I..."
"What? Nothing? You would make the prince suffer over... nothing?"

Egypt has the pyramids and those are triangular.

Ice cream cones look like triangles.

Cell makes a lot of sense to me because of terrorist cells, and jails that spies can end up in if they get caught

They have 6 and need 9 to win, and have a missed clue.

We have 7 and need 1 more. Its either train or cell, but im not confident in picking one over the other.
