    Default Has anyone made any definitive progress?

    Just wondering...
    Has anyone found/solved any definitive clue beyond the poem, the morse code, and the moonlike/look in me anagram? Since those items were found, it seems like lots of people have found bits and pieces of clues, but don't know what to do with them. I can find all kinds of things in the pictures, but I don't know their significance (or if they are just coincidental, i.e. looks like a number but is just a squiggle). So, I am curious if anyone found more clues that they are able to decipher and are fairly certain as to their use. You don't have to tell what it is (unless, of course, you want to). For example, has anyone decoded the mushrooms on page 100?

    I'm pretty sure that there are several people out there who said they solved the mushroom code at the end. Of course, they haven't said what it is or how they did it so I don't know if they even came up with the same thing.

    Yes..Have made much progress and have solved a good part of the puzzle. I posted some time back that I knew one place, but didn't have the *exact* location. However, I am so close I am hopeful that in a day or two I will be on my way to search the location. I can tell by the forum that either the posters really don't know or they are concealing knowledge. If it helps I haven't seen one post that is on the money regarding the method needed to solve. If I locate a token I will post steps needed to proceed to this group. In fact, I will also donate the cash value to charity of any item I find, but will keep the jewel.

    Mr M/S will know I speak the truth by revealing a few things such as 10.9-8 or more precise 8__ 3_ etc.

    Good Luck

    Steve,
    I'm a little confused by your statement regarding donating any cash value but keeping the jewel. Do you not get the choice of either $$ OR jewel, not both? Maybe you're talking about the cash value of the token? I was under the impression that you would have to trade that in for the jewel... am I wrong?

    Good luck in your travels.

    p.s. are you feeling like sharing what form of deciphering you used, or maybe what token you think you're on to?

    i think he means he would donate the equal ammount out of his own money, and keep the jewel.

    but i would also like to hear any more info that he would be willing to share

    Sorry..I meant to say that I would/will donate my own money equal to the posted Cash value in the book, but would keep the jewel. In my haste I left out for M/S to know how close I am are the following:

    9th---GC
    still working on the K-- through the ST..

    More but don't want to mention too much yet.

    I'm just curious, are you gloating or lying? Either way, it's not my favorite trait in a person.

    If you already have everything solved, why do you still come here?

    Donating is a nice idea though. Hope you solve the whole damn thing and donate a cool 1 mil to thesewonderful folks here at Tweleve!
    Calgon, take me away! To the jewels preferably!

    So you're saying you have 135 grand just laying around to donate if you find the spider?

    To let everybody know that I'm even closer, I have not only

    9th---GC
    and K-- ST

    but also R..45---12 and YLK--62

    What now? There's no way he can beat me

    Steve-

    Thanks for sharing on your progress. Maybe you could answer another question: Do you feel this is a puzzle that kids could solve (there has been some debate on this forum about the level of complexity)? I have bright kids that range in age from 10 - 14 and with the puzzle companion book as a guide, they are able to do parts of the puzzle. However, when I read that people are using Photoshop to deciper the supposed Magic Eye page, I know that that is beyond my kids' abilities.

    It seems like either this book is way more complex than we imagined (negating MS's statement about simple clues) or people are reading too much into things. If you need Photoshop to solve it, why not just imbed micro codes into the pages and require an electron microscope to solve it? I guess I just would like to know if this is within my kids' abilities or if it requires lots of outside tools and knowledge (beyond the methods used in the puzzle companion).

    neither..

    Someone asked about progress. The assumption is that person is wondering can the clues be all added up to have meaning for the average person. Answer..Yes, and I have posted as much.

    I am close, but I haven't looked or found a thing out in the woods. All I know is that there are many steps to finding anyone of them. I am certain of several of the steps and you will be too when you see where all this is going in the book. However, please be advised that there are MANY more things to figure than anything I have seen on the posts. That said I was sorta hoping I would help someone by saying that. Apparently not. I have no interest in all of the tokens, but like you I would like to solve the puzzle. Other than that ..good luck to you...


    Steve
