    Default Kids

    A month has passed since you received your book:

    A) Your kids are still into the treasure hunt spending quality time with you just as much as when you first received your book.

    B) Your kids have lost intrest trying to solve these difficult riddles with you after a month of receiving the book only to leave the book and riddles totally to you.



    Just curious how many kid's are still toughing it out after a month or so of disappointment.

    E. Youve lost 10 lbs, your diet consists of popsicles and Cheeze Wizz, your child drives himself to school (hes in Kindergarden) and all you can think about is THE BOOK!!

    F. You're kid is still devoted, but you're leaving most of it to him/her, but you spend less time on it. Your kid has found about ten times as much as you so far.
    Or am I just paranoid...

    G. Your kids and spouse have lost all interest in you while you spend every waking hour looking through the book, desiging 5x5 grid solutions and reading through the forum for that ONE little bit of knowledge that will cause the light bulb to go on and cause you to go running from your house toward the EXACT location of a token so that you can pull it from its sanctuary and caress it and hold it close to you....my preciousssss.

    H. You are a former Steinitzian, hopelessly addicted now after your first time with a "puzzle" of that magnitude, and a forum / board to post on. You had to join the SPA (Steinitz Puzzlers Anonymous) - the AFTER THE SEARCH FOR THE URNS PUZZLE IS OVER support group - which didn't help - when someone figured out the puzzle and you hated the LEEDS answer. Or not. You stumbled across ATT through the Steinitz Puzzlers board. You found your way here, realizing quickly that this indeed was the best organized, well thought out, high quality forum available, with the finest posters (even tho you do check into the others cause you can't help yourself). You bought the book (more than one copy because the first one is trashed), and the CD, the CPB. You have already been on searches, spent hours on the board, spent more hours IN the book, and .... you are just beginning to figure out....no....not where the treasure is....but .....that you need a therapist. If only, If only....

    p.s Your grandaughter still loves the book and the CD...but she is no help anymore figuring anything out. She loves the searches tho.

    I. You ARE a kid (albeit an adult one) who agreed to work on ATT with your father, but he seems to have given up on the hunt weeks ago and now looks at you funny whenever you mention your latest lead at the dinner table.
