    Default Not complaining or Whining, just sharing my thoughts...

    Lets say someone created a game just for fun, and it came with a set of rules. As you are playing the game, you notice that it's not quite following the rules. And when you read back through the rules, you see they are vague, and somewhat misleading. Would you keep playing the game? Or suggest to your friends and family that they play the game?


    Now don't get me wrong, I am obviously still "playing the game" and I'm seriously enjoying myself too! But supposedly MS hasn't even recouped his costs from the first book. With soooo many disgruntled trovers out there, how's he going to do with the second book?

    Me too.....and anyone else reading this is also STILL playing. Vegas exists, not because YOU win when you play.........but that there is a CHANCE that you will. And.....excuse me for being blunt......but there are always lots of us SUCKERS out there to bite at the bait of TREASURE.

    A few disgruntled trovers will not stop anyone creating a TREASURE hunt from creating.

    We play for many varied reasons, too many to list. I can't remember the exact names that Mark gave treasure hunters, but one that I do think he forgot was the WHINERS... those that play, but post to complain.

    Ok.... off my soap box........ continue to play, but remember to be nice and if you are disgruntled, take a deep breath, and walk around the block before you post... Most of the "complaints" are directed at MS or ATT in general, not with your fellow Tweleve members.
    The only token I found was SQUAT!!!

    I never imagined that I'd fly anywhere to look for a token (and I haven't), so I still like to believe that the puzzle-solving is what drew me to the book.

    The treasure part makes your heart race, and I do appreciate MS spreading the wealth around so there was more than 1 prize. I just really expected to find more variety in the answers. I'm still kind of shocked that the letter order in the 5x5 is the same for all.

    I'll buy the new book, though I'm less thrilled with the international aspect. And yes, the forum's the best part.

    I gave up on the hunt as soon as the bee thing happened and the caterpillar tree was getting trashed. I decided right then and there it wasn't for me any longer and I put my book up on the book shelf.

    Haven't looked at it since.

    I am, however, enjoying hearing the more respectable stories of token finds, and seeing them unfold before me. I also enjoy purusing this forum even though I don't post a lot.

    ...feeling chatty today for some reason...
