    NOTES:

    adj. Aware or conscious of something.
    Done intentionally or with premeditation; deliberate.
    v.Present participle of wit2.
    n. Chiefly British Knowledge or awareness; cognizance.
    Information obtained and passed on; news.

    Afrikaans: Cardinal number - twintig = TWENTY
    In mathematics: 20 is a triangular pyramid number .
    In science: The atomic number of calcium .
    In Dutch: Twenty is a cardinal .
    The Mayan : The Mayan Calendar is based largely on a twintigtallig system.

    A good site with a twintigtallig explaination (but you will need to translate) is here: De Maya's
    I get the feeling the Mayan Calendar or End of TIME references will be in the story, we'll see.

    Just doing a little advance notes, but I think this hunt will be right up my alley.

    Cheers! Domino

    That is good news, I hope I get them same when I check my email. I must say, the "floors" illustrations and characters are very appealing. There is a lot going on. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out. I think I'll buy a new shovel. (I dont think I have ever said or event THOUGHT that).

    Cheers!

    No bell, it looks like something to solve. I hope mine is waiting for me when I get home today or tomorrow. I will accompany on a short trip if so.

    Cheers, Domino

    My book was waiting for me when I got home!!!
    This is a really cool book and should be a lot of fun.

    There is a short story on the first two pages.
    The following pages or floors each have a story on a picture on facing pages.
    There is then a short story at the end. Which does mention coordinates.
    I wonder if each solution is just a number set?

    I love the artwork and as you turn each page, you can look down he building and see elements of what is coming next. Kinda reminds me of the Sesame Street book where Grover does not want you to turn the page.

    For those that have the book, Is the artwork messed up on the elevator shaft of the Tenth floor? I think there is a problem with my book, it does not seem to be part of the puzzle.

    Good luck everyone!!!

    Ah, got mine too. It is a very unique book. I really dont know if the design will be practical or not but it sure is cool.

    I'll be traveling a bit for the next week but will take the book along for the down times. I'll catch up with you all on this next week.

    Cheers,

    Domino

    Mine too is messed up looking, like it was a printer error or something. No carry over to other parts. It is REALLY odd. I'll check to see if you found anything out while I am away. Good luck and Huntith Happily.
