    Default Junior Deducer

    I know this hunt is long over, but I'm curious to know if anyone ever received a Junior Deducer Kit for submitting the list of locations.

    I never submitted a final list because the last location did not fit the State/ Highway/ Mile marker pattern, and to be honest, I was ready to be done with that hunt by then.

    Anyone out there ever get the promised kit for the "first 100" correct submissions?

    I didn't. I haven't heard of anyone who has.

    I still have a .PDF of the "card" which was just a form for submitting all of the solutions. (I never submitted one either, despite keeping track of all of the solutions, silly me.) I don't remember whether the website ever described what such a membership "kit" would have contained.

    You should try sending yours in now- They probably still have 100 kits waiting for a correct submission!

    I believe they pulled the plug on the project for some unknown reason. Possibly they didnt meet their target book sales goal. A treasure hunt has a shelf life that only lasts as long as the treasure remains unfound. The characters in the story werent so compelling IMHO to warrent continuation. Im sure they could pull it off and produce a series of Twintigian investigations, but something went abruptly cold when Roxanne found the precious 12.

    I thought there would be a great time travel tale to explore like the Kroniker could be like Me. Peabody's Wayback...delightful animated film btw.

    This being conjecture, I remain steadfast that there was more to the story than we know, which was intended as a follow up to a deeper organized plan that may have happened if the authors had the right level of support.
