    If it's a hint, it's not a very good one, because nobody seems to know what to do with it. If it's a reference to something in Masquerade, it violates Pel's statement of not requiring anything outside the Fandango book. Looking to find Masquerade spelled out in the text is pointless, because you can do it with any text with a Q in it. The other letters are all very common. If he spelled out Masquerade, why not spell out "See". He saved two letters. But I think there are some left over letters anyway that don't make sense, so why not ditch those and just spell out 'See'?

    I don't think so - the only email address I'm aware of is the one on the Fandango Website, followthefox.com Just be sure to add your email address if you write to them. They have said that they have no way to respond if you don't include it in the text. Although it's been a long time since they answered anybody.

    I don't think anybody has gotten any response in a very long time. Or ever

    I did get an answer years ago (maybe 5 years ago?) when I sent an email via their website, but I think I've tried two or three times since then with no response. From what I can tell, this has been the experience of others as well.

    What did you ask and what was the response?

    Most people's response is dead silence.

    I'm don't remember exactly what I asked, but I'm sure it was asking for some confirmation that the key was still in its hiding place and that this was still active. The reply I got was simply, "The hunt is still on" - not exactly ground-shaking, but it did confirm that it was still active. I don't know if anyone else has had any further responses, but I haven't seen anything posted in years. One twelever - mattylarocha, I think, spoke to Pel on a few occasions & said she/he had his phone #. Maybe they are friends?

    I have spoken with Pel on the phone a couple of times. It was over 5 years ago. Both times I presented my solution, and both times he said that I had not solved it. I asked him if he could verify part of my solution and he said he would not. He will only tell you if you've solved it or not. But you would still have to go collect the key to actually win the prize. So technically, if you solved it and contacted him with your solution, and he said yes, you've solved it, if someone else solves it after you but is able to get the key sooner, they would be the winner.

    No, we are not friends and I've never met him.

    Thank you for the update and clarification. I didn't realize you could verify your solution with him before going out to get the key. I thought finding the key was the verification, and you then notified them via the 'follow the fox' email or via some set of instructions with the key. I'm assuming there must be some information with the key that tells you how to notify them if it's found, and where to go to get the treasure. Someone who is not following the book could conceivably stumble on the key and would need to know how to claim the treasure. I also wonder if the information on where to go - what bank, safety deposit box code, etc. - is with the key, or if you have to get it from them once you show that you actually have the key.
