    Default $25,000 Boston North End Diamond Hunt

    Hey, new here. I saw many posters in the North End of Boston for a Diamond hunt on November 10th. You can check it out at www.greatdiamondhunt.com.

    One of the reasons I'm posting this is to find some of the BostonNow treasure hunters who posted on the blog (curiousg, bl, some others) I saw many of you mentioning this site. Anyway, the diamond hunt sent me an email about having a partner or something of the like, so maybe someone would like to partner up when the hunt comes up! Perhaps even form a small team to split the pot. It is very large if this thing is really going down.

    Default woot!

    Hey,

    Let's do this! I miss you guys, and I only came in for the end of the BostonNOW treasure hunt. I'll also try to get my boyfriend on board -- he's a lifetime gamer and a brilliant mathematician -- he'd be a great asset to the team.

    I'm pretty sure Melissa will be on board for this too. She was Iamsam on the BostonNOW treasure hunt board.

    looks to be fun -- I'm in Worcester
    I originally wanted to do "Where it all went wrong", but 5 days later, this topic nicely dove-tailed . . .

    Sent you a PM, Mlssry. Jsingh, I assume you're in Boston. Brainal, where are you located?

    Well I'm in Randolph which is about 20 minutes out of Boston. I guess E.B. Horn is the jewerly store behind it but I wonder why they're just giving out 25k. Can't complain thouhg nothing like free money

    BTW Iamsam aka mlssry I can't respond to your PM so I'll tell you here. On the Hunt blog I just posted under J. I followed the blog for a while but only posted for the last few days of it.

    Free money is good -- though I wonder how complex the puzzle is. Maybe I have too much time on my hands, but I am treating the entry as if it is potentially part of the puzzle. My reason for this is that they are only going to pick 200 teams of 2 people each. So how do they select them out of a city with a population the size of Boston and surrounding areas? Randomly? First come first serve? Or, perhaps, with something cleverly sneaky right off the bat, like a note within a note saying "email here--and let everyone else email to the filter account"?

    (Dear God, I've been spending too much time around these puzzles! I can't just let an entry form be an entry form!)

    Good luck to everyone trying out!

    Good thinking meow. I looked into that and noticed the email was actually sent from a site called ctpboston.com. Supposedly that's the advertising company whos making their posters. Maybe something on their site is the first clue to being selected. If we figure it out now the people on this thread may be the first to get in.

    First clue: I looked in the Portfolio went to the print section and clicked E.B. Horn. There is a little message that says "you're getting warmer"

    This must be the first clue

    Edit: In the print section there are actually 7 clues! If someone needs help finding the page let me know. I need help deciphering them

    Edit 2: Okay maybe these aren't clues but just print ads from last year's diamond hunt. Not sure maybe someone else should have a look.

    Question

    I don't think they're clues. If you look at the pictures of the people (so funny), the signs in each picture correspond with the signs on the site. I think that once this gets underway, we're going to see those signs around town directing us to clues (or red herrings).

    Those pictures are hilarious. That's how we're going to look. Such fun.

    Meow, I'm actually in Everett, just north of Boston. I can't message you back yet -- I need to post more first. What's that about anyway?
