    Default ThanksUSA

    this is more questions, then it is a hunt. but the prizes are cool.
    i think it is for kids only. k-12 grades. if theres any teachers out there this would be something cool to look into for your class. also kids 14 & younger can do it on their own.
    thought i'ld share it with everyone.

    Default Grrrrr.....

    I got all the way to the end of the ThanksUSA puzzle--I'm doing it for the fun, not the prizes--and the last section is dorked up!! The puzzle is about Maine, but the Kakuro puzzle it makes doesn't solve, one of the answer clues has a glaring error in it, and the final key for this puzzle mentions Illinois, not Maine--and the answer cannot work. It asks for a name of an Illinois senator (first name five letters, middle initial, last name six letters) and there aren't any that meet those criteria! This is highly frustrating!!

    Anyone else doing this one? Is anyone finding problems with the puzzle?

    As it turns out, I was chosen in a drawing in one of the later rounds from last year's hunt (2007). I just had my prize delivered today.

    It consisted of a laptop computer and a keepsake box that contained several small gems, a small Roman coin (Widow's Mite), and a civil war bullet. In total, about a $1k prize.

    I got lucky, but if you don't play, you can't win.
