    So the riddle hunt has been closed, any of the 10 solvers care to 'nudge' again for those of us who came close but failed to provide the correct answer? I got as far as identifying the 3 clues but was unable to connect those answers with the correct siblings.

    Default Historical Hunt - Update

    Greetings everyone!

    We are getting close to our next Internet Hunt, which is scheduled to be released this Sunday, February 10th. We wanted to give everyone an update on some of the new features this time around. If you haven’t checked already, the prizes have been established totaling $1,035.00 –full details are now up on our site.

    There will be five (5) types of Internet Hunts taking place, each having its unique method of solving.

    RIDDLED HUNTS – This type of Internet Hunt will provide clues and hints hidden within the riddle. It will take some creative thinking, deciphering, and ingenuity in your thinking. There will be one Riddled Hunt posted at a time and will be displayed for only a given amount of time. If a player answers it correctly, it will be closed to that player ONLY. Answer Consideration is NOT available. This will have a high point value.

    SEQUENTIAL HUNTS – This type of Internet Hunt will provide a series of questions which can only be answered if the preceding question has been correctly answered. All questions will help answer the final question. There will be one Sequential Hunt posted at a time and will be displayed for only a given amount of time. If a player answers it correctly, it will be closed to that player ONLY. Answer Consideration is NOT available. This will have a high point value.

    THEMED HUNTS – This type of Internet Hunt will have several different themes, each succeeding theme will be locked until a certain criteria is met. So, for example, if the first Themed Hunt is ‘George Washington’, every hunt within this theme will pertain to the first President. Once 20 players answer 10 questions correctly (the criteria, for example) the next theme will be unlocked with a different theme. If a player answers any question within any theme correctly, it will be closed to that player ONLY. Answer Consideration is available for every theme. This will have a ranged point value.

    BONUS INTERNET HUNT – This type of Internet Hunt will have one question pertaining to any part of history and will be displayed for only a given amount of time. If a player answers it correctly, it will be closed to that player ONLY. Answer Consideration is NOT available. This will have a random ranged point value.

    ORIGINAL INTERNET HUNT – This type of Internet Hunt will have up to 10 questions pertaining to any part of history and will be displayed for only a given amount of time. If a player answers it correctly, it will be closed to ALL players. Answer Consideration is available. This will have a ranged point value.

    We decided to keep our Original Internet Hunt and Bonus Hunt as tie breakers throughout the game. However, the frequency of these hunts will be very low, and we will provide advanced notice of its release.

    On February 10, we will be releasing the first Themed Hunt and a Sequential Hunt only. As the game progresses, we will be releasing a Riddled Hunt, and then the Original Hunt. You will need to check the dashboard for updates on all hunts (email updates will rarely be sent).

    Good Luck! And remember, this time around the majority of these Hunts will be open for all players regardless if another player answered them correctly. This means you can take your time, relax, search the web and solve at your own pace, sleep, nap, watch TV, ask some friends for help, or have some tea and crumpets. Either way, you will not be racing against other players (at least not for the majority of the time – got to make this somewhat hard, first prize is worth $650).

    To DLester:

    I'm not sure how far you've gotten with the clues and if they are correct. So, just in case here are several 'nudges' to help you along.

    The first clue is a state.

    The second clue is the town name within the state (the town name is found hidden within the first sentence of the second clue.)

    From there, you should be able to search cemetery records within that town and find the siblings. This will take some patience.

    Good Luck!

    Yep, I figured out the O3 and S6, deciphered the city from the first line of the poem and was searching burial information from local cemeteries, but never 'hit' upon the right names. Nice to know I was close.... good prep for the upcoming hunts!

    I'm glad that the initial hunts tonight will not be quite as time-sensitive as the "original" internet hunts, as you are releasing the information just as Downton Abbey begins! I will be having tea and crumpets during that hour, but will join the hunt afterwards. I hope I won't be too late.

    Can anyone offer help on the sequential hunt? I am stuck on the original owner. I think it is (I will try not to give it away) The Reverend _l_s_a _a_o_, but I have tried all kinds of combinations of his name and title, and it just is not correct. I have also tried both of his sons, and also both of his sons for the next answer too. Am I totally off track? Any help or hints would be appreciated.

    I guess that we (as a group) have to get further along and add up lots of points in order to "open" the themed hunt.

    This threw me too for a minute....look for the owner of your last answer. Sequential can be tricky

    Lesley,

    I sure was having a "Doh!" Homer Simpson Moment! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I can't believe how much time I wasted on that! Ouch!

    Lesley - Thank you for calling attention to the - 1! I feel like a knucklehead.

    GB - In answer to your closing observation on your previous comment, to start the Themed Hunt, you need to click on the image that says Civil War Hunt. Like you, I thought we had to "unlock" the themed hunt by answering questions in the sequential hunt but a friend clued me in: clicking on the image is the way to reveal the questions. Apparently the next themed hunt will open when a sufficient number of people have answered the Civil War questions.
