    Ah yes, after attempting to divest myself of this hunt, I'm afraid I'm stuck - I've had too much fun thus far, have made great progress, and there still seems to be that lure of a potential prize at the end if I stick with it. Of course it helps the prize pool will be extended to 4th and 5th place, and all of the encouragement from HH and the rest of you!! Quite frankly, I can't get that dang riddle clue out of my head....... and when it starts to hurt, my mind turns to those yet to be answered questions that I just [I]know[I] I have the answer to!!

    [QUOTE=themusicman;553604]Genetic Blend, I'm sorry, of course you should enjoy your first place status! I didn't mean anything by it honest, I just haven't played this game before and was just trying to find out more about it.QUOTE]
    No offense taken. I know my time in the spotlight is doomed. But it is nice to savor it for a little while. Just like DLester, this riddle is making my head hurt. And once those Original Hunts start, look out! Those will be a real game-changer. Good luck!

    Default How many answered the bonus question?

    The first bonus question closed at 4 p.m. (est) today. How many HH participants answered it correctly? If I am remembering the scores correctly, it looks as if stvwz, themusicman, Goldie D., Sara H., Suzanne S. and Richard Y. entered the correct information. GeneticBlend did you also score in the bonus round? Anyone else?

    Just curious. Once you've answered the question, you no longer have access to the count of correct answers.

    For what it's worth, that question was similar to (although maybe a little bit easier) than the kind of question we saw a lot of in HH's November Internet Hunt. Googling this one opened up some modern resources that linked to primary (1920) documents that held the answer. In November, it seems like we did quite a bit of hunting in primary sources. The wordiness of the question was unusual, though. Maybe that's why HH used it for a bonus question instead of inserting it into a list of questions for an Internet Hunt.

    I got the Bonus as well. Im still lingering back in 8th or 9th i think. I missed out on the first riddle hunt, and have not solved the second yet. I have the Clue one answer, but my clue two answer seems to show 6 towns under a rock not 4.

    I got the bonus question correct also. This was my first bonus question and I was prepared for a frantic hour-long hunt, but was thrilled when I got it within 5 minutes.

    I also got the riddled hunt after some additional digging. I'm still stumped on the longest battle question from the Civil War theme - not sure what I'm missing but every answer is rejected. I see that 9 people have answerd it correctly, so I know it exists!

    I got the Bonus Question which was really easy. I'm still trying to get the right combo for the Riddled Hunt. I'm having a terrible time with some of the Currency Questions. I started late, so I've been playing catch up since returning from Rapa Nui...aka Easter Island....dead tired with tons of laundry! Hasn't been easy!

    Yes, I did get the Bonus Question. I was happy that it wasn't too difficult, as I only had a window of about 15 minutes to answer it! I came home from work, but had to leave again. This hunt is exhausting!

    My sequence has (mostly) disappeared. Has anyone else lost their clue log for the sequential hunt? I solved the clues out of order - is that the problem? I have the answer to the first question, but my other answers (and questions) have disappeared. I am now working on the last question. I wish I could refer to the previous clue and answer as I work on it.
