    Definitely not an easier than you think cipher though!

    ... we had to do one to get this far and unlock the map... and they are really only hard if you don't know the keyword. I'm not totally sold on it but I'm having a hard time ignoring it too.

    Maybe we should regroup on what we know and what we don't know?
    - Where to start: probably?
    - Direction: yes, up!
    - Cipher: probably?
    - keyword: probably?
    "The seven truly have it", does that mean 6 or 5 or 7? Seven can have anything up to 7, right?

    'The Evens' truly have it.

    Remember the previous chapter clue about 'scent - aroma' and 'Sacramento'. Both interpretations were correct and valid.

    'The Evens' is both something where the number '2' is important' (another Facebook clue stated that) and as you've noted it's also 'the seven'.

    You know from another clue that page 72 is important--at least nothing before that page contains the answer. There's another clue about 'twice as lucky', which goes back to '2 x 7'.

    I don't pretend to know what's going on, but the author feels he's given PLENTY of clues to deduce this answer--he's resorted to rehashing previous clues. At least we'll know which clues he's particularly emphasizing.

    is everyone focusing on page 72 now? the 70s years clue threw me way off when it came out. Now im thinking the 72 clue has thrown me way off.

    "Chapter 4 clue: From April 1, 2013 "You can go over on this one""

    What do you people make about the fact that it was released on April Fool's Day?

    In a hunt that states in its directions to be careful of red herrings, I find it difficult to trust anything released on April 1.

    Is the date an irrelevant coincidence?
    Is this clue an intentional red herring?
    Is this clue telling us what NOT to do?
    Is there any way to work out any of these things?

    Lobster,
    I think that his re-release of this clue should confirm it is not a red herring. I have always had an idea of what I think ut means. I still have issues that no new clues are being released. It is obvious that there is no urgency to get a winner. We have all we need to solve, but are apparently not witty or smart enough to do so.

    You have to submit a solution to the map to get a rejection and I doubt that the author is getting many submissions these days.
