# Thread: CHAPTER 4 - discussion and clues

1. New clue: "Clue for Chapter 4: To start skip over then go back."

2. Why use the verbage "skip over" instead of "jump over?" Then go back and this one is backwards in its own way. Won more than chapter one. Chapter 1 had twenty pages so are we playing blackjack and the new "wons" are aces. Was Mick's daddy a gambler? Do we summon Kenny Rogers for help?
Won more than chapter 1 could mean two since chapter 2 has also been won. But so has chapter 3 so won more than 2 and 3 equals six.
An exact key placement clue would have been nice.

Hey Jeff you may want to double check your page count for chapter 1, both of my books had 23 pages.

4. Thanks "M,"
I must have been thinking keys. It does have 23 pages to the story, so one more would be 24 or "X."
Now the clue makes more sense. I owe you one of its saphire eyes if I win the eagle!

"This one is backwards in its own way" is the one that bothers me the most, because the reference appears to be ambiguous, so I'm not sure what to believe.

Is it saying that this "one" (one sequence), or "this one" (as in everything in this chapter's solution) is "backwards in its own way"? It's a huge difference.

6. Have not seen our old friend is afoot in the clues which leads me to believe that like chapter 3 this one is NOT two equal sequences.

Who in this book is not a gambler? I guess that comes with the territory when treasure hunting, though. Mick's dad certainly was a gambler, although I suspect the genealogy is a little more complicated than a game of blackjack.

8. Not much discussion still on this chapter. I wonder what other treasure hunt most have moved onto?

9. Not much activity on any major hunts that I can see right now. The Treasure of Camelot hunt which was pretty popular has really tailed off in recent months as people hit walls. Lady Lobster is still working on that one still though every couple of weeks or so.

These hunts all seem to follow the same sort of pattern... initially lots of visible activity, and then quiet down as the instant-gratification majority drops out and the i'm-going-to-win-this-if-its-the-last-thing-i-do people keep to themselves.

I will say that I am really glad that the extra clues have been released regularly. It at least gives you hope that perhaps you will be able to advance further, which is something that many other hunts don't give. That really does set this hunt out from others.

10. New clue......no help at all
