    For sure that to solve any chapter without any clue is possible

    There is obsolutely, no way any of the chapters in The Worlds Greatest Treasure Hunt will EVER be solved with extra clues released by the author. Most hunts are designed that way so that the creators can keep total control over them including the timing of the hunt to be solved.
    Just look at the previous chapter solutions. Chapter one had the first ten keys grouped together, then 11 thru 19 on the same page and the final key Q pages away.
    Chapter two required to editions and had missing keys at the end. Chapter 3 missing keys and again in chapter 4, missing keys that went on a hunt of their own.
    If you know you have to find 20 keys and you only find 18 or 19 your first inclination is that your answer is wrong and you try something else. These chapters cannot be solved without spoon-fed rhombocubaiamnotreadytohelpyouout clues from the author. But that is just my opinion.

    unless there is some hidden mechanism that no one was discovered yet, the chapters cannot be solved without the facebook clues. the rules state that you will need extra clues found through media/website/etc, although this doesn't explicitly say facebook clues.

    I am now looking very closely at several later chapters. I am resolved to try and solve a chapter without facebook clues, for two reasons : To prove it can be done, and of course to win an eagle!! I think there are clues in other chapters for previous or later chapters. For instance when Jean Lafitte talks about his ship breaking into two, I think that is a clue that each chapter will have two parts (the alpha and omega) to the solution. The three keys with one been scratched out I think is a symbol of the alpha key, the omega key and the "extra" parts that are not part of the sequence in the book so are "unknown". I also think the Ben Franklin picture is a hint for an earlier chapter. I am enjoying this hunt immensely ( but da wife is shootin' daggers at my head wit her eyes since there is so much housework ta be done and I am spendin' anuthur day on that danged book). "Yesterday was the day".

    Hard to determine whether clues within a chapter are for that chapter or the underlying clues for the golden eagle hunt.

    I think people are going to think C5 is pretty cool.

    Site down and I see some postings on here were removed or are missing. Specifically those mentioning that no chapters can be solved without Facebook clues.

    One thing that would be great for this hunt would be to start releasing two clues a week like they used to. It would create more interest and generate more discussion.


    I hope we get a key this Friday! The clues seem to be conflicting with each other; I definitely need some direction here.

    nuts. the forum is losing posts again, or the navigation is screwed up, or both. I cannot get past page 65 of this thread, which shows the last post as being from 5 days ago. I know there were more yesterday, and the index displays the fact that there was a new post a mere hour ago, but I cannot navigate to see it.
