I too wonder if Ron made a math error, or maybe it is a better clue than first glance.

Always keep in mind that not all parts of all clues are for this current chapter.

Chapter 5 clue: Not all of the minions will be used in this chapter, some will be cast aside. Fear not for the solution is close at hand.

To bad today is April 1st.

Hard enough trusting these clues on normal days, eh?

Unfortunately, I haven't spent a lot of time on this in over a month, but when I see these clues, I want to get back into it.

I don't think was an April Fool's joke.

You may be aware of this already, but if the clue tells us that "the solution is 'close at hand'," one can anagram the letters in 'close at hand' to DECATHLONS + A, which is really nice since a decathlon is a game of 10 events.

Anagrams are fun.

"close at hand" also anagrams to "Candle Oaths"

There is an Eagle Scout ceremony involving oaths and candles, and we've got both an eagle connection (hunt) and a scout symbol (first symbol of map).

It also anagrams to "Salted Nacho". I'm not sure how that helps anything, but it makes me hungry.

7. Yet another duplicate clue to drag this one out.
Like I said before:
U=A, V=B, W=C, etc.
U thru Z are your minions, but I do not believe the solution is close at hand at this point.

I like the one eyed minions the best.

It could be referring to the movie.... But what does it mean?

It's referring to sequence 2? (A 2nd movie)
It's referring to having one eye?
It's referring to being movie related?
It's referring to animation?
It's referring to Stuart, ken, bob?
It's referring to "Gru"?

Or one of the other 200 relationships?

And what else in this clue unambiguously validates which of the 206 interpretations is the one being referenced?
