I did not participate in chapter 3, but I wanted to bring this particular facebook clue back. Not all clues are fully for the chapter, but hint at future solutions.

Jan 4....

**Riddle me this and riddle me that**: tlboon, eldfis, lemkim, woshall will be the key to pulling this one out of the

**hat**.

Well Riddle me this and that for the next two chapters... keys 2,3,4 (HAT) for chapter 4 given out in chapter 3.

And now, onto chapter 5 facebook clues:

Using the empty

**Sudoku puzzle** on page 103, if the number is divisible by 5 remove it, if the number is greater than 30 remove it, remove the loneliest number, if there is a triplet left over take it out, one of the perfect square numbers remaining will help you on your way.

Any ideas on how a 9x9 Sudoku puzzle could be incorporated into a solution? This is probably for later chapters, but I'm curious on how 20 numbers could fit? 2 lines times nine numbers? Maybe remove the first and last or 10 and 20?

My first thought is something like this? A dumbed down example for chapter 4, which probably doesn't exist in the chapters...for illustration purposes only:

Code:

CHATBLESMI
NJDFGOKQRP
03-08-01-20-02-12-05-19-13-09
14-10-04-06-07-15-11-17-18-16

pick the second digit of every number under ten the first time through numbers 1-10, then same thing 11-20, ignoring 10,20?

Code:

3-8-1-2-5-9-4-6-7
2-9-3-4-5-1-7-8-6

Could be two lines plus two missing keys at the beginning or end? Or other? Any other theories of how one might construct a puzzle where a 9x9 grid helps?

Surely the fact that there is two Sudoku's, two half's to the solution, and a facebook clue starting to push that way must have some people thinking?
