    Default an amazing cover

    The cover of this book looks like a maze, making this book an amazing story. I haven't owned a copy of this book for a long time so I can't refer to it. Only what I can remember. I didn't get into codes too much that I can remember but I did pick up on clues that pointed toward the movies. Among them were Hitchcock, Citizen Kane, Back To The Future( the way to move forward is to look back), and Spielberg. There was a connection between Spielberg and Kane. He owned rosebud, the sled with a rose on it. Working the puzzle, I noticed how places aligned SWW and SEE. I used the symbol of lighting, the mark of cain, as a path, zigging and zagging across the country, each leg getting shorter and shorter, starting in Crater Lake then shooting across the country to Virginia? then zagging to Jackson Square and so on, back and forth and ended up on top of a gazebo in Johnson's yard. On the peak, where a weather vane would be placed, there was a small statue of a horse. The puzzle, by this time, was already over. If it wasn't the final destination iit was a helluva coincidence. Maybe a red herring. But this was the second horse I had discovered. First off, I intrepreted the page with the 'spill' on it as spill+burg(mt.)=spielberg. During the time of the puzzle, he had a television program, Amazing Stories. I watched it for potential clues and what I saw instead was the statue of the golden horse. The intro to the program flashes by quickly and I watched it quite a few times before I saw it. Zooming through an all-american living room, on top of the television(this is on screen for less than a second) there was a statue of a golden horse where the antenna would be. (rabbit ears) I never did figure out how this fit in. And I don't know if anyone else did. (see antenna-tennesee) One other thing I remember is there was a Mister Memory in Hitchcock's movie, 39 Steps. This fit in somewhere. In Back to the Future, lighting hits the clock tower at 10:04?(14). I think the puzzle had many,many red herrings.

    Default an amazing cover 2

    if you would like to see the horse on top of the television in the series "Amazing Stories" just go to youtube and check out "Leann Hunley on "Amazing Stories" (1985)" near the end of the intro if you look on top of the television there is a golden horse just about the right size. the puzzle led me to this and i don't know if Spielberg was involved. hey ciscokid, give me a clue how it got there.

    In the VHS tape of the game there was the Maltese Falcon which I took to mean a classic movie . Back to the Future wasn't a classic back then . Amazing stories was current back then , probably not a clue . Yes I remember seeing the horse at the beginning , but I didn't think the game could have clues in current things . I forgot how much I liked Citizen Kane and the Rosebud reference back then , but couldn't go anywhere with it.
    In the book version of the game the Maltese Falcon was just referred to as a dingus . The book and the VHS tape were different paths to the same thing. Until you can separate them you aren't playing the game. Or so I think.
    Wow I forgot how I used to watch old movies for clues . That was a fun game I wish something like it would come back. None of these games have a movie and book to work with . My book is barely existing but the VHS tape should still work. Only watched it once about a year after the game was over, it wasn't the same .

    Default a real piece of the puzzle

    fI would like to refer to the book but I haven't had a copy in twenty years, but I saw the knutsen monument on the internet, with the rose(horse-h) june 11 1980, I thought about try route two dozen, something I never figured out, 2-12 or 2-13 for bakers, I remember in the puzzle there was a slot about a half inch long, if you held the page up to the light, the number? 116 appeared, the word? all backwards, my path began at crater lake zigzaged to the cathedral in new orleans overlooking the statue, all of my markers were high points, like lighthouses, overlooking points of significance, I figured 116 might be feet,everything was set up either SEE or SWW,my next stop was in Fort. Desoto park, there was a high tower, I figured something had to be 116 feet SEE from the tower, I measred out 116 feet looked around, I was on campsite#116, doubles I had found were a common theme in the puzzle, like two dozen, I had not seen previously that june 11 is the same as 6-11, knutsen, nest-unk, continuing SEE from the tower over to the Skyway bridge, right on line there is a monument which fits in nicely with the puzzle, if you are ever in the area check it out

    i got into the 7-31 solution, what i found interesting if you go the distance approximately he speaks about SEE of the pass (tenneSEE) you come to the area where i believe the horse was hidden, the monument next to the skyway was SEE of the water tower in the park, the final resting place of the horse was on the upper most point of a structure. where they place the ground or ground wire, thereby buried in the ground,(ground wire), maybe it is only a coincidence that my solution fits in so nicely with another solution, what i call the doubling solution, who needs spielberg? now the golden horse being on top of the TV in the amazing series might only mean someone associated with the series was into the puzzle,

    If you are interested in great covers, you should check out Alpha to Omega by William Lynhope. For those of you who don't already know, he was the author of the wonderful treasure hunt The Ultimate Quest. That also had an interesting and highly symbolic cover. He has an intriguing blog and is also on Facebook.
