    Default New Puzzle series/hunt begins June 1

    Hi Twelevers,

    I'm repeating this post from the new hunts forum, since this is a puzzle-related activity, though there is a hunt aspect as well. If I've crossed the line, sorry!

    There is a new hunt that will begin on June 1, 2006. The hunt has two parts, one completely armchair and the other is an On-The-Ground where you have to be there in Carson City, Nevada.

    Each hunt has 12 puzzles, leading you to a final answer. Each of the 12 puzzle answers in each hunt is worth $20 for the first correct answer. The first to answer all 12 AND the final answer in each hunt wins at least $1,000.00. If you are local or plan on being in Carson City, and good at puzzles, you could conceivably win over $2,500.00.

    Entry is $15, with proceeds going to benefit Gifted and Talented educational programs in northern Nevada. Also, a dollar of each entry is added to the grand prize, so as more people enter, the prize pool gets larger. Spread the word and increase the prize!

    I figure this will be a good mental warm up for the next book by Michael due this fall...

    I will post details and the appropriate web links in the next couple of weeks; I still need to finalize a few local aspects.

    PM me if you have any questions or need additional information. Also, we are looking for page sponsors if anyone want to contribute

    Default The Hunt is ON!

    Hi all,

    All details have been hammered out and registration is available for the June 1, 2006 "Puzzle Me Carson City" Treasure Hunt. Additional information and registration is available at www.twdive.com/puzzle.html

    Entry is $15 and the first to answer an individual puzzle gets $20. Nice profit!

    First to solve 12 correctly and get the final solution gets at least $1,000. Since a portion of each entry goes into the pot, pass the word, so the prize grows... Also, note that the winnings are in USD not Twollars!

    Given the level of puzzle-ability of the users of this site, I estimate the $1,000 will be won within 2 weeks for the Armchair hunt.

    To all of you who choose to enter, thanks for supporting smart people like yourself.

    PM me if you have any questions!

    Default Sample puzzle

    The puzzle book that is the basis for the treasure hunt can be downloaded from www.twdive.com/CCtreasurehunt.html if you want to see what the competitors are striving to solve for the $1,000.

    Here is a puzzle I didn't use for the competition. Anyone want to take a stab at it?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    To some, solving a puzzle is a battle of wits. To that, another may simply reply, “pish!”
