Happy New Year
The Whistle Pig Armchair Treasure Hunt | Suite101
This article pretty much covers what I've seen posted here. I have had this book for a while and had not gotten around to reading it until today. Pretty interesting stuff. Is anyone still looking into this? I keep seeing people refer to Quest 4 Treasure but I haven't had any luck getting on the forum, are they still accepting members?
So many puzzles, so little time -- but this one looks sooooo tasty still, even as it gathers dust on my upper bookshelf.
It's made me pick it up again. I'm the one who originally came to the Mellon Arena conclusion over on Quest4Treasure. It's fun re-reading this book and all my old notes.
The link above doesn’t work anymore. I am the one who wrote the article on Suite101 and have since removed it. The site it was on (suite101) is changing and my purpose for putting it there does not exist any longer either. Lol… It was to ‘revive’ the pig. The site had many different readers and was originally going to allow discussion forums for each channel….but that has since been scrapped.
I am going to re-post the article on my MysteriousWritings site, though. It needs reworked a bit to fit there, but maybe some interest can be ‘revived’ from there. I use the whistle pig’s front quote to introduce the site….I have always loved the Truth in it.
I liked the Melon Arena idea……However, I do have something I will be adding to that….eventually….
the funny thing is, now that I'm re-reading it, I don't think that's the solution anymore.
Some things I feel have never been properly solved: The "line up the bottles" instruction.
The ties to horse racing--btw, have you seen Duck Miller has a youtube channel, featuring 6 videos about the Kentucky Derby all featuring the Whistle Pig logo? Duck Miller - YouTube
The mention of "dust" throughout several of the stories, as well as allusions to circles, ovals, and ellipses.
The purposeful spelling errors: "stewartship," "allusive," "quiet," etc.
The repetiton of the word "pursuit" throughout the story.
Rob, hope you are doing well. Give D & D a call if you are ever out this way.
I think I have a solve for "The Whistle Pig". Does anyone know if it is still active? Is there a way to contact Duck Miller??
