    Default Money!

    well now, i got my checks for puzzles 2 -5, figured out how to decode 6 finally. took me 3 months and alot of brain cramps but i have it about half way written out. So, i was wondering where everyone else is at...? I go into the chat room on occasion and listen to the crickets chirp. Last i read charles? is still in the lead. i think it will take me forever to catch up to you guys but i'm still plugging away at it. So whatever happened with ya charles? Did you send the checks back to ken? Are you still playing the game?

    A situation came up, and apparantly hes no longer in the competition. Most likely, based on his posts, he quit because of the new rules, or something like that. theres people who are on 9, some on 8, and most on 7... maybe theres some on 10, 11, or 12. Or maybe the house is won already. Ken's been quiet lately, so its a possibility.

    Good job on getting to 7 obs! I quit because of lack of time, and frustration. Trying to make my own treasure hunt of sorts. I came up with 2 "perfect" puzzles, i think. Complex, yet logical and could take as much as a day to a year to solve.

    Hi Guys, I too finally got #6 and am now working on #7. Found a few really odd things and would love to compare notes. If I'm reading it correctly, we have to wait for a check on #6. Is that right?
    The choices we make today will dictate the lives we lead tomorrow.

    Keep your eye on the prize.

    yep... we wait till 200 people sent in correct answers. From what I get, Ken will wait till he has 200 submissions before he will look at them. When he hass 200 submissions, he will go thru them to see if they are correct. If your submission is wrong, it will be removed from the order. You will not be told if you are incorrect, so triple check all submissions on 6 thru 12. No prizes will be awarded until he has 200 CORRECT answers. Considering as of 4/4 there is only 25 people who passed puzzle five, we will have quite a wait before us...plenty of time to work on 7 thru 12... I am also occasionally working on 7 and definatly dont mind bouncing ideas off anyone so pm me if you want to

    I'm stuck on 5 still, mostly for a lack of time. I hope to catch up, but it won't be for a while.

    Default I am here!

    Great to see you back obs-me. I gave up on 7 and above, lack of time and interest. The break downs just fizzled me out of it. I enjoyed the first 6 and made a profit so I am good with that. Not many chatters lately, I think they go in after 9pm but I am not sure.

    No question is a stupid question if you don't
    know the answer. Stupid is not asking.

    I am here, but seem to be behind everyone else. I am still on 4. I hardly ever get a chance to work on it, so it's my own fault. I am hoping next week will have some time available in it to do some work on it. It does get frustrating not hearing any positive feedback. I think my greatest disappointment in the puzzle has been the rule that we can't have any real discussion about them.

    Default puzzle discussion

    hey, we are allowed to talk about the puzzles and toss ideas back and forth. But not give out answers, for example, i could listen to your ideas and give feed back, but not give you a direct answer. I couldn't tell you what the values for e are in puzzle 6, but could remind you of how letter frequencys work in the english language...something along those lines. I personally had alot of trouble on 4, i think 5 is easier.
