    Default Is anything going on?

    I have checked everyday for so long, and nothing seems to be happening with this puzzle. Is it still in progress? I can't get my password to work to check on clues, and I see no conversation going on. The winner list hasn't even been updated since Aril 4th. Does anyone know anything? I hate to waste my time working on a dead effort.

    Default still on.

    Rarbowen,
    It is still on. Things are just slower cuz the puzzles get harder. Ken is busy checking all the answers submitted and writing checks. Keep at it.
    Ken has a website where users chat almost every night.
    Did you try all caps on the password? I know it is touchy.
    Good Luck

    Thanks for the reply. I never see anyone chatting when I check Ken's website. Maybe I am just looking at the wrong times. I will try all caps. I don't know if that is what I did or not. Thanks for the advice. I am working on #4....thought I had the pattern worked out, but now am beginning to wonder. I think I may scrap the whole thing and start over.

    What do you mean something is happening?????

    I'm working on #6 now. Keep thinking someone has probably solved all the puzzles. The winner list has not been updated since 4/4/06. Winners from #6 on are not going to be posted. No prize money for #6-#11 will be sent till enough copies are sold.

    What I don't understand is how Ken can guarantee the winner didn't use a computer. Even with "verification" puzzles, once the pattern is found by a computer, anyone could do the verification puzzle. Me, I'm not a computer geek and wouldn't know how to use my computer for anything other than using Excel to save on going to Kinko's for a zillion copies of each puzzle.

    I keep working on the puzzles because they are fun and certainly challenge the mind - sometimes to the point of frustration. I stopped working on ATT because I felt MS was playing games (web clues/Starz) to keep the interest up after the original 12 tokens were found so quickly. I would have been much more comfortable with his success if he would have been honest up front and disclosed exactly how many tokens or whatever were hidden.

    So back to your statement.......what are you saying?????

    To me, it seems lke everything is going on. The twelfth puzzle hasn't been solved to my knowledge, and no one seems to knwo how bob1946 is doing... he maybe be on 12, he may not. I know of 2 people who are on 10, but thats it. I hope i get to join them soon... Im working on both 8 and 9 and am slowly moving, but i have em... I think...

    Let's start making posts on Ken's forum so we can get some hints!! Remember, when they get to 500 posts, he giving clues.

    Just taking a poll.
    Who is still doing these puzzles?
    One day I want to quit, next day I am back at it.
    I figure Ken has until Dar comes out then it is on to that.

    For all intents and purposes I've quit. I just don't have the time to try every possible pattern to get this to work. Maybe once I've settled, I'll pull it out, if I can find it in the endless boxes that I'm sure I will have.
    I caught you a delicious bass.

    I still get the puzzle out occasionally, but mostly have worked on a couple of others, waiting on DAR. I have had too much trouble with number 4 to even attempt trying to send any of the others in. I was so sure of the answer, then after a misunderstanding of the instructions, did find one thing wrong and resubmitted. Obviously, I must still have something wrong, but I can not figure out what. Neither can anyone else in my family that I have had to check, so, not worth the time it takes to try. Also, I see so little action here on this forum. Until today, nothing had been posted since June 1. I have not checked today, but as of yesterday, the winners list still had not been updated since 4/4. I don't know. Seems I should do something a little more beneficial with what little spare time I have.

    I've received checks for puzzles 1-5 and have been working on 6 for way too long. Can't seem to get the pattern. I too have put the puzzles on the back burner for a couple reasons - (1) the winners list has not been updated and the web site is like a ghost town (2) not enough time as I'm in the process of moving. Oh, and (3) I'm sure by now someone is either working on or finished #12 which leaves me in the dust.

    I don't know about exerting as much effort into DAR as I did ATT. I was an active trover, spent way to much time and money traveling to parks, and in the end felt the western part of the country got the shaft. Those in the Eastern part of the country were within a days drive of several tokens - we were at least 12 hours of hard driving away from just one. I was also quite disappointed with how MS extended the hunt (and his profit) with web clues after the initial tokens were found so quickly. I still look at pages that were not used and wonder if MS had originally hidden more tokens than the book describes, why didn't he say so from the get-go.

    This is a longer post than I had intended - guess the bottom line is has anyone found a hunt that is run without changing the rules/game mid-stream?
