    Where? I don't see anything official, and I didn't find anything in the forum any more convincing than what I've got, and that's not saying much.

    Titled nbcsolve in 2 parts:

    "The letter block can be solved by going thru the letters similar to the maze in the companion book. Starting at the N right below the Q and you get NO LAST ADVENTURE RACE TWO IS NOW NEXT ELITE GEM
    ASSURE FATE. It does not tell where just that there is another race. The flowers petals I believe are a crytogram with the buds separating the words. I am still working on this part, but there are so many different codes. All ideas welcome. "

    Hey...it works...this is no coincidence. It seems solved,

    That's interesting, but doesn't seem to make any sense at all. WTH does elite gem, assure fate mean? AND, there are more adventures. Although those words came out, I really don't believe that was the intended solve. Is it just me?

    I think it is very clear...the eilte gem is the diamond. and since it is uncut, you get to determine its fate. So basically it is telling us that there is an uncut diamond that is the reward for finding rusful. Although I wonder if there is a way to interpret as "one" last adventure instead of no last adventure...

    But an uncut black diamond is not an elite gem.
    And it is worth $10,000...nothing close to the value of the other jewels.

    Default With this many letters in the grid....

    You could probably spell out the magna carta. The other solves have been in english with some semblance of grammar. Have to think this one will be too. Just IMHO....

    Default Clue 3--why is discussion of Clue 3 under Rusful anyhow?

    My daughter and I have seen and done LOTS of "well, it could say this" solutions. But I expect the real answer to be another "aha, how simple."

    A while ago I posted :

    ADVENTURE RACE DATA INSURES TEXT WINS

    You get this by following the text trail as well, but it's really meaningless.

    I still don't know if this text grid is to be shifted in any type of way to show something else, given how different phrases/words can be read in the grid already. The 'Q' less shift grid looks good, but hard to indicate direction. Even if you used the stem values of 2/3/4/5 as directional, some stems repeat 3 to 5 to 3, so you would be shifting back and forth the same letters.

    I think the key lies with the fact that there are nineteen sets of stems, perhaps to go down every row and column, except the ADVENTURE column, and the bud (no petals) on the different stems may indicate a type of action to be taken, rather than represent a discrete value like the petals. Of course - no results.

    I also tried looking at the buds as containing 10 petals inside, and then using/counting the petals that you cannot see. If nine petals are revealed, then I counted one petal still inside that is not shown, and - no results.

    Just my ramblings....

    Uhm...it just doesn't sound right. MS is always very clear on his messages.

    This just seems too cryptic
