Rdshckle-Me too. I kept thinking football stadiums or fish hatcheries.

2. I initially thought of football too.....and was hoping since I live in Green Bay....thought of Canton, etc. However, we might assume "tackle" is an instruction and work with repositories. There are some nice tie-ins to the companion book.

3. That's a cool thought, too. I had not considered that.

Maybe it means to do research in libraries? "Anyone who can read can discover..."

4. It's early on the west coast, and I not awake yet, I grant you..not my most pleasant self.....but guys,,,,

this is so off topic.....

5. Rusty,

I initially thought the "tackle repositiories" meant to look in libraries. I thought perhaps MS hid the tokens inside other books.

My line of thinking was "an even code with one piece nary, will spell out the sactuary" would reveal the name of a library.

"an code of numbers five to a side reveal the name where the treasures abide" would spell out the name of a book (or perchance the dewey decimal number of a book).

Then it would be a simple matter of going to the PUBLIC library and finding the book and "reaching inside" to get the token.

6. Beetleboy,

Very cool. I like your ideas. (sorry Hunnytree, but the topics go where they go.)

I had not considered Dewey decimal numbers before now. It has been since middle school that I cared about the Dewey decimal system. How many digits does the typical book have? What is the scheme?

7. Unfortunately it is not 5 to a side. Certain topics have number codes, usually 3 numbers. I don't fully understand it, but when I went to the local library, I found that there could not be 5 numbers to each side of the decimal.

8. ## yes but

there could only be 5 numbers on the side of the book, 5 to a side.

9. ## With name in hand the faeries know

What about ferry names? Is there a token in Staten Island?

10. Re: 5 numbers on the side of a book....

5 to a side

Clever Spinner....

How right you are !
