    Default Hint: Tackle repositorys New Twist

    went back thru and haven't found a post with this being said and please feel free to move, its a new idea and its about the clue..

    I think everyone is annagram hungry and not looking at the possibility that this is a very simple clue..

    Hint: Tackle repositorys

    suggestion: deal with the one who is entrusted with secrets or confidential information

    perhaps he's just telling us to solve the fairies first?

    A friend had an interesting idea last night... I'm not real sure I understood, but maybe there's someone out there who's more into mystic spiritual stuff. Anyway, Ana keeps trying to send messages to Zac, so *he's* the repository... ? And if he is, how do we tackle him? LOL :P

    Then why did he spell it wrong? C'mon, the guy has a dictionary, don't you think?
    Calgon, take me away! To the jewels preferably!

    yes, the misspelling is the red flag for anagram here. i would have to argue that any explanation for "tackling respositories" that DOES apply to the solution was reached after the fact. what i mean is that i think the anagram was created first, and it was shuffled until something came up that SOMEWHAT applied to the solution. in this case, "tackling repositories." the misspelling far outweighs any other assumption...

    Anagrammed to Hint:... from another clue. I agree completely. No 2 ways about it. Do not take the clue at face value.
    Over 1,000 miles travelled in search of 1 token.

    Tokens found: zero. (no, I don't expect I'll have to edit this)

    Stadther had previously said that 12 pieces were out there to be found, but during a recent phone interview from his office in New York, the writer revealed there are actually 13 .

    The revelation came as Stadther cleared up another clue that he released last month. That clue is not mentioned in the book.

    CNN.com and other sources reported that Stadther gave his treasure hunters the following clue: "Hint: Tackle repositories." Stadther explained that he'd actually said: "Hint: Tackle repositorys."

    "It's an anagram," he said. "It's 'Crystal Pook is thirteen.' What that's saying is that there are 13 jewels instead of the 12 that everyone knew about."

    ==========

    Ok, time to move on and find something else to crack, we've got this one.
