    I don't understand. If instructions are on the token, how do you claim the prize without the token? The contact page is a generic feedback form that appears to go back to "Triangle Solutions".

    I'm supposed to submit my solution for a treasure hunt to an anonymous website admin guy who is probably within driving distance of the token?

    You will be submitting to the author himself not an 'anonymous web guy within driving distance.' This is a single person project, there are no other employees besides the author connected to the book.

    If you discover the location of the token then either go get it or submit your solution to the author. Its setup the same way as Menagerie is working at the moment. As far as the contact page, that goes to the author.

    Interesting. So finding the token is an unnecessary step? We can just submit our solutions to the author. Do you know if he will reply if our guesses are incorrect?

    I think this is there for a broader international audience. The token is somewhere in the UK. As this is mostly a U.S. forum he probably didn't want to make you have to fly across the pond to get a token. If you're in the U.K. I'm sure it's much easier to drive and retrieve the token.

    On a personal note, I would rather go retrieve my find than having to submit a solution but again, thats a personal thing.

    Edit: Oops, and for the wrong/right answer response I'm not sure, I will probably have to ask the author. I've seen in MOST treasure hunts that authors will not comment on wrong solutions but it is up to the author not me.
