A to Z Challenge – Puzzling

Day 24

April 28, 2016

The X-Files Letter: X

X Marks The Spot

I’ve always been a puzzle enthusiast. The idea of a scavenger hunt, or a treasure hunt is tantalizing. That’s why I’ve fallen in love with a type of game which I refer to as a HOG – Hidden Object Games.

I can spend hours just sitting and searching through scenes to find the items in the list of objects. The graphics are all so beautiful, and if you find the right kind, you can return to a room over and over and the items will be in different places each time.

So, what would a treasure hunt look like here in our blogging community? There’s always a reward. What would be a good reward for people?

I’m thinking, a poll might be in order.

Question: What would be a good reward for the winner(s) of the treasure hunt?

Please enter your answers in the comments section below.

The next step will be announced on Monday 5/2/16

Guess What REVEALED!

When last you saw the puzzle pic it looked like this.

Your wait is finally over, and the final picture answers the question:

Where in the world is Fimnora going?

Guess What FINALE!

Yup, this is me wondering what I’m getting myself into.

Beginning tomorrow, April 1, 2016, I’m going to be challenging myself along with a lot of other folks. The full badge should be sitting there on the right, and this puzzle time couldn’t have been possible without Holly over at A Fresh Perspective, who reminded me that I’d been waiting for this very challenge to come around again.

Guess What – Day 2

Congratulations to Kim of Spiral Spun,  who hit the jackpot on this part of the puzzle of Guess What.

Her comment was:
Alphabet City and the song ABC

Because Music is the Medicine in my Soul:

Alphabet City is the correct answer to the neighborhood in New York City.

This brings us to the next piece of the puzzle:

Guess What 2

The key to why this neighborhood, Alphabet City, is named thus: because the avenues in that part of town are named, “A”, “B”, “C”, and “D” … easy peasy, right?

The next question to answer, then, is:
Why is this significant with regard to the GUESS WHAT picture?
What, in fact, does the Guess What picture represent?

CLUE 1:

It represents something about me. But what?

CLUE 2:

There is a favorite quote in a movie which Q and I watch every New Years Eve. The quote is, “How many days are you looking at?”

The answer to this is connected to what the picture represents, thus answers the GUESS WHAT puzzle game.
