In this column, hunters can share some of their hunt experience on the weekend and POST IT HERE!

In this column too, hunters that need to form a team can ‘advertise’ themselves. To have better effect, I would suggest the hunters should disclose info like the particular hunt interested, gender, total hunts, whether comfortable to drive, whether comfortable to navigate and email contact. I would suggest hunters go for a particular hunt basis first, before thinking of forming a permanent team.

RR will not do any follow up, just provide a space for the hunters to ‘advertise’ themselves to get a team, and for team to recruit suitable members for a particular hunt.

Hopefully, this column will benefit everyone that look for hunt partners.

August 2007 – Virtual Treasure

August 1, 2007

Remember to includes details as at below:

  1. Treasure Riddle
  2. Email address to post the answer.  

Please send your riddles to riddleqa@gmail.com.

Your riddles will be posted between Friday, 9 pm to Saturday 9 am, every weeks.

Please review the answers in this column too, on the following Friday, 9 pm to Sunday 9 am.

ce5nt Virtual Treasure Competition

ATTENTION EVERYBODY: 

To make this Virtual Treasure more interesting, RR will organise a Virtual Treasure competition, using ce5ntreasure # 2 & ce5ntreasure # 3 as the questions to determine the winner. The style of the question will be very much alike with ce5ntreasure # 1.

The exact format of the competition will only disclosed later, but what different with this competition with the previous one is you need a team for this.

So, please register your team at riddleqa@gmail.com by Wednesday, 22 August 2007, 9 pm. Only those that register, will get the questions, those that do not register to the mail, I afraid you will get the questions only on the Q&A session and miss all the FUN, 2 weeks from now. So, please confirm your participation NOW! Those that registered only after the above date, will still eligible for the competition, but will have time disadvantage compare to other teams.

Minimum members per team are 2 pax and maximum members per team are 3 pax. For those, master level, you know who you are, I suggest you form a team of 2 to make the competition more interesting. However, if you send a team of 3 also, well, the more is the merrier.

For those, who can’t form a team, you can send only 1 name to us, and RR will help you to find a team.

The reason for the team competition is RR feel to include a very important element in this competition called team work. Team work is crucial especially solving treasure questions, normally you don’t solve it alone.

In your mail just, let us know the below info,

 Team name

1) Member A, email address (compulsary)

2) Member B, email address (optional)

3) Member C, email address (optional)

Any further queries, please post it in the comments below.

For this purpose, I will further delay the answer presentation of ce5ntreasure # 1, to Friday, 31 August 2007, 9 pm. Those who haven’t have chance to attempt the question can use this weekend opportunity to attempt it as a warm up for this competition. Thanks.

ce5ntreasure # 1

INSTRUCTIONS: 

ce5ntreasures are cyber-treasures. The main objective is to find the exact URL and send it to me as your answer.
As this is something new, I ought to suggest an approach (you can do it anyway you like of course).

Try solving the clues to determine what the item is, then find the URL or you can work out the URL
and then find the item!  After that, email your answer to me.

Good luck!

ce5ntreasure # 1

Spouse’s meal by mean, mean cook.
Find this particular festive delicacy at a local address,
Which they recite to you in part and the rest they send ahead.

(Pls send your URL to ce5nt@yahoo.com with subject line as “ce5ntreasure # 1, so I know that it is not a spam.
Of course you are most encouraged to include your explanations/thesis).

Answer: 

Mrs Chow Mooncake 

Spouse’s = Mr’s which can be written as Mrs (also a spouse).

Meal = cowboys refer to them as “chow”

mean = the first one of two “means” is an anagram indicator

“mean cook” = anagrams to “mooncake”.

“local address” = .com.my

recite to you = sounds like TO YOU = 2U

in part = part of the address

the rest = the rest of the address

they send = deliver

ahead = placed in front of the earlier part

URL is therefore deliver2u.com.my

if you browse this site you will find the correct page eventually

But if you google “Mrs Chow Mooncake” – you will find the exact URL immediately

http://www.deliver2u.com.my/Mooncake-Festival/c82/index.html?osCsid=a9ec49f0576f581ee5c6de37e25ff0b5

Thanks for trying! Congrats to the 13th second again for getting it right with just a few minutes of effort!
And pink for giving it a try! Guess, everybody else were just too tied up with more pressing matters!

Blogger Hunt 2007 Encore II (by ckoh)

Please email the answers to ckoh1965@yahoo.com

RIDDLES OPEN from 3 Aug (Fri) to 10 Aug (Fri)

So here are the 3 Qs. The answers are found within those 20 answers of the Bloggers Hunt. Please be reminded that the questions and answers are NOT IN SEQUENCE.
 
The answers are taken from all the 20 answers of the blogges hunt (in no particular order):
 
01. First Knight
02. CVS Marketing
03. Reload Coupon
04. Dobi
05. Jason
06. Metro Security
07. Three A’s
08. Mee
09. Sukma Semangat Sdn Bhd
10. 11-2B
11. R & Y
12. Hand Wash
13. Lowanz
14. Foundation YAUM
15. White Board
16. Kafe Friendster
17. * (asterisk symbol)
18. MORI
19. Choffles
20. Stream
 
Questions (not in sequence):
 
 
Q1. 36 inches replacing and thus making a track event.

A1) R & Y

36 inches = ELA

and = &

ELA replacing & thus making a track event.

R & Y => RELAY => TRACK EVENT.

Q2. Spearlike weapon connected to a drawing item?

A2) First Knight

The notorious double jeopardy! The question (on the signboard) is FIRST KNIGHT, and the answer is LANCELOT. However, LANCELOT is not directly given to the solver. Instead, LANCELOT is given indirectly as a riddle!

But once the solver figures out FIRST KNIGHT = LANCELOT

Spearlike weapon = LANCE

a drawing item = LOT (as in drawing lots to select a winner)

LANCE connected to LOT = LANCELOT (which answers FIRST KNIGHT)

Q3. Owned by a vocalist, but for the lack of 501.

A3) Three A’s

Looking for something on a signboard that has (definition) similar meaning to “Owned by a vocalist”. But that something is incomplete – it is lacking 501 (but for the lack of 501). Therefore we need to add back that amount to the signboard.

501 + Three A’s

= 504 A’s (without disturbing the A’s)

And converting the 504 into roman numeral

= DIV A’s (Owned by a vocalist).
