Summer Game No. 3 is simple, just answer these questions in a note to me:
I belong to the best friend of the brother of the most recent bad guy; what is my name? (2 points)
What is my uncle's nickname? (1 point)
Where does one go for a better cut? (1 point)
What colour is the croquet ball that is NOT in play, after my owner's toe heals? (2 points)
1) This bear should be used as the point of reference for all the questions.2) All answers can be had with only Google skills and your noggin
(physical access to literary works is not required).
Not sure if there will be a hint for this one. Most likely not.
One guess per question per person, but you don't have to send them all at the same time.
Please do not post guesses in any public comments, if you do you will be disqualified from this round.
Deadline: 12 Midnight EDT, Tuesday, 22 June 2010
===========================SUMMER GAMES 2010 OVERVIEW
The Leader Board
is here: [link]
Throughout the Summer I will be posting a series of light, frivolous, stock-themed puzzle games.
Some will be like the first one, where you had to figure out a multi-step puzzle that required you to look VERY closely at a stock photo and then go from there. Some will be like Stock Charades. Some will be more visual, while others will be more puzzley (made that word up
).Each game is worth a certain number of points and each game can be solved by every person who plays
. A point will be taken away with each hint that we give; i.e. puzzle #1 started out worth 3 points, so anyone who solved it without any hints got all 3 points. After one hint had been given anyone who solved it got 2 points. And so on down to 1 point, after which no more hints will be given.There is one prize (a 1-year subscription to dA)
, and that will go to the person with the most points on September 22, 2010. If there happens to be a tie, we'll work something out.
Since this is based on cumulative points, each person can submit only one solution (i.e. guess) per puzzle.
I may answer requests for hints, but if I do I'll provide the hint to everyone - so strategize well.
Please don't post the parts that you figure out in the comments. That's pretty much a spoiler and many folks will prefer to figure it out by themselves. If you'd like to let us know that you figured something out, or if you have any other question or comment that might give someone an unfair advantage (or disadvantage), please send a note.
