+moscow32 Posted August 17, 2007 Share Posted August 17, 2007 (edited) Ok, here's the deal. I don't post a lot in these forums, but I do lurk, a lot. There have been a lot of cointests over the last few days that have ended within minutes of them being started. A lot of the puzzles require that you a) be really good at guessing random numbers or b ) spend a lot of time here in the forums. Here's a chance for you to stop and think a little bit. You know that if you win, it will be worth it. Here's the puzzle: To the winner, I will send all 4 editions of my Delicious Cache coin: the trackable version, the Gold LE, the Glow LE, and the Glitter LE. The Glow and Gold LEs have been cache only, so some of the Michigan cachers have seen them (I know LadyBee4T has at least seen all 4 versions!). My pictures haven't turned out well, so I haven't posted pics yet, but they are nice looking coins. Here's the rules: 1- Send me an email with the answer through the site. Don't post it here and don't send me a private message (I don't always see those). 2- Don't send me an email with guesses. I'll provide a crosscheck for you to know if you have the right answer. 3- Guessing is ok, as long as its not in my inbox. 4- Working together to solve it is ok. Here's the crosscheck: The answer is a single word. Take the values of the letters (e.g. A=1, B=2, C=3, etc) and add them up. If the answer is more than 1 digit, add up each digit. Continue until you have a single digit. If your answer is correct, that digit is 9. For example: If I thought the answer to the puzzle was GEOCOIN, I'd get the numbers 7,5,15,3,15,9,14. The sum is 68, which isn't a single digit. 6+8=14, still not a single digit. 1+4=5, single digit, but not 9, so I know that's not the answer. Sure you could brute force it, but that would be a lot of time wasted. Have fun, and I'll go back to lurking. Edit for smiley Edited August 17, 2007 by moscow32 Quote Link to comment
