COINTEST: Win one of Yáahl's Feathers!

Recommended Posts

I have to say thank you!!! :D:D:D

 

I was away from the internet over the weekend and had only email-access via my PDA. On saturday I got the wonderful message that I solved a puzzle and was quick enough :D:D:D

 

I am really happy to receive one of those beautiful feathers :D Thanks again for this great and very generous cointest, Sarah!!! :D:D:D

 

And of course congratulations to all other winners, and good luck to everyone who hasn't won a feather yet!!!

 

:D:D:D I am so glad that you won one too my friend! :D:D:D Congratulations!!!!

Geez, I have been away for more than 8 hours and only ONE person has even attempted to solve any of these puzzles. If there is no more interest I will halt the cointest. :D . I was hoping to get at least 65 winners. So far I have 52 (53, really - I know that the one person who has replied today has solved at least one of the puzzles).

 

Come on, folks! Give the puzzles a try. They are not that hard! :D

P.S. Made a small correction on # 48... thanks backhiker! :D

I skipped this thread..well because I really don't do puzzles. I so stink at them. I hardly ever do the mystery caches, cause I stink at them. Seeing a theme here??So, maybe I'll try and look and see if I can do one of your puzzles, but I am warning you Sarah, I stink at them! I would love to have a feather coin. Maybe a lightning bolt will strike and I will end up with the ability to solve puzzles... Hey, it could happen. Jodi

 

 

Edit for... ok I tried one and now I have crossed fingers! I really am a dunce ya know.

Can I play? Can I play??? I am a winner, but I wouldn't say no to more feathers!!! Who knows! I might be a cheaf! :D

The sudaku like is that easy or I was so lucky or I messed it up???

I too have many of the answers, but alas I've already won one of these beautiful feathers... can I donate it to someone else if I play and win? :D

So three winners and three puzzles waiting to be solved by new winners. If no one replys by my bed time I will open the unsolved puzzles up to previous winners who will then tell me who they want me to send the feather they win to. This must be someone who has not either won a feather or been gifted one by me. I will keep y'all updated. Congrats to the newest winners! :D

By the way... Even though the rules of the puzzle say NOT to count squares, I would like to contend that from a strict geometry definition, all squares are rectangles, even though not all rectangles are squares.

Oh Thank you, thank you! After many false starts, problems with email etc. I finally got one. :D

 

I have enjoyed these puzzles very much. My son LittleLizard even did the "totem pole" picture one (I printed it out for him) I may use some of these as examples for some puzzle caches. Keep em coming even if I am "out" for feathers, lots o fun.

Remember that I would make an excellent fill in volunteer winner You KNOW you meant to make me an honorary one since not only am I computer illiterate but also puzzle illiterate. Believe me I don't even know how nor where to begin with those things :D A lot of these puzzles tend to be geometric genre :D

Thank You Sarah, for donating the four feathers to my cointest...You just made four lucky winners very happy...and gave Fairyhoney perhaps 4 more chances!!! :D

 

So...Could this be perhaps the first Cointest only coin in forum history??? :D

Got my antique copper #34 feather today - Thank you, Thank you, Thank you :D

It's actually a bit bigger than expected :)

When I got the coin in hand I saw something I didn't notice when I saw the picture of the coin - on the front there is a beak and an eye "hidden"... Or am I only seeing things that is not there?

That is Yáahl himself! :D I don't know if you can really call it "hidden" but he is definitely there.

Ok, I'm going to wrap up this cointest with a big bang!

 

This final puzzle is open to everyone - past winners, "giftees" as well as new comers and new puzzle solvers!!!

 

The first FIVE people to decypher the following puzzle will win:

 

1) If you are a past winner - one feather in each of the finishes you have not yet received (or requested if I have not sent your feather off to you yet)!

 

or

 

2) If you are a new comer or new puzzle solver - one feather in each of the four finishes!

 

So there will be FIVE people who will have one of each of the four finishes!! So here is the puzzle:

A couple things that might help you: This is a cypher of my own divising. I made a Puzzle Cache with it under my son's caching account. And, remember - you gotta catch them ALL! ;) Oh, and I removed all punctuation just to make it harder.... :D Good luck.

This one was a lot of fun & a unique idea. I worked on it till all hours of the night :D and the kids are sure having fun with it this am. I look forward to solving your son's cache; that one is way easier to see. ;)

 

Thanks for the really fun diversions and the brain challenges. I love the creativity of cachers! Since gas prices are so high, solving puzzle caches might be the way to go for a while. :D

 

We're still working on it. Please don't put up an answer yet. :D

WOOHOO!!! :)

I checked out the final puzzle last night - and immediately called to my son (just finished grade 8 exams).

"Come and help me!!!"

He got a bunch of them just from memory and then we went to work. We had a ton of fun looking back at the old and new Pokemon and got our response in a few minutes after TokyoBlossom.

Thanks so much Sarah for a fun puzzle and great idea for a cipher. :D

Tethys C and A Danish
