    Treasure Hunt Version 2

    In this 2nd Version of the <font face="Comic Sans MS"><font color=blue><big>Treasure Hunt </big> </font color=blue> </font face=comic> series, you are to use the word list from the bulletin board to pinpoint the correct world city... Not much to go on, but it's enough!

    If anyone is still tossing this one around in their head and would like some help, you may take a peek at this...

    Re: Treasure Hunt Version 2

    Yes, yes. That's correct! How did you ever figure that one out?

    I don't want to worry you, but you seem to be talking to yourself again.

    Re: Treasure Hunt Version 2

    What confuses me is that it took 11 minutes for him to tell himself he got the answer correct....

    And I wish he would have answered himself on how he figured the answer out because I don't know either <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Oh My, You're right. Wait just a minute ( while I frantically search for my medication ). Warning, I'll be back.

    Re: Treasure Hunt Version 2

    How it was solved: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Each pair of words represented one letter in the solution. The mystery letter appears alphabetically between the last letter of the first word and the first letter of the second word. As an example, Algebr a and Canal would represent the letter "B".</span hide> The 2nd and 4th pair of words offered a clue as <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">both of the first words ended with the letter "N" and the 2nd words in the pairs began with the letter "P". In both cases the letter "O" was represented.</span hide>

    Firstly - well done in answering yourself in 11 minutes - you seem to have established a pattern. Secondly, (and I don't know why JohnGray hasn't picked this up yet), A doesn't come between Z and B.

    1stly - 11 minutes isn't that long. It gave me time to sort through the festive smilies. 2ndly, (and I don't know why I didn't pick this up at the time), <!post=Smiles,464570>Smiles<!/post> is not really the longest word in the English language. But I can see where you'd be given a little latitude; afterall, it's a puzzle... right?

    Now, excuse me while I go brush up on my alphabet (just as soon as the cartoons are over).
