I agree with Tracie - it's kind of nice not to be obsessed with the hunt. I can't imagine how many hours we spent collectively. If anyone is still checking this site - thanks for everything. It was exciting when we really thought we might find one of the tokens. A lot of good ideas were hatched here!
Goodbye old friends, it's hard to believe it is the end!
I check in now and then to see what's going on . I agree that it has been a wild ride and sorry to see it over for now , but we have time to collect our thoughts and enjoy our families once again . I almost didn't recognize mine when i decided to end the madness of the hunt . See you all in a year or sooner to chat . Carol
Hi all. I haven't been on here in awhile, but I was just checking the forums and there is a new clue coming this Saturday on the show "Extra". It will also be simultaneously announced at the ATT site. Hmmmm. More treasures? I too have been enjoying some time away from the book.
Now that the hunt seems to be winding down, I've just about finished my consolidated solution web site. (Still need to add Spider and Pook). If you're interested, the link is http://www.attsolution.com. Let me know if you've got any comments/questions/etc.
Hmmm...guess I was right about the more than thirteen thing...and now I am showing a total of 17 treasures possible.....
Here is my post from June 2005:
I personally believe that there are 15 tokens......Just based on the number of pictures and dropcaps....however....there could be some suprises in there....ones that we didnt know...
The poem says "tweleve treasures for you to keep"? => how many treasures that can't be kept?
Why would there be thirteen?? Some might believe that stopping on thirteen would be unlucky.
I counted 15 dropcaps... and would subscribe to the 15 token theory.?
Using basic induction/deduction we have K(12) and K+1(13) so it is feasible that K+2(14) and K+3(15) exist...
I am of the personal believe that whoever gets the pook gem should return him to his rightful owner.....(kinda the charlie and the choclate everlasting gobstopper thing)? after all pook is a replica of MS'S pet.
of course I could be wrong on all the above conjectures......
Good god I can't believe that I am back here again already??!!! But I am game and can't wait to see what this is going to bring. I need to frantically dig out my book and get myself reaquainted with Rusful and the gang Will talk again soon. I hope that the wedding was a success Carol. I still can't believe that I am here again crazy crazy crazy btu lovin it!
