a: he's referring specificially to Games magazine (I've never seen a puzzle in PC Games, anyway?)... but

b: not any particular puzzle or single item. he was just "mood setting" -- think average book of logic/math puzzles.

That's a relief... I seem to remember most of the puzzles being crossword, cryptogram, and other word-play type games with a few logic/math puzzles mixed in. But then, I haven't had a subscription to Games in a while, so its possible that my brain has adled (probably from not solving enough puzzles) or that they've changed the content.

This appears to be quite a popular contest.
Is there some sort of inverse relation between how much is known about a contest and how many people participate?
I guess I shouldn't miss out on it, even though I doubt I'll win.

Yeah, that one. That's the one I meant. Sorry for the confusion in the large population of people who have never seen a copy.

3. What happened to 2.?
4. I have never heard of Games magazine
5. I have no understanding of Rank Points
2. Ah! There it is!

Why? As far as I can tell, you're not on the list of people who can't participate. The two "Matt"s on the list are Mattcrampy and Schik, right?

You know, I think you're right. I forgot Schik was also named Matt. Also, I was wondering why Erik put me on the list of Caravel people. So I guess that means I'm in! Woo!

What's worse is that we're excluded because we're supposed to know the secret, but I have no idea what the answer is.

Aah, well, guess I'll get the answer at the end of the month.

The "hint" I gave on the team board is the equivalent of the 5th Clue, so it wouldn't be fair to let you guys in. If you want, you can still e-mail me the Secret when you know it, and I'll tell you after the Reckoning how you would have done if you were really entered in the contest.

I know--its not the same. :no
