Because it’s our last chance to impress with our puzzle-creating prowess, today’s PfP will be the biggest of them all, combining different aspects from all past puzzles into one big mess. Probably only about four of you will try it, and hopefully one will succeed. In order to encourage you all though, we have a myriad of prizes to be awarded for this one:
Grand prize: your last blog postcard… ever. And if that’s not enough incentive, you’ll also receive a mention in an upcoming blog post about why you’re more than just a winner at PfPs, you’re a winner at life.
First runner-up: your last blog postcard… ever. But no mention on the blog.
Everyone else who solves it by the end of this Friday: your own self-satisfaction, plus the chance to win your last blog postcard… ever. That’s right, we’ll randomly choose one of you and send you a postcard too!
Finally: Everyone who attempts to solve this PfP and leaves a comment on the last post that they are able to get to will receive a secret prize to be revealed at a later date. (Don’t get your hopes up though, as it will cost Zhou and me nothing and it may be a long time before you get it anyway. Oh, all you people who actually solve the puzzle will win this too.)
It’s been fun – hope you upcoming winners will enjoy the final prizes, and hope you past winners have enjoyed your hard-earned postcards. Good luck one last time; we now present you the final Puzzles for Postcards.
Puzzles for Postcards
Over the course of this blog we have experimented with seven different types of puzzles, as well as one scavenger hunt that was solved by three people. We’ll begin today with a poem that will point you in the right direction, and from there you’ll be able to figure out where each of the different types of puzzles comes into play. For the final time, good luck!
