    Round 6 - The Secret Trail - How to Access

    In order to have accessed this Secret Round, players should have used the code from Round 4 (Codeword) to decipher the light blue message in Round 1.
    This is the coded message:
    Nwmim qim yop wojjmg svijy, vgm og mquw Mqynmi nwimqj, nwqn uqg em bvdgj dyogh nwm Wqrrvsmmg yntrm.
    Ob tvd ymgj am q ZA sonw nwmym yop svijy og qrzwqemnouqr vijmi tvd sorr em ymgn nwm Ymuimn Ivdgj et ZA.
    This is the decoded message:
    "There are six hidden words, one in each Easter thread, that can be found using the Halloween style.
    If you send me a PM with these six words in alphabetical order you will be sent the Secret Round by PM."

    Round Order..........................Alphabetical Order
    Round 1: circles.....................1. circles
    Round 2: crossword-style........2. crossword-style
    Round 3a: patterns................'3. designs
    Round 3b: designs..................4. maximum
    Round 4: replaced..................5. patterns
    Round 5: maximum.................'6. replaced

    These six words "disappear" when switching to the Halloween thread.
    If you sent the correct combination of words, you were sent the Secret Round by PM.

  10. Ooooh.. that explains the easter pictures in db's threads. I came across two of them and thought he was a bit of a weirdo 'cause it seemed random to the actual posts. Haha!

    My bad. I haven't come to these threads at all, so I didn't know the details of the competition. Just thought I'd come in to see who won XD

    Well done, stormy and foxy and everyone elsey:)

    Well, you wouldn't be the only one :razz:

    They won't just be hidden around here, but also on the internet :razz:

    Round 5 - The Map

    I have had many queries about the map of round 5, so I thought it would be better to post about it here.

    The map is just like a egg hunt but without the forum searching, and I defined the answer prior to posting round 5.
    There are probably hundreds of suitable combinations and even though many people have created a suitable solution to fit all the clues given, and therefore can be deemed as fully correct, the aim was to match as many egg locations to my predefined answer.
    Everyone who has matched each egg location with a cross received 2 points.

    I now realise I should have been a little clearer when defining what exactly to do, and I apologise for that. If everyone got full marks for this part of round 5, I feel the winner of the competition would have been purely based on round 3.

    My answer to that was going to be......a link to me beating you at Mahjong...but, darn it you are too good :p
    *keeps trying* ;)
    I, for one, have no clue as to how this whole competiton worked!!! So I am thankful for my lucky guessed points for the map. There were so many clues within clues within clues, I thank God I gave up as soon as the 'hunt for eggs' was announced! eep. Deebs, you have outdone yourself.
