perhaps if you read all the first letters of each word

That gives the following:

Why don't you help us, you monster?

However Gantic has said the word monster before and the other words seem to be so common that he would have eventually said them over his mod years.

Although help... I don't think he'd say that.

Hint? The word is only 8 letters long.

That took a little too long, but the letter count makes it too easy, which is why I didn't include it.

The first letter of each line. For example:

"Do you know the difference between grammar and spelling? Because this is just bad spe1ling."


The first letter is a D.

...I literally used the exact same hidden message puzzle as the solution?

I was that close again? Seriously?

So it's like the first puzzle. I got within one step of solving it and gave up, then weirdlike finished it.

I am looking for feedback on this thing.

Did you enjoy it?
What was the most/least fun?
What was the most/least difficult?
What was the most frustrating?
Would you participate again if given the opportunity?
Would you participate in something bigger?
What should I call this thing?
Feel free to add any other feedback not covered by the questions above.

Edit: Would you be opposed to the puzzle-solver (for individual puzzles or the overall puzzle) receiving special advantages (for another puzzle) or a special prize in future engagements (i.e. one that is different from those who participated and/or worked together, but did not come up with the answer first)?

I don't know how anyone else feels about it, but I enjoyed the team aspect of it, bouncing different ideas around, finding the little connections and putting it all together. The only part that felt competitive was the last portion which was the secret word.

It's too bad that there was that extra line. I had noticed the word "beginnings" shouldn't really have the s there and already tried checking the first letters and got up to ODO?MS... then discarded as a dead end.

All in all I would definitely join games of this type, I cant think of a name that really pops but I'm leaning towards something like "cryptic bunny hops", or "down the rabbit trail".

This is a pitfall that is hard to avoid when solving things. Sometimes your assumptions are wrong, which is why you can't move forward. Other times, you're right there but you just come short of it and turn around.

I cant think of a name that really pops but I'm leaning towards something like "cryptic bunny hops", or "down the rabbit trail".

Perhaps the phrase you are looking for is "down the rabbit hole". I wouldn't be opposed to calling these "Rabbit Holes", but ideally, I'd like to get the other mods in on this (and maybe sometimes the Knights as well), but the mods are busy folk, except for me right now, so something less leporine might be more generally applicable.

I forgot to include a question, which should be on there right now.

I'll post a full review later, but I'll say for now that I don't think anyone should get a special advantage at the start of a puzzle. I think the person who solved it should be rewarded, and I think that person should be allowed to choose, say, two other people (who they believe helped them the most) for a second reward of less value or something.

So, if I solved a puzzle, I would go back and determine who helped me the most in finding the solution. That encourages people to help others rather than impress the judge.
