John said he do not have any space for more awards in his home. He need to do a break. Or win a new apartement.

Finished my entry, @hamlet: run it @ Tuesday+Wednesday? So ppl can request 1 or 2 hints on Tuesday. On Wednesday another quest/riddle can be served alongside.

Entry has 12 items.

@dan hmm.. talking about wives or other ppl in general? Smile

I do have one open slot on tuesday that we can use. Will not make double tasks in one day, that would be too confusing. So prepare for day after tomorrow.

So you are saying the concept I'm proposing can't do? Note that I already described this idea a week ago, you didn't speak out then. Quick to dismiss an original idea? OTOH, I suppose people can ask for a hint till 18.30 CEST or so, but that will be more stress on all of us. (And too confusing? We're not 8.)
I think the hints make the quest more interesting, because as it turned out ppl had quite a hard time with it last year. So main question: why didn't you speak out earlier when you knew of my idea?

(So, what would work IMO: participants mail in answers + hint requests on day 22. On day 23 participants get their hints, and have a chance to get those correct as well. (Final) score will be published at once @ end of day 23.)

If you're looking for your comment, I deleted it. People will have the chance to send in their answers until I post in the morning. And they do.
That's why.

Day 21
Obviously these must be battery covers. But where did they belong?

Although all of them devices carry the MSX logo, you only need three to complete this task.

Oops, sorry.. Was Dan's in already? Murdoch

Damn I checked Chiller but didn't listen to the tune long enough! Tongue (Never played it obviously.)

My score is too low (by 2 subpoints!?) I have 11/13 = 0.85
