Hunters, dear fellow Watsonians, quiz fans,
The 7th Annual Treasure Hunt has officially opened at midnight, July 31st, PDT. I have chosen the hour as an homage to our other Treasure Hunt Master, Margie Deck a.k.a. “Mopsy” and to our Beth Gallego, a.k.a. “Selena Buttons”, who both live on the Pacific coast. You can submit your answers until midnight, August 31st, PDT. For further details, please check the Rules page.
A forum has been opened on the Quiz page for questions, clarifications, complaints, etc. I will try to respond to any postings as quickly as possible. I will also answer to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Clarifications and answers to requests will be posted to the forum. Please check it for updates every now and then.
As I have already said, the hunt is scored on a very simple point system; 1 correct answer = 1 point, for a maximum of 60 points available. However, many questions are composed of multiple parts, so if you know part of a question (e.g. Who?), but not the other part (e.g. When? Where?), please add the part you do know to your document. You will receive credit for each individual part of the question that is answered correctly, so 0.5 points will be awarded for partly answered questions.
I have uploaded the Treasure Hunt both in Microsoft Word (.doc) and in .pdf.
Please see the rules page for instructions for submitting your answers.
The game, ladies and gentlemen, is afoot. Happy Hunting!
Michele a.k.a. “Reggie”
2019 Treasure Hunt Master
