Ooo, I've always wanted to drive someone besides my exwife insane. WOO HOO!!!

3. In scramble #7 there are multiple capitals...what does that mean?


3) I can't tell you what it means, but I can tell you that it's not an accident. Only one of those four letters is the first letter of the book title, but there's a reason all four are capitalized.

Question for SD:
If you're only capitalizing the first letter of the title and not names like in the previous tournament, why are there four capitalized letters in #7 ?

Smart ass. :P

Ok, how about this: in the third Heat, do you mean fictional persons, real persons or something in-between like KFJ ?

So about this heat #3 alternative, do we get any information on it before making our decision?, and is it the same point value?

What if we find a solution for a scramble that works but isnt the one you were looking for SD?

It can be either one as long as you write it in a fictional style.

It's the same point value. As for extra information, all I can tell you ahead of time is that you'll probably need access to a library.

:rock: I doubt that's possible, but if you can do that, you're a bad mother****er and deserve an extra 5 points. :P

I'm doing vaguely okay on the word scramble, considering I suck at anagrams. Just need 3 and 7 now. For 7, is the colon in the correct place, or is that to be moved as well?

Hey! Welcome back! I guess I never got around to emailing this to you, did I? :blush: Anywho, yeah, the colon has been moved.

I hear that 3 and 7 were the most difficult. :D :devil:

Not back per se.... I'm just hanging around at my parents while I wait for my card to be fixed! But it's providing me with something to do ;)

Interesting...i dont have the vaugest idea as to what it could be, but interesting....I think i may end up taking the alternative

Yea i figured that, but i found an answer for the last one, and i had a concern that it wasnt the one you were loooking for, dont ask me why, i think all this scramble busness has made me paranoid. (I also have my suspicions about heat #2)

Should we include authors when we send the scramble book titles?

That's not necessary but feel free if you're up for it.

Hey Wolfie, :angel: since you're probably about ready to get banned for a couple days and won't be able to use your PMs you might want to send me what you've already completed. If you can use email, no problemo.

If you don't know it by now, you never will. Just give up.

(Unless you know #3. I'll give you #7 for #3.)


Is the offer still up, KFJ ?
