All right, I'm so not getting this. What does [item + number] mean? I thought that it would be something where I would take all the letters from the item names, subtract letters from the ones with a [ - number] next to them, and figure out the anagram. But how am I supposed to *add* letters?

Sorry! I'm probably just being dense.

ok so it says using the first letters of each word or the letter coming a certain number of spaces before or after it, it spells out A Returning Friend? what does that mean???

ILUVNANCY!!!! said...

I think the answer is 'a returning friend'. I took the first letters of the words, and put them together. The words with numbers in front of them, i went that many letters ahead or behind in the alphabet from the first letter.

I found this one really easy except for one thing... I got "A Returning Frcend" Instead of "A Returning Friend." The little doodle looks like a dear to me and d - 1 = c. I just can't think of what starts with a j and looks like the doodle. Please, this one is going to drive me crazy; what is it?

Coral M said...

i agree with ILUVNANCY!!!!
It most definitely has to be a returning friend. the first time i tried i got friead because i thought it was acorn. Once i changed it to nut it made complete sense.

I was kinda sad about how easy that was.
A Returning Friend!
But it was fun :)

A returning friend, huh? I bet that means someone from one of the games will be in TMB. *Gasp.* It would be so cool if it was Emily, from Message in the Haunted Mansion. She is a traveler for her newspaper. :)

I had to think about it but hubby helped me out(he's good with puzzles)!

Looks like this puzzle was a good balance of "confusing" and easy!

I will explain just a tad more in the next post to come.

@"The Next Carolyn Keene": I promise I will make it up to you next weekend by making it super hard. It will have to be because the next puzzle will have a big important message in the answer. ~.^

Mary that doodle is not a deer it`s a jackalope, like little Jackalope`s picture, but I guess it does sort of look like a deer. j-1 = i. thats the i in friend.

Coral M said...

Hey Mary the thing that looks like a deer is actually a jackalope.

Karen said...

noooooooooooo! Don't leave us in suspense...:)

I got a returning friend. And for those who got confused with mispelling the word friend at the end it was supposed to be a Jackalope not a reindeer. Hope this helps.

Little Jackalope said...

I suppose it does look a little like a deer...

:-/ But that was to trip you up. ~.^

Mary said...

Jackalope!!!! Thank you!!!
