Shaley was devastated. Last night her father died and left her $100,000. Her father left a note to where the money was, but she couldn't understand what it meant. She immediately called Detective Bowen.

When Detective Bowen arrived, he took the note from Shaley. It said:

Take 21 tissues off the desk.
You will see 14 pictures on the 4th floor.
Go 5 steps to your left.
Proceed down 18 stairs.
Take 20 paces towards the study.
You will see 8 stone eagles, 5 of which are flightless.
Tell them each 13 stories of 1 pirate.
After that, spin around 19 times.
Walk 20 steps outside to the 5th tree you see.
There will be 18 branches by the 2nd water fountain.
Finally, you should see 5 girls and 4 boys.

"I don't understand what he wrote in his letter, Detective", Shaley said, "it doesn't make any sense!"

"Don't worry", said Detective Bowen, "I know exactly where your money is."

How does Detective Bowen know where the money is?

I kept ignoring everything but the movement instructions, and winded up 18 steps outside looking up at a tree. Buried treasure!?

Not even close.

I thought it was going to be that you had to take the letter from the sentence that was that number, so in the first one it wouldbe the 21st letter etc...

im so stupid I didnt realize the number thing and I usually do!!! Thats what I get for being n at 100 PM

Apr 06, 2008

nice, but to make it harder, have the 'riddle' seem more like an actual treasur hunt. otherwise it'd be easy to tell that the numbers were the main thing, end esp. 1-26, a-z.

Mar 26, 2011

The hint wasn't of much use to me cuz i immediately realized the text was useless. But I couln't figure out what exactly the numbers meant! Nice one!

Got it without the hint, but I was too lazy to calculate the letters.

I found it pretty easy because there was no way to accurately analyze the directions, but there were lots and lots of numbers waiting to be decoded...

I couldn't figure it out...very good one! I found it funny that it sounds like she is "devastated" because she can't figure out where the $100,000 is.
