Mystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
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?
HintForget the text, the numbers are important.
In the note, the numbers represent letters of the alphabet. For example, 1=A. So the numbers in the note read, "Under the master bed".

|very nice teaser my answer was totally off the actual answer. good job |
Apr 27, 2007
|very nice, i actually got that right because i was hoping someone would use the alphabet to stand for numbers |

|HI cammy!!!! I love this teaser it is so cool!!!!! it is so brilliant!|
Apr 30, 2007
|loved it! |
Apr 30, 2007
|I was all confused and just looked at the answer never would think that would be in mystery! more like cryptography except easier|
May 02, 2007
|I had to look at the hint to get it|
May 03, 2007
|That was confusing!|
May 05, 2007
|You had me confused with that one. I had a fun time with it!!|
May 09, 2007
|i loved it! great job!!! |
May 11, 2007
|...OH. Clever, but not exactly fit for a nerfhead like me!|
May 20, 2007
|really hard, but fun|
May 22, 2007
|coolio! i love these kinds of teasers! they're so fun!|
May 23, 2007
|lol i didn't even try to solve it but it's funny. I would be sooooo mad because I'd never figure that out |

|Shouldn't he have just left all his money in the bank?|
Jun 03, 2007
|haha.. very nice...I surely LOVED it!!! it's SOOO cool!!! |
Jun 10, 2007
|I kept ignoring everything but the movement instructions, and winded up 18 steps outside looking up at a tree. Buried treasure!? |
Not even close.
Jun 12, 2007
|had 2 take d hint b4 i cud hav figured it out! But once d hint was given, it was smooth sailing from there! |
Jun 13, 2007
|Good one Cam |
Jun 16, 2007
|I have to say number/letters where the first thing that sprung to mind! I was surprised as ususally I get stumped! clever clever! Cant believe I actually got it! what the!?|
Jun 16, 2007
|haha that was cool!!! |
Jun 18, 2007
|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...|
Jun 21, 2007
|cool! this is a new type of decodation! (is decodation even a word?) |
Jun 28, 2007
|I just have a hard time with these math ones. I will try harder next time.|
Jul 06, 2007
|Nice and fun. Great teaser!!!!|
Jul 17, 2007
|Im pathetic!i want to be a detective but i couldnt fiqure even this out!!! |
Jul 19, 2007
|it was a little hard |
Aug 02, 2007
|you are so good at this!|
Aug 15, 2007
|guessed it right away, although it took some time to go through the letters one by one |
Aug 28, 2007
|Very, very clever indeed! |
Sep 10, 2007
|i was onto somthing there about the numbers and letters but its to clever for me a doughball thats me lol!!!!!!!! |
Sep 28, 2007
|very hard. i didn't get it and wasn't even on the right track! |
Oct 06, 2007
Oct 08, 2007
|Her father must have been insane!! (:|
Nov 07, 2007
|clever!! I liked that one! |
Nov 26, 2007
|ez ezz ezz eezz eez eez ez zzee |

|i only got it right because i was hoping someone would use that code! (A=1 B=2, etc.) I was so excited when i got through "under" that i missed some letters and ended up with "UNDER TE MATTRSS" |
Dec 23, 2007
|Nice teaser once again grilledcheeese, |
Feb 16, 2008
|nice teaser grilledcheese!|
Mar 01, 2008
|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.|
Jun 24, 2008
|SourDough gives this one "3 thumbs up" for originality and for stumping ol' $D |
Very good mystery!, yes indeed!
Jul 04, 2008
|i could just kick myself... |
Sep 29, 2008
Just as I tought, It was the answer.
Feb 26, 2011
|Got it with the hint|
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! |
Dec 30, 2011
|I thought the numbers are the code to his locker.Very good teaser.|
Jan 25, 2012
|Got it without the hint, but I was too lazy to calculate the letters. |
Jan 16, 2013
|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... |
Aug 04, 2013
|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.|
