Given the announcement of Aaron Rodgers’ megabucks deal today, I’m going back to a numeric puzzle to honor #12. Perhaps in more ways than one… You may need to do some minor research to solve this one, but it doesn’t necessarily need the internet.
Another weekend, another whirlwind trip. This one started by heading from home to O’Hare Airport, Chicago, at 3:30 AM Saturday morning. Tonight, technically early tomorrow, I catch the 12:30 AM flight from Phoenix and arrive home at 6:30 AM Monday, just in time to get to work. In between, I’m visiting Tucson, AZ and Las Cruces, NM. Busy weekend, but well worth it!
Today’s puzzle is inspired by all the Laffy Taffy jokes I’ve read over the years. Perhaps more a joke than a riddle, I’m hoping this will inspire at least a few seconds of thought. Good luck!
July 28, 2018 – Immediately after getting back to New York City from Connecticut, I set my sights on New Jersey. I headed immediately for Penn Station, only having a minute or two to stop and try New York style pizza (which I admit I prefer over Chicago style, sue me). One of the trains was canceled, so the station was in chaos and I had to fight my way onto the train for the privilege of standing on a crammed train car. With the little space I had, I slipped my phone out of my pocket and booked a […]
Finally, this week’s puzzle is ready. Yesterday was a crazy day, and I apologize for missing the normal schedule. But it’s ready now, so dig in!
Just wanted to give notice that my weekly riddle this week will be delayed. I expect a new one to be posted about 11:30 PM Thursday 8/16.
July 28, 2018 – Grabbing a coffee at Culture Espresso in New York City, I pull out my phone and scan over a map of the northern metro rail. New Haven appears to be the biggest city in Connecticut on the line… but Stamford is a lot closer. I cross-check “Stamford” and “escape room”, and voila: Trap’t!
This week’s puzzle is thematically similar to last week’s- interesting geography with key context clues removed. How will you fare this time? Give it your best shot.
July 28, 2018 – I landed in LaGuardia, nabbed a metro pass from the kiosk, and headed for Manhattan. I hadn’t the faintest plan at the time of when to do what, so I was pleasantly surprised that OMEscape had a reasonably early group I could join up with. After exploring Times Square briefly, I took a quick walk to OMEscape and signed in.
Well… That was an adventure. I booked a flight to New York City and a flight back from Washington DC with not a detail planned in between. Somehow, it all worked out. I had a lot of fun, with tons of surprises along the way. I’ll be making separate posts regarding the escape rooms I solved in each city; for now this is just a summary of how I got around.
