I need help with Treasure #9. The clue seems to point to [removed a spoiler here] but I haven't been successful in locating it.




It probably wasn't really a spoiler but I thought it would be more fun to assure you that you had the right site in the silly clue below. --Greg

Oh goody! An excuse to compose more Bad Poetry! Grin

    For the good of the republic
    We fight things nefarious
    With large chunks of hardware
    All sundry and various.
    With confidence we go,
    Knowing just what to do
    Sally forth to find goodies
    For our game, The Sims 2.
    So on into battle with vigor we stroll
    To get to the bottom no matter the scroll!

Hmm... that's a bit martial for Christmastide, but what the heck, it was fun! lol

But did it help?

Doesn't seem to help. The Christmas clue points to Treasure #3 while the hardware clue points to Treasure #5. Neither points to #9

Oops! Some times I'm too clever for my own good! I hadn't thought of hardware referring to computers. (On the other hand, I don't really get the one about "burn your Christmas dinner," either. That would imply the stoves section, which ain't it.)

Let's try another bit of Bad Poetry!
    Continuing our quest, we say in defiance,
    "Surrender to us your brand-new appliance!"
    "We don't want a stove or something spontaneous!"
    "Bring us a thing that's quite miscellaneous!"

Yeah, that's bad. That's really bad! Rolling on the Floor Laughing

Oh, and note that on that web page, there's a field that has its own scroll bar. You need to stretch your window pretty wide to see it. To get to the bottom of it on my 1024x768 screen, I had to scroll down the whole window a bit, and then scroll down the field, and then back to the main window to scroll down some more, and finally back to the field.

Grin I was trying to come up with a rhyme for "appliances" LOL
Thankfully....I didn't have to.

Yeah, I puzzled over that one for a while, too! lol

There's quite a lesson learned in the original bad poetry clue, too. Nay cleverly implied something about looking for appliances, but since [that site] has both a "Stoves" section and a "Miscellaneous Appliances" section, the clue doesn't work.

It made sense to me when I was reviewing the clues, but that was because I already knew where the button was hiding. I'm developing much more respect for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!
