Are we to guess and then post our answer, or is the next clue found where the correct answer is?

If it is the former, then CEP, .... if it is the later, then (as seems so typical of my life), I am clueless.

When you find the correct answer, the next clue is in that thread/post. Find that answer and get the next clue.. and so on, and so on. :)

@Squircle and anyone else who get's stuck, a general suggestion is to take a look through the site map. It may help you figure things out.

quick question, are all the rhymes at the top of the post or do we need to go digging?

Kestin

Well, I've been on the fifth clue for half an hour. Maybe some lunch will shed some light on it. And here I wondered what I was going to do with myself today...

Deatherella: So far they've all been edited into the top of the post. I expect it's the same for the rest of them (does anyone know how many there are?).

That's what I thought, just making sure so I'm not closing search threads and losing the next clue.

I'm stuck on the 5th, too.

Same, fifth clue, except its been somewhere around three hours. Maybe it doesn't exist at all! Nah I'm sure it does. But what if it actually doesn't! It does! It doesn't! It does! It doesn't! Agggghhhh!

Can someone who gets it explain to me "I gained two points for eating 200?"
Is this in reference to aspiration points?

I'm stuck on clue number 4 :-( And here I was hoping for an early night before work tomorrow..... :-P

**ETA** Ah ha! Found it! This is awesome :-) How many clues are there? I could do with an ETA for my bed time..... :-D

You aren't the only one who's stuck on that clue about 2 points for eating 200.

Aw yeah!!

This was awesome, some of these were so tricky! But I got to the end! Yay me!

I'm stuck on the 2 points for eating 200, too. I haven't really played Sims 2 though so I'm confused.

Wolf91
1st Apr 2015, 9:03 PM
Stuck on the 5th one too. I even naughtily tried to cheat by using Google, but to no avail :p

Love the Great Idea's Day idea, even if I'm not getting very far with it...

Edit: Finally did it, with a LOT of help. But I've also learned how to use the site map, and how to properly use the search features too! :lol:

justJones
1st Apr 2015, 9:09 PM
I will tell you, for those who've asked, there are 14 clues, counting the one in this post.

As to clue number 5...Muahahahahahahahaha...you'll get no hint from me. Though @Squircle is sort of on the right wave length at least....

lauratje86
1st Apr 2015, 9:10 PM
I don't know anything about The Sims 4, which makes Sims 4 clues pretty tricky. Sims 2 is my strongest point, and I know a little about Sims 3, but now I'm starting to wish I was more familiar with The Sims 4 as well! I never thought that anything would make me wish I'd bought it! :-D

**ETA** Sort of thank you, justJones :-P But isn't the clue that Squircle is talking about the 4th clue?

justJones
1st Apr 2015, 9:15 PM
Well, I think as long as you sort of know the site, the clues should be ok. It's mostly the same set of areas for each game. So if you know what's here for 2, the same should be for 4, for the most part ;)

lauratje86
1st Apr 2015, 9:51 PM
Bah, I'm stuck again :-( I wish I'd thought to keep track of how many clues I've done!

**ETA** I've written a list to find out - and I'm completely stuck on what I think is the last clue! No fair! :'-(

Deatherella
1st Apr 2015, 9:56 PM
I found it! I found it!

Now, to go get stuck on another one . . .

Squircle
1st Apr 2015, 10:03 PM
I won't name who it was because I don't want people swarming them with "WHERE IS THE ANSWER TO THIS" messages, but shoutout to the person who got me past the fifth clue, was stuck on that one for hours! You got me a good chunk of the way through, but stuck on clue nine now. Not asking for an answer, just an update!
And for those of you stuck on various clues, keep digging! I know you can get through them all! I believe in you!

Update to my update: Now actually stuck stuck on clue eleven. =[

Update after the update to my update: I'm going to regret it but someone throw me a hint for clue eleven. :report: :help:

Let's see, I've been hunting since about 7:30 this morning, it's now about 3:30...have I really been doing this for 8 hours!?

Deatherella
1st Apr 2015, 11:38 PM
I don't know what number I'm on anymore.
But the one I'm stuck on, I know right were to go find what it describes on another site.

Now, to figure out what they mean for it here.

lionessgirl
1st Apr 2015, 11:44 PM
Yeah, I've been stuck on the 200 points one for about six hours now...

Kestin
1st Apr 2015, 11:49 PM
A hint for those stuck on #5: what might a Sim eat 200 of?

Even with the answer to that in mind, though, the next clue is pretty hard to stumble on. It's not in an intuitive location like the others have been (unless you can parse the first few lines, unlike myself, who found them too vague to work with). Try searching in other ways. (I'm stuck on #9 now. Would appreciate a hint :P )

EDIT: ...It seems that I accidentally found the answer to clue #10 while looking for clue #5. Uh. You can probably ignore this post. >_< Now I'm all combobbled. On the bright side, it means I'm a few ahead? I guess? I'm gonna have to sort out where exactly I am right now after some dinner. Aiee.

Squircle
1st Apr 2015, 11:53 PM
If you need a subtle hint, I do have a work-in-progress hint guide in my journal via my profile. If you're a trooper and don't want to be hinted, just don't check it out. =]

Chicken0895

Thank you Squircle! I would have never found the next clue because I don't really pay attention to that part of the site. Now I can move on.

Kestin
2nd Apr 2015, 12:25 AM
*sigh* Well, as I edited into an earlier post, I apparently jumped ahead a few clues, completely by accident. The bright side of this is that it means I'm on the final clue. The downside is that I thought that was clue #9 (or something; I'm so done with numbers), so now I'm back to square one in the "what?" department.

Don't use the "search entire site" function, kids. It'll get you all tangled up.

Found it, too.

Now, those eggs at that other hunt . . . from today and yesterday . . .

And, you know, I actually came onto the site this morning to put new swatches on my new upload and was distracted. I finished marking the spot with an X any-hoo.

Arrrrrrr.

I found all of them from the first day, none from the second and two early this morning and was stumped. Came onto MTS and found a way more fun hunt that I could make at least have a clue about the clues.
