Our Christmas puzzle has once again caused a bit of a stir…we’ve been cheered, sworn at, had mince pies thrown at the computer screen and been blamed for lack of sleep and over indulgence of mulled inspiration. So job done we reckon.
And our winners are very happy bunnies (note the Easter theme already). The top prize was a lithium trolley set for the main puzzle, and a lead acid set for the winner of the hidden Santa competition. We’ve let them know, so if you haven’t heard from us yet, we’re very sorry it’s not you. So, Allan W. from Llandudno and Chris O. from Solihull, well done you clever, twisted minded people – once you let us know what colour you fancy your GoKarts will be on their way.
Special mention should go to one GoKart owner who instructed us, in the event of him winning, we shouldn’t ship the trolley, but make a donation to a suitable charity. Well he didn’t win but we trust that he’ll get some nice karma from that…
Winner of the most obscure answer was Mal Lace, who deduced that the hidden Santa was Mariah Carey. Don’t ask. It’s just wrong. He did explain and his logic is some of the strangest we’ve come across in the five years we’ve done the puzzle. We like that. He’s going to get an Easter egg as soon as we can find one.
“What a great and fiendish puzzle. You made our Christmas.” “Great quiz. Tough as usual”. “Now I can concentrate on Christmas”.”Fun for the whole family and the subject of much discussion and swearing”. “Cripes I’ll need a wig if next year’s is as tough”. “I am sort of sad it’s over”.”Totally exasperating, I hate you”.
With massive thanks to Joe Davies (Creo) who once again put the puzzle together for us. Creo’s other puzzles are on his own site – Riddlex.
The puzzle is still live and can be accessed here, no prizes now, just for masochistic pleasure.
