After discussing the proposal to extend this game to a black-out, we the 'puppet masters' think that's a great idea.

So after "double cross' is done, the draws will continue until the first complete and correct full card is made.

BUT. (there is always a but)....

Sorry to say the Double Cross Winner will not be eligible for a prize on the Black-out, as most likely they will have a lot of correct squares, and will have had those squares validated from the Double Cross Game.

Which brings us to the 2nd 'but'.
A player who calls a black-out has one and only one chance to call the game. Your card is correct or not. No feedback. So the first person to get the locations as I intended will be the winner. Looking at the current guesses I'd say that people are getting into my head (or sharing maybe?) and coming up with the right places.

Good Luck!

BUG Alert maybe

If one puts quotation marks " " around text in the notes section of a square, the text seems to disappear and is not saved.

Or maybe it is just us.

I was surprised how many people got the hard ones and not the easy ones. I actually got one wrong. Instead of Stonehenge, I went for Salsbury Crag above Edinburough.

Would Woodhenge have worked for the Stonehenge Ales? They are located in the village closest to Woodhenge. I took the Would to mean wood on that one.

If you search google for d0de94b4 you will get a listing for empirestatebuilding.com

The hex translate into an ip address and the ip address belongs to them.

It had an x0 in front of it. I think that signifies a constant or something like that. It took a bit of work to figure that one out.

Dependnig on browser/dns server this would open Empirestate.com
