This week, we're dedicating our Letters In Boxes challenge to an event that occurred on July 4th, this week's contest deadline. Many Americans mark this historical date by remembering spacious skies, amber waves of grain, and purple mountain majesties above fruited plains. Of course, we all know July 4th as the day we mourn the passing of Bob Ross, who taught us all how to paint beautiful landscapes in the comfort of our own homes. We will always remember Mr. Ross and his contributions to society, including his delightfully fluffy afro. Thanks, Bob.
Right then, who's ready for this week's puzzles? Take a look at this week's sliver of a starting puzzle. If you click on the image, you can open it up in a new window. Once you think you've got the answer sorted out, redirect your attention to your browser's address bar (which in this case reads "http://images.jayisgames.com/lettersinboxes/fivealive.gif"). Change the filename (namely, "fivealive") to your answer, using all lower-case letters and no spaces (make sure you use the same extension and directory). If you're right, it's a happy cloud for you and you're off to the next puzzle! If you're wrong, you'll have to cover up some of that excess burnt sienna by going back and trying again.
This batch of puzzles contains the standard four puzzles to solve. On the fourth puzzle, you'll find the email address for sending your final answer. We'll hand out a prize to the first correct entry we receive, plus ten additional randomly-selected correct entries. Please include your Casual Gameplay account display name with your entry. You must be at least 13 years of age to enter. Only one submission per participant, please. Offer void where prohibited. Your deadline for submitting your answers is Monday, July 4th at 11:59 PM (GMT-5:00). If you're fast or lucky, you could be celebrating with a prize, so good luck!
Update: Congratulations to these 11 winners! :D
All eleven winners were given a choice of prizes or an entry into a GRAND PRIZE drawing to be held at the end of August! Congratulations and thanks for playing with us! Look for another Letters in Boxes again soon!
