The Interrogation of Mr. Bunny
Here at the JiG Headquarters, we take challenges very seriously. When there's one donut left in the break room, it's usually Jay who wins it in the arm wrestling competitions. Dora usually sweeps the box hockey tournaments, and Tricky is surprisingly adept at solving crossword puzzles while hanging upside-down. But when a visitor stopped by HQ over the weekend and left us a challenge, we went berzerk.
Unfortunately, our efforts in finding the visitor's hidden treasure came up fruitless, not to mention eggless. So, being the genial and competitive folks that we are, we felt it only proper that the visitor, one Mr. E. Bunny, should spill any relevant information that we needed. We went straight into JiG HQ's infamous Room 214B (also the storage room for joye's muffin contest trophies) for a little grilling.
We've made a transcript of the interrogation, and we think there's enough information to locate where the final egg lies. It may look like Mr. Bunny clammed up and gave us no information, but in his own devious way, he's answered every question with a yes or no response. The question is, can you crack his code and find the hidden egg?
Take a look at the interrogation transcript and see what details you can wring out of his vague responses. If you can find the review page on which he hid his egg, submit its location AND an explanation of Mr. Bunny's code, along with your Casual Gameplay account name to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll give the first person to correctly crack the code plus four other randomly selected correct entries a prize for their efforts. As with all our contests, you must be at least 13 years of age to enter. Void where prohibited. You've only got until Friday, April 29th at 11:59 PM (GMT-5:00) to get your answers in, so get cracking!
Your investigations have proved fruitful, and we can release the answers! The egg was hidden on the review page for Mr. Bounce. And what was Mr. Bunny's code? The key was to remember that every answer had a yes or no response embedded within. Here, "yes" responses are represented by the letter Y appearing before the letter N in a response, while the "no" responses had an N first. If you followed this code, you would get five pieces of information:
- The review was written by zxo
- The game is similar to Breakout
- The game is named for Mr. Bunny's "accomplice" (a bit of wordplay, there)
- The game's developer is slightly "pixelated" (namely, Pixelate)
- The game was reviewed in 2008
All of the other questions, which yielded "no" responses, were red herrings. In fairness, when selecting our winners, we accepted other explanations that didn't match the Y/N theory listed above, as long as they resulted in the five facts above being marked as "yes" responses, and the other eight as "no."
Congratulations! to the following winners:
- dhaisud — was the very first person to send in the correct answer, and very shortly after we posted the contest. Excellent work! :)
