A RIEDEL Clue ~ One

A RIEDEL Clue

 

I hereby launch the first activity for “My Kind Of Mystery” guests:
A RIEDEL Clue!  You may join right up until February 28, 2015.

RIEDEL challenges are about interacting together, in a fun outlet with prizes shared internationally.  They consist of treats from here at home, options that I hope appeal to everyone.  :)  Book taste is so personalized.  I also like the reward of contests that aren’t random.

A RIEDEL Clue gives you 2 days to catch my post.  Alert me, by e-mail, if you have solved it:  AlyshaeB[at]hotmail[dot]com.  Don’t post any guesses in the comment box.  Success swings to those who have a leg up first!

You may use the comment box to request:  “Hint Please” and also chat to your heart’s content.  If 48 hours elapse without a winner, a hint will ensue.  The subsequent round will then be granted 2 days.  If a round garners more than one winning answer, a draw shall be conducted among those.

I am in North American central standard time.
You have 48 hours to solve this riddle, or request a hint, starting…  NOW!

****  CONCLUDED.  I HAD FUN WITH OUR PLAYERS!  ****

  1. Is it too early to ask for a hint, PLEASE!!!

  2. Disregard the hint request….I think I may have figured it out – I sent an email…

  3. Good morning competitors! A hint may be requested as early as you wish. I give two days to see if anyone solves a clue in the first round. Then a hint would follow. On our first occasion: everyone has sent answers without it. In nine hours, I will hand draw a prize-winner, from among all e-mailers! :)

  4. A note from your hostess: I am pleased you played our very first game and thank you heartily. It was hard work on a slow connection but I advised every member to check our primary page, so they would see this activity underway; via their blog or Goodreads. From now on: are you content to subscribe or watch this blog, or would you like me to e-mail you when a festivity is taking place? Shoot a note to the e-address above to let me know. I had fun and hope you did too! Yours Truly, Carolyn.

    Carolyn with your slow internet connection I would say if anyone is interested they can subscribe or watch! Looks like you will have to set a time limit and then draw again. At any rate it’s fun no matter what!

    I sent an email reply and did not specify anything as I like surprises.
