Re: Kingpriam's Treasue Hunters: USS Optimus Prawn (find it by Dec. 10th, 10am pst)

Hmmmm, I'll just try, though I have no hope of actually winning, it seems too much of a stretch:

What is the treasure? clawfoot tub
Who is Chalky Miles? (just gonna go with the "inventor") John Michael Kohler
When was the USS Optimus Prawn built? 1883 (kohler started selling enameled tubs)
What was it's nickname? (according to the catalogue back then) a horse trough/hog scalder, when furnished with four legs will serve as a bathtub.


Ok, so I just found the hog scalder amusing, sue me...

This is what happens when I make them too easy! (*cough* *cough*)

Darkaardvark was sooooo close! Remember that the treasure is "generally" the item you will receive. As the game doesn't allow for dinghys such a treasure could not exist...unless specified otherwise. :)

Baldo got all the correct answers...good job you crazy loon.

Spinbad will receive a ship in a bottle for his insanely creative answer.

Find me in game to receive your prizes.

THE NEXT PUZZLE IS GREATER TREASURE!!! Prepare your brains!

Aye, I'm a little bit of a late arrival to the game and didn't catch that. Of wells! Thanks for stealing my answers, subsequent posters! *shakes fist* Just kidding. But be ready for me next time.

Well....

You ever get one of those puzzles where as soon as you see it the answer becomes apparent? That's what I saw!

Spin-desperately trying to hide the method to his madness.
