how my hunt is going

Calling puzzle hq:

"Can we get a hint on [puzzle name]? We have this phrase and we don't know what to do with it." "What do you have?" "[phrase]" "Did you try calling *that* in?" "No." "I'd try that."

We had [phrase] like 24 hours ago. Oops.

The hints are free for anyone who's far enough behind.

One of these years I have to do this, at least be the Word Puzzle Expert On Call for a team. Sigh.

Without rot13'ing it back, that looks right. :)

Last year's hunt, we got the word "needlepoint" from the radio transmitter in lobby 7, and based on the photographs, we were convinced we had to do something additional with it. After the Hunt was over, we learned that the something additional was "call it in."
