The chosen winner for this question will win a $100 gift certificate for the cool photoprinting site Canvaspop! So, without further ado…
Chapter Eight: Lightshow
I wasn’t even going to bother with the traditional warning. Nor was I going to try and actually blow the house down by breathing on it. I rushed the house, preparing to swing my massive furry paw and…
I was suddenly surrounded by three bright lights, one yellow, one magenta, and one cyan. The light was coming from crystals set in the ground that I’d overlooked in my haste. …Continue reading this article…
Here we are… The final day of our birthday quiz, on the final day of our birthday month. We’ve been consistently amazed by your powers of deduction these last few weeks. There were times when people in the MOO office couldn’t work out the answers even when the solutions were in front of them.

Chapter Seven: The Road Less Travelled
As I travelled towards the final house my wolfish senses became confused. The trail split, came back together, split again, …Continue reading this article…

When you rearranged the tangram into the shape of a house, what landscape was revealed? Who painted it?
‘Riders in the Landscape’ by Edgar Degas
What’s Guin’s password?
Charles Darwin. (chard – d) + Les (dart – t) + (window – DOW).
And so we come to the last quiz question on the penultimate day. The password found, what next for our would-be conqueror? We soldier on with his story as his frustrations continue…
Chapter Six: Hey ho, Nobody Home
I shouldn’t have been surprised that when I gave them the password, I got no response. But I was. Just a little. But instead of waiting I went into action, furiously tearing my way into the house. Just like the house before, there was no one here. But a cryptic note awaited me…

The questions in our cryptic quiz continue for those of you bravely following Twingor’s Tale. A traditional story, untraditionally told – but how will it end?
Chapter Five: The Password
I finally found the house. Inside I could smell the hedgehog and bears, as well as a guinea pig and some mice. I roared the traditional greeting, “Let me in, let me in, or I’ll blow your house in!”
There really was no latitude on this point. The structure must be maintained exactly in these sorts of tales. Otherwise, …Continue reading this article…
It’s the penultimate day of our quiz! Just 6 more questions left to go, starting right now.
We continue on with Twingor’s Tale…
Chapter Four: Guin’s House
They could run, but they could not hide. My wolfish snout pointed out their trail better than any signpost, so following them was simple. And because the journey between houses isn’t covered directly by the story of the three little pigs, making it to the island didn’t even prove to be a problem, despite having been unable to swim across the hedgehog’s moat just moments before.
My first impression of the island wasn’t favorable. The landscape …Continue reading this article…

Yes – we’ve made it to 60! That’s a lot of questions. I think we’ve almost broken our ace clue-writer, Corvus, but he’s hanging on in there for these last few days, so keep up! On with the show, and Twingor’s Tale…
Chapter Three: The Winds of Change
The pause went on much longer than I expected. Not knowing what else to do, I went back to the script, “Let me in, let me in, or I’ll blow your house in!”
Still nothing. In fact, there was no noise at all. No trembling, no breathing, no nothing. Even the smell of fear was beginning to dissipate. I kicked down the door and stormed inside. The house showed signs of a hasty …Continue reading this article…
We continue on with Twingor’s rather scary story. Answer this correctly, and you could win one of these new photography books, Collins Complete Photography Manual. Beautifully designed hardback books, they contain a mix of photographic tips and tricks.
Chapter Two: Or I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff
Once at the house, I knew I could break it to pieces easily. Inside I could smell the fear. The trembling of the bears practically shook the house off its foundation. I may have only been a wolf at the moment, but if I could drag them back to the Third Zone, I’d make sure they had plenty to be frightened of.
But first things first–there were rules after all. “Let …Continue reading this article…
