Question

Posted · Report post

Here is a series of riddles in the form of a story. When one riddle is solved, the next one will be added. Have fun :D

Mr. Greedy was walking down a beach with a metal detector hoping to find some small trinket that might be worth some money. He suddenly stopped as his alarm started to blare. He excitedly dropped to his knees and started to dig. What he found was unlike anything he had imagined. It was a piece of bamboo with a metal bottom and a cork inserted in the top. He brought it home quite frustrated after he had spent his saturday looking for a way to make money, and instead found this. Sighing, he decided to open it. Inside was a note

To, too, two, five two. Kayak, Racecar too, eight, seven. The two three- can a?

- Dave one two 59, 55.1 mins.

Intruged, he decided it was probably a riddle, and there just might be a lot of money at the end.

There are two hidden words in this riddle. Discover them and you have solved the riddle

Have fun! ;)

it seems to me that the item found (a piece of cork with a metal bottom and a cork plug) might be an important find.

Maybe a old fishing rod or a toy gun?

To, too, two, five two. Kayak, Racecar too, eight, seven. The two three- can a?

- Dave one two 59, 55.1 mins.

o.Kay = 'okay'?

22, 25.2?

Is the second word found by using existing letters in the same order as 'Canada' was or is there some sort order they go in? I'm assuming that there is some sort of code in the numbers that states where to start or something. . .?

Okay, the two words are totally separate. :D the second word can be found first or second, it doesn't matter. you will only need what is on the note in order to solve this

sorry importmonkey, but no. i only gave the north coordinate, not the west with it. the next coordinate comes once you find out what the other word is :D Edit: no it is not cracker : )
Think Grammar

Grammar brings up homonyms...like to, two and too...sooooo

Eight, ate

one, won

I figured out KaRaet (kt) and I am sure the min and the end has to do with diamonds.

Not sure how to put it all together and how to read the #'s yet.

Does the clue have to do with homonyms or homophones?

does the capitalization of certain words have anything to do with the 2nd part of the riddle?

And I thought pallindromes were words or phrases you could spell both forward and backward? If that's true, then nineteen is not a pallindrome.

does the dash/es signify a break/gap on the word

should I be doing any arithmetic?

on the bottom, the "one" is a homophone of "won", so it could be implying something about winning a race (racecar/kayak)

dash does not infer adding, and capitalization has nothing to do with it. :D

i don't get the significance of the word "trinket" in the story - you said that everything we needed to solve the first riddle was in the note he found...?

Unless "teknirt" is a word that means something...but I doubt it.
