2012 Clue Book - Arizona Treasure Hunt
The
2012
Treasure
Hunt
Thank you for participating in the 62nd annual edition of the Treasure Hunt
in the Valley of the Sun. This year`s committee sincerely hopes you enjoyed
your evening of `Game Over` themed fun.
Each year, the top three ‘amateur status’ teams are recognized at the postHunt banquet. In addition, the performances of some other teams, including
‘professional status’ teams and ‘rookie teams’ may be recognized.
The prizes awarded the winners throughout the years have had little
monetary value, yet the competition for first place remains spirited. The red
Wizard Hats awarded to Treasure Hunt winners have become prized
possessions in many trophy cabinets. Each first-place winner also earns the
fleeting privilege and immense responsibility of serving a three-year term on
the Treasure Hunt Committee.

will direct you to Clue B.
This is emergency solution 19, which will lead you to Clue B.
Lots of names, lots of numbers, which ones are important? Clever hunters will soon realize they must find
the distance from where they are now to another point on the map, but which point and which path should
you take? Time to consult the HWOW for anything related to this map. To find the correct path and
destination you should follow Buzz Lightyear’s famous directive, “To Infinity & Beyond!” Calculate the
distance from “You are here”(Meritage Homes) to Infinity (Infiniti of Scottsdale (2.2)) & Beyond (Bed,
Bath & Beyond (23.8) ). If you added correctly, you will come up with 26.0.
Now follow your new and improved 2012 TH map to

Hopefully your team purchased all the items at check-out. If you did, you will have a piece of bread to
toast. Once your bread is toasted you’ll find this is no ordinary toaster. This toaster imprints an “X” and a
“Square” on your bread. Hmm. The letter X? No. A multiplication symbol? Yes. You have “Times” and
“Square” imprinted on your toast, which means this is a “Times Square Toaster.” Who is the most
famous Times Square Toaster? Dick Clark. You may recall or have noticed from your Brown Bag list
that he passed away this year. Dick Clark was famous for not only ringing in the New Year at Times
Square but also as host of American Band Stand.
So head over to the D. Clark St and find your next clue at the
(American Bandstand).
Circle
is located in Map Grid F-13 From the intersection of Deer Valley Rd. and Cave Creek
Rd, proceed 1.0 miles W to 16th St (D. Clark St.). Turn S on 16th St., bearing right as the Rd curves, for

Shapes with numbers which appear to be dimensions. Looks like it’s time to go back to geometry class!
Observant teams will find that the Brown Bag contains a sheet which describes how to calculate the area
of various shapes. Luckily, this clue contains all of the dimensions necessary to calculate the area for four
of the five shapes. The question mark on the base of the triangle indicates that the length is the solution to
the clue. But to find the length, you need to know the area. Do not despair! Wise teams will use the Brown
Bag sheet to find the area of the other four shapes and find that a pattern emerges: 928, 623, 480 and 520
are area codes in Arizona. To solve this clue, use the state’s original area code as the area of the triangle.
Using 602 in the equation gives a solution of
Circle

The Olympic Rings on this paper clue, the HWOW indicating Multiple Olympic Medalists, and the brown
bag article on Larisa Latynina should have helped you solve this clue. You need to assign a value to each
medal won: 3 points for Gold, 2 points for Silver, and 1 point for Bronze. What is the equation at the
bottom? Michael Phelps is now the individual with the most individual Olympic medals of all time. He
moved in front of Olympic gymnast Larisa Latynina. From watching the Olympics, you should know that
Michael Phelps has won in total 22 medals: 18 Gold Medals, 2 Silver Medals, and 2 Bronze Medals. In the
Brown Bag, you can determine Larisa’s Medal Count. Take number of medals won times the medal value
and then subtract Larisa’s value from Michael’s value.

Looks like someone went a little crazy with the brightness setting! Hunters who are fans of Broadway
musicals or users of Google recognized the line on the HWOW, “Life is a cabaret!” as the tagline for the
movie Cabaret, which came out 40 years ago. It won eight Oscars, one of which was Best Supporting
Actor for Joel Grey, whose fifty likenesses of varying brightness stare at you here. This clue, then, is fifty
shades of Grey. Hey, isn’t that the name of the best-selling book of the year? You bet it is. Luckily those
helpful Wizards included a NY Times Best Seller list in the Brown Bag in case you forgot that its author is
E.L. James and that it was on the list for 27 weeks.
No time for reading now, though. Hurry over to circle
entertainment.
on E.L. James Dr. for further
Circle
is located in Map Grid A-13. From the intersection of 35th Ave and Deer Valley Rd,
proceed N for 0.47 miles to a parking area on the W side of 35 th Ave, opposite of Williams Dr. (E.L. James
Dr.) There is a barricade on the W side of the parking area, beyond which is a gravel path leading W.
Follow the path 304 ft due W of the barricade until it ends at the large Mesquite tree.
If you are unable to locate Clue F, open emergency envelope 20, which will lead you to Clue G.

will direct you to Clue G.
This is emergency solution 20, which will lead you to Clue G.
At first, the hunter should notice a push-button switch on the black box. By pushing the switch, one LED
blinks at a constant rate. But the other LED remains off.
By now, the two round contacts should have the hunter thinking. In the Brown Bag, recall the set of
resistors mercifully provided by those thoughtful wizards. Placing one of the resistors onto the contacts
causes the second LED to blink. Replacing the resistor with each of the others provided in the Brown
Bag, the observant hunter will notice that the second LED flashes at a different rate. Eventually, one of
the resistors produces a pattern nearly identical to the pattern that the push-button switch flashes.
By studying your resistor codes (or cheating with a color code chart from the lat/lon website on HWOW or
any general physics book), the hunter will find that the color code (brown, black, orange) labels the
correct resistor as 10 KΩ.
So try to keep up and head over to circle
Circle
is located in Map Grid C-13. From the intersection of 19th Ave and Pinnacle Peak Rd,
travel east 0.10 miles to 18th Dr. Turn S on 18th Dr. and proceed for 0.09 miles to a circular dead end. The
clue site is 231 ft ESE of the center of the dead end under a Mesquite tree.

The motor heads on your team will recognize
the 11 domestic automobile makers logos, and
should be able to fill out the grid as shown.
At this point you may be tempted to head over
to circle Burro, but “Burro” should be sending
up red flags since that’s another word for
Jackass.
Sure enough if you went there you may have had your picture taken with one of our Jackass friends.
Instead if you had heeded the HWOW advice of “Don't use them if the were driven out of business” you
would have ignored those auto makers that are out of business (numbers 7 thru 11), leaving you with just
the clue “CIRCLE”. So drive your way over
Circle
is located in Map Grid B-10. From the intersection of N Valley Parkway and Copperhead
Trail drive east for 0.14 miles to Melvern Trail. Park in the pullout on the S side of Copperhead Trail.
From the barricade walk S 245 ft to the large Saguaro. The clue site is located in a wash 15 ft SE of the
large Saguaro and W of a Palo Verde tree.
If you are unable to locate Clue H, open emergency envelope 24 , which will lead you to Clue I.

Who knew that there was actually a record set for Most Participants in a Treasure Hunt?
Putting all of this together … a can of beer? Not just beer… a can of GUINNESS, … a Globe? No,
WORLD. Add that with the RECORD and you get GUINNESS WORLD RECORD. In your brown bag
there’s an article of the 2012 Record Holders with 466 participants. Go to 466? NO, your HWOW states
“Hunting is a team sport”, so go back to your article, and find that 466 treasure hunters split over 93
competing teams.
Drive on over to
Circle
is located in Map Grid B-7. From the intersection of N Valley Parkway and Sonoran
Desert Drive; drive E for 0.12 miles to the second of three pullouts on the N side of Sonoran Desert Drive.
From the light pole just E of the pullout walk N 260 ft until you cross a wash. The clue site is N of a clump
of Palo Verde trees.

When you first encountered the clue site, you may have missed the cardboard cut outs hung in the Palo
Verde tree. Once discovered, you noted that there were clouds, planes, a sun and a moon, all things that
belong in a sky. Sky and a tree. This should have made you think of the HWOW about the new tallest
structure in Tokyo, Japan, the Skytree. At 634 meters high, this makes it the tallest tower in the world.
Fly over to circle
Circle
is located in Map Grid E-6. From the intersection of Carefree Highway and 10th Street go

Hunters should quickly find the first four hidden items on the list. The flashlight at the bottom of the tent,
bowling ball around the fire pit, donkey standing on his head at the tent opening and tweezers on the
mountain peak. Having trouble finding the scorpion? Remember the HWOW, “Searching for something at
night, you might need a black light.” Desert dwelling hunters should know that scorpions glow at night
under a black light. You brought a black light, right? Use your black light to scan the picture. The scorpion,
stamped in invisible ink, will appear near the moon. Just to the right of the scorpion, the number 8, circled
by the moon, will also appear under the black light. A number, inside a circle?
The solution should be apparent now
Circle
is located in Map Grid H-4 From the intersection of Cloud Rd and 32nd St, drive W 160
ft on Cloud Rd. and park on the N side of Cloud Rd. The clue site is 160 ft W of the center line of

This is Clue K. Solving this clue will lead you to Clue L.
Battleship Rules
1. Battleship is a simple game of luck and skill. It is easy to play and can be learned within jjust a few minutes. At its
core, Battleshhip is just a simple guessingg game.
2. The object of the game is to sink your opponent’s ships beefore he sinks yours.
3. Each player begins by placing his five ships in “strateegic” loccations. The ships are placed on a standard 10x10 grid
which is generally labeled with Rows A-J and Columns 1-10.
4. Oncce the ships have been placed, players take turn “firing” shots. Neither player can seee his opponent’s ships, so
the player “fires” by calling out a grid location, for example “B-9.”
5. If a shot hits a ship, the player accknowledges by stating “Hhit” and then places a pegg into the hole in his ship (so
he can remember which shots have been called out by hiis opponent).
6. If the shot missed all of the ships, the player (smugly) responds “Miss” and places a peg into the hole on the
“occean”, the part of the board that doesn’t have ships placed on it.
7. When every spacce on a ship has been hit, the player says “You sunk my (type of ship).”
8. Play continues until one opponent has “sunk” all five of his opponent’s ships. At that point the game is over and the
player who still has surviving ships is declared the winner.
9. The winner then raises his arms in victory and shouts “I am the supreeme commander off the seas.”
So what is YOUR winning move?
If you are unable to solve this clue, or to find Clue L, open emergency envelope 3, which will
direct you to Clue L.
This is emergency solution 3, which will lead you to Clue L.
Based on the HWOW, you surely researched Battleship rules. So why have we listed them here?
The observant Hunter will notice that there are several misspellings in the list of rules. And each of the
misspellings is by means of a letter that is incorrectly repeated within a word. For example, in Rule 1, the
word “just” is spelled with two j’s as “jjust”. Similarly the word Battleship has an extra h and the word
guessing has an extra g at the end. So Rule 1 has an extra g, an extra h and an extra j. In turn you will find
that Rule 2 has an extra e, Rule 3 has an extra e and c, and so on. In your Brown Bag you will find what
looks like a Battleship Grid, and what you need to do is to place the “extra” letters on the grid. That is, the
extra letters in Rule 1 tell you to fill in cells G1, H1 and J1 as “hits”, Rule 2 tells you to fill in E2, etc.
Once you have identified all 16 misspellings and entered them in the grid, you will find a nearly complete
game of Battleship. There is just one shot remaining to sink your opponent’s final ship: the Battleship. The
cell to fire on is I1.
So raise your arms in victory as you shout
Circle
is located in Map Grid C-4. From the intersection of 19th Ave and Joy Ranch Rd, proceed S
and then immediately curve to the W, continuing on the gravel portion of Joy Ranch Rd. Travel 0.1 miles W
on Joy Ranch Rd after rounding the curve. Pull off the Rd and park in the clearing on the left. Walk S 236 ft to
the clue site located S of a Palo Verde tree.

If you are unable to solve this clue, or to find Clue M, open emergency envelope 23, which
will direct you to Clue M.
This is emergency solution 23, which will lead you to Clue M.
The square root sign is obvious, but what the heck is with the dots and lines? Teams who did their
HWOW research will recognize them as Mayan numerals. The numerals translate to 9, 12 and 4, but we
need to convert from the Mayans base 20 system into base 10. The equation (9x400) + (12x20) + 4 will do
the trick and give us 3844. But we still need to find the square root. A quick consultation with a calculator
will show us that the solution is 62. But there’s no 62 on the map!
Well, how did this clue start? With Mayan numerals, so let’s translate the number back. Continue your
enjoyment of the 62nd Annual Treasure Hunt and zip on over to

This is emergency solution 4, which will lead you to Clue N.
Mmmmm… We have a series of tasty looking desserts.
The Techie on your team, with the help of the HWOW “You better know the Android Operating Systems”,
should realize that these are the nicknames of the Android operating systems; Cupcake, Donut, Éclair,
Froyo (Frozen Yogurt ), Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and Ice Cream Sandwich in the order in which they
were released. The question mark is asking what the next nickname is in the series, which is Jelly Bean.
Since the question mark is yellow, and the yellow jelly bean in your brown bag is banana flavored…

Why are there two pulleys on a box…
The clever hunter would have seen the battery holder on the side and inserted their batteries and pressed
the button on the top. One of the pulleys starts to spin. If you have taken a good inventory of your brown
bag you’ll have noticed a silicone bracelet. If you put the bracelet on the two pulleys it causes the other
pulley to spin which causes the display to reveal Ab for Awareness Bands in the circle.
So spin your way to
without getting too dizzy.
Circle
is located in Map Grid L-3 From the intersection of E Cave Creek Rd and N
Schoolhouse Rd, proceed 0.8 miles east to N Vermeersch Rd. Go N on N Vermeersch Rd for 0.12 miles

on their presidential elections. The initials here represent the
Republican and Democratic presidential candidates in each
election from 1952 to 2012, with the winners helpfully in bold.

This is a nice picture of what appears to be the Sonoran Desert. I see a coyote, a couple of snakes and a
beautiful setting sun. But what to do now?
Well, since you are an astute Hunter you must have noticed the note on the picture that says “What is
missing?” So what is missing? Well we already noted several items in the picture. And in addition to those
items, there’s also what appears to be a mercury thermometer hanging from a cactus. So what you have in
the picture are: a Coyote, a Sun, a Diamondback, a Rattler and Mercury. These are 5 of the 6 professional
sports teams in the Valley of the Sun. The missing item must therefore be a Cardinal.
So congratulate yourself on your great “team”work and rush over to

Isn’t traveling fun? Moving from hotel to hotel to hotel…. Hey, what’s really going here?
A story of someone traveling in Atlantic City should have sent you to the brown bag, where the Wizards
have helpfully provided a travel directory for you. With it, you would find out that our traveler’s starting
point was on Ventnor Ave, then moved to Boardwalk, then to St. Charles Place, and is about to move to
Indiana Ave. All these roads are, of course, on the Monopoly board. If you paid attention to the
Monopoly board and the rules posted at checkout, you know that our traveler has moved 12 spaces twice
already (from Ventnor to Boardwalk to St Charles Place) which means he’s rolled doubles twice. A move
to Indiana Ave is another 12 spaces, which is three doubles in a row. Oooops. That means instead of
Indiana Ave. he goes to Jail and directly to Jail.
Don’t pass Go on your way to

Look, a classic touch-tone desk phone! But how does a hunter know what number to dial? By using their
superior problem solving skills, of course.
This phone looks ordinary, but checking for unordinary hints will help you solve this clue. Under the
handset is a little bit of mathematical notation. It’s the square root of -1, commonly known as i. So that
means this is an i-phone!
By researching the HWOW hint “Were you in line on 6/29/2007?”, teams should have learned that the first
iPhone was released that day. That’s great, but what to do now? The HWOW offers more help. “When in
doubt, dial the date.” should tip you off to the fact that 6/29/2007 has seven digits, just like a phone
number. So pick up the phone, dial 629-2007 and hear a prerecorded greeting which directs you to
clue site
Circle
is located in Map Grid K-6. From the intersection of Carefree Highway and 56th Street

This looks like five city buses traveling along a bus route. But who are the riders on the buses?
Well, the first rider is pretty clearly the Venus de Milo. The second bus has a female tennis player you
should recognize as Venus Williams. Aah, I think I see a pattern developing. The third bus shows Tim
Reid’s character “Venus Flytrap” from the late 70’s/early 80’s sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati. The fourth bus
shows an actual Venus flytrap plant. So what this represents is a “Transit of Venus”. But what is a transit
of Venus, you ask? Well if you had researched the HWOW hint “First observed in 1639” you would have
learned that in June 2012 the planet Venus passed between the Earth and the Sun, a “transit of Venus”.
This is a rare phenomenon that has only been observed a handful of times. And if you look at the street
signs next to the buses, you’ll see numbers representing the last four years that this phenomenon was
observed. The question marks by the fifth bus should lead you to ask, when will the next transit of Venus
occur? Hopefully your research was thorough and you know it will be in 2117.
So shuttle over to
to observe your next clue.

Fill in the blanks below each picture and you have Snap, Crackle, Pop, Honk, Tweet, Ding Dong and
Shuffle. What do these words have in common? Did you read the Brown Bag insert on Literary Terms? If
you did, you should notice that each of these words is an example of onomatopoeia, words whose sound
can imitate their meaning. Checking your brown bag article on Literary Terms you will discover that
onomatopoeia is #12 on our list.

What's this? Are you supposed to know how a furniture store made its mark? History-minded Hunters saw
ETHAN ALLEN on the HWOW and recognized that before it was a place to buy a dinette set, Ethan Allen
was the leader of the Green Mountain Boys. In May 1775, aided by Colonel Benedict Arnold, Ethan Allen
broke through the defenses and captured Fort Ticonderoga. Ticonderoga happens to be the name
embossed on a familiar #2 pencil stashed in the brown bag, so maybe you should have broken yours in
half? If you had, you would have found the following message inside the pencil.

Bring your ice block and set it in the pool. Now what? A rose floating on the surface of the pool, and a
bottle of Jack Daniels on the bottom. This should have triggered the memories of the famous movie
"Titanic" with Rose and Jack as the main characters. The HWOW date of April 15TH, 1912 should have
led you to discover that the ill fated voyage's anniversary is 100 years old. As it was operated by the
White Star line. Cruise on over to circle

Sometimes the simplest instructions can be the hardest to follow!
Solving this clue required you to purchase a lottery ticket (a “scratcher” ticket) from the TH Store at
checkout. But the baseball-themed ticket has a lot of letters– what are you supposed to scratch? Usually
you want to scratch an itch, but that’s not on the ticket, is it? Or IS it? Hidden in the word PITCH is the
word ITCH. Scratching those letters only reveals the equation “9 + 14” which of course is 23. So maybe
you missed this one. Don’t worry, even the best of them strike out sometimes!

A board with letters and a Word List. Somehow they must be related, but how?
How would one go about using the words on the Word List? And which words? The HWOW “Stretch
your 4-letter words” is the key to solving this clue. The Word List contains 6 different 4-letter words
(CANT, COMA, COST, NAME, SENT and SOME). And if you “stretch” those 4-letter words around the
metal pegs by using the 6 rubber bands from your Brown Bag, you will see that the 6 words end up
forming what looks like a two-dimensional rendering of a common three-dimensional object, a rectangular
hexahedron, often referred to as a BOX.

Where did the donkey go? Well , an observant hunter would have seen the excerpt from the book
“Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes”. Using that excerpt, you should have decoded the code using
the line, word, letter philosophy, meaning 7-3-1 as line 7, word 3, letter 1.
After diligent decoding the hunter found out that the donkey went “to get a Thirst Buster”. Where does
one get a Thirst Buster, well of course at Circle K.

Beginning in 1970, all committee members with less than three years of respite from committee service
and all committee members with six years of committee service are offered the opportunity to declare
their cars Professional. This declaration must be made upon application for tickets to the Hunt. In 1981,
the 1970 resolution was amended to limit those teams wishing to declare themselves Professional to those
having three or more qualifying members under the 1970 resolution.
The Treasure Hunt Committee employs the following interpretations of these resolutions.
Professional teams agree not to compete against amateur teams in the Hunt. First, second, and third
place prizes will be awarded to the three amateur teams with the lowest times per clue. If a
professional team has the lowest time per clue for the hunt, the team will be added to the `Pro Button
Winners` section of the Hall of Fame. Those team members whose status qualified the team for
professional competition will be awarded Pro Buttons to be affixed to their previously awarded red hats.
All Pro teams having times per clue better than the third place winners will be identified for their
commendable performances, while those Pro teams that placed closer to the other end of the pack will
also receive some `special` recognition.
Teams that are eligible to declare themselves Professional for the Hunt yet do not do so, for whatever
reason, will compete as amateur teams and be eligible for the first, second and third place prizes.
