HI all, I'm brand new to Curious and Conundrums. Just got Countdown to Oblivion, now are you saying that this is the last issue? Should I go back and order the previous issues for Volume 4? I read most of the paper when I got it today. I haven't started solving the puzzles yet as I'm still at the point I'm trying to figure out what to do. Thanks
Hi, yeah it's the last issue of CnC in its current form - this particular volume is a world apart from last year's volume three, but as for what to do next, try these questions for size:
Did you enjoy Countdown to Oblivion? Did you like the bits and pieces in the box, the format of the box itself, the contents of the paper? Try the puzzles, are you happy with the difficulty level of them? Do you like having step-by-step answers to these sorts of thing online?
Once you've answered these then: - If you answered YES to all of these, then order a previous issue and ask yourself the same questions - if YES again, then repeat. - If you were a MAYBE or NO, then I'd recommend ordering the volume three catchup omnibus instead - these do not come in box, and there is no pewter artifact, but there is a story threading through from issue to issue, there are more puzzles, and there are deeper levels to many of the puzzles plus a meta puzzle linking the whole of volume three together.
thebardess: I too raise my glass. I am honored to have been a part of something so great. And I am glad to have ordered the catch ups of Vol 1 and 2 last year. I hope one day my grand grand kids find the old suitcase full of weird stuff in the attic. Boy, what a real mystery it'll be for them. (And yes, Vol 4 will not be included.)
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
