GOLD - Rosaline

Kepy: Gold Solution: on the bottom put each letter of alphabet into each colored box (you'll end up at x). The clue was flowers 1st so starting with the Blue flower top right you get a W. The Red flower cipers to an H. The Yellow flower on the second row of windows=O keep going youget the phrase WHO WAS ROMEO FIRST LOVE

Update:
  A good link post today from Joe Napalm, click here to read it.

Thanks to bjnotbk for filling in for me while I was out.  No, I wasn't in Detroit.  Yes, I wish I was there. 

I apologize to everyone for not posting the answers after the rounds in the blog post.  Recently, I have had a few things that I needed to take care of outside of the blogosphere and so I have been slightly disconnected.  You all have done a great job of helping each other out with your comments and I am greatly appreciative of that.

If your feeling hungry, our recipe blog has been "kicken" lately.

 The Gold Challenge round starts at 3 PM.  Good luck to everyone today!

gm to all, anybody having any problems yet or is it too soon to tell
# October 6, 2006 10:20 AM

nyctmb said:

to find out what time the challenges open you can check 3 different places all on the same page: PLAY THE GAME

1.You can see the counter counting down on the right.

2.You can put your mouse on top of the locked challenges and the same counter will appear.

Lastly, in the box below the counter, it says this:

ROUND 7
10/6, 3PM EDT, Challenges 11,12


ROUND 8
10/9, 12PM EDT, Challenges 1,2,3,4,5,6
10/10, 3PM EDT, Challenges 7,8,9,10
10/11, 3PM EDT, Challenges 11,12


*Gold Challenge becomes available when all 12 challenges have been solved.

Hope this clears up any confusion.

DeeLeet2005 said:

Good Morning everyone!
Well, I've got 3 times all in EDT, one banner scrolling that says Final challenges start tomorrow, the second, that says what we all thought, at 3pm and another window showing that it opens at Noon today. I guess they never want us to leave, which would probably be just fine if we didn't get signed out on a regular basis in the middle of a challenge. (Confusion, HA! Who would be confused? Aol at it's best.)
So, no matter who happens to stumble into AOL's secret start time, I wish you all the best of luck!!

oh, i mean when you have a picture you want to put on. Like when people post a link to the completed photo hunt challenges or the circle a word challenge.

it seems like they're copying and pasting the picture into a program, then posting a link to yahoo pictures.
But i don't know if that's what's happening.

Good luck to one and all today.

oops, maybe it's not "12"
# October 6, 2006 11:53 AM

MistyB78 said:

what worked for me monarch i would just put the  9 up top the 3 and 6 on left and right and 0 at bottom.. hit clear then try to do the
916312 code and hit the -> enter key.. if i got it wrong i would switch out 2 numbers hit clear enter the code again until it gave me correct.. keep at it!
# October 6, 2006 11:55 AM

nyctmb said:

b/c if you've clicked on the gas cap the screen will zoom in on it then the gas cap opens,  you go down the tube of the gas line and the screen changes to an Avalance sitting in the parking lot of a gas station which is where the info is about the E85 Ethanol having corn in it. At the bottom of the info, it says "click here...".

If you didn't see all of that after just clicking on the gas cap, your page might be stuck.

Okay, I need some serious help.  I have tried to contact aol's goldrush assist several times, but no luck.  In round 7 #4, I cannot get it to load.,  On #7, the 2nd part won't load past the words.  I have tried other browsers... cleared my cache...etc.

HELP!!
# October 6, 2006 12:39 PM

nyctmb said:

ok, never mind. i didn't put in an email address anywhere. but i'm using different screen names on my IM from the game.

mistyb, i did add you to my IM list. my name starts with "vc..." if you want to add me.
this is kind of frustrating. i guess i should have used the same name on everything.

the aol chat thing - that's not working here  either. i guess it's my computer/server at work not allowing me in or something. i've copied/clicked/pasted gone to google, aol, signed in, signed out, and everything else i can think of. no matter what i do, it always says "we found no results for your search". the error message is on the aol people connection page. so i'm in the right place. it just doesn't recognize the search for some reason.

gold buddies onto your aol or aim buddy list
:)
should use whatever name u use for aol or aim :) heh
# October 6, 2006 12:49 PM

to add people to your gold buddy list
you choose them from your buddy rank list
when u click on my goldrush  on the top right home page you know :P
all u gotta do is
add someone to your regular aim or aol buddy list.. that automatically puts them in your buddy rank list, then from there
click on any name to put them as one of your
5 gold buddies :)
it is that simple :)

if you look at the parking lot and see how the A in park is in the first square and the x in exit is in the last...  fill in the rest... A B C etc.. til you get to the x...  then start at the top left of the hotel and go right in rows...  with the first flower pot, look at the 'parking spot" in that column with the corresponding color/letter...  which was a "W".. then go through the rest of the pots in order...  and then start with the curtains...  spells out 'who was romeo's first love"....

# October 6, 2006 2:44 PM

boardstrapd said:

The alphabet grid starts at the 'A' in PARK, then 'B' is the next red square to the right, then 'C' the next red square, etc.  Continue that and you'll get to 'X' in the EXIT.  That will setup your letters. So column 1 has red=A, yellow=I, blue=Q, and Column 2 has red=B, yellow=J, blue=R, etc...

Now for each of the 8 columns, the color of the shade or flower corresponds to one of the 3 letters for that column.  So for column 1, the yellow curtain = I, and the red flower = A. Do the same for the rest, and if you read it starting with the flowers first, it says "who was romeos first love"

I dont get "W" for first flower pot, I get "G"

if you look at the parking lot and see how the A in park is in the first square and the x in exit is in the last...  fill in the rest... A B C etc.. til you get to the x...  then start at the top left of the hotel and go right in rows...  with the first flower pot, look at the 'parking spot" in that column with the corresponding color/letter...  which was a "W".. then go through the rest of the pots in order...  and then start with the curtains...  spells out 'who was romeo's first love"....

thanks briansgirl - i get it now - damn that was tough - i had all the letters but i couldn't figure out how to rearrange them or in what order they were selected from the hotel windows.
# October 6, 2006 2:46 PM

MistyB78 said:

 ok the first letter is a

 do the red letters

8 red
 8 yellow
 8 blue
red - a b c d e f g h
yellow - i j k l m n o p
blue - q r s t u v w x
look at the top grid
there are 8 of those too
the first row has
in flowers
 a blue in the 7th slot - W
and a red in the 8th slot - H
second row yellow in 7th spot - O
with me so far?

that spells WHO

continue on the flowers then curtains u get the question who is romeros first love
answer - ROSLINE

actually it does ask "who was romeos first love" also...
Hmmm two ciphers in one puzzle, berry interesting
# October 6, 2006 2:46 PM

monarchnp said:

look at the "a" in park and the "x" in exit, those are the letters, the "flowers first" decipher all the flowers, then do the curtains for example top row first blue flower would equal a "w" because that is what letter falls under the cipher

The only problem with the Gold Challenge was that it could just as easily have been this way (fill in columns going down):

A D G J M P S V
B E H K N Q T W
C F I L O R U X

instead of this way (fill in rows going across):

A B C D E F G H
I J K L M N O P
Q R S T U V W X

Guess which one I tried first? :-(

And rats - I  knew ALL the designers immediately.  But I'd still be stuck typing in Teri Hatcher if I hadn't read Ryan Seacrest on this forum!

best explanation i can give for gold:

in the boxes at the bottom start with the A and fill in across the letters of the alphabet then the next row and then the third ending with X.  now go across the rows of the hotel and fill in the cooresponding letters starting first with the flowerpot colors then go again and do the same with the curtain colors.  this will spell out "who was romeos first love"

I can try to explain the gold challenge. at the bottom there are 8 red squares, 8 yellow squares, and 8 blue squares. The first red square corresponds to the letter "A", the second to "B", and so on until the letter "H". Then it switches to yellow for the letters "I" thru "P", then blue for the letters "Q" thru "X". Now, going across the top row of the hotel, the first flower we come across is the blue one in the seventh column. This corresponde to the letter "W". Next is a red flower in the eighth column, corresponding to the letter "H". Continue in this fashion until you run out of flowers,and then start with the curtains. It spells out the clue which is "Who was Romeo's first love"

i also did a search for "Samoa Grant Inn" which, to my knowledge does not exist.  does anyone think this was another clue for figuring out the final question or does it have any relation to Romeo and Juliet and/or Rosaline?

I wonder if this is a coincidence or a mistake, but take the bottom color (flower or curtain) for each column and circle it in:

A B C D E F G H
I J K L M N O P
Q R S T U V W X

you get: A R S L E N O H, if the last H was an I it would have been a scramble for Rosaline! Either someone at aol, was almost extremely brilliant, or blind luck!

seriously, I think the mods have their own list which is way more complete than mine as they have over 500 names that they track; and I don't want to be posting multiple revisions of the same list over and over ..it might annoy them!  So I'll stop there unless they say it's OK.

wow, I wish AOL/Gold Rush would publish a list of the top times for each round.  Even the top 100 would be interesting.  I get the impression this was a fairly slow round - maybe the combination of the designer names which definitely skewed toward girls (rah!) and the gold challenge which took some figuring out.  i'm still steamed that if you filled it in ABC going down instead of ABCDEFGH going across, you lost precious time!

AOL Gold Rush Round 7 Game 13 Final Answer Spoiler (—)

There is a Puzzle to solve… Can you?

AOL Clue:  Flowers First

Clue: Who was Romero’s First Love…

AOL Gold Rush Round 7 Game 13 Final Answer Spoiler (—)
If you look at the parking lot in the picture and see how the A in park is in the first square and the x in exit is in the last.  Fill in the remaining letters… A B C etc.. til you get to the X.

then start at the top left of the hotel and go right in rows. The AOL Clue was Flowers First so with the first flower pot, look at the ‘parking spot” in that column with the corresponding color/letter…  which was a “W”.. then go through the rest of the pots in order…  and then start with the curtains…  spells out ‘who was romeo’s first love”….

Is Shakespeare really considered pop culture? I thought this game would stick to things at least from the 20th & 21st century, but I guess I was wrong.  
# October 7, 2006 1:15 AM

Serendipity94123 said:

Well, about that SAMOA GRANT INN - it anagrams to NO ISNT ANAGRAM.  Not sure whether that was intentional however!

It shouldn't really matter what the final question was because once you got the encrypted message, the answer was about a nanosecond away on Google - just enter "romeo's first love" and you get a page full of Rosalines.

Still, it's not thematic to go all classical on us when it has nothing to do with Miami...or pop culture.

There were some comments made concerning the answer "Rosaline" NOT being "Pop Culture." The Pop Culture tie-in here is the 1996 movie "William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet" starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. If you click on my name above, or visit the link I have provided below, you will find a synopsis of the film, which discusses Rosaline's significance. Here is a quote taken from that synopsis: "In Verona Beach there lives two families. The Montagues and the Capulets. Among these two families are two teenagers, Juliet Capulet and Romeo Montague. One night, Flugencio Capulet decides to have a party. Romeo, being in love with Capulet's niece Rosaline, goes along dressed as the boy King Arthur. That's where he sees Juliet Capulet as an angel ... "

And grrr overall - I got stuck on "VUITTON", but otherwise solved the gold challenge on my own. Grrrr. Keep getting caught on one anagram or another!

FIRST:

Congrats to Nemisis, Voice and also MRChampion.
Anyone else make it too?

SECOND:

Thanks to all who contribute to this blog and administer it.  It is certainly a lot more fun playing this with a cyber family I lovingly call my steeple-people.

THIRD:

Even tho I am on dial-up I will continue to help research and brainstorm before and during the challenges to get my steeple-people up on the top of the charts.

FOURTH:

If I ever win - my gold buddies and I have an agreement on splitting any winnings.  Once I have my part of those winnings - I will tithe part of my winnings to the Steeple.  Wouldn't have one it without the Steeple.

FIFTH:

The Albuqerque round.  Here are some fun facts I found about Albuqerque.  Hopefully some of these things will stick in our brains and be helpful in the next 13 challenges.

I don't tink there's any "sounds like" about it. So that makes me wonder if he's lurking around, just to see what people say.

Neville, if you're out there, why not share your wealth of knowledge with the rest of the group here?
