Welcome to the first Sporcle Puzzle Hunt. Feel free to click on the blog link at the top of the quiz to learn more about what's going on here. This comment is to make sure that people really take care to NOT post spoilers or answers to these puzzle quizzes. That will ruin things for other people trying to solve them, and those comments will be removed.

Thank you SO much for participating in this Sporcle Puzzle Hunt experiment!!!
I really hope that you enjoyed this, and let me know if you've earned the badge. Also, I'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org to see what you thought, or feel free to comment here. Also, fear not, there will be a hint-giving quiz released soon to help people who are stuck on some of the puzzles.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 04:35 GMT
THIS WAS BRILLIANT!!!
Mar 12th, 2013 at 04:36 GMT
Maybe it makes it too easy, but i find it frustrating when some of the patterns for meta answers are ridiculously more unclear than others. Just a personal gripe, i guess. The hint-giving quiz will help and then i will hate myself for overthinking things or abandoning logic
Mar 12th, 2013 at 05:13 GMT
Still willing to collaborate on this thing with anyone who needs help. I'm stuck on MOVIES and GEOGRAPHY - but I don't want to lose out on this badge! =) As long as it's allowed, feel free to email me @ email@example.com (What happened to the hints, sproutcm?)
Mar 12th, 2013 at 05:15 GMT
P.S. FWIW, this was defintitely the most fun I've had in the history of my Sporcle adventures. Sheer brilliance. Kudos, sproutcm! (Can not wait until the next batch!)
Mar 12th, 2013 at 05:16 GMT
I solved the final answer to this one, but I still haven't figured out what I was supposed to find from Geography. Does that mean I've "earned the badge"?
Mar 12th, 2013 at 05:21 GMT
@VEC, you can look at your profile to see what badges you have. You have to get all of the answers on this quiz (not just the final one) to get the badge, I believe.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 05:26 GMT
Yes, I see the info in the game notes above (now).
Mar 12th, 2013 at 05:53 GMT
The whole thing was outstanding sprout, but unfortunately I will have to go to sleep empty handed. 15 out of 16 on this one (including the ultimate final answer) is just not good enough for the badge...
Mar 12th, 2013 at 06:14 GMT
Wow, 13 had me stumped because I'd never heard the word pronounced in English. Eventually I got it through frantic guessing. Anyway, thanks for the ride, sproutcm.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 06:57 GMT
Thank you, Sprout! I used to do the MIT Mystery Hunt in college, but I haven't thought about it in years. I got so excited when I saw that you were doing a hunt! Great job, this was awesome!
Mar 12th, 2013 at 07:17 GMT
Nafets, same problem here. There is another word that I think also fits, but didn't work here. Eventually got it because of a random post from 7 years ago on the same question.

Well. I don't think I'm getting that badge (...yet?). That was really fun and challenging, though, and kudos on making such clever quizzes and meta-puzzles that were probably as hard to make as they were to solve. As fun too, I guess :)
Mar 12th, 2013 at 08:11 GMT
Arggh! Tried this with 14/15 of the baby solutions (stuck on lang). Made enough progress to backsolve it, but apparently not since the other meta won't take it so I'm stuck at 15/16 here.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 08:19 GMT
if you're at 15/16 you should be able to come up with the language puzzle.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 10:43 GMT
I agree with MikeN in thinking there is another word that fits both the clue and the pattern for #13. While I eventually got the one the game accepted, I was pretty frustrated when the one I originally tried didn't work.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 11:32 GMT
@Thalia et al Yeah, there apparently was a reasonable pair of answers that both worked that the test solvers and I didn't catch, so I have tweaked it so that only one properly fits now. Thanks everyone!
Mar 12th, 2013 at 11:49 GMT
Ahhh...now I can sleep. Thanks Sprout, this was fantastic.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 11:52 GMT
@sprout: I might be alone in this, but I hope you wait a little while before allowing/giving hints. I haven't been around much lately and just found out about this on Sunday. I've only got 12/15 metas so far and it would be nice if the stragglers like me had at least a few days to work through the end
Mar 12th, 2013 at 12:01 GMT
@Djibouti Fear not. While the quiz to automatically give hints is already made, I believe the Sporcle higher powers don't want that released for 1-2 weeks after the whole hunt is out there to give people time to work on it without those hint available. And yes, I'm also not giving hints via email yet, because that too would be too soon and unfair for the people slowly working on things and enjoying it.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 12:05 GMT
So good that for once I have logged in to my little used Sporcle account so that I can comment and show my appreciation! Absolute amazing fun and very clever!! Work has suffered a bit over the last few days (only found out about it on Sat) but a solution has now been reached and normal life can resume :) THANKYOU SO MUCH!!!! (PS another one please?)
Mar 12th, 2013 at 12:28 GMT
I just completed the puzzle hunt and earned the badge! Thanks for this amazing quest @sproutcm
Mar 12th, 2013 at 12:29 GMT
Kudos, Sprout, on a delightful, if frequently maddening, challenge! A P.S. here since I can't seem to comment on the blog post: although the meta quiz may serve as an answer checker/confirmer, and though the confirmer's still listed among all the quizzes, using the meta quiz to check individual answers may be a bit excessive to some looking to check a single answer, so, as superfluous as it may seem, might you consider leaving the link to the answer confirmer in the blog post as well?
Mar 12th, 2013 at 12:34 GMT
@MikeN: Yes I should have and have got it sorted now. I overlooked a bit of structure in the other meta and made a plausible but false assumption. Now to see if I can backsolve lang.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 13:22 GMT
Made sure to log in and redo all the puzzles just to get this badge. Thanks sprout!
Mar 12th, 2013 at 14:16 GMT
Thanks for fixing the very minor hiccup with #13. Even with my momentary frustration trying to get that last word, this was an incredibly awesome puzzle hunt. I can't even imagine how much thought, creativity, and time went into making it, but despite that I selfishly hope you will be developing more puzzle hunts in the future.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 14:26 GMT
@Sprout - This was challenging, fun and sometimes downright infuriating. Thanks for the good times. Badge earned. Made some new friends in the process. I'm ready for the next one.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 15:46 GMT
My brain is spent like I ran a marathon with my prefrontal cortex. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go dunk my head in an icebath.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 15:56 GMT
I finally figured out how to determine the order of the answers here! I'm not too proud to admit I brute forced it the first time around, took me over 20 attempts.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 17:17 GMT
Finally reached the end....as I said before, it's been a great run Sproutcm.
Mar 12th, 2013 at 18:24 GMT
Wow...I've never felt quite the sense of accomplishment from a Sporcle puzzle before. What a well-thought out, cleverly constructed, often maddening, but supremely fun set of puzzles. I'm already looking forward to Puzzle Hunt 2! Bravo, Sproutcm!
Mar 12th, 2013 at 18:47 GMT
@pve1024, couldn't have said it better. Thanks, Sproutcm! Really really fun! :)
Mar 12th, 2013 at 19:07 GMT
wow completely stuck on 13 I know which meta goes there but have no idea how to fix it
Mar 12th, 2013 at 19:38 GMT
Ok I see where I have to get with 13, don't know how to get there though....
Mar 12th, 2013 at 20:11 GMT
I finally solved it all!
Mar 12th, 2013 at 21:18 GMT
well this was sadistically fun. Let's do another one!
Mar 12th, 2013 at 21:36 GMT
A massive thanks to sproutcm for this monumental piece of quizzical deviousness. A fortnight of my life consumed with frustrating, agonising torture and joyous moments of elation. Roll on the next one!
Mar 12th, 2013 at 22:50 GMT
Woohoo! I win!
