# Nanohunts

### by Darren Rigby

When players successively completed any one of the nanohunts, they received the answer THE GIFT OF THE MAGI. The solutions to the word and math/logic based nanohunts are given below:

## Word based nanohunts

 Variation 1.1 ```B ARO N OBL E P IAN O RGA N C RAF T RAD E S PAR E XTR A C HUM P ATS Y C IRC A BOU T B REA D OUG H ``` Variation 1.2 ```S CRU B RUS H S TIL L IFE S F ION A PPL E B ROW N OSE R S TEA K NIF E M OUS E ARE D N IGH T ABL E ```
 Variation 2.1 ```FRONT: BACK: EN RI CH AT HE NS TI PP ER IS TH EC CE LE RY AP IT AL Answer: GREECE ``` Variation 2.2 ```FRONT: BACK: CU BA NO NE LS ON BI NG OS MA ND EL ST OR ES AL ED US Answer: SOUTH AFRICA ``` Variation 2.3 ```FRONT: BACK: DE SI RE YO UG OT PO LI CE AL AS KA SE CA NT FR OM US Answer: RUSSIA ```

## Math/logic based nanohunts

 Variation 1.1 ```??? + ??? = 24 ??? - ??? = 24 ??? x ??? = 24 ??? / ??? = 24 ``` Variation 1.2 ```??? + ??? = 24 ??? - ??? = 24 ??? x ??? = 24 ??? / ??? = 24 ```

### Variation 3

The instructions were fulfilled by removing coins from piles BEE, CCC, DDG and ACC respectively, then transferring 3 coins from stack B to C. The resulting coin is therefore the middle (fifth down) coin from the B stack.
