    Originally this was more about hunting down missing letters, it has a story to it. However things got complicated near the end (msn whiteboard doesn't work) so we decided to turn the pineapple upside down and decided to shorten it and make it ID all the way. This puzzle is experimental to see how quick and paranoid you are because Icewolf and I will pull your string anytime we want.

    what
    is it about? This is a riddle breaker. IF you can break the riddle, you will find the hidden item. There are no rules, it's free for all. And since this is in the brainteaser section, means there's no reward.

    And last, we are not forcing you to play. We leave it here so that when you are bored (Ice, you can play too if you need!) this can help pass the time. Or just leave it here and let the win blow it.

    Jedi Icewolf, are you there? Over. Hmmm... now where is he? Don't tell me he want the item all for himself!

    The idea behind this game is to use the image, (above) to find other images, when you find the image we want you have won. This may sound vague but it's a puzzle work it out!

    Iv been prompted to release my findings...what the hell, i had totally forgotten about it.

    Mkay, first of all, remember who started the thread. Its tablet. Remembering what tablet did at the beginning of ID with some images, I changed the X image to a ZIP file. Just changed the extension from .jpg to .zip. Then you get 2 files in that ZIP, riddle.txt and chest.gif, the GIF is password protected, Riddle.txt holds:

    Im pretty sure that once all 4 of those are answered, that they are the password to chest.gif.

    I think the 2nd line is X because it was on the image, that is no longer there.

    I believe that Line 1 could be that you need to find an anagram of realistic storage since Tablet is big on anagrams too.

    Im unsure about the other 2 lines tho.

    What version of winzip are you using?

    Trying to figure out why I can't simply change the extension...

    It doesnt matter what version of WinZIP you have, Right click and save as the image. Then when excess4le.jpg appears on your Desktop, just change .jpg to .zip.

    You can change any extension on any file to any other extension, it just wont work. What tablet has done is he has the coding of a ZIP placed inside the coding of a JPG file, so you can view both.

    But, im using WinRAR, not WinZIP.
