Practice Meta #3: Incomplete Information Edition

Every single practice meta I’ve created, for three years now, has been a “pure” meta — a list of words and nothing more. I really wanted to come up with a decent “shell” meta, which requires the solver to use other information as well as the list of words.

This time, I’ve decided not to give you all of the answer words. Let’s pretend you’re a little more than halfway through the puzzles, and you’ve decided to see if you can nonetheless crack the metapuzzle. Can you do it? Send your answer to ericberlin@gmail.com.

Magic 8-Ball

Oh, man! See, I got the idea of asking the Magic 8-Ball if we’re going to find the coin this year. The answers I got back were very strange. You can see them on this page. Maybe these puzzles will help me figure out what the 8-Ball is trying to say…

1.
2. TEETH
3. CLOUDS
4.
5. BLOOD
6.
7. KEYS
8. FASHION
9.
10. FLOWERS

Solved by: Jeffrey Harris, Todd McClary, Mark Halpin, Michael Sylvia.
