Riddle

THE MOUSY
MINDBOGGLER

If you subscribe to the AllEars® Weekly Newsletter, you’ll know that we run a little game called the Mousy Mindboggler. Sometimes it’s a word game, sometimes it’s a riddle, sometimes it’s some other brain-teasing challenge — but it’s always fun!

Once each month, in the AllEars® Bits and Bites issue, our friend James Dezern (known as “dzneynut” around several Disney discussion forums) supplies us with a puzzle of his own design. The puzzles have some sort of Disney theme, of course, but will not be restricted to the Disney theme parks. The type of puzzle is up to James. Also up to him? The bestowing of a prize — a collectible Disney pin from his extensive collection.

Around the middle of each month, James also Shares the Magic in another way — by posting a puzzle here in this AllEars.Net Guest Blog. Again, the subject of the puzzle will vary, and James will award the winner of the challenge a collectible Disney pin!

Here’s the link to this month’s puzzle:

So… Think you know Disney inside and out? Put on your thinking cap!

This month we are going to take a temporary break from the classic animated characters and try a special Disney Parks for the Holidays edition. We will return with a puzzle on Donald Duck next month.

There is a word bank for this particular puzzle, and ALL of the words in the word bank are used in the puzzle.

The object is of course to have fun, BUT if you want a chance to win a Disney collectible pin, arrange the letters that are circled in the puzzle to come up with the answer to the bonus question, which relates to the puzzle theme.

Send your resulting answer IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF AN EMAIL addressed to dzneynut.puzzle@gmail.com

Send the bonus term or phrase no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on January 10, 2014. All correct answers will be entered into a random drawing, and the winner will be awarded a Disney pin. The answers and drawing winner will be posted in this Guest Blog, along with a new puzzle, in mid-January.

GOOD LUCK!

NOVEMBER SOLUTION:

Here is the answer key to last month’s Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler:

/ae/mb111613-key.pdf

As 53 of you knew, the watch that Mickey wore in the short film, “Mickey’s Big Break” was, ironically, a Michael Eisner watch. At the time Mr. Eisner was the CEO of the Walt Disney Company.

The winner of this month’s Disney collectible pin is Ron H. of Naugatuck, Connecticut. Ron’s entry was picked at random from all of the correct responses.

Thanks for playing, everyone!

We hope you enjoy this Mousy Mindboggler, and we welcome any comments or suggestions. And if you have an idea for a puzzle theme that you’d like to see, drop James a line at dzneynut.puzzle@gmail.com.

Thanks and Happy Holidays!
