Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler – February 2014

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!

Continuing with the animated character’s series, this month we take a closer look at Mickey’s lovable friend, Goofy!

There is a word bank for this particular puzzle, but beware, not all of the words in the word bank are used in the puzzle.

The object is to have fun, of course, 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 March 5, 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-March.

Can you believe it’s been one year that we’ve been doing this already? Thanks everyone for playing!

And GOOD LUCK!

JANUARY SOLUTION:

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

/ae/mb011614-key.pdf

As many of you knew (93 of you, in fact!), “Working for Peanuts” was the title of the Donald Duck 3-D cartoon that came out in 1953, and could be seen at the Magic Kingdom along with “Magic Journeys” from about 1988-93.

The winner of this month’s random drawing from all the correct responses was Jeff B. of Florida, NY, winner of a collectible Figment pin.

As always, James would love to hear any feedback, or any ideas for themes you’d like to a see covered. Drop James a line at dzneynut.puzzle@gmail.com.
