Hi got this in the mail, and thought the qwyzzle, puzzledonkey, and puzzletome people might be interested, to be in from the start.

Hello All

You may be interested to know that a new puzzle site called The Puzzle Files.

The first contest, which is due to launch mid-March, is...



This contest adds a twist to the usual "straight-line" type contests, as it is truly a labyrinth
where the wrong answer could send you off in completely the wrong direction!

Why not come and check it out, and prepare to be a-mazed.

think of the picture as an overlay of part of the computer keyboard and follow the numbers.

The picture of the keys with numbers represent letter keys on the keyboard. You find where on the keyboard it represents and put the the letters together by following the numbers. 1 is first letter of the word,etc.

lol - I never know why I start these things. Tried so hard to resist checking this thread out but here I've gone and registered.

And am stuck on one already

I like the (you are the 11th person to try *****) thing under the answer - makes you feel not so bad that you aren't the only one
