Hi everybody!

Now you can get The Prisoner's Dilemma free by solving the puzzle below.

The first ten persons with the correct answers to the puzzle will get a free copy of the Prisoner's Dilemma.

I have attached two files; one is the puzzle with clues and the other is the answer sheet. The clues are to locations in and around the great Hartford area. Find the locations and be one of the first ten persons with the correct answers and I will send you a free copy of the book.

Simply forward your answer sheet to email address below.

PRISONER’S DILEMMA PUZZLE



Rules: To solve the puzzle, fill in the answers on the puzzle answer sheet. Email the answers to me at mel_hathorn.yahoo.com. Enter the term, “Prisoners Entry” in the subject line. The first ten correct responses will receive a free copy of The Prisoner’s Dilemma. The answers are mostly locations and scenes in the Greater Hartford area located at or near those found in The Prisoner’s Dilemma.

Clue 1.

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack Drove down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

Ascend Jack and Jill’s hill. Near the top you will find a large number. Multiply that number by two. Divide your answer by 4. Multiply that answer by 2. Continue down the hill. At the bottom of the hill is a state road with the number that you calculated above. Be sure not to “Nod” off!

Clue 2.

Cross the state road and continue West for 2.75 miles. At the “Not ‘Burning Bush’ Road,” turn left and go South for 1.9 miles. You will come to a town road named after a place where the rich and famous hang out. Turn Left for .2 miles and turn right into a large storage facility named after Shakespeare’s River.

Enter the storage facility. Find volume 25 of a set of books named after a famous Island Nation. Turn to page 261 and read the last paragraph. Find Hamlet’s perception of the world.

Clue 3.

The quality of mercy is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest;
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes: …
Though justice be thy plea, consider this,
That, in the course of justice, none of us
Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy;
And that same prayer doth teach us all to render The deeds of mercy.
I have spoke thus much To mitigate the justice of thy plea;

Go to downtown Hartford and find Hamlet’s perception near the Palais de Justice. In front of Hamlet’s perception you will find this:

THE wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding— riding—riding—

Find the inscription on the Highwayman.

Clue 4.

Proceed to West Hartford and find where the spirit of a famous French explorer ends. Stop in the nearby bar and bend an elbow or two at the bar. Next to that restaurant is the resting place of the spirit of the French Explorer. Note the name.

Clue 5.

A pen warmed in hell,
This man writes quite well.
Born during a heavenly sight,
His departure equally bright.

The home of a famous Connecticut Author is your next stop. (No, not me!) Without any tomfoolery, enter the large building behind his home. Locate the machine that almost destroyed this author. What is the inscription halfway up the stairs?
