I'm glad I can contribute in some way since I'm horrid at guessing the clues. LOL

See the page numbers on the top and bottom of each page? Click on "go" and a box will pop up, put in a page number then click go.

oops! sry--see this has been answered--I forgot to click refresh before I posted!

Thank you very much mcfcrazy and Rainbow.

So far, I've read every single page, but didn't know how to
use the "Go" to start reading where I left off.

Another day older, but a little bit smarter is always a good day.

I also have this thread saved in my favorites. Whenever I read to the end, I add it again and it overwrites the old save AT THE NEW PAGE. So, whenever I come to the thread I'm right on the page I left off on. Hope that helps!!

All clues but one from my last post have been deciphered here and there...but sadly "not the area of land dwelling porpoises" was left unsolved.
Kudos to 'nxguaoux' for nailing Bob and Tom.

Partie Un)
3X + 5Y + 2Z = 65
3XY + (3X)/Y = 170
Unlucky for you that there are three variables but only 2 equations, so the mysterious Z is unsolvable...or is it?

Partie Duex)
The most logical of my 206 to 208, though my earp has many more for now.
(NXGUAOUX REFERS TO MCHICSPIC WHOSE ANSWER IS MENTIONED IN PART TWO)
(POSSIBLY SOLVED?? BY THE LEAK MENTIONED IN POST BELOW BUT NOT CONFIRMED)

Hello all!
Sorry we haven't responded sooner, we were chasing down information and looking into the reports regarding the leaked information.

It seems someone accidentally let some information out of the bag early. Luckily it's just a piece of the puzzle, not the whole picture.

Keep your eyes peeled for more information. You never know what will be revealed.
(REFERRING TO THE LEAK OF “THE 13TH SKULL”) ...

Partie Un resolves to 13 (Z is unlucky for you)
Partie Deux resolves to skull.

ETA mchicspic and momo2006 got Z = 13 and several people got skull but no-one seems to have put both of them together before me.

If Z is indeed 13 then I get 3 answers for Y and 3 answers for X (both positive and negative) which gives us 3 possible (X,Y) pairs. one of them happens to be approximately (-11,10) (thats with rounding to integer answers) could that hint to a possible release date? could tomorrow be the day? The other pairs are (49,-2) and (39,0) as I said i did round, the actual answers were very long decimals. Just a thought

I don't think you need bother with the rest once you have 13.

Ah I see the riddle asked to solve for Z but still an interesting coincidence.

Arghh I can't believe it! I've been to sleep, gone to school, had lunch, cleaned the house, done my homework and after reading more than 10 pages of posts I find out that picman hasn't showed up. Come on!! We're going nuts here...

Once we came up with "Unlucky"=13 and "skull" had already been solved, I thought it was kind of obvious.

I think the "11 legs, runs backwards, never stops", is a water wheel. Does not necessarily have to be attached to a mill but most times they were. Has anyone researched a mill on the Atchafalaya river?

There have been several posts about the Atchafallaya but here's my search:

Atchafalaya River (uh-CHA-fuh-lei-uh), navigable river, c.170 mi/270 km long, S central La.; 30°17'N 91°40'W; rises in N at confluence of Red and Miss. rivers; meanders S, in a former channel of the Mississippi, to Atchafalaya Bay in the Gulf of Mexico. A distributary of the Red and Mississippi rivers, the Atchafalaya flows to the gulf through an extensive system of guide levees and floodways. By law a set proportion of the water from the Mississippi R. is diverted into the Atchafalaya R. at the Old River Control Structure. The Atchafalaya Basin is filled with lakes, bayous, marshes, and cypress swamps. Because of the threat of flooding, the Basin is generally roadless and sparsely inhabited. The few roads follow tops of levees. Interstate Highway 10, which crosses the basin E-W, is a continuous bridge for most of the distance bet. Baton Rouge and Lafayette. Locally referred to as Tchafalaya.

PS I believe someone also posted that it runs backwards because it runs away from the Mississippi--can't remember who, sorry.

Ok. No-one's posted before with them both together. There shouldn't be any debate about the leaked game title then.

Kimmy, a paddle boat or casino boat makes stops, so it is possible but then the "never stops running" would not apply. A waterwheel is usually placed in a stream or river to generate electricicity or to run a mill to grind flour. The power of the water ensures the wheel never stops. Unless it breaks, lol.

Currently it's only 8:50 AM in Seattle. Picman needs time to get into the office, drink some coffee, read the hundreds of the posts, check up on sales figures and status updates, then we'll get some clues. Today for sure.
