The Silk Road Hunt VI: The Roman Empire

June 1 - June 30, 2015

Hunt Prize Preview #3

Hunt Staring Point:  Imperial Palace in Mieville, Dickens.

SRH6 Hunt Object

Ok, class - today's Latin lesson is on the declension of regular Latin verbs (we can't talk about the behavior of irregular verbs in a PG blog).  If you don't know or don't care what a declension is, don't worry.  Just repeat after me.  Amo, amas, amat.  Amamus, amatis, amant.  "I love, you love, he (or she) loves.  We love, you all love, they love."  And what does everyone love?  Why we love all the merchants who have given us such terrific hunt prizes in this year's Silk Road Hunt, of course!

Itaque qui munera laudemus.  "So let us praise those who give gifts ...." and then take a look at all this good stuff.

In closing, let us remember the the immortal words of Julius Caesar, Veni, vidi, vici.  "I came, I saw, I got the giftie."  (or something like that)

The Silk Road Hunt VI: The Roman Empire

June 1 - June 30, 2015

Hunt Prize Preview #2

Heus!!  That means "listen up, everyone" in Latin - the official language of the Roman empire.  In today's prize preview for The Silk Road Hunt VI, we're going to learn some Latin so that we don't all end up sounding like barbari (that's Latin for "barbarians") as we trek the empire in search of our SRH6 gifts.

But primum primis - "first things first."  You'll be starting the hunt at the Imperial Palace in Mieville, Dickens.  And here's a picture of the hunt object, which is a nifty little tan pagoda decorated with elegant gold leaf.  You'll see a copy of it as a hint-giver near the landing point for each shop.

SRH6 Hunt Object

Today's group of prize pictures shows carus mercibus - "precious wares" of all kinds.  So let's take a look at what today's merchants have in store for us if we find that cute little gift pagoda at each stop.

The Silk Road Hunt VI: The Roman Empire

June 1 - June 30, 2015

Hunt Prize Preview #1

The sixth annual Silk Road Hunt will start off with a bang next Monday, June 1 with gifts from 75 of the grid's most creative (and generous) merchants.  The theme of this year's hunt is "The Roman Empire," territory that extended across the Middle East to many of the lands that later became part of the fabled Silk Road.  Our merchants have worked hard to make this a fun and worthwhile hunt.  Over the next week or so we'll be posting pictures of the prizes from as many of those hunt stops as possible to make you eager to do the hunt from start to finish.  Take a look at the gift pictures here, and then keep coming back for future posts of additional gifts.
