2 ) Dig up some people to hunt with you -- family members or friends -- and head downtown. Make sure you have the Magazine, a pen or pencil and at least one cellphone with text-messaging capabilities.

3 ) Before noon, arrive at the Hunt Stage in Freedom Plaza (located at coordinates L-6 on the Hunt Map). At noon, we will make an announcement from the stage that, combined with the answers to the Opening Questions, will give you the map coordinates for the initial locations of the five Puzzles.

4 ) Visit the Puzzle sites in any order you wish. The solution to each will be a number. Each number will correspond to the number of one of the Clues on Pages 18, 19 and 20. These five clues will be essential to solving the Hunt.

5 ) Gather by the Hunt Stage at 3 p.m. The Final Clue will be announced from the stage. Use the Final Clue, along with the five clues you already have, to figure out what you need to do to win.

6 ) After the Final Clue is announced, either solve the Hunt or decide that you can't solve it, and relax around the stage area until we present the Hunt winners and all the solutions.
