Puzzle 1: The Palindrome
Hunters arrived at this puzzle site to find an auctioneer selling off a number of items: a race car, a Civic, a kayak, a carpenter's level ... and a pile of poop.
Notice as he's fast-talking the crowd, he settles on certain prices -- and drops a few hints about paying attention to the price.
So which price is the solution to this puzzle?
Each item for sale -- the kayak, the level, the race car, the Civic -- is a palindrome, meaning it reads the same way backwards as forwards. The only price that fit that pattern? $26062.
Thus, the answer is: 26062.
