Say if I thought 1 = A, then it would automagically replace all the 1s with As.

Then I noticed that the word 6-16-3 appeared twice. THE was a logical guess for that word. Once I had that, other words started to fall into place. If that hadn't been correct, I probably would have counted number frequency to try to guess letters based on that (E being the most common, etc.). Thankfully THE was correct, and the rest was Kaemon Awa dominating the end game, as usual.
Ah, I see! I figured that the numbers were representing letters, but I forgot to check for any three-letter words to see if "the" could line up. I focused on the extra numbers provided in the second post for a little bit to try and see the connection, but by the time that I came back around to it, the puzzle was already solved. Congratulations!

Just a little nod to my early days of Heroscape.

Prior to a new wave being released, it was possible through a little URL wrangling to get early peaks at bios and stats for upcoming figures on the Hasbro websites.

The 249603 is the last part of the URL for the Tagawa Samurai Archers in the "Books of Heroscape" thread. (as noted above)

I hinted at the bio in my first post with an italicized b-I-o

Once you found the bio it was just matching the letter positions and replacing the numbers.

I thought about changing the numbers up (especially the vowels in words like "the" but after counting to 502 to make sure "v" was right, I changed my mind.

I'm just happy someone figured it out before I had to post: "wash a margarita saucer"


Now I'll need to find another way to give some of these away...

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

Re: Easiest SWAG contest ever...

Let's do another really random drawing this Wednesday.

The wife is being induced with baby #6 on Tuesday at 7 a.m.

Feel free to post your guess as to what time baby will arrive and the closest guess wins.

Congrats on another child! It was also heartwarming to see the previous two videos.
