You return to your desk at work to find the following objects:

A small cube, a small square, a human hand, a diagram of the A-minor chord, a Twix bar, a toy slot machine, a tool for flat tires, a Lebron James figurine, a Pearl Jam CD, a toy car without wheels, a revolver, a picture of Cincinnati, and a small replica of a football field-goal post.

How are all of these objects related?

  • $\begingroup$ Were they all stolen or used in committting a crime? Maybe they are murder weapons. $\endgroup$ – user64742 Jun 21 '16 at 21:34

Well if you take

the first letters of the question's title, you get: CARD GAME.

So the objects represent

each value of a suit of cards from Ace to King.

A cube has 8 vertices
A square has 4 sides A small square = $3^2$ = 9
A hand has 5 fingers
An A-minor chord is made of the notes A, C, and E giving ACE
There are 2 pieces in a Twix bar
A toy slot machine has a jackpot of 7s?
A tool for flat tires is a Jack
Lebron is King James
Pearl Jam has an album Ten
A toy car is missing 4 wheels
Cincinnati is the Queen city
A revolver is sometimes called a 6-shooter
A field goal is worth 3 points

  • $\begingroup$ A small cube = 2 ^ 3, a small square = 3 ^ 2? $\endgroup$ – APrough Jun 21 '16 at 16:42
  • $\begingroup$ This is probably a long shot but "hotwheels" has 9 letters.... $\endgroup$ – Neon612 Jun 21 '16 at 16:51
  • $\begingroup$ @Neon612 That seems legit, but no idea if it's what OP intended! $\endgroup$ – Dan Russell Jun 21 '16 at 16:51
  • $\begingroup$ Also a "hot" item is a stolen item. So, the wheels are missing.... Does that mean they are hot? $\endgroup$ – Neon612 Jun 21 '16 at 16:52

    $\begingroup$ @Neon612 I knew they were turning all my childhood toys into blockbuster movies (Transformers, GI Joe, Legos, etc.) but I hadn't realized until just now that the Fast and Furious movies are the same thing for Hotwheels! ;) $\endgroup$ – Dan Russell Jun 21 '16 at 16:55

  • $\begingroup$ Incorrect answers: square, cube, chord, slot machine, tool, LBJ, toy car, Cincinnati. You're on the right track though. $\endgroup$ – glassy Jun 21 '16 at 16:54
  • $\begingroup$ Think about the order of the numbers. $\endgroup$ – user64742 Jun 21 '16 at 21:33
