An entry in Fortnightly Topic Challenge #27: Treasure-Hunt...
There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island.
— Walt Disney
Put on your hiking boots, we're going on a treasure hunt—for words!
You'll be exploring the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit, looking for 13 words which will, perhaps, sum up both your experience with solving this puzzle and my experience with setting it. To get you started, I've already given you 3½ of the words. You'll have to find the rest....
And to find those, you'll have to figure out HOW to find the rest.
- A tubular section or hollow cylinder used mainly to convey substances which flow.
- A collection of tissues joined in a structural unit to serve a common function.
- Money given to an organization, especially one that helps people.
- NHL penalty area?
- An passage underground.
- You must go to it, if it does not come to you.
- Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature, An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature.
- As of 2008, more than one in two humans live in one.
- He often looks good in a suit?
- Like this clue: not very specific.
- People in general.
- Congress has an important one?
- A pile of hay.
- A knight for a knight.
The hidden treasure:
|————————— 1985: P1W1
|————————— P2W102 + thing
Because the nature of this particular hunt means that over time some, if not all, the treasure may be taken away by others, once solved I will replace the current treasure clues with ones that do not require an off-site resource.
