By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Before the end of this hallowed night,
one shall claim the winner's right.
There is a path of dappled black,
and on it lie 5 gizmos for you to track.
The first gizmo [7thpixel.com] sure and quick,
cured what made the commoner sick.
The second one [7thpixel.com] had but one design,
set straight what we sought to find.
Before the third [7thpixel.com] men danced in clothes,
washed in spirits before healing woes.
The fourth [7thpixel.com] was held in sacred hands,
in a world buried beneath desert sands.
The fifth [7thpixel.com] a gift to fools,
one of several patented tools.
Before you lies the evening's menu,
but one more thing before I send you.
The clock is not your friend tonight,
you have 3 hours to get it right.
Should ye find all 5 before it's time,
then ye shall stand the winner's line.
But when the 3rd hour has passed,
post your findings within 5 minutes past.
He/she that has the most will win,
and get the game to host again.
Ask your questions carefully and be mindful of what you say.
Do not give away answers found too soon or you'll help another win the day.
