Thanx so much HG and Juxta, best start to a morning I've had in ages, I keep looking over it in my solve list and still can't bring myself to believe that it is actually complete.

Apolgies for listing the wrong solve - that was not intentional
I had it recorded wrongly in my records (had not filled in final solve on my spreadsheet so what you got was my last incorrect one...).

Because they enjoy torturing you????
Maybe they didnt even realise the code was printed wrong? And assumed that K-1 arena fighters used the real code?

Woo! Congrats Juxta. This card has been the bane of my existance, but now I am free from its evil grasp.
<moan>Why did MC tell me "There's a simpler description of this one than the one you've supplied" when it seems K-1 The Arena Fighters was completely incorrect!</moan>
Oh well, at least it is solved now...

Cool so now I just gotta wait 19 hours 23 mins.... before I can try again!
I hope that when these cards are re-released in the 3rd wave the typos are fixed. Although saying that because these are limited edition (of thousands!!!) it may be worth somat one day because its printed wrong...

No adulation - right ok
Just to comfirm Juxta's solve is correct - yeay well done him - sorry no adulation
Sereously Thanks to all those who helpped with this one couldn't have done it with out all the input.

Right. Here goes, and no, I don't want any adulation, I simply pieced together the bits and pieces along with the rest of you, and was one of a number of people who sent emails requesting help (although, I did it to Kurt, as it is one of his bloomin' cards!)
I think Mind Candy got the message that the nature of a card with 10 possible answers, each one of which might have multiple options for entry, combined with a pair of typo's was perhaps asking a bit much
Anyway. Collaboration people, "To work together, especially in a joint intellectual effort.". Good efforts, all round.
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Contra Code (No "The")
Street Fighter 2
Super Mario Kart
Jet Set Willy
Hope that this helps - my solve was accepted.

kudos to Honest Goblin.
However it's not working for me either, upper or lower case. What a nightmare.
Has anyone else had a correct for this?
Posted: Thu Nov 03, 2005 4:19 pm
Yeah. Doesn't work for me, either. Odd.
Posted: Thu Nov 03, 2005 3:53 pm
Oh, man. I tried it with just "Contra" a while back without "the" and "code," and it didn't work.
I used up my last chance today at getting it right with the above-mentioned answers, but I must have mistyped something because it told me it was incorrect. Now I get to wait another 24 hours.

Well done! At last someone solved it! Must admit the continual failed attempts was beginning to wear me down!
Typical that isn't it? why didnt they tell us about the misprint in the 1st email that someone sent???? We could of saved alot of hair pulling on this!!
Again well done honest goblin! welcome to the club!
edit: hmmm the answers won't work in either lower case or capitals for the 1st letter.......

Honest Goblin - congratulations on the solve!!
Bloody good work old chap or chapette! I am not worthy. I promise that, out of respect, I will never make eye-contact with you and will always have an air of awe about me when I read your posts.
Now, I shall go and take my medication.

Waah, I entered exactly what HG put and I got incorrect - and now I'm locked out! This is really getting me down!
Posted: Thu Nov 03, 2005 1:23 pm
You are a god among men Honest goblin, Someone finally getting it "correct" (Through gritted teeth I type that) Is a load off all our decks. I too am back to Shuffled. Sorry for the edit but I tried it exactly and still the Mind Candy god scoff me with an incorrect answer. What have I done wrong?
Posted: Thu Nov 03, 2005 12:55 pm
...You're kidding. My answer was invalid because I didn't use the word "the" before Contra Code?
Oh, I am so gonna burn this card. Just as soon as I get my points.
