The $5,000 Trivia Treasure Hunt Challenge (Paperback)
This is an unusual book. In fact, it's the first book of its kind, challenging the reader to locate a treasure of $5,000 through trivia, games and puzzles. The whole book is a new concept, because of the fact that the money will be given away to one of the successful challengers. What needs to be discovered is the place, a number, the city and the state where the treasure is located. Clues will be present throughout the journey, depicted by words, letters and numbers. Most of all, it is an entertaining adventure, starting with trivia questions that are fun and informative. At first glance, the reader may wonder where the words to the word search are. One may also wonder where the mazes are, but both will be evident and appear when you get to that point. More trivia will assist the challenger through the pages. The book is your road map to solving the mystery. It contains numerous kinds of puzzles including: quote falls with clues, figuring out numbers--not only through math, but also through ingeniously clever means, and creative sudoku puzzles like you have never seen before. Both logic and common sense should be used in order to complete the puzzles and find the $5,000 treasure. The adventure can be done solo, but I promise, it will be much more amusing if you do it with family, friends or even college buddies, for it's the going, not the getting there that's good. The trivia alone is worth the price of admission, with 50 pages covering movies, music, history, sports and many other topics, as well as, individual subjects like The Beatles, Elvis, Seinfeld and others. The trivia runs throughout the puzzles and games, giving the reader clues along the way to find the location of the $5,000 treasure. Entry form is included.

It has worked its way up to a challenge, but Glenn's hope is that this book can be as informative as it can be fun. Families, friends and students can be brought together to play the trivia, solve the puzzles and find the treasure. Glenn grew up in the Bronx, New York.
