How Did You Know? - {day 4}

Original image

Play for your chance to WIN a $100 shopping spree in our store!

If you didn't hear, we're back with a totally redesigned, and retooled Trivia Hunt!

Over the last 14 months, How Did You Know? has undergone many changes, but none as big as this month's. We've listened to your comments and criticism, both negative and positive, and have rethought not only the prizes, but the very way the challenges are presented. Don't worry, we still have all your favorite challenges, like One of These Things is not Like the Others, Name that Movie, and our killer camouflage puzzles, but starting this month, we're adding a real scavenger hunt element to the challenges. As comments have been turned off for the length of the 5-day hunt, be sure to let us know via e-mail what you think of the retool.
As always, it pays to play whether you're the first in with all the correct answers or not. In addition to the $100 shopping spree first-prize, we're also giving away a $50 shopping spree in our store to one random winner who has all the right answers but isn't the first to e-mail them in. Random winners sometimes submit all the correct answers/logic a full 48 hours after the closing bell, so don't worry if you're late or can't submit your final answers at 8 pm ET next Monday.

Have fun with it, and, as always, don't hesitate to work in teams and e-mail all your friends for help. Many, if not most of our past HDYK winners have been teams, not individuals. Our current champion is Natt Supab. Read all about her here.

If you're new to the 5-day trivia hunt, be sure to see the rules and regulations page here. If you missed Day 1, that can be found right here. Day 2 is this-a-way and Day 3 is here. Now on to our fourth challenge.

Today I've got a riddle for you to solve. Those who've been playing HDYK since the beginning might remember part of this, but we're looking for three words in this riddle. On each of the following pages, you'll be asked to find a clue. Once you have the correct clue, plug it in to reveal the next part of the riddle. But remember: you'll need to submit all the clue words next Monday, too, so you can't skip ahead. Hold onto these answers and send them in with the rest of the week's answers.

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
