Neatorama presents: HDYK? - {day 1}

It's an all-new 5-day trivia hunt!

Co-puzzle Master Josh Halbur and I are happy to bring you the next How Did You Know? sponsored by our friends over at neatorama.com.


Here's how it works: Starting today, and every day the rest of this week, we'll be presenting two challenges at noon ET. They'll be very similar to the kinds of puzzles you've come to expect from me and Josh, and, yes, they will feed into the Day 5 puzzle, as normal. Each evening, at 8pm ET, we'll be putting up a third challenge loosely based on the day's previous two challenges. You won't need to solve the first two to solve the third, but knowing the day's theme might help you be the first to crack Level 3. Also: note that you'll have to solve Level 3--the bonus--to compete on Day 5

>> Prizes! Each day, one person will win one item from the neatoshop worth $25 or less. Shipping is on the house but the item you pick must be in stock. Oh, and no credit if you don't use up the full $25. To be eligible for the prize, you need to leave the correct answer to Level 3 on the correct neatorama page before 10pm ET. You also need to tell us in that comment what you want if you're selected at random.

>> So what's in it for the person/team who finishes first with all the correct answers? Bragging rights, as always, with your photo/bio posted on our site. But also the chance to win the Day 5 neatorama prize, and, as has been tradition here for the last 30 months of HDYK?, your pick of any one of the amazing t-shirts from our store.

As always, if you're not a Fan of our Facebook page, be sure to add us so we can keep you updated, and you can get in on some additional nifty clues throughout the week. If you're new to our five-day hunt, you can read up on our new Rules page here. Oh, and last month's challenges can be found here if you're curious. Okay, ready to get your Hunt on?
