clue=What part of this page is the 'mystery' text? name=Kipawa CondorWebmaster: This specific newspaper date is referred to somewhere else on one of the other MM pages (I'll have to look it up). Anyway, the date and page number matched up to a regular newspaper with nothing special on that page, save for this little announcement that said the Historical Games Society was meeting.
After many, many years of digging I think it's a red herring, I think I got off into the weeds on this one, but I've kept the page around nonetheless just in case.
02/07/00 clue=I'd like to know which page refers to this one. I should probably go digging through the copies you sent me. Is it the whole page that is referenced, or only this little section? In any case, after seeing all the things these ads contain, I think we could consider more than just the Historical Games Society, which admittedly seems likely. But what about Advance for Christ, Campus Friends of Israel, or Optimi and Primus (whatever they might be). I just feel like I've been looking at things too narrowly. name=Jessica Augustsson
For what it's worth, most "hitorical games societies" are miniatures warfare clubs.
Caleb (Nihilist) - 06.15.2007Historical Games Society: its a british miniatures wargaming club. additionally, about a year ago on your site, i made a couple posts about what i thought the mystery was pointing to, and those comments were somehow lost or redacted to the best of my knowledge. my comments were that this is about a supposed secret jewish history, as many of the clues point to places where jews did hold power, or were rumored to, conspiracy style. i also said the prize was a new mindset and knowledge, or at least what the mystery master thinks that would be. i dunno if the comments were taken as anti-semitic, or what. additionally, i suspect the mystery master is a jew, lapsed or perhaps not brought up strongly in the religion. his mindset tends towards orthodoxy though, as it relates to this. this is not a Zionist.
