The pepperoni quiz is a good place to START.
When you’re ready, start the quiz and time how long it takes you. Then use the table to figure out which pepperoni you are.
The answers to the quiz are:
If you missed any, go ahead and correct them now.
The first step tells you to take another pepperoni for every hour in a day, so you should add 24 to your pepperoni score and use that result in step 2.
Participation Pepperoni: 3 + 24 = 27
Meticulous Pepperoni: 5 + 24 = 29
Spicy Pepperoni: 7 + 24 = 31
Primo Pepperoni: 10 + 24 = 34
Multiplying by 10 pepperonis means just adding a zero to the large number in step 11, which results in 2,452,352,142,312,320.
When you finish using the multiplier you should end up with the number 2,452,352,142,312,320. Try to find a place that that number can fit into the paper.
In step 7, you need to give away one quarter of your pepperonis. Make sure that you divide your total pepperonis by four AND subtract that number from the total to get your new number. That step should look like this:
Participation Pepperoni: 288 - (288 / 4) = 216
Meticulous Pepperoni: 312 - (312 / 4) = 234
Spicy Pepperoni: 336 - (336 / 4) = 252
Primo Pepperoni: 372 - (372 / 4) = 279
In steps 8 and 9, when you add the digits together, if you only have one digit in your number, that is your answer.
No matter what score you started with, on step 9 the amount of pepperonis you should end with is 9, meaning that when you add one pepperoni in step 10, your answer is 10.
Your final pepperoni score can be used to fill in the blanks at the bottom of the paper. Each blank corresponds to one digit of the number, in order.
Use the pairs that you filled in with the “5 Questions” section to form a sentence.
Once you match your time to a type of pepperoni, get the score for that type. Then find your total potential by starting with your score and following the 11 steps of the pepperoni multiplier.
Each pair corresponds to some letters in one of the answers to the question. For example, “A1: 1” would be directing you to use the first letter of the first answer.
When you gather all the letters from the answers, you’ll end up with the phrase “MATCH THE PATTERNS, KEEP CHECKS”
The Reading Corner has some interesting patterns, but they don’t always line up with each other.
Using the study conducted by the impartial judge, you need to figure out which locations have checkmarks for each attribute. For example, the fifth finding tells you that “L and P are the only ones to serve cocoa.” The "cocoa" box for L already contains a checkmark as an example, so you need to also add a checkmark in the "cocoa" box for P.
When the grid is filled out, it shows that these boxes are checked:
Cocoa: L, P
Stink: L, B, P
Games: B, P
Sitar: L, B, P, C
Inapt: J, B, C
Quiet: B, P
Sepia: J, L, P
Cider: B, P, C
Plain: L, C
The locations that check the box for “inapt” are J, B, and C.
Now that you know which boxes are checked you need to match the patterns of the attribute to the patterns of the checkboxes. For example, “COCOA” is in the first row, but its pattern matches the one in the ninth row of checkboxes.
The words that you get from the reading corner match up with the Riddle Slaps section.
When you collect all the letters from the findings, you get “OATNAMESTAINPIEEPICDRAIN,” which you separate out into “OAT,” “NAME,” “STAIN,” “PIE,” “EPIC,” “DRAIN.”
From top to bottom the answers to the Riddle Slaps are:
All of the attributes are five letter words, and there are five possible check boxes for each attribute.
If you look closely at The Riddle Slaps section, you can see that the words “first,” “then,” and “last” are all italicized. Apply that to the answers to each of the riddles.
When you take the first letter of each answer, then take the last letter of each answer you get:
Stain = SN
Pie = PE
Epic = EC
Name = NE
Drain = DN
Oat = OT
And when you look at all the firsts together, then all the lasts you get “SPEND ONE CENT.”
It looks like Honcks’ is having a sale. Try to spend one cent there.
Honcks’ has some strange discounts. When you buy certain items, or certain combinations of items, sometimes you end up getting money back.
The only item that might cause you to spend one cent is the Directionals Padlock for $1.01. If you buy that item, though, you’ll need to buy some other items that make the price go down.
There is currently a promotion where you get $1 off when you buy exactly 8 unique items. You already have the Directionals Lock in your cart, so if you can find 7 other items that sum up to $0, then you will be able to spend one cent.
The directional words tell you where to look to locate the objects that you can substitute into the Caroling in July section. When you see the word "up," collect the word above. When you see the word "down," collect the word below. This will give you ten object words.
The items that you can combine to “spend one cent” are:
Directionals Padlock $1.01
Point To Smart Binders & That Printer You Need, $50
Alliterative Sticky Notes, -$44
Objects 5 Lotto Tickets, -$10
Sub Sandwich & “For You” Bouquet, $8
Bolds Label Maker, -$4
Notice that only certain words are underlined in each black circle.
Keep the words in the order that they appear in the black circles from left to right.
When you string together the indicated words of all the products that you bought, you get the phrase “Directionals Point To Alliterative Objects That Sub For Bolds.”
Sometimes you need to combine several findings together to be able to check or not check boxes. For example, the final finding tells you that B and C are the same for “sepia.” The first clue tells you that P has a checkmark in the sepia column. The sixth clue tells you that J has a checkmark in the “sepia” column. Finally, the second finding tells you that exactly three locations have “sepia” checked, so you can infer that B and C do not have “sepia” checked, and that the remaining unknown location, L, does have a checkmark in “sepia.”
Using the clue from the previous puzzle, you “keep checks,” so you need to keep certain letters from each attribute. For example, you would keep the first “O” and the “A” from “COCOA.”
There are directionals on the front side of the paper.
The directional words that you need are found in the article about the roller coaster.
Each of the shapes that you’re looking for is shown once near the top of the page and once near the bottom. Make all the suggested folds and don’t unfold the paper between each fold.
Once you substitute the words into the Caroling in July section, you’ll see that the instructions now read:
Fold STARS to DIAMONDS
Fold ROCKETS to HEARTS
Fold FOLDERS to LIGHTNINGS
Fold CROSSES to MOONS
Fold TEARS to GEARS
Fold phone to phone
Now that you have the words that the directions pointed you to, substitute them into their alliterative matches in the Caroling in July section. The final “fold” instruction is not in bold, so you don’t need to substitute anything.
The ten object words are: MOON, DIAMOND, ROCKET, STAR, HEART, GEAR, CROSS, LIGHTNING, TEAR, FOLDER.
The final answer is “SOLDOUT.” Unfortunately, it looks like the file folder that you needed to buy that would’ve given you a free ticket to ride the Super Duper Upside Down Mega Extreme Loop Coaster is not available, and you’ll have to enjoy the line from a distance.
After you’ve made all the folds, a single word will appear near the bottom of the paper.
