Hmmm. That's a tough one. Out of curiosity, what were the previous ones?

I'm kind of tired of retyping everything, now that we have 2 places to follow. Check the "what we know" thread, there's a link to the TV Tropes timeline. The riddles are recorded there as well.

I don't think this is a riddle - at least, not in the sense that we're meant to solve it. I think it's just the Cat being a cryptic tease like usual.

That would save me having to trawl through Cheshire's timeline. Dryunya are they all on the ARG timeline?

The answer is one. the kittens, cat sacks and wives were the people the traveller meets along the way.

For those of you who don't know, the original riddle read as follows:

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives.
And every wife had seven sacks,
and every sack had seven cats,
and every cat had seven kits.
Kits, cats, sacks, wives,
how many went to St. Ives?


The answer is one, since the traveller met these things on his way there. Meaning that they were going the other way.

Now, might that have some implications regarding cross-Wall travel?

Someone, in TVTropes thread posted a link to the mobile wikipedia page, that describes the different answers this riddle could have. There were more than one answer. I think that we should choose one.

I brought up being able to go the other way through the wall on tv tropes. Didn't really get discussed but I think it could be relevant considering Poirot's latest post.

I don't know if this is a riddle per say. I think this is just a joke in a way. He would have given us the full Riddle like all the other ones wouldn't he? I think he is just asking if we really think we will survive the shattering of the wall.

Perhaps the only one who would survive a complete shattering is Mr.A, he's the only one who plausibly wouldn't be effected. At least to me. Of course, he doesn't want that to happen either so maybe he would be effected?
If you ever need to ask the questions "Am I needed? Should I help them?" The answer is always yes. Always.

Well, he may be teasing us, but it WAS a response to a tweet asking for a riddle for Act 2. So, he could just be trolling, but I think we should stay open to the possibility of it being a legit riddle.

I started a tweet conversation with the cat, I'll post if anything of interest is said. So far, this is all I got:

@AVeryMadCat So, cat. Just how much do you know?
:D @IntermineStudio More than I am supposed to, less than I want to, exactly as much as I ought.

That's probably the one thing the cat has said all game that has made immediate sense.

Some more:

@AVeryMadCat Very well. That's pretty much what I expected to hear from you. Can you tell us how many have crossed the wall?
@IntermineStudio I am but a student - there is still much left to learn :D #learningisfun #noexamsplease

He said "we should know his hashtags by now". He did post riddles under #RiddleTime. I stand by my claim that it's not an actual riddle.

Agreed. This was just a trolling thing to get people.

I think the word 'Trolling' can describe, to some extent, everything that cat has ever done. (Not that that is a bad thing, mind you.)

But yea, I don't think that message was of the utmost importance, though perhaps it is foreshadowing something.
