    How about clues for the names of U.S. cities?

    For example “Hidden in Hidden Version” ftp15

    or “Bo’s not confused” ftp 15

    Also, if you have ideas for fun places to point Tanga Times readers to, email Aaron at If your idea is used in the Tanga Times you won’t be sorry.

    Here’s yesterday’s winner

    which is also the basis for our second coloring contest!

    (It was Kete’s immediate favorite and she didn’t even see the puzzle in it)

    Color this image in and post your colored version on this blog before tomorrow’s Tanga Times goes to print.

    40 tp to the winner, who will be chosen this time by Aaron’s neighbor, Doctor Dugan. The funny thing is he’s not a doctor. His first name is Doctor! He makes his living designing pet clothing and accessories. His specialty is reptiles. Go figure.

    The runner up will get 20 TP.

    Oh and here’s yesterday’s runner up

    Site Redesign

    In preparation for our super secret project, we’re spending some time on redesigning this little website.

    Here’s your chance to give us feedback on stuff you think we could improve. What’s not clear? What’s hard to use? What is butt ugly?

    Thanks for your patience with our recent difficulties.

    The words FLOW and LOWER can intersect to make the word FLOWER

    So you could clue the word FLOWER as follows:

    Move as a liquid – Closer to the ground – [overlap 3]

    Can people find more overlappers?

    The reward for a published puzzle just went up from 20 to 50 points.

    Coloring contest winners as chosen by Kate:

    1st place goes to spamwise

    The runner up is kswitz

    Kate says it was a tough choice, especially considering the high quality pandering and efforts such as this.

    Who can think of common two word expressions where both words start with the same two letters?

    Like French Fries, for example.

    Contract issues with the URSG (you know how those unions are!)

    Hey, isn’t it about time for a Tanga tee shirt? In our time honored tradition of extracting every trace of creativity from the brains of our users, we’re having a tee shirt design contest.

    Post designs right here on this blog. We’ll all be able to comment on the various designs before a secret panel of former art museum security guards will choose the winner.

    You need to post your comment first, then you will see an upload link to upload your image file.

    The deadline for posting designs is Bastille Day (July 14).

    Please don’t post anything that could possibly offend anyone.

    The creator of the winning design will receive 500 Tanga Points and two free shirts.

    Have at it!

    Let’s play a little game inspired by Montage

    1 = A, B, C, D, or E
    2 = F, G, H, I or J
    3 = K, L, M, N, or O
    4 = P, Q, R, S, or T
    5 = U, V, W, X, Y or Z

    Here are some examples of clues:

    2432 (it hops)
    314 (encountered an opera house)
    221312 (little 4-eyed peace dude)
    235 (animal channel?)

    who can think of some?

    New Tanga Point Program

    The Monkeys at Tanga have decided that we need to figure out a way to reward all of our great Tanganites who have been collecting Tanga Points for the past several months. We have listened to your feedback, received valuable insight from our top users and have come up with a great program that we think you will enjoy.

    The Leaderboard that we launched last month works well for those who are in the top 10 but it doesn’t do very much for those who don’t purchase bunches of products and participate in Daily Fun every evening. So we like to introduce our Tanga Point Program!

    Our new program rewards all of our customers with the chance to earn Tanga Cash Rewards in the form of a credit in your account. With every purchase you make and every puzzle you solve or have published, you will receive Tanga Points. When you reach a certain number of Tanga Points, you will earn a new rank, icon and a reward!

    Starting today, you will retroactively receive Tanga Points according to the current amounts of Tanga Points for purchases. So if all products you have purchased from the beginning of Tanga will now show up as 30 Tanga Points (or 50 if you were the first or last to purchase.) Any Tanga Points you used for auctions will be given back to you as they are no longer used as a currency.

    For EACH level you achieve, you will get your new rank, title, icon and Tanga Cash reward added to your account that you can use at any time.

    For those who start out the system at level 4 (for example) you will automatically get the rewards for all previous levels added to your account!

    Here is what the levels look like:

    Points   Level	   Reward
    0	    Level 0	 0
    100	  Level 1	 0
    500	  Level 2	 $5
    1000	 Level 3	 $5
    2000	 Level 4	 Super Tanga User
    3000	 Level 5	 $5
    4000	 Level 6	 $5
    6000	 Level 7	 $10
    8000	 Level 8	 $10
    10000    Level 9	 $10
    15000	Level 10	$25
    20000	Level 11	$25
    30000	Level 12	$50
    40000	Level 13	$50
    50000	Level 14	$50
    75000	Level 15	$150
    100000   Level 16	$200

    You will notice that level 4 is a special level! We have finally implemented our Super Tanga User status. STUs receive special treatment and will have access to STU only deals that we will randomly put on the website once a month, special access to give user feedback and other benefits. If you become an STU, please make sure to sign up for our email or text message alerts so you don’t miss out on any STU only deals.

    We have decided to keep the level titles and icons a secret so that you will be surprised to see what they are when you finally get to a certain level.

    What will happen to the Leaderboard? It will still be there and we will continue to give Tanga Cash prizes to the top 10 for each month and special prizes to the top 10 yearly leaders.

    We hope you enjoy the new program and hope that you will continue to visit Tanga and share our company with your friends and family!

    You can pet your pet.

    You can drink your drink.

    What else?

    Also, if you get an idea for a puzzle (visually nice) the answer to which is a season’s greeting (Christmas or other winter holiday) jot it down and wait. We will be launching a greeting card design contest soon…

    A famous actor gives you his autograph. He writes his first initial and his full last name. You read his autograph aloud to him and walk away.

    Who is he?


    And hey, those points are worth a little something now…

    Here’s another website finding challenge but not as ridiculously hard as the last one.

    Find a website that has one obvious thing on it of a particular color.

    For example the Kellogs home page along with RED encodes the word TOMATO.

    If we can find a bunch of these we can make something out of it. So post the url and the color, but not the word.

    Ok let’s go one level higher.

    How about some ideas for Hypercross themes/structures etc.

    At some point users will be able to submit Hypercross words/clues but in the mean time this is a way to get more minds in on the making of the puzzles.
