Tic-Tac-Toe-Two

George and Neal have an unhealthy obsession with Milton Bradley and other board games. This obsession, however, has proven beneficial. For instance George and Neal won second place at the Life Board Game National Competition two times (1956 and 1978). Also, George and Neal amassed a small fortune after creating the game "Tic-Tac-Toe-Two, which was the same game as Tic-Tac-Toe, except it had 3 extra boxes and 74 needlessly complicated rules. If you could withstand the tutorial, it was a surprisingly fun game. Its sales in America were abysmal, but did well in Australia under its alternate name "Tic-Tac-Dingo-Ate-My-Baby-Toe".

The Secret Society of ¤

In 1956 George and Neal founded a super-duper-triple-secret organization. I can't tell you the name of the society or I would have to kill you, but I can tell you that it can be recognized by the symbol ¤. Our meeting houses have sprung up all over the country and we have placed them very close to highways to make them easily accessible. You've probably seen the dome/pyramid hybrid buildings near exit and entrance ramps. Membership is by invitation only. We do have a way to gain entry without a formal invitation, however. All you have to do is solve the following riddle and then knock on the door to one of our meeting houses with the answer. "What number comes next in this series: 1, 11, 21, 1211, 111221, 312211, 13112221, ???" We're waiting!

 

The Secret Society of ¤ - You'll know when to come for the meetings by answering the following: "There is a commonly used eight letter word that can be abbreviated by it's first letter, first two letters, first three letters, first four letters, or first five letters. All abbreviations and the word itself are commonly used. What is the word?"
