It contains more than two of the letters from SPRING, but less than two of the letters from GEAR. It helps you get to 5 when counting a child's toes ("this little piggy went to market..."), and according to the internet someone once filed a lawsuit based on the fact that there is technically no such thing as prime pork.


There were several wee thought out word answers like this one.

The puzzle was given in the 2nd message in this thread.

Solve this to win an ultra-rare.
Verified winners only should dare.
It is more than 2 from spring.
Less than 2 from gear.
Every one can help you get to 5.
Really not prime I hear

There were a number of answers sent to me. Some were very creative, but only 2 came close to the correct answer:
Impyreah answered Medium Gold Gear #14,
Nyrax answered Small Gold Reel (#18).

They both realized the answer was one of the Tinker Toys (spring, gear, helps you get to 5). And they both used the 3rd and 4th lines to narrow it down. Impyreah took the 5th line to mean the digits add-up to 5. However, they both missed the final clue. Without the final clue there are 7 (technically 14) answers which meet the criteria.

I will let people work on this more if they want. Technically a 2nd answer could work and I would have accepted that one too.


The clue nobody saw was the first letter of each line is an anagram of "SILVER". Nyrax correctly gave the answer as Large Silver Sprocket (#9).
