Samantha Oriflamme Metapuzzle
Solving teams were given a business card like the one shown here:
The phone number is an innocuous palindrome, except that X11 refers to the X11 color names that are the basis of this meta. The web address given led to an online gif of the same file, which solvers could import into the graphics program of their choice, the better to identify those colors.
Answers for this round were:
ADENINES, GRIDIRON, ICONOCLASM, INTERLOCKS, MANHOLES, MENAGERIES, PEARLY GATES, REVIVALS, SLOT CAR, and THERMOLYSIS.
Each answer word is an anagram of a member of the X11 Color Set (each of which appears once in the top row and once in the bottom), plus two extra letters. Each of these extras is to be placed in one of the boxes of the appropriate identified color to reveal the motive message.
Answers/Colors in order by top row:
THERMOLYSIS = MISTY ROSE + H,L; INTERLOCKS = CORNSILK +E,T; SLOT CAR = CORAL +T,S; GRIDIRON = INDIGO + R,R; REVIVALS = SILVER + A,V; MENAGERIES = SEA GREEN + M,I; PEARLY GATES = SLATE GRAY + P,E; ICONOCLASM = MOCCASIN + L,O; MANHOLES = SALMON + E,H; ADENINES = SIENNA + D,E
HE TRAMPLED HER VIOLETS is the solution to this meta.
