I think "F" is for Franz Kafka

Wow Frank Kafza!! Is he from one of your detour task in your game, Dan?? Maybe the detour is the same task??  :lol: :lol:
I thought about it because in the Franz Kafka museum in Prague, there's this creepy labyrinth with a phone at the end which keeps ringing and you can actually answer it. It's supposed to be a symbol of the bueraucracy and how it drove Kafka nuts.

I think the RB answer is Frank Kafza and bring them to the Frank Kafza Museum for the detour??
I saw the Clay Golum form there.. Maybe is in the museum??  :duno:




I think the quote is from one of the trotter telling the one doing the RB??  :duno:

Here is it..



Golem!! I think Sam and Dan is moving the Clay Golem..

From Wiki:

As the Golem of Prague was the first that had been seen up until then, it was always called Golem, in other words that was simply its name.

In later history, the word was generalized into a more common term for this class of beings: golems. Many other golems appeared in culture, inspired by the original Golem from Prague. Some referred back to the original story, others used the concept of golems without any reference to Prague at all, ignoring or even not knowing its origin and original purpose.

Think the detour is at Frank Kafza Museum as from wiki:

Nobel Prize winner Isaac Bashevis Singer wrote a short story called "A Friend of Kafka," which was about a Yiddish actor called Jacques Kohn who said he knew Franz Kafka. In this story, according to Jacques Kohn, Kafka believed in the Golem, a legendary creature from Jewish folklore.

The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

From the title thread:



I think "F" is for Franz Kafka


I thought about it because in the Franz Kafka museum in Prague, there's this creepy labyrinth with a phone at the end which keeps ringing and you can actually answer it. It's supposed to be a symbol of the bueraucracy and how it drove Kafka nuts.

I wonder if Brian and Ericka are trying to get wine to serve off of a dumbwaiter, perhaps in a cafe or something??

My guess would be that Meghan says the title to Dan.  I'm thinking Meghan is smart enough to know about Kafka and Dan isn't.  (Can anyone say, "Chekhov"?)

 :funny: :funny: :funny:

I think since everyone saying F, A.. in the rb. The answer maybe is Frank Kafza.. Where the clue is at Frank Kafza Museum.. Maybe is a Frank Kafza theme too..



The RB Location is tough.. But it do look  like some courtyard.. I can see nice tiles floor..




I wonder if Brian and Ericka are trying to get wine to serve off of a dumbwaiter, perhaps in a cafe or something??

Frank Kafza is a famous writer.. If anyone read his book.. They will know him..
 :flirt:

Franz Kafza here is a famous writer in cezch.. Under his name there is a museum built for him..


From Wiki:

Franz Kafka ;3 July 1883 – 3 June 1924) was a major fiction writer of the 20th century. He was born to a middle-class German-speaking Jewish family in Prague, Bohemia (presently the Czech Republic), Austria–Hungary. His unique body of writing—much of which is incomplete and which was mainly published posthumously—is considered to be among the most influential in Western literature.

Kafka was born in one of the houses on Prague's Old Town Square, right next to the Church of St. Nicholas. A gallery with a permanent exposition on Kafka's life has been opened in this house.

His stories include The Metamorphosis (1912) and In the Penal Colony (1914), while his novels are The Trial (1925), The Castle (1926) and Amerika (1927).

 :funny: :funny:

Okay, so the Roadblock is the telephone thing: They'll probably be getting all sorts of calls from everywhere in the room, and the letters they get are going to be scrambled up. I don't know how many calls they'll get (10?), and that's what their next clue is -- the answer? Or are they already there when they do the Roadblock?

If the answer is what we deduce.. Frank Kafka, Maybe is 10..
