After solving all five metas connecting the first five towns (Christmas Town, Halloween Town, Thanksgiving Town, Valentine’s Day Town, and President’s Day Town), the team received a visit to their headquarters from the Mayor of Your Birthday Town to help them celebrate.
The Mayor brought the team a birthday present—which was sealed with four locks: a 4-digit numerical combination lock, a 4-letter combination lock, a directional combination lock, and a key-based padlock.
The Mayor led the team in several birthday party games:
The fourth lock was opened by a key hidden inside “Assistant Mayor Wingding,” a small piñata introduced at the beginning and set aside.
With this information and key, the team was finally able to open the present, only to find . . . the box was empty!
The Mayor revealed themselves to actually be the APRIL FOOL! Gloating over another successful prank, they explained that the flood had occurred because they had stolen the manhole cover from the tank in Molasses Awareness Day Town. That major prank was a way to let them spread chaos in the other holiday towns, and to get back at the world for their having been demoted from once having been the New Year.
