Friday Foxer #142

This week’s handmade co-op puzzle won’t defox itself. If you’re a dab hand at quizzes, lateral thinking, and search engine sleuthing, why not help out.

To fully defox the following geofoxer, identify all ten locations plus the theme that links them.

Last week’s (unverified) glider foxer High Score: 86 (a_monk)


    • ‘Behind the Vulcan building, and dwarfed by it, is a former shell store (Building No. 25) dating from 1856’

      Not surprisingly a place called Gunwharf Keys had a building to store shells.

  1. To chip in on the category it could be molluscs which I don’t think has been explicitly said yet.

    Sea slugs, snails and the various shells are molluscs

    D. Butlers gap, has an octopus as well as the eel and they’re molluscs

  2. Colonel K’s Defoxing Traits:

    1). Foxer requires logical steps and planning = Defoxing ability -1
    last weeks Glider Foxer unprepared first attempt 73
    prepared second attempt 66

    2). Recently woken from nap or sleep = Defoxing ability +1
    I’ll try googling “Ammonite wall”

    A. Dalle aux Ammonites,6.2342833,3a,75y,224.28h,81.79t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sxRzQFU598AERstc15alllg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en-GB&entry=ttu

    • I tried a few random molluscs for that, but only living ones!

      I spent a while earlier hunting for things specifically called ‘christian science society’, and then eventually tracked down H by googling ‘yellow organic shop new zealand’. No naps involved, though.
