Introducing Torchard - A Twisted Advertising Game.

RULES: 1. You'll be given a set of clues. 2. You'll have to decode the clues first. 3. If you arrange the first letters of all the decoded clues, you'll arrive at a master keyword, which I shall call acrostic. The number of letters in the acrostic must match the number of clues. 4. Your job will be to identify the acrostic. The acrostic could be an ad agency, an ad man, the name of a commercial etc. 5. Every clue cracked will yield you an apple. 6. If you crack all the clues and the acrostic, you win an Orchard. 7. Answers will have to be posted in the comments section. 8. The first person who gets all the answers right is the champ for that puzzle.

Murali gets 7 apples. And misses the Orchard by 3 whiskers. The chappie who gets the three apples, wins an orchard.

LEO BURNETT is the Acrostic

Okie is the outdoor awards

Dont know FCUK (I think its some legendary fashion designer Nicole something)& the tea ad is a blank.

I think since everyone's got bits and pieces, no gets the Orchard. The final solution is:

Lemon
Evolution
Obies (not Orkies)
Belding
Unif Tea (not Uni)
Ridley Scott
Naved Akhtar
Esso
Trevor Beattie
Trajan

Acrostic: LEO BURNETT

Good job by Naveen. Since, Deepan already uttered Trajan (albeit with a question mark), I shall give half an apple to Naveen & Deepan. Harish gets nothing :-)

Final score:
Murali - 7 apples
Deepan - Half an apple
Naveen - Half an apple
