10 plus whatever is on the back of the fathom box. I don’t think the mermaid tail counts, even though it looks like the other tridents.

 

anyone have a hq scam of the fathom box.

Am I the only person who cares that "octopuses" is not the correct plural form? 

 

Octopi was actually a word in my grade one reading book (each chapter of which covered a different animal). 

 

Back on topic, is there any information that the prize was ever awarded, e.g. a notice in the Imagic "Numb Thumb" newsletter?

Not true.

 

I'm pulling from the Oxford English Dictionary here:

 

Quote

The standard plural in English of octopus is octopuses. However, the word octopus comes from Greek and the Greek plural form octopodes is still occasionally used. The plural form octopi, formed according to rules for some Latin plurals, is incorrect.

Sadly, I have apparently been spelling that word incorrectly for more than forty years. 😢

This is cool!   Its a clever way to get the reader to focus very hard on the marketing.
