• This puzzle is like the Eureka series from JWCorey.
• Below is a list of sentences; each sentence contains a hidden element that is connected by a single theme. The elements will be found in single words and will not require eliminating spaces.
• Order the elements and obtain the cache coordinates. Consider that there are several different ways to order the hidden elements.
• Rearrange the sentences according to the order of the elements.
• Assign the values 0-9 to the newly ordered sentences. For example, if the final sentence order is FHLACDBGEJ then F=0, H=1, ... J=9.
