When reconstructing the city, the 1-6-2-6 tile goes in the center-left position of the grid. When destroying the city, Godzilla can jump to and destroy buildings anywhere in the grid, regardless of its position. You won't need to keep track of its path, either. Building destructions are all based on wordplay. They are all actual Japanese buildings, but you won't need to research anything about those buildings.

You may now send a team member over to the city grid that we've built. Say 'MOTHRA' to the staffer to knock down a RED building and learn its height.

Say 'MST3K' to the staffer to knock down a RED or YELLOW building and learn its height. After destroying all the buildings referenced in the story, you should have 8 buildings remaining. When looking for your final answer, you'll need to combine information from both grids.

Say 'RAMPAGE' to the staffer to knock down a RED, YELLOW, or BLUE building and learn its height. Your answer will be eight letters long. Can you think of a way to get one letter from each building?

"Oh, you can't come because you're unable to hail a cab? Oh, yeah...I guess I can see how that's a problem," Joan replied upon hearing Godzilla's response. "Well, best of luck!"

Optimistic, she went to the next name on her list..
