New Da-Vinci-Code-movie puzzle, by Google

    According to Google, the puzzles require skill, intellect, and perseverance. Google promises that should anyone answer all 24 puzzles correctly, they will have a chance of winning "untold riches." (oooh) The Google webquests run over a span of 24 days ending May 11th 2006. One new puzzle of the 24 are released everyday. There are 12 out to date.

    Well, who has been doing it? It is great fun! I just finished the 12th a few minutes ago. I hope I get untold riches.

    The prizes: http://flash.sonypictures.com/movies/davincicodequest/us/prizing/index.html

    :biggrin: Happy hunting!

    Oh I forgot, you probably want to know where to start. Well, go to

    http://google.com/ig

    and sign in, then add the Da Vinci Code panel. If you don't have a google account, PM me and I'll give you one. Because I'm good like that.

    Like the puzzles in the book, these are almost interesting. But I'm solving them anyway. I already have untold wealth. At least no one told me about it.

    Funny you should ask just as I found out the answer. I got this e-mail (actually two copies from two sources).

    So sad. The consolation message above implies that there was a time issue. I don't remember reading about that in the contest rules and if I had known, I would have been more careful about the matter. Oh well.
