    I was just about to post about this! I found out about it at work today and was surprised I hadn't heard about it yet. The cool part is that 10,000 finalists get sent an actual "cryptex" replica like in the book that contains instructions for the final round. Not to mention the fact that the winner and three guests get all expenses trips to the locations from the book... SWEET!

    As for the puzzles, I haven't worked on them yet, but they're supposed to get trickier as the game progresses. Oh, and not to fear, the game started on Monday, but you can do the daily puzzles at any time in any order. So get crackin'! It would be great for a Twelever to win!

    The first couple puzzles are very easy. One of the reasons that I entered was for the replica cryptex .

    If anyone doesn't want to read the fine print it basically states that there are 2 phases for this, be one of the first 10,000 to solve the 24 daily puzzles (released one per day) to complete the first phase. If qualified then you will go on to phase 2 where you will receive the replica as part of a final 4/5 part puzzle that the first person to solve will win the grand prize.

    I like this because you actually have a time element and its not whoever can solve this gets put in a drawing for the grand prize. It actually depends on being the first to solve.

    Good luck to all who enter!

    Hopefully the cryptex replica isn't exact enough that it includes the acid that destroys its contents if it's dropped.

    SQUEE!!

    Final Phase. Finalists will be mailed via U.S. postal service, for scheduled delivery by May 18, 2006, a limited edition Cryptex replica and a screenshot of 4 codes (the "Finalist Prize"). One of the included codes will open the Cryptex. Inside will be a scroll with instructions on how to access the Final Puzzle Challenge online. Prior to May 18, 2006, Finalists will also be e-mailed instructions at the email address provided by each Finalist on his/her Official Contest Entry on how to access the Final Puzzle Challenge.
