    Default Golden Key Quest

    http://goldenkeyquest.com/Home_Page.html

    Saw this link on another website and was not sure if it has already been mentioned here. Looks fun.

    Enjoy!

    They use the "Microsoft Office Word" program, which has a cheap cipher feature to it. The message they want you to decipher:

    Go To GoldenKeyJewels Page.
    Find And Then Decipher The Code.
    Remember, This Is Not The Main Site.
    Decipher The Code To Find Your Instructions.

    The above code is only to hone your skills. The true code is from the Golden Key Jewels page. This allows you to get into the hunt. The hunt won't start until enough people have registered, so I would get in there and give it a try. The rest of us who have followed the instructions are only waiting until the main page becomes active.

    Good Luck!

    Ok I got to the download page with the dots. I'm lost though on how to figure this out. This is just to get to the main page?

    I feel so dumb!!!

    Don't want to give everything away. Each dot is a unique custom colour. Check out how this page was created by showing the formatting. PM me if you want more, I think I've posted enough to be able to read them now. The instructions you get tell you how to register for the hunt and where to go once the main hunt becomes active. I'm hoping I won't have to wait too long to get going, I'm very intrigued at how this will play out.

    Oh, and MDC777, quit being so hard on yourself. This is the first time I've deciphered a puzzle before someone else myself. Before that, I felt pretty useless as well. That's why I like these forums, so we can support each other. Next one, you can help me. Sound good?

    Cheers,

    Centura

    There has been a change on the entry site. They are now listing who has registered and what ranking they are. So far there are only 22 people. I'm number 15! Woohoo! At least now we know that we deciphered the code correctly. No word yet when the main site will open. Congrats to all who have already registered. And to those who are still working at it, don't give up!

    I'd like to point out some of the small print...

    There are no legal rights to the money whatsoever, under any circumstances, at any time. We award it at our own discretion or not at all.

    It's not a place, it's a yearning. It's not a race, it's a journey.

    Geez RD, every one of these hunts that come out you find some way to dicredit it. I have no problems with someone being cynical, that's their choice, but have you ever done a hunt just for the fun of it? Sometimes life is more enjoyable when you don't expect anything and just let it happen. It's alot easier then always trying to find what is wrong with every situation.

    That aside, there is something that disturbs me with this hunt. They have now listed all the cities of people playing. We never gave this info. How did they find this and should we be worried that they can get this info?

    They are likely using IP addresses to get the cities.
    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!

    I was not trying to discredit this hunt. The website does it by itself with no help from me.

    I'm disturbed by this hunt mainly because of the late '90s era website design.

    But fear not! You just have fun out there.
