    Default Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol

    So Dan Brown's new book came out yesterday, and Amazon was a day late in getting me my pre-order, as I just received the book today. www.symbolquest.com had a symbol solving game, that if you completed without any errors, you got a message stating that the cover of the Lost Symbol would hold a special phone number to win one of 33 signed copies of the book. I have solved for it, but there is another puzzle on the book's cover, that I am working on. It seems to me that there is another, hopefully bigger, prize to be obtained. Just like in The Da Vinci Code's book cover. I am getting the best puzzle solvers to attention, may the best win!

    Looks like I got all excited about nothing! lol I solved all of the anomalies on the cover of the book. You get a phone number that has a voice mail that gives you an e-mail to win one of 33 signed editions of the book. You also get 3 messages, each solved differently that say: "Popes Pantheon", "Your Mind is the Key", "All Great Truths Begin as Blasphemies". Nothing world shattering and no prize. Just good fun.

    How do you know "no prize"? Did you follow the instructions and send the email? I just picked up the book tonight and I sent my email. Granted, this late I'm sure 33 people got in ahead of me. The codes are quite simple actually. As for the codes not pertaining to the phone number, I read on the internet that he puts clues to the next book he will be writing. Apperently there were these hidden clues on the covers of all of his previous books. Still it was fun for a few hours distraction.
