    Default New website with Free Treasure Hunts

    There is a new website at: Free Treasure Hunts

    They offer free treasure hunts sponsored by advertisers. No need to visit a bunch of websites to find clues. All the puzzles and clues are on the Free Treasure Hunts website. A large portion of the proceeds from their hunts are donated to charity.

    Their first regular hunt starts on 1/22/11, but until then they are running a "Turbo Hunt" with a diamond ring prize.

    They have a Facebook page with some video clips at: Free Treasure Hunts | Facebook

    So the clue confirms that the first step is obviously
    converting the dominos to letters/numbers through
    Braille.

    I have converted both the lighted dots and the
    implied converse 'black dots. I have the
    thirteen possible letters but can not come up with
    anything but gibberish.

    Has anyone converted the path through morse code
    and found a message?


    LIBERAL = BRAILLE

    Let me know what you've got. (Regulus)

    Default Domino path

    There are 13 dominos and if you have an inverse analysis (I haven't written the letters I found down), I would try rot 13. let me know how you do and if this was the key. An intersting puzzle this one is. I see this map as a path of dominos, so maybe it is 13 letters then converted by the rot 13...just an idea I haven't tried. I haven't had time to mess with it. I hope you take it. Goodluck!

    Red face maybe,just an idea

    I was thinking that maybe there are numbers to the 16 portions of the map. the top being square 1,the last is 16. In this idea, the domino letter is a rott code possibly according to that square in which its in.
    example(without looking at the map,so don't quote me): a domino is in square 1 thus u rot 1 letter
    2 are in another square, say,square 9. You then rot9 on these two letters.
    this is just an idea...maybe I can find some time to help you out on this one and play with that idea. I do see that there are folds in the map, they must mean something. =)

    tried the folds... didn't ead to anything

    The dominos are in patterns of one and twos, so I was playing with
    a morse code underlining... still playing with those possibilities


    The braille leads to some interesting commas and paraenthesis....
