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)

6. ## 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!

7. ## 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....

9. ## One hunt ending, and another one beginning!

Turbo Hunt A will be ending tomorrow, and Hunt 1 will be beginning. More info on their forum.

10. ## Hunt 1 has begun!
