    a post from his author:

    Hello everybody,

    Some information and rules about this treasure hunt…

    It consists in 63 riddles which I’ll publish on September 29th at 2 pm (GMT +1). All of the first 60 riddles are independent of each other, you can solve them in any order you wish (but there is one exception, and you ‘ll have to find it).

    If some hunters try to solve the 3 last riddles first, they will be wasting their time, it’s impossible to solve them without the answers to the first 60 riddles.

    The « treasure » you have to find is hidden somewhere in France (not on an island) .

    Participation in this game is absolutely free, you can register on the Riddle Store forum at any moment, in the heading "Inscriptions".

    If you are a part of a team, please login the names of all the team members and the name of the team.

    On September 8th, I’ll publish two « training riddles », so you can have a look at what kind of riddles you’ll have to solve in this game. I’ll give the solutions of these two riddles before the beginning of the hunt.

    You may ask questions about the riddles on the forum, but I’ll not be able to answer dozens of questions everyday. So we’ll proceed like this :

    - October 1st : questions about riddles 1 & 31
    - October 2nd : questions about riddles 2 & 32
    - October 3rd : questions about riddles 3 & 33 and so on, onto :
    - October 30th : questions about riddles 30 & 60
    - November 1st : like October 1st and so on….

    So, no questions for the moment about the 3 last riddles.

    And of course, I will not respond to direct questions about the riddles answers….

    You’ll see that in some riddles there is a picture with the letters ARS. It means that in these riddles you can use the website Ars Cryptographica and its applets to help you to solve all the cryptograms. There are some other websites you could use to do this, like RuffNekk’S Crypto Pages or Cipher Tools, for example…..If the picture ARS is absent, these sites won't be able to help you.

    At the bottom of some riddles, you’ll find a web link giving access to a picture. Collect all these pictures, they will be useful at the end of the game.

    One last note : in order to solve and answer the 63th riddle, you must also find the « treasure ». So, it is not worth trying to answer this riddle without the « treasure ».

    The true prize is the hunt itself.

    It is starting this saturday and you could just give a look, a try and then see ...

    Potentially part of the Riddles will be in English, Russian, Corean or even some lost forgotten languages, it wouldn't be the first time

    Who knows ?
