    Looking forward to the story and puzzle. Hope it is more stimulating than chasing text like another puzzle I am ready to throw away. Some of Matt's previous puzzles are unbelievable, so this one being progressive should be great.

    Rx Jeff, can you direct us to a site where we can "sample" some of Matt's puzzles?

    Here is what I had found. There is much info from Midnight Madness here:
    Midnight Madness 2013#

    A nice write-up on a similar corporate hunt:

    Mat stopped doing the midnight madness hunts back in 2007 so anything after that was not his. They were based on location to location and since the Endgame hunt will be for keys in locations across the world, it should be similar with regards to the book. Take Frey out of the equation. This will be a good one.

    I also read an article that wasn't too flattering regarding his use of ghost writers. That's sort of the rub for me. I'd like to play James Frey's treasure hunt (especially because it sounds pretty cool based on the puzzle maker), but I personally despise giving James Frey any of my financial support. I'll have to borrow a copy from the library I guess. Or maybe all the target audience young adults reading it will be asking for help with the puzzles on the old interweb.

    At this point, I'm hoping the puzzle is not based on exercising the social media (like Twitter) and more about problem solving.

    Engineer, Thanks for links to Matt's puzzles, a few post up from this.

    The info in post # 35 provides links that imply Mat was part of either the 2012 and / or 2013 puzzle.

    Mr. Wiesel missed it. In 2012, he saw an opportunity to both quench his puzzle thirst and, as a board member of Good Shepherd, sponsor a unique charity event.

    Mr. Wiesel enlisted Mr. Laibowitz and Mr. Michaelson, now both 38 and entrepreneurs

    One Saturday evening last fall, some 180 Goldman Sachs employees assembled at a dock along the East River of Manhattan, divided into 20 teams. Standing on a platform overlooking the crowd was Mat Laibowitz, an impresario-mad-scientist-type dressed in a red t-shirt printed with the words Game Master. Laibowitz handed each team captain a white, semi-opaque plastic cube

    I just read a sampler of 'Endgame: The Calling". This is going to be a very involved hunt. The first 6 chapters have 19 links to various places on the internet. Not knowing what is a actual clue we are going to have research every link.
