    Default Endgame is here.

    New novel coming out next month with a $500,000 treasure hunt. It seems really complicated as it is being made into a movie and some kind of videogame and it's a trilogy of books each book having a bigger prize.

    It would be nice if it was legit tho.

    Anyone heard of Mat Laibowitz? He designed the puzzle.

    Yes, it could be interesting. I would have to wonder how the game was controlled though. Does the book have everything you need to win it, or do you really have to play along with all the pre-integrated movie, video game, social media, etc tie-ins for all the clues? All of that might be fun and the necessary inputs to make it go 'big' with the general reading public. Thanks for sharing the info.

    The first eligible reader to solve the puzzle for the first book and find the key will win $500,000 worth of gold. Frey says the prizes will get bigger with each book.

    According to James Frey at comic-con legally everything to solve the puzzle is in the first book. That does not preclude them from adding additional clues in the movie, novellas, etc.

    The hunt runs for 2 years but they are confident it will be solved before the time limit is up. The gold prize is 2500 gold coins that are currently in a safe in Reno Nevada but will be put on public display at a later date.

    Plus it sounds like it is not a physical key to get the gold he said the word key has many definitions. They said they made the hunt so that if you read the book in your local library and used the libraries computer you could solve the puzzle and win the gold absolutely free.

    Could you provide link for your quote? Or, is that your words based on info you obtained first hand ?

    Thank-you,

    From the video in #2, does it sound like there could be an advantage to using social media, like Twitter?
