    Lightbulb The Astana Challenge

    Still looking into this one, but it seems like the basic "hey buy this book and you can solve the riddles to win a prize." Looks promising, although part of the prize involves a trip originating from Amsterdam and going to Astana - so if anyone not in Amsterdam won, they'd have to fly there, first, to fly to Astana. XD

    I had the great opportunity to interview Frank Albo- creator of the Astana Challenge and armchair treasure hunt. Beautiful city filled with mystery and other marvels. Read More here:

    Default Expensive

    Cliff Johnson made the hunt in the Asta book, and he’s the same one who made the hunt in David Blaine’s Mysterous Stranger book. He’s really good at puzzle making.

    I was able to check Mysterious Stranger out from the library to work on the puzzle, but not such luck with Albo’s Astana book. It’s insanely expensive too, at least by my standards (I am poor and I seldom pay more than a couple dollars for a book).

    I’d love to have an ebook copy of it if anyone happens to have it. Legally of course. Totally legally. Of course.

    Otherwise, I’ll have to just miss out on this one.
