    One thing that I'm not sure that people have considered: there is little to no evidence that all 240 chapter questions have to be answered in order to win the first silver eagle.

    All the trivia questions in EACH chapter must be solved for that chapter's map to be opened. You don't have to solve ALL the trivia questions in the book. Many people are doing it on a by chapter basis ( solve the trivia questions, then work on the map).

    Meaner simikkles,

    I think Lobster was referring to the fact that the 240 questions aren't necessary to solve the chapter 1 map, and I'm in agreeement with him. As you've noted, the 20 questions provide the 20 'keys' that are meant to be ordered on the map. One can't get to the map unless one has collected the 20 keys first.

    I understand enough about how the puzzle works to make a couple of educated guesses about the entire set of 240 questions, and it's for the golden eagle puzzle.

    24 0 = X - O

    'C' = Chapter
    'Q' = Question

    However, 'C' is also the abbreviation for COLUMN.
    And 'Q' is also a QUEUE or ROW.

    So, when you have a C5 Q11 for example, you are actually giving grid coordinates for these 240 items. Since the questions consist of both letters and numbers, I'll bet we'll use a 1 - 36 wheel at some point in the golden eagle solution.
