Thought it would be nice to collect these in one spot. We have a lot of jigsaw pieces to work with.

1. Jan 3: 12:00 high was just a little bit late.
2. Jan 6: The ghost of Cooper past holds your omega key.
3. Jan 10: Look before the jeep
4. Jan 13: At least 20 people have the first half correct
5. Jan 17: Click on the golden eagle's eye for the next clue
6. Jan 20: Only use letters from the story
7. Jan 24: Chapter 1 Extra Clue: A = omega
8. Jan 27: Go back to the Golden Eagle Eye for your next clue
9. Jan 31: The sequence begins by encrypting what is before UXXXXXX
10. Feb 3: The sixth number in the sequence is the second number used to open the compartment in National Treasure: Book of Secrets
11. Feb 7: If you've reached the starting line you've already gone too far
12. Feb 10: {missing}
13. Feb 13: The omega key starts before "what you know"
14. Feb 17: To find your sequence think of a cipher backwards for it is not the words you seek but the letters.

We have lots to work with.

2. Thank you for getting these together, Doc.

There's a lot of meat on the latest clue's bones, and I'm going to spend some time this weekend re-evaluating everything I've done.

To find your way on the map keep in mind that the first.....is equal to the last.

'The first keys for chapter 1 treasure map are 1, 20, 5, 14.'

'The sixth number in the sequence is the second number used to open the compartment in National Treasure Book of Secrets'. If I said that the map solution was broken down into six parts, might the sixth number in that particular fashion be the ATE?

I'm gonna think on this some more.

Doc, I've looked at that one too.. (excuse the format which doesn't work well in a browser. Try text editor). I don't see how it works unless I've overlooked something important..

6. Is it weird that the Feb 17th clue is only encoded using a Caesar shift +1? It's not like anyone is wasting any brain cells figuring that out... just copy and paste into your favorite cipher solver and press solve. I actually went back and worked it by hand just to make sure there wasn't a key word used that might turn out to be helpful. Of course I didn't find anything (cause it is too easy) but maybe we should add to this list of clues by noting which cipher and method was used to encode each of the clues.

I do not see where is your concern

Plainty of clues are straightforward ... as majority of the 240 questions were too .... certainly you are someone who is trying to look and seek behind everything, even when there is nothing to look or seek for.

I've been going over some of the Facebook clues, and I had a different take on an earlier one I wanted to pass along.

At least 20 people have the first half correct.

I don't think that's a literal clue. Like so many other things it's a clue in three parts, and to solve it, we take each part's opposite.

20---First Half---Correct
1---Second Half---X (wrong)

In light of yesterday's clue, I think this one might be stating something along the same lines:

20 - 1....First half/Second half....Correct....X (The end)

I agree. "At least" could mean many things. "First half" could mean many things. "People" could mean many things. "Correct" could mean many things.

I suspect those out there who think the first 10 keys are explained by this clue will end up disappointed.
