Da Vinci Code Google Quest: The Final day

What started 23 days ago is about to enter the final phase tomorrow. Today I completed the 23rd put of the 24 puzzles that were uploaded every morning. Tomorrow, the first 10,000 people that will correctly solve the final puzzle first will continue to the final phase.

Interestingly enough, the final puzzle will be video-related. That means you'll have to watch a 45sec clip and answer 3 questions regarding it. Now, there are good news and bad news about it.

The bad news is that it takes time to wacth the video; depending on the questions, you'll have to go back and watch it again and look for clues to the answers.

The good news is that the video is already uploaded on google video...! Me and Erdem watched it together many times, I wrote down the dialogue in a printed piece of paper and he made a short list with items that can possible be asked for. In this way we want to be ready for the questions tomorrow.

When all 24 puzzles are completed, there are 2 forms that have to be submitted with the addresses and names so that one can proceed to the final phase. Only when these forms are submitted does the clock stops and records the time that everyone else will be ranked upon.

If all goes well, I'll be blogging here at 10:01am tomorrow morning...
