The Da Vinci Code - Quest Solution (13 of 24)

The symbol challenge did not increase in difficulty today as suspected. I was able to solve the puzzle with no mistakes. I hope the same was true for you.

Lets see how many differant screenshots we can collect today of solved puzzles. Before you place your last piece into the puzzle take a print screen of your puzzle and post a link to the image in the comments. If you need me to host the image file, just send it to me in an email davincicodequest@gmail.com. Here is mine.



My question was, "Translate aringhe from Italian to English." The answer was herrings.

I finished 2nd today after David. Congrats David, and send me a link if you want me to include one in this post. Look forward to seeing you all again for tomorrow's challenge. What are we all going to do when we don't have these puzzles to put together everyday?

-----

Today we will complete the 13th challenge, the 3rd symbol challenge, and the 1st challenge in the 3rd level of difficulty. I am still challenging everyone to see who can come up with the answer the quickest today. For the Grand Prize of today's competition, I will add a link to your website (or a website of your choosing) in my post. I know that is a weak Grand Prize but hey it is just for fun anyways right.

Also, I have a bonus question to answer. What do the numbers that are in bold (above) have in common? (Hint: related to the Da Vinci Code).

Good Luck Everyone!

Wekk I thought it was hard too few symbols to start with and it took a small 'leap of faith' to get it! However my code to translate was uomo - which is man!

By the way isn't your numbers the fibonnaci sequence?

Good fun though! Oh 18 minutes - I am distraught!

My puzzle was a little harder than last weeks version, not more pieces, but the set up was a bit harder so at one point I had two full columns and nothing else. It took me 2 minutes to solve the puzzle. I had to translate sang from french into english. Answer: blood. It took about 2 and a half minutes from when I hit "play" to when it told me my progress had been saved.
