The Da Vinci Code - Quest Solution (5 of 24)

I correctly assessed yesterday, that today's challenge would be more interesting than the previous 4 because the chess challenge actually requires mental effort. To complete this task you need to understand the game of chess (something all human beings should learn and enjoy before they leave this blessed or cursed as it may be planet). Or you have to know how to use an internet search engine, which admittedly only requires half a mental effort.

I decided to solve the puzzle by playing the game rather than researching the storyline. I love the game of chess, thanks Dad for teaching me early in life, and so it was a natural choice, but you may wish to play the game since the only official hint given in this quest was to do just that. If you need assistance with any of the challenges, or if you have questions about any of Google's products, services, or API's, you may leave your email in a comment and I will be happy to assist you.

Oh right, you wanted the answers to those questions so you don't have to play chess. Since you can't be persuaded otherwise, here they are.

"What is the spiked belt that Silas wears called?" A cilice

"What are the second, third, and fourth leading members of the Priory of Sion called?" Senechaux

"The engraved tablet that is supposed to reveal the hiding place of the Holy Grail is called the" Keystone

I was actually disappointed that it actually wouldn't LET you just play chess to solve the puzzle, you had to choose answers in order to move the pieces.

You are correct, everyone worth a grain of mental salt should either already know or learn post haste how to play the game of chess.

Agreed. I am fairly certian these puzzles will stay simple for most of the way through in order to keep the general public interested.

I'm glad there was answers since i know nothing about chess. I find it odd you would be so willing to give away all the answers.

I'm actually only giving out partial solutions since the puzzles vary. I don't see any reason not to publish the answers for my puzzles. In reality, the information I am posting is freely available on the Internet already, I am just making it more easily accessible... right?
