The Da Vinci Code Quest on Google

Nothing to do? Why not give your brain a little exercise.

The Da Vinci Code Quest on Google was created by a team of Google engineers, including Wei-Hua Huang, a 4-time World Puzzle Championship Individual Winner, in cooperation with Sony Pictures, before the release of the movie The Da Vinci Code, starring Tom Hanks, in May 2006. They managed to create a whopping 12358 puzzles to be solved. And if you are a resident of the US (or UK?), and you managed to get to the Final Challenge and become the winner, there will be a prize!

Too bad there's no prize for the others around the world. We don't even have a proper selection menu to proceed in the main page. (Only US, UK or AU for country selection). I clicked on UK just to play the puzzle.

Being a puzzle lover junkie, I find myself sitting in front of the computer, trying to get to the next level. Arghh...there goes my project deadline! Most hints and clues can be found in The Da Vinci Code movie site.

So, can you crack the code?
