Encrypta Gifts has announced a special discount on its Encrypta cryptex for all participants in Phase 1 of "The Da Vinci Code Quest" on Google which ended today (official rules available at http://tinyurl.com/r42st).
To qualify for the Final Phase of the contest, participants in the Quest needed to be one of the first 10,000 to complete a series of 24 daily, skill based puzzles. Quest finalists will receive the Final Puzzle Challenge and a replica of the cryptex used in "The Da Vinci Code" movie (cryptex image available at http://tinyurl.com/lcmzp - bottom of page) by May 18th.
Allen Oelschlaeger, one of the founders of Encrypta Gifts, successfully completed Phase 1 of the Quest and is, therefore, familiar with the difficulty of correctly answering all 24 puzzles. He said, "Completing the Quest was such a challenge we decided to do something special for all the participants. We wanted everyone to have the opportunity to own a cryptex, not just the first 10,000 who completed the contest."
Quest participants can learn how to verify their participation and get a 40% discount on an original Encrypta cryptex by going to http://www.EncryptaGifts.com/quest.
da Vinci is believed to have invented the cryptex as an instrument for delivering private messages. Such "keep-safe" devices required knowledge of a secret code to gain access to a hidden chamber inside. When someone purchases an Encrypta cryptex, they select a 7-character secret code, which is custom laser-etched into the cryptex's rotating wood tumblers. To get access to the inner cavity, the tumblers must be aligned in the correct sequence matching the secret code.
