Day 19 - Symbol Challenge 4

The Da Vinci Code Quest on Google Walkthrough Answers and Hints





Day 19 - Symbol Challenge 4


This is the fourth Symbol challenge and this time it is a 6 X 6 grid with 6 distinct regions. Mine seemed particularly difficult this round and I think it was because there were only 6 symbols placed at the beginning. If you have experience doing Sudoku puzzles, then you should be able to complete this puzzle in due time.

If you do not have experience with this type of puzzle, I can offer few hints other than what has been posted in previous Symbol challenge posts. If anyone can offer some assistance, please leave a comment.



After solving the puzzle, the following question was posed to me:

In The Italian Renaissance in England, author Lewis Einstein discusses Florentine Bankers and the Wars of which King?

A - Edward


It is likely that different questions will be asked requiring the use of Google Book Search. Do a search for the title of the book and the text in bold to find your correct answer. Leave a comment revealing the question and answer you were asked.

Day 20

This is a fairly straight forward challenge again. There is more complexity as there are now 15 splotches on the piece of art. If worse comes to worse, simply click until all of the spots merge into one. Start from the outside and work your way in as it is possible to not solve this puzzle (it was always possible to solve in the first phase of this challenge). You can only merge debris that is separated by one space.

Image is here...

After solving the puzzle, the following question was asked to me:

What words divided by tons appear in The Numismatic Chronicle?

The answer was:

HOC OPVS DEI ( hoc opvs dei )

I had the question

"According to William Dean Howells' Italian Journeys, this language is de rigueur in all the shops on the Corso."

However, Google books is utterly useless when inserting the bolded phrase "in all the shops on the Corso". It returns no language at all. So much for the handy hints.
