Hmm, well it turns out I can be pretty obsessive. I just spent my entire lunch hour playing the new interactive game called Symbol Quest on DanBrown.com. At first I was trying to win without Googling anything, but I soon realized that I was being soundly defeated even with Google and Wikipedia open. Ugh. Some of them are intuitive enough: “Age in the Hair of Broadway.” But then there’s stuff like “Casanova, Mozart, and Houdini had this in common,” to which I still don’t know the answer; I just guessed right.  (If you know, COMMENT!)

Then after an hour of window-hopping, I finally get to the end and it gives me this message:

“CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE REACHED THE 33RD DEGREE WITH ONLY 2 ERRORS. PLEASE NOTE: THOSE WHO ASCEND PERFECTLY (WITH NO ERRORS) WILL BE REWARDED WITH SECRET KNOWLEDGE.”

I don’t get the secret knowledge!???!!! You know what, Game? I don’t like your tone. Demanding perfection, psh. Who do you think I am? A librarian? I’m in a cubicle here. I don’t have the resources. I quit.

I wish all of you better luck. You may just emerge a more knowledgable person for it, even if you’re a little embittered.

  • Hi, I found your site while I was searching the same “Casanova, Mozart, and Houdini had this in common,”
    I totally guessed it. It’s the symbol with a letter G in it.
    Greetings!

  • They were all Masons.

  • Err… i tried not to google but yeah, i totally guessed some of them symbols. Most are pretty easy but I still dun get what the ‘G’ symbol means and what those 3 dudes have in common. *shrug* Nonetheless, me had fun!

    Me rikey your blog!

  • U get to hear a stupid message from Dan brown saying congragulations on a perfect scor…LAME I KNOW!

  • To David’s comment…the secret knowledge is Dan Brown telling you that there are more hidden symbols on the jacket of the book. Enjoy!

  • The G symbol is one of the most used symobls in the francmason, it is usually follow by a square at the bottom of the letter and a Compass above the G.
