It seems like the creators of End Game have changed the rules around for the third book.
For a quick catch up, the End Game novels follows twelve players descended from ancient blood lines who need to find three special keys to save the world. Inside the novels, there’s puzzles which
lead to an online treasure hunt.
In book two, Sky Key – players needed to discover the starting point of the game. A few pages in, an image of a notepad with a scrambled website address had to be decoded.
No hints were given to decode the image either – creating a stumbling block for all players.
Now with the release of the new End Game novel, Rules of the Game – the first image inside shows clearly where to start:
From there, turn the wheel to register and start work on the first puzzle – which appears to accept a code word or phrase.
Here’s what else you might want to know:
When did it start?
January 9th 2017
What are the prizes?
The Grand Prize is $250, 000 USD in cash to be given to the first person to solve all the puzzles in the third novel, Rules of the Game.
In addition, the first twelve people to solve all puzzles will get an End Game book set – featuring all the books and novellas signed by the author.
When does the competition end?
Whichever comes first: July 10th, 2017 or when all puzzles have been solved and a winner of the Grand Prize is declared.
Did anyone win the $100,000 USD Sky Key prize (from Book 2)?
No – if the prize from book two, Sky Key was won by a player there would be press and media about it.
Help! Are there any hints?
Keep an eye on this page, to see if a Hints section is made available after a while. When checking the same section of the website for Sky Key, there’s a Hint section available – indicating which puzzles are relevant to each online stage of the puzzle hunt.
