In the e-mail confirming the finalists, a recommendation is made to prepare carefully. On the Da Vinci Code site (www.sodarktheconofman.com) you'll find an anagram game with several very difficult anagrams (and a few fairly easy ones). They all have to do with parts of the book, and searching on Google isn't going to help much.

I've done all the anagrams a few times now over the last hour. I'd recommend you do the same -- something tells me that in addition to chess and another sudoku, we're going to have to solve an anagram. And it probably won't be "So dark the con of man" or "O draconian devil! Oh lame saint!" (both of which got used in the original puzzles for Phase 1).

You may also be wise to do the Sudoku on that site as well, as that one gives you timings for each puzzle you solve. I generally ranged between 23 and 47 seconds, depending on how many pre-placed symbols I was given. I grant you, those Sudoku are a lot easier since they're all 4 x 4 with regular 2 x 2 sub-regions, but it's still good to practice and get used to finding the answers fast.

Of course, if you don't care about the grand prize, feel free to ignore all of these suggestions. ;-)
