Enter: 'The Da Vinci Code Quest'

93727__davinci_lI was kind of hoping the immersive online game associated with The Da Vinci Code (pictured) would be called something like "Da Da Vinci Code" in an embarrassing attempt to pander to the youth market. But I suppose I’ll have to content myself with the milder absurdity of "The Da Vinci Code Quest," a wonderfully excessive, near-redundant title. I’d have preferred "A Tribe Called The Da Vinci Code Quest," but that’s neither here nor there.

Do we have any veterans of "The Beast" here? The Beast was the nickname given by fans and sufferers of A.I.‘s sprawling alternate-reality game, which slopped over the sides of the Web and into people’s telephones — carefully stage-managed conference calls and fake voice mailboxes were all part of the show. But "TDCQ" seems to be a more modest proposition, offering 24 puzzles in 24 days and prizes for those who solve them all. So never fear, it’s not quite so reality-consuming, and you won’t be getting any creepy, cryptic calls from Will Shortz in the middle of the night. Unless, like me, you already do.

    Audrey Tatou looks like Kathryn Erbe in that picture. Did anyone else see her on TV this weekend in What about Bob!? Freaky!

    I was a Cloudmaker. In fact, the Cloudmakers were 5 years old last week.

    Tom Hanks new hair do is a huge dont! As far as the game I got better things to do with my time.

    Another Cloudmaker! Hail and well-met. I still have Adrian Hon’s guide printed out in a binder. I read it occasionally. It’s still good stuff.
