The countdown ends at 10:33 am, in every time zone.

10:33 must be part of the puzzle.

And the title Cicada3301..3301:1033

Okay, thanks.
It says 10 hours for me.

Oh and just a side note - they pick the first person who cracks their codes. If I remember correctly, they have chosen three(?) over the past years.



10hrs and 20 min for me....hmm is that some kind of code in the shape of a moth or butterfly

Well, I am no use with code, but the code appears to be laid out in order to resemble a moth.

No idea why, but perhaps someone else might have an idea?

I don't think they live in UK, but if you have ever been to a warmer country, they are the insects that sing, like at dusk, sound like they are chirping.

Panic spreads throughout Europe that the end of the universe may be near,[citation needed] on the supposed 1,000th anniversary of the crucifixion of Christ, due to some unusually harsh spring weather. The Book of Revelation predicts the end of the earth after a 1000 year period.

Ah.

Well, I had better pay attention next time eh?


Ignore me everyone... obviously my head is not anywhere near being in the game. I think it has probably forgotten the address details and rough geographical location of the game for that matter!

If you go back to the wiki page you can hear the sound they make on the right hand side. They are very distinctive.

Awesome, I've heard about the previous ones.

There's another site that uses similar cryptic messages and coding.

If you're good with code, etc. I recommend trying it out; it's essentially one giants riddle.

So what is with the number 7?

You said that the puzzle begins at 10:33 for everyone. 1 + 0 + 3 + 3 = 7.

Cicada3301. Again, 3+3+0+1 = 7

Then the ASCII art is made of all 7s. Weird
