Isis Puzzle Adventurist, Luns Tee solved the Pyramid Challenge riddle for the golden coin. He was presented with the coin at our San Francisco Centre store. He will also receive a $500 prize for solving the riddle successfully. Luns Tee is an electrical engineer for Marvell Semiconductor from Berkeley, California. He first visited Marbles in February and wowed our BrainCoaches by solving the V-Cube 5 and The Brain Cube. So they challenged him to the Isis Adventure. A week later he bought the Isis puzzle and opened it in 2 days. He solved the Copernisis in a week and is currently in the process of solving the Ramisis. When asked why he solves these, Luns says "because the challenge would keep nagging at me if I didn't [and] I'm too stubborn to stop." Congratulations, Luns! It looks like your stubbornnesspaid off. Each puzzle in the Isis series has a game connected to it. When you purchase one of the puzzles, you can register your puzzle online. Once you solve the puzzle, you will find a code inside. You can then purchase a membership to the Adventure series and unlock the game with your puzzle code. The Isis Puzzle's game has a pyramid map that shows different locations around the world where small golden pyramids are hidden (there are some virtual ones as well). Each location has a specific riddle that has to be solved to get the password that opens the pyramid. The pyramid contains a gold coin and entitles you to a cash prize, if you are the first to find and solve it. For the San Francisco pyramid, the clue was: Three times bigger than an IMAX discover the link with the 3.141 isis puzzle and name the Indian inventor. The password was Sequoyah. Inventor of the Isis puzzle series and Managing Director of Sonic Games, Andrew Reeves explains the connection to the riddle and its answer: Albert Pissis was an architect who designed a number of buildings in flamboyant Queen Anne and Eastlake styles. In 1890s he was a major figure in the Neoclassical (Classical Revival) movement, particularly Beaux-Arts, and introduced that style to San Francisco beginning with the Hibernia Bank building in 1892. The dome he designed for the Emporium Department Store, now part of the Westfield San Francisco Centre, is often considered a masterpiece. Pissis died of pneumonia at age 62, in his suite at the St. Francis Hotel. He was survived by his widow, Georgia, who in 1920 sold land to Redwood City, California that became Sequoia High School. After Redwood City had been decided upon as the site for the school, the name Sequoia was chosen as the most fitting to stand for the district as a whole. Sequoia, the name of the great redwood, is named after Sequoyah, the great Cherokee Indian scholar and inventor of the writing system for the Cherokee language.
