2022 BM Puzzle Piece

“What is it we are questing for? It is the fulfillment of that which is potential in each of us. Questing for it is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfillment your gift to the world, which is yourself. There is nothing you can do that’s more important than being fulfilled. You become a sign, you become a signal, transparent to transcendence; in this way you will find, live, become a realization of your own personal myth.”
― Joseph Campbell

317 Burning Man Puzzle Pendant Pieces are completed.

2013 BM Puzzle Pendants!

This is my second time fabricating a Burning Man Puzzle Pendant. The first was in 2013, and only two people completed the quests: Some 350 pendants were handed out with a note for the first riddle.

This pendant will be required to solve five of the seven quests. The first two quests put you on the path to securing a puzzle pendant. This quest of journeys will take 4 to 5 days to complete. If the quest below is not solved by Tuesday morning of Burn week, your out!

For those that complete the quests, the first will receive a 22K gold plated puzzle piece, the 20 runner-ups, silver plated and chrome plated.

Here is the first quest:
“If the bell rings loud, a virgin no more. But for you, the awaking is near. So look and leave your eMotional package Behind. When you do, a clue of blUe may be found!”

Some hints:
Break down the clues. What are the verbs telling you? Treat each clue like a road map.
Clues and riddles contain bits and pieces of other indications.
One clue does involve trekking through deep playa at night.
Quests take you all over Burning Man City and beyond. You will be exposed to culture, music, art and science.
Bring a notepad & pencil OR your cell phone or a camera.
Seek out a former Boy Scout or someone in the military.
Sometimes the answer has always been with you!
I am reaching out to the BM radio station to broadcast daily hints – not confirmed yet!

A Facebook page has been set up to share information about the puzzle pendant.

Please don’t cheat. We will have cheat safety measures in place.
After 1000 HRS (10AM) on August 30, no more pendant pieces shall be handed out.
Bring your cell phone with you on the quests.
You may team up, but be careful; sometimes, things go upside down.
1500 HRS (3PM) on September 3, the game ends.
Be safe and have fun!

Good luck!
