Day 1: Samson and Delilah Digital Scavenger Hunt

On Monday, February 11, at 10 am, we started our first Samson and Delilah Digital Scavenger Hunt. The two winners, who were the first to follow all the clues and ended up with a codeword and email address to sent it to, received a poster of R.Black's Samson and Delilah. The clever Vanessa Zurita finished the hunt first - in just 37 minutes. Congratulations! Our second winner is Greg Argendeli who sent his winning email shortly after Vanessa at 10:44 am.

Here is how they did it:

At 10 am, we posted the following hint on our Facebook timeline.

It was a picture of our 'aria serious?'-blog that included two words in the search field: '10 questions'. In combination with the capital word in the Facebook post 'FIRST', it told the searcher to go to our 'aria serious?'-blog, search for '10 questions' and click on the first answer.

The interview with our Delilah included one extra line at the bottom of the text:

Read backwards it says: Check out our Pinterest folder named Samson and Delilah.

The Pinterest folder included a picture of Camille Saint-Saëns. 

Strangely, it was not uploaded by the user like all the other pictures. It was linked to Youtube, a video platform, instead. To be more specific, our Youtube Channel and Dr. Nicolas Reveles' Kids Vidz for Samson and Delilah:

The video included the following comment and hint:

It advised the searcher to go to the English synopsis of Samson and Delilah at

The text included a number of bold letters that spelled:


The next step was to go to San Diego Opera's Facebook Page and find the jigsaw puzzle of Samson and Delilah from December 14, 2012.

The post included additional lines:

'You are nearly done. Follow the link, solve the jigsaw puzzle and send the included codeword to to claim your prize!'.

The jigsaw puzzle included the 5 letters 'DAGON' which was the codeword.

And that was it!

Come back on Wednesday, February 13, 2013, at 10 am to participate in another awesome scavenger hunt for a R. Black Samson and Delilah poster.
