Smashing Mystery Resolved: New York Pizza, Jules Verne and 28 Hong Kong Street

The New Smashing Mystery Riddle: Have You Figured It Out Yet?


  

Yep, one of those mystery riddles again? To celebrate the launch of SmashingConf NYC, we’ve prepared yet another riddle, and this time it will be a matter of patience and following clues. As usual, we’ve hidden secret keys in a series of animated GIFs.

Below you’ll find the first animated GIF, containing a location clue. To move to the next level, you have to find a hidden hash tag and follow a link in a tweet containing it. Once you’ve reached the last level (you’ll know when), just tweet all of the keys in one single hash tag (or a screenshot if there isn’t enough characters left!) to @smashingmag on Twitter! Not that difficult, right?
