Our good friends at Google run a daily puzzle challenge and asked us to help get them out to the geeky masses. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. Each morning at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here.

As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS!

Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience.

And now, without further ado, we give you…


You bought a wedding gift at the world’s largest shopping mall and you’re heading to the ceremony nearby. What color do you expect the bride to wear?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

Search [Queen Matilda’s Tapestry] to find it’s another name for the Bayeux Tapestry, which shows the Battle of Hastings. Search [Bayeux Tapestry] to find it is located in Bayeux, France. Use Google Maps for driving directions from Bayeux to Hastings, U.K., and find the distance is 242 miles. Search [242 miles in leagues] to find the distance is about 70 leagues.
