The answer to the code wheel, as I'm sure most of you have figured out is: 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 24, 45, '89', '334' At first I believed it was a fibonacci sequence, until It reached 21 and seemed to increase randomly. The key was in Shaun's Hint for the puzzle "look at the ones column and the tens column." After it reaches 21 It is only adding the ones column, adding the 1 (from the 21) and the 4 (from the 24) to get the 5 (from the 45) and so on and so forth. The tens and hundreds columns are there more or less just for show.
The tens columns aren't just for show. Starting with 13 and 21, the ones column is an addition, the tens column is a multiplication. Using the two numbers before the searched one to find the result.
13 & 21 => multiplication of the tens column => 1 * 2 = 2 (*10 since it's the tens column)
13 & 21 => addition of the ones column => 3 + 1 = 4
Result = 20 + 4 = 24
21 & 24 => multiplication of the tens column => 2 * 2 = 4 (*10)
21 & 24 => addition of the ones column => 1 + 4 = 5
Result = 40 + 5 = 45
24 & 45 => multiplication of the tens column => 2 * 4 = 8 (*10)
24 & 45 => addition of the ones column => 4 + 5 = 9
Result = 80 + 9 = 89
45 & 89 => multiplication of the tens column => 4 * 8 = 32 (*10)
45 & 89 => addition of the ones column => 5 + 9 = 14
Result = 320 + 14 = 334
The chess game initially appeared quite difficult, the clue: " +64 squares, all ranks and files, every move anticipated. Every response engineered. Abstergo created it. It's the company's game, there is no way out +H. ACT II, SC. 2 192. Abran los ojos. Tuam Libera Mentem. The King. F2. Your Move." initallay appeared quited daunting as well. Obviously you are supposed to move your king; but to where exactly? The simple translation of the clue is as follows:
"H. ACT II, SC. 2 192" is Act 2, Scene 2 line 192 from Hamlet which reads: "Words, words words"'"ABRAN LOS OJOS." is Spanish for "Open your eyes.""TUAM LIBERA MENTEM." is Latin for "Free your mind."
I'm not sure how the line from Hamlet relates to all of this, but the rest is fairly straightforward. It simply means don't play by the rules anymore. Abstergo owns the board so any move you make on the board they can counter; the solution being to move your king off the board entirely.
I Googled the number series and came up with this thread on Gamespot. Also, the final move in the chess game is to signify that Assassins (white pieces) aren't bound by the rules of Abstergo (black pieces) and sometimes make moves that no-one on either side expects. In this case, I think the king is a metaphor for Desmond, or possibly Ezio. AC3 will most likely give some good context to work with. Ulyenov Project Determination 13:28, November 29, 2010 (UTC)
Fellow Brothers, we are currently outnumbered in our battle against Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty at G4TV. Please send reinforcements through this path []. Once arrived, arm yourselves heavily (sign up/log in) and stand with us in the front line (vote). Vittoria agli Assassini! (Victory to the Assassins!)
The chess game serves to show you/Desmond what he/Subject 16 is trying to get you to understand about how the Templars/Abstergo are working. I'm personally thinking that the chess game is also supposed to link up how things are going in the "real world" as well with Desmond. I agree with User:Ulyenov that the King piece is supposed to be Desmond, but I think its a bit interesting that 16 is telling you to stop playing the game, because Abstergo created it, which makes me wonder about the other white pieces, which I assume are the other Assassins, and what role they're "playing". 220.127.116.11 23:37, November 29, 2010 (UTC)
I thought that the words "Free your mind" and "open your eyes" was the dialouge associated with the POE called "the shroud", Or atleast what I remember from Project Legacy involving "the shroud".

My thoughts on chess board answers. Spanish (Abran los ojos) which means open your eyes (as stated), the Hamlet line (Words, words, words.) and the Latin (Tuam libera mentem, meaning free your mind) all add to everything is lies (from Hamlet quote) and do what you want (from the spanish and latin sentences) which sounds oddly like a important quote in the AC series,
- "Laa shay'a waqui'n moutlaq bale kouloun moumkine." Or, as most should know, Nothing is true, Everything is permitted. This leads to the reasoning of moving the king off the board entirely, it is the only solution even if it is against the "rules." That is all. Firefunbro 00:09, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
