I like how it's drawn. It's so detailed, OP had to spend a lot of time on it. It's so hard though. I tried but it looks like the words are mixed up so much that it's easy to skip something or choose the wrong one. I give up, good luck to you all.

i would really like to try my luck. but i have to admit that i dont know where the right picture can be found....

is it the blue/grey one? but where can i download a HD-version?
here is the current quest page http://bitcoin-quest.com/the-quest-begins/
you can download the full hi-res image by doing right-click then save link as...
have fun!! start your quest Cheesy

OP responded to this already and gave the link. You're late Tongue

If only I would have seen this sooner! I've spent quite a lot of time on it today, and found several "N1" words that haven't been found yet, but I always end up at a dead end. A very big printer and red pen would help, but all I have is the red pen.
I love hunts like this!

New plan: red and green paint in the image, scroll and zoom, until I've reproduced all existing winners first Cheesy

But i dont have other words yet.
Look again, all prices were now claimed  Undecided
Seems like after the discovered seeds got posted, the others became too easy to connect by crossing out the used words (that has no "x2" mark), especially for the 5x consecutive solo winner, but hiding the words is also to his advantage.

Connecting them is too tricky because the arrows aren't exactly pointing to the direction of next word.

Theoretically, judging from the total number of words, someone can write a software to bruteforce the possible seeds based on the words from the image. 120~ish, that's a very small library compared to BIP39's or even Electrum's Word list.
Just a possibility, never mind.

Ready for the second round!

did anybody try it with "brutforcing"? the first words were know and the last words too. sometimes i really hate that i dont know how to program well enough to do such calculations.

I highly doubt that! Even if you assume you know the first and last words, you're left with approximately 100^10=10^20 possibilities, which will take forever to brute force.
It could have worked if you knew about 10 out of 12 words though.

not totally bruteforce but by narrowing down possible combinations using certain techniques
one I can think of (but didn't manage to do yet) by first finding all word-pair connections and building words tree,
then we can run a program to traverse each possible branches and check the derived address

for example, from some of my notes:
N1-shed rich piano ...
(piano, [velvet, nominee, erosion])
(velvet, [table, where])
(nominee, [erosion, castle*, food])
(table, [hollow])
(hollow, [share, train])
(share, [train, burst, industry])

and so on

then it will produce:
N1-shed rich piano velvet table hollow share train ...
N1-shed rich piano velvet table hollow share burst ...
N1-shed rich piano velvet table hollow share industry ...
N1-shed rich piano velvet table hollow train ...
N1-shed rich piano velvet where ...
N1-shed rich piano nominee erosion ...
N1-shed rich piano nominee castle* invalid, reaches starred word on 5th word
N1-shed rich piano nominee food ...
N1-shed rich piano erosion ...


you get the idea...  Roll Eyes Wink

I have to say that it looks like a complete random mindfuck Cheesy
When I looked at it first, I was certain that the arrows will point towards the next word and it has to be nearby, but it seems that second word can be half a picture from the first one and to get there you have to skip/ignore a bunch of words that are in the way. If you add them together you end up with a very large number of possibilities.  
For instance, the chain that OP showed as found has, for instance, words pizza and advance. Between these two there are at least 3 other words that had to be skipped.
