From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
The first half of this chapter involves Wade playing a game in which he has to act out the entire movie WarGames.
Re-enacting Matthew Broderick's role to a T, including all the action and dialogue, nets Wade a clue to the Jade Key. "The captain conceals the Jade Key / in a dwelling long neglected / But you can only blow the whistle / once the trophies are all collected" (11.42).
Parzival races back to Ludus, and Wade logs out of OASIS at 6:17 a.m.
