Cryptograms
 
Created by Tuke

In this Post and Solve, the host posts a cryptogram and players try to decipher it. Cryptograms are puzzles with a simple substituon code (such as a=z,b=y,etc.) The cryptos are usually well known sayings or quotes, or a list of words that belong to a similar category. (Solving hint: Having trouble? Look for single letters and two-letter words. These usually are A or I and the 2 letters are usually to, us, be, an, of.) The first player to solve the puzzle either by posting the complete phrase or by giving the code for the last letter wins the next turn.

To help you make a cryptogram and edit the guesses into a recap, you can use this tool.

All the usual P&S guidelines apply. These Tips and Resources can help you to create a new puzzle. If you have questions regarding hosting and posting, check out the FAQ. Have fun!

Leaving chocolate cookies in hopes that the smell will lure players to come

Ok, chocolate cookies obviously don't work, so maybe coffee will wake you up and make you post a guess?

I'm moving to a new place this weekend and will be without internet access for some time. I'm not sure if I'll be able to log on tomorrow or Friday so to keep the game going... WT was the one to solve last, so you can take it if you want, otherwise it's up for grabs.

Convo: 'the overly complicated, long way 'round to describing the overly complicated, long way 'round"

Maybe a new puzzle will bring back the masses?

Education is a wonderful thing, provided you always remember that nothing worth knowing can ever be taught.

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

I declare this solved. You're up, Convo!
