THREE DAYS OF CRYPTOGRAMS!!!

Dear Friends. I’m hoping to take a few days of vacation in St. Augustine, FL this weekend, returning in the late afternoon on Sunday. I’m therefore posting the CG for next three days, and I’ll give you the CG answers on Sunday when I return.

Today’s Cryptogram

HP HF QUPPUB PA QU LUYBUT

PZYC RAEUT HL WAD VYCCAP

QU QAPZ. CHVVARA JYVZHYEURRH

Saturday’s Cryptogram

OZISUKUX CR TUPVD CD

IDPUX UDJR CD RZIEU. TUDYIECD HXIDNFCD

Sunday’s Cryptogram

HV GPC EYNQI'Z LPZ YIGZEHIL

IHRQ ZP UYG YWPCZ YIGWPJG

RPAQ UHZ IQKZ ZP AQ. YOHRQ FPPUQNQOZ OPILMPFZE

You can find this little fun word game, to combat early dementia and senility in us baby boomers, in several daily publications, unfortunately they are copyrighted so we can't use them here. So, we're just going to make up our own.

The way it works is a letter stands for another letter.

For example: AXYDLBAAXR is LONGFELLOW (does not apply to today's cryptogram).

Beware, the game is very addictive. If this is your first time, don't be intimidated.

PLEASE DO NOT post the answer in general comments, but DO post your time and any tips you might give the group on how you solve these puzzles. Puzzle solvers love to hear if you found the CG challenging or easy.

You can certainly send your solution to my private reply, or if you need a hint for today’s Cryptogram.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Hobbies; Miscellaneous; Music/Entertainment
KEYWORDS: todayscryptogram
If you're just starting out on these, be patient, as you'll be proficient in no time.

Solving the puzzle under 8 minutes is good, under 6 very good, under 4 excellent and under two "you're a pro!"

Those of you looking for an added challenge can try to solve one sentence or even one word at a time, i.e. solve the entire first line, then go to the second line etc.

If you need a little help you can copy the cryptogram and paste it to Hal’s Helper below:

You can then work on the puzzle without using pen and paper.

Okay, I’m getting good because that first one, I read the first line as is, even though I didn’t know what quote it would be. The pattern of the first five letters was just recognizable to me. So it was about 60 seconds. I’ll save the other two for the weekend. Have a good trip!!

Three days, huh? I was reading the first one as I transcribed it. “Here’s your methadone for the next month...try to stretch it out.” :)

Happy trails.
