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 Hals Helper below:
You can then work on the puzzle without using pen and paper.
I had a great trip to Florida. Stayed with friends in Sawgrass about 20 miles North of St. Augustine.
Highlight was seeing Carol Burnett Friday night. Really miss her show.
I think these CGs are getting too easy for you people, or else you're just getting better at it.
Here are the answers to the last 3 puzzles:
Friday:It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both. Niccolo Machiavelli
Saturday:Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame. Benjamin Franklin
Sunday:If you haven't got anything nice to say about anybody come sit next to me. Alice Roosevelt Longworth
Today's quotation is from someone we all love.
Made the leap at the author and it was downhill from there.
Glad you had a good time in Florida, nikos. (I always loved Carol Burnett; her Harvey Korman skit with the dentist is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen).
Easiest one ever today. I guessed the first two words and the rest fell into my hands like a ripe fruit. 1 minute, as fast as I could select letters.
Started 7:43am. Finished 7:44am. Good one!
I grew up in Sapulpa Ok. The local paper the Sapulpa Herald always had a crossword puzzle and a cryptogram. My mother and I fought over who got the paper first, thus got to do the quote. I grew up on these things. Love them!
I really liked this one!
