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 todays Cryptogram.
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.
Solution to our last puzzle:
Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers. T. S. Eliot
Yesterday's puzzle was a real challenge, as most short ones are. Today's has an author frequently seen in Cryptograms.
This was a quick one, find the e, find the t and all falls into place.
Yes! You could solve it one line at a time. Words 2 and 3 give you a quick boost and its off to the races....
Could improve my time by using paper or Hal’s helper or anything but prefer the challenge of solving it unaided.
2 minutes. The 2 and 3 letter words led to the name, and from there, woosh!
3 letter conjunction after a comma made it pretty easy.
Please add me to the Cryptogram Ping List. Thank you so much.
Under a minute. I got three words as soon as I saw it and the author of the quote almost simultaneously, then it was done. These sure are fun, except the hard ones!
