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:
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change. Stephen Hawking
This was a great puzzle for many of you, who recognized the it in the second position, followed by the. That instantly gave you 5 letters, and it was off to the races.
WE have a hard one today, Folks....
almost 5 mins
slow for me
WOW! Toughy for me. Took 20 minutes!
Okay, that took me 6 or 7 minutes. I started with the 3 letter word that had 2 of the same letters as one of the 2 letter words. It was slow going, but that’s a good quote. Especially for me right now, as I contemplate my job situation. Do I stay or do I go now...
Thanks for taking the time to post these Nikos. Also, so glad you had a nice vacation!
Smooth sailing after that.
Hmmm. That’s a tough question...
Finally solved. You were right Nikos that was a tough one! Keep ‘em coming . . . Smile!
