You can find this little fun word game, to combat early dementia and senility in us baby boomers, in several daily publications.
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 as puzzle solvers love to hear how you made out.
You can certainly send your solution to my private reply, or if you need a hint for todays Cryptogram.
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.
THE IN THING NOW IS TO SCROLL DOWN TO MAGNUM44S HELPFUL HINT BEFORE YOU SOLVE THE PUZZLE.
Solution to our last puzzle:
THE REAL TEST OF GOLF AND IN LIFE IS NOT STAYING OUT OF THE ROUGH, BUT GETTING OUT AFTER WE ARE IN . ---SOURCE OBSCURE
About 2 and 1/2 min. Got the SGHS word, which led to getting the author. The remaining words were not much of a pooh pooh.
Oh bother it I got this one quickly.
Got it just about as quickly as I could move the mouse. Good clue.
2 min. 1st three words by inspection, off to the races.
SGHS was my way in too.
I thought I had lost the plot, but then I found it to my pleasant surprise.
Author, then one word at a time.
On a difficulty scale of 1-10 about a 2. The author fairly shouts his name.
These Cryptograms remind me of the misspellings I and others here have made : )
