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:
ONE OF THE ADVANTAGES OF BEING DISORDERLY IS THAT ONE IS CONSTANTLY MAKING EXCITING DISCOVERIES. ---A. A. MILNE
I know the feeling.
On a scale of 1-10, about a 5. CHS did if for me. Guess that and rest is obvious.
Hit on the next to last word, and it fell together.
I believe this one might have been the easiest for me...3 minutes.
Actually, not that easy. Youre just getting better at these.
Yes, its BONUS time once again. That laughable time when you get to solve a humorous quote from a classic funny movie, comedian, or entertainer. The trick is, unlike nikos puzzle where you dont want to post spoilers, with the BONUS puzzle its a race for first solution posted, BUT you dont post the solution directly, You post a funny pic ,gif, or meme that shows you solved it. First pic or gif wins the prize with full bragging rights. Honorable mentions for all original pic or gif posts.
Ive got stacks of honorable mention awards laying about, so just because someone solves the quote first doesnt mean you cant contribute to the fun.
Dont get wrapped up in how easy or hard it is. Just solve it and post something funny and share the fun.
Todays puzzle should be, well, you decide. Be creative with your replies 😝
Here it is (with anticipation and drum roll). Ready, set, solve:
AJQI LFN'WQ HJQABIS FI VBOQ'D SWBDYVQ, PFI'Y SWNKEVQ; SBTQ M AJBDYVQ, ... MIP... MVAMLD VFFZ FI YJQ EWBSJY DBPQ FO VBOQ...-VQMP DBISQW HWNHBOQQ
The last word got it for me...3 minutes
Didn’t one or more writers from the Arkansas Gazette valiantly attempt to warn the nation about the corrupt Clintons in 1992?
My phone appears to be bricked this morning.
4 min. got the two one-letter words backwards at first.
Ya should’ve left that to Magnum44. 3 min.
Since 2-4&14 are ‘obvious’ took a little time finding the right combination etc....
Is that (almost) the same as you will never know what you don’t know?
I had a few false starts, but suddenly I figured out the first word and bingo.
Exactly the same for me.
Oh, Magnum44 posts pictoral hints to the puzzles. You beat him to it. :-)
