It just goes to show how you can "over think" a problem and it turns out to be something a little less grand. I was starting to come around to the math symbol angle though.

that was good. i think its incredible because, well when it comes to cyphers like these my brain does not focus well.

awesome stuff good job!

Could you please share how you did this? How did you figure out the original substitution?


I found 2 different techniques to solve this.

For the first one, I simply assigned a different letter to each of the 18 unique symbols which gave me this:

ABCDEFG HIEA GCJMI MLBDENOA PNDPFHPGO RMBF TEFPC QROAHEBF

Then it was just a matter of doing simple letter substitution to get the final answer.

The second and more complex approach was to group the symbols by specific characteristics. Basically, you can create 5 groups of symbols with a distinct characteristic (in this case, it was the orientation) and then assign them letters.

It would be much easier for me to explain this 2nd method with an image but I don't have enough time at the moment to create one.

Agreed... so far, most puzzles have all turned around simple substitution ciphers... except for the dots puzzle which I still can't figure out.

o.k. I see the first example, but is there a reason why you bypassed using the letters "K" & "S" in your substitution cipher?

the problem with these threads is that people post WAAAAY too much useless crap. there are a few good posts, but you have to dig through dozens of garbage posts to find them, which i why i always give up on these things.

Thats what the wiki is for:

tinwiki.org...:whatistheconspiracy

(how do i post a link to the wiki??. It seems to be edited out when i submit the post. Sorry)


To find out what has happened so far without reading 40 pages

This thread can then be used for the random ramblings that somehow help us all find solutions quicker than maybe we would without it.


Something doesn't add up with the latest solution. I guess it must be correct but why does this answer suddenly not have correct english syntax when all the other answers have made use of good English.


Im guess its correct, but just feels wrong....

edit to fix link
grr damn link why wont you work
edit again and again to fix link sorry

The only reason was because I had originally assigned K & S to 2 of the symbols that were unclear (blurred) but then I realized that they were the same as already existing ones so I simply dropped the K & S and assigned those symbols to the other 2 letters.

To Clarify Some Unclear Items...

1) The game starts in earnest on 8/8/2008. A new thread will be posted with details about prizes and rules specifics.

2) There will be 10 cyphered questions. Some of these early cyphers will help, some are practice, and others are for fun.


3) There will be one final cypher to be solved, pieces of which are rewards for solving the 10 questions.

4) This will not take the [answer].html format of previous games.

5) The grand prize is very cool and something any ATS member/reader would want.

Ahh, thanks a bunch, that certainly does make things much clearer.

So if we win the entire game, we get a new president, right? Something everyone would want...

Wow it speaks.


In that case my hats off and gratitude the all peeps who have been bashing their heads to solve and explain the previous puzzles.

88 hours to go!!!!

Peace

No... more like something that will be valuable no matter who is president, and no matter what draconian Internet laws go into effect.

man I just stumbled across this today...saw the "what is the conspiracy" think at the bottom of a page and thought I was ahead of the game...haha...

well either way, I caught up with what's been going on, and looking forward to the game! I missed most of the last one, so I'm glad i stumbled onto this one before it started!

Going back to the dot puzzle, I've numbered the dots that match.

From left to right, these dots are identical.

1, 3
2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 11
7, 14, 17, 20
8, 12, 15, 18
10, 16, 19
13, 21
