For general rules on participating in games on ATS, and collecting prizes, please visit: AboveTopSecret.com Game and Event Rules



WhatIsTheConspiracy.com Prizes

-1- Eleven custom, limited edition high-quality T-shirts, designed exclusively for winners of the game. The player solving each of the ten questions, as well as the final question, will receive a T-Shirt. These are a high-quality heavy 50/50 black cotton shirt with screen print ink rated for "hundreds of washes," and personally approved by SkepticOverlord, on-press, before allowed to be sent out as prizes. Estimated retail value, $24.95 USD.


-2- Five editions of Above Top Secret by the New York Times best-selling author, Jim Marrs. Fulfillment of the books will occur soon after availability, scheduled for October of 2008. Players solving four of the more difficult questions, and the final question, will receive a copy. Estimated retail value, $19.95 USD.


-3- GRAND PRIZE: A 4 gigabyte Iron Key, the ultimate in secure USB thumb-drive storage, and secure web-browsing. The perfect device for whistle-blowers on the go who need to store their damaging government documents so they can upload them to ATS in perfect anonymity from any public computer. Estimated retail value, $149.00 USD. (This high-technology, exceptionally secure device has some shipping restrictions to certain countries, may not be available to all global game players.)




Rules And Information Specific To WhatIsTheConspiracy.com

-1- All game-specific activity, including the delivery of any clues, hints, or other game-play information will appear on www.whatistheconspiracy.com. No hints, tips, or other information after August 8th, 2008 appearing on any other domain that mentions the domain name should not be considered official information from AboveTopSecret.com.

-2- Ten cryptographically encoded questions will be sequentially delivered. In the event a player does not solve the question within twelve days after the cryptogram first appears on www.whatistheconspiracy.com, one hint designed to help solve the cryptogram will be provided. In the event a hint is provided and the "Above Top Secret" book by Jim Marrs is part of the question's prize package, the book prize will be forfeit.

-3- Successful solutions for the ten questions will deliver pieces of a final eleventh cryptogram. The grand prize package relies on a successful solution of the cryptogram.

-4- Each successful solution will prompt the game player for a valid name and email address. Please ensure you enter your email address correctly as it is the only method of authentication. Unauthenticated prizes will not be circulated back into the game.

-5- Players solving multiple questions are only eligible for one prize during the tenure of this game, however, multiple winners may "gift" their subsequent prize(s) to other players of their choice..



General Guidelines For WhatIsTheConspiracy.com

Please create new threads in the ATS Sponsored Games & Events forum for each new cryptogram. Admin will update this announcement post with links to new threads as they appear.

This is intended as a collaborative and enjoyable game in the spirit of all past Games on ATS, as seen in item five above. Please keep discussions in the game threads civil and cooperative.

At the end of the game, up to five T-Shirts may be awarded as discretionary prizes by ATS Admin for participants who have shown exemplary collaborative spirit, but have not entered correct solutions into the game system.

Any required updates to the game specifics will be applied to this thread. Those who are playing are advised to keep track of any new postings here.


Good luck, and have fun.

It's nice to see the prizes, to bad I [most likely] won't win one. I know it's not the attitude to have, but I'm very new to this cryptogram stuff.


About 12 more hours left.

I think a good idea would to be to identify what kind of system this string of characters could represent

10a6 78cd 66e1 901d e007 556a 111b c0c7 59bf cdaf 1a1e

Hex? Turn to binary, then to Ascii then to text? Or skip the binary conversion?

I dunno, what other options are there?

I hope it does not get much tougher than that or else I am buggered.

Are the numbers and letters at the bottom a warm up exercise or am I doing my head for no reason?

There's been some discussion of this puzzle on the soon-to-be-closed game speculation thread starting at p. 49 (which is where I've linked to). The first 48 pages might be worth skimming too


And there's a TinWiki.org page for the game at tinwiki.org/wiki/Whatistheconspiracy too

Ihave absolutely no idea about this stuff, but playing around with Unicode Imanaged to get


Ⴆ 磍 曡 逝  啪 ᄛ 샇 妿 춯 ᨞ 

Does this do anything for anybody?
Ihope it translates OK into the post

Hey all...

I STRONGLY suggest you listen to the latest ATS MIX Show as the SkepticOverlord goes into a lot of detail and perhaps even shares a hint or two about the game itself.

ATS.MIX: Dr. Michio Kaku (pt-2), Show-92

And good luck to all...!

Johnny
