I feel ya. Seems like I've run through so many types of encryption I'm starting to lose track of what goes with what. The numbers are frustrating the hell out of me, as well as figuring out the relationship to the grids. I burned my brain out the other night. I think I'll have to wait a day or so and then start anew.

Well now there's another clue. Maybe I was wrong after all.

Here's the clue:

843 62637 63 736753 263 34537 273 668 467678268 86 968 669

Well, isn't that peachy. I'm sure this will involve taking every third letter of the keyboard, reversing it, reading it backwards, shift it every for every character and convert from hex.

It's a telephone-dial, or txt-message based code, where each number is replaced by one of the three (or four) letters associated with it on a phone:



the names of people and files are not important to you now
843 62637 63 736753 263 34537 273 668 467678268 86 968 669


Which tells us what not to look at, anyway

I hope so. It could also be "the oboes ..."

Ha!


I really didn't think it would be anything personal, anyway (the staff seems classier than that), but the letters did fit...

Of course, so does the phrase "three ladybugs" (with a cipher change between the words). But that didn't seem as interesting...

(Been busy with work the last few days; haven't had as much free/non-tired time as I would like, to spend on this puzzle)

That second clue/statement has depressed me even more, lol. I like how they say now, instead of never, meaning at some point they probably will be important.

Awesome Job as usual ADB. Before you solved it I was perusing the old Find the Rings Game threads to see if I could find a similar code. FTR Puzzle Site

I can't believe this is still available as this game is 4 years old.

But just in case it helps, member PurdueNuc from the old Rings game still has his site up documenting all the clues and how they were solved.

Check out the unsolved puzzle "Code in ALT tag of image on FindTheRings.com" ADB and see if you can solve the unsolved.

If anything else, its a great walk down memory lane and you can see some similarities between puzzles.

Thanks


And thanks for posting the old puzzles - you never know where we might find inspiration. I took a look and nothing jumped out at me, but I'll keep it in mind.

Also, I don't think we ever solved the last of the pre-game puzzles. Maybe that has some helpful info.

ODAH
PEFG
QRST


I got this: LAL SAL ITI IE I THAT STH ET R UTH

that last half seems obvious: THATS THE TRUTH
I couldn't figure out the first part.
I thought it might be LOL LAST TIME THATS THE TRUTH

I entered that and it didn't work lol.


I can't help to think you're on to something. I ran the letters through an anagram solver and came up with "I IS IT ALL A LIE THATS THE TRUTH". I'm not sure what to make of the extra I. I tried entering it both with and without it but neither worked.

This can't be a coincidence... can it?

Any ideas?

Interesting! I tried a couple more variations (it is all a lie, that's the truth; all it is it lie that's the truth) without luck. Did you use caps or lower case letters? Other answers have all been lowercase.

Another possibility is that that's the clue for the answer, the way the earlier puzzles worked. But we're on a conspiracy-theory-based website, so "the truth is that is all a lie" could refer to just about any topic in one way or another!

Edit: How's this one -- Satellite Hails Hart "Hi Tutti"? What was the name of Gary Hart's indiscretion way back when?

OMG! I got it... I tried the variation:

"it is all a lie that is the truth"

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!

And well deserved!!

You are a Master Debater as well as a Master Sleuther!!

At the risk of sounding like a butt kisser, I would like to heart fully thank all of the staff involved in this, as well as all the other games. As if your plates aren't full enough.

Credit for the solution goes primarily to Deaf Alien and dahmerjr.

My major contributions to this puzzle were a red herring, and a lucky guess.
