Fantastic job Whitewave! And great work explaining how you did it. Thanks for that. As 'Must be a way' said, 2000 points will find you very soon.

And another thanks to 'Must be a way' for a great cipher and all the work that goes into writing and updating a code, once it's on the thread. One of us will add another cipher very soon. Cheers, all.

I'll keep looking for a new cipher, this is a very good game/thread idea!

I think I'll add your thread link into my sig
More players, more competition, more fun!

That's awesome! Thank you very much, SpookyVince! I agree with you, too. More players is more fun. And now that there are two of us writing these ciphers, I have very high hopes that this game will be around for a long time! Thanks for playing and thanks for your kind words. Cheers!

Way to go Whitewave!

SpookyVince, good idea. I've put a link in my signature as well. It's be fun to get some more people in here

As of now, "Switch" is at 500 points and counting. Good luck all and thanks for playing! Cheers!

PS; Thanks to SpookyVince and to CeltAngel for adding the thread to your signatures! That's outstanding! Thank you both very much!

Hmmm... Each one of those numbers must be a letter, or at the minimum a movement in the alphabet. This one makes me await for the first clue impatiently!

Woohoo! Another cipher! Thanks Static, I'm looking forward to giving this my best effort

You guys are absolutely awesome! Thank you so much for giving this thread your time and making it the success that it is! I'm proud to have you all on my friends list, too. It makes that worth having. And 'Must be a way' is worth his weight in gold on here, too. This has turned out far better than I ever imagined. Cheers and good luck to all!

My gratitude is a clue for you all this evening. The name counts, as usual. On top of that, consider where your favorite radio station is found. Mine is X92.9fm in Calgary. The answer to this clue constitutes word-play in my opinion. Thanks again, everyone!

Oh goody! Another one! Tonight is last night at work so at least I won't have to wait as long to start on it. You guys gotta give me a chance and not solve it before I even start working on it.

Just kidding. Good luck to all and thanks Static Sky for more fun and games.

"Switch" is now at 600 points. Another little clue to help you find your way....

*There are 2 keys at play here. I made 1 key and then used it to make the second key. So they play off of each other as much as they do off the alphabet, which of course all keys ultimately do. Good luck, everyone!

"Switch" is now at 700 points. Another small clue for today....

**There are no extra characters or 'scrap' in this code. Good luck to all!

Oyven!! :bnghd: I'm not sure if I liked mustbeaway's clues because I was sort of on the right track, or Static's cause they prove I'm NOT.

Lalalallalalalalalalal *crazy dance*

An excellent looking code Static!!

Im trying to be disciplined and finish of the one Im creating ready for next post before I get stuck into yours!

I have very little time at the moment, but once I have one of these things in my head I cant seem to help myself.

good luck all

Doh! I'm having trouble even knowing where to begin.

All the letters in order:
R, Q, V, W, B, M, J, H, Y, Q, V, I, W, M, Q, V, R, H, J, M, V, U, F, E, I, C, I

All the numbers as they correspond to their letter place in the alphabet:
P, D, J, F, V, D, O, A, A, D, I, Q, D, N, Q, B, E, J, S, D, A, K, L, A, G

Obviously the number DON'T correspond to the letter place in the alphabet as there are 3 "Q's" (letters and/or numbers) and only 1 "U".

I got excited when I originally noticed that the first 3 places (R,16,Q) were so close to each other in the alphabet (R=18, 16=P, Q=17) however, my excitement quickly faded when the rest of the cipher failed to produce the same results.

The clues are just as elusive and mysterious.
1)The key is in the name.
2)Radio station call signs.
3)One key is used to make the other. (so neither letters or numbers represent themselves?)
4)There are no extra characters or scrap in this code.

I don't know what it is I'm supposed to switch. I've tried switching the order-last to first; sequential number spacing, etc. I've now officially gone cross-eyed and must patiently await another clue.

Good one Static Sky! This is not going to be easy to crack!

I shouldnt really be playing with Statics codes as a contributer!
but as we are not actually in cohesion and I do not have the answer I see it as fun all round?

the clue of using the first key to create the second threw me off track!!!!

I thought whitewave would be the first to notice there are to many 'ct' (cipher text) characters to match a 'pt' (plain text) alphabet?????

that means as well as interaction there is overlap???

sorry Static is Im treading on toes?? thoughts but due to new girlfriend have very little time to follow it up properly

I have never done one of these before, but i just read thru the thread, and i am in...

This is cool...

I have 30 mins to work on this one...

Welcome to the game, TKainZero. Thanks for checking it out! I should mention that "Switch" is at 800 points now, too. Another clue....

**Really more of a clarification of an earlier clue as Whitewave was gracious enough to write them out for everybody. The radio clue I gave is more to do with where any station can be found on the dial, than callsigns, themselves. And remember, I think that clue is word-play so don't take it too much at face value.

Good luck to all and be well.

as I stated whilst my cipher was being solved I think feedback is important. keeps it fun for everyone and any idea could help

my current train of thought is along the lines of;

(key1) ABCDEF...............................
(plain) abcdef.................................
(key2) 1 2 3 4 5 6 ..........................

'switch' I think is alternating from the top key to the lower one?

I havent had the time to find anyother pattern other than 'Q4V' possibly = 'the'

good luck all

"Switch" is at 900 points now. The clue for today is to look at the theory 'Must be a way' is talking about. He's on the right track, but his theory is short one key ingredient. The method of the first key. Cheers!

posted on Dec, 7 2008 @ 01:50 PM
Alright, now "Switch" is at 1000 points! Todays clue.....


Good luck everyone!
