I'm stuck too. I've done some stuff with checking the frequency of numbers and combinations of numbers, but nothing's jumped out at me yet.

"Baseless Worries" is at 800 points now. Ian, I love the new avatar. You're old one kept hypnotizing me. Darn little black dots. lol. And thanks for the clue, though I'd already been there and back again several times to no avail. I'm really liking this code. Thanks again, Ian!

Cheers, everyone!

No need to worry about that as far as I'm concerned. I'm still stumped.

Great! Let's see if we can get it up over 1000 points.

Does that mean I should just let it be for a couple days?

"Baseless Worries" is at 900 points.

In regards to your last clue Ian, I did think it had to be so. Either multiple word options for some or all number strands, or some sort of (likely mathematical if so), process of condensing the number strands through consistant and organized routine (ie; sub key).

Anyways, still perfectly stumped. Well done, my friend. Anyone else getting anywhere with this one?

I'm only about 3 hours late but "Baseless Worries" is at 1000 points now!

And Ian, I noticed you linked this thread in your signature. Thank you very much for that. This seems to be somewhat of a busy time of year for most people and we can use all the new players we can get. Cheers everyone! Have a great weekend.

So, "Baseless Worries" did reach the 1000 points target…

What about another hint just to celebrate?!


I've got this thing stuck in my head for a while and I really need to solve it soon, otherwise I'll be carried to the loony bin or something like that…
:bnghd:

4. Division by 26 is required.

Oh, I really feel like that's giving it away... I'm kind of anxious to start the next puzzle I have, though - I've been working on something special.

Okay, I came to "check it out" - since you linked it in FCP, but now I KNOW I am in the wrong place, dang - my mind fries and bakes when it comes to math stuff.......


YIKES - I am outta here!! FAST!!

Maybe I'm just being dense, but I'm still stumped


I had already gone down the divide-each-number-by-26 route and couldn't figure out where to go from there. I still don't see it.

Today's hint added. Welcome to the fun, newcommer92!

Baseless Worries

"2339027659 120578267918 30490166
154816531992 154775609902 6025309
56407825711" - 229199170 1913176946889

Hints

1. You'll need a calculator and/or lots of scrap paper.
2. Each number separately encodes one or two words.
3. The title hints to both the coding and solution.
4. Division by 26 is required.
5. 27 = "BB".

I trust everyone is having an enjoyable weekend? Don't worry ADB - I'm still learning this cipher-making stuff, I promise that the next puzzle won't be so difficult! Of course, I feel I've given enough hints that it should be solvable, but that's always easy to think when you already know the answer, right?

i know i have had another clue but im not sure what the divide by 26 means, you say it is needed but where....to everything????

It's also possible I'm just being dense. It does happen from time to time.

I'm taking the night off from cipher-breaking because I'm too nervous about the tournament and won't be able to focus until I find out what I've got to fight about

Sorry I missed you yesterday. It was my sons third birthday party. We entertained all day and I didn't get a chance to update.

"Baseless Worries" is at 1200 points now.

I think someone will crack it very soon. For my second prediction, it probibly won't be me. lol. :bnghd: It seems I'm okay at writing these, but rather useless in solving them.
