### Let's Play a Game

Ever play Cryptograms?

Each letter in an original sentence has been replaced by another letter, creating a coded message. Word position, spaces and punctuation remain the same, and a letter in the code always represents the same letter. For instance, if K in the code represents A, K is always A.

So, you look at the statement and use clues, such as the same two letter next to each other (probably LL or TT) or a word alone (probably A or I), to figure out the replaced letters to break the code and read the message. For instance, a hint for the example below is K=A and E=S.

The answer is: This is an example.

Tune in tomorrow for the message

I brush with rice krisy treats.

No?

Karen said...

I am so excited for this. LOL

Yep, I'll give it a go. If I get stuck I'll call the Navajo windtalkers - remember that movie?

That was the best code story ever.

PS: You and I have exactly the same blog template@

Thank god the answer was there. I'm way too tired to think today, but whenever I see a thing like that I just can't let it go...

Kell said...

Queen--Mmmmm rice krispy treats!

Karen--Gotta keep people guessing.

David--Welcome, David! I've seen your comments on Queen's blog, yes? I haven't seen that movie yet. How did I miss that.
P.S. Great minds and all that :)

reh--I have to finish the crossword puzzle, too. I didn't used to, but now I'm a bit obsessed.

Are you *trying* to hurt my brain?

I don't know why I was thinking you you weren't blogging this month, when I obviously know you are. I just whined to Jay about it...Oh well!

OH, and you NEED to vlog with him. You don't have to talk, just sit there and look pretty (and giggle at him)

I enjoy something similar with numbers representing certain letters, so this will be a bit more challenging for me.
