How about a real puzzle cointest?

Recommended Posts

 

i am assuming this puzzle could be made with any 5 letters. i am also assuming that the background picture is a hint

 

That's what I'm assuming too but just isn't coming to me..

 

I really should be reading Harry Potter right now too

Just wanted to say: Two hours! It's almost a record. :)

 

My cointest the other night took about 3hrs and 45 minutes which is way too long as I wanted to go to bed. :) Do you think we can solve this before you leave work for the day I would guess 45 minutes from now?

2 Hours seems like a good time for a hint. :)

 

And my coin is the RE Black Nickel, which is still an excellent looking coin.

 

No hints yet. :)

Would you hate me if I said "No, I don't think you can solve this by the time I leave work"?

There is a six letter cipher, just like the five letter one you speak of. You can decipher the question using it, and then send him the answer. check your email.

 

Just send me one coin as a birthday gift if you get it :)

 

TMA

 

Setting up the "key square" is proving to be a little troubling to me. I understand the shifting of the columns and then plugging in the info. I will continue to read up on this until I amable to plug something in.

Also want to add that hacking my photobucket account won't help, and will make me upset, so whoever just tried to get my password... Don't!

its not an image map

 

"www" and "com" appear - is there a website hidden somewhere?

 

no 5 letter group contains all 5 letters, only 4 of the 5 letters at the most

 

There is only one column that contains all 5 letters

Does anyone know what type of moth is in the picture? I think that may be the key.

Why 5 letters? Why not more or less?

Some puzzle caches aren't solved for days or even weeks so two hours is a drop in the bucket. I's say he left for work anyway right now.

I think my left part of my brain just melted trying to figure this out. I can't wait for that hint because I have tried removing and CCS in the puzzle, only 3 not including the last thing. I thought it was a puzzle and made a paragraph but there is no way CCS could translate into a 3 letter word. If anyone has made any progress. Please post so we could all work togeather.

This is my favorite way of solving puzzles.

 

Don't count on the hint to unmelt your brain, SoC!

And for the record I already viewed the source of the picture and I am sorry to report that Photobucket couldn't help.

WOAH!!! Just for the record if you are reffering to my above comment, I said nothing about "hacking" a photobucket account :) . I merely stated that I viewed the source of your photo( you knowm right click, properties :) ).

 

If you were not reffering to my comment and indeed someone is trying to "hack" your photobucket, then indeed that is wrong, and they deserve to be tar and feathered :) .

We tried it, too, but the problem is that the keyword obviously has the letters moscow in it, but there are two o's, so you don't know what or where or how many in what order to use... resulting in a LOT of different combinations possible!!

Nope, not you. Someone requested my password, which came to me and not them. Someone clicked the "forgot password" link on photobucket, attempting to get in to my account. I don't know it was advertant or inadvertant. That's what I was referring to.

I don't know if that will help or hinder. :) Best of luck.

 

I'm headed home, and then I'm going caching. :) I'll check back periodically.

Thank you for clarifying, I just wanted to make sure that didn't you miss read my post :) . With that being said, my intent was not to have someone go there and try something stupid.

Isn't it about time for you to leave work? :) I'm getting ready to leave work, too, but I want to read the hint first!

The key word for the puzzle could be anything, the name of the moth, the CCS, even something involving geocaching.

 

Judging by the photo it appears to me that the keyword may be Moscow?

Actually, I thought that related more to ADFGVX ?

ADFGVX ?

 

Since I am puzzle challenged I can't even solve this one :)

 

so there is no way I can understand the hint....

try key word moth I got to go

I tried it, all I got was gibberish, not that that means anything!

 

I've tried numerous keywords, variations onthem and anything I think might be related to who gave us this puzzle. So far all gibberish.

 

More brain metldown. If we all give a pice of brain to this we might hit upon it. :)
