Okay for you math nerds (like me! :thumbsup: ) and want a challenge?

Okay you got one! :flowers:

I made 2 cyphers the first one is kinda easy (even tho you need a hint.)


Part 1 (hint O = I)
Xcj ws, bf rtaasv Xbtgonxcw: xwe csu vqxu fsyg nsycugf nxc js rsg fsy xwe vqxu fsy nxc js rsg fsyg nsycugf.

Bf rtaasv nouoktcw sr uqt vsgaj: xwe csu vqxu Xbtgonxc voaa js rsg fsy, pyu vqxu usdtuqtg vt nxc js rsg uqt rgttjsb sr bxc.

Rocxaaf, vqtuqtg fsy xgt nouoktcw sr Xbtgonxcw sg nouoktcw sr uqt vsgaj, xwe sr yw uqt wxbt qodq wuxcjxgjw sr wugtcduq vqonq vt xwe sr fsy.
Zsqc R. Etcctjf

Good Luck! :trumpet:


Part 2
WPMDPCWXMWPNDSMAPCWPCWXMDVCAPMAVNWVNDPNDXCDPMWVCWPCAVCDXNWVMAPNAXNAVMQPMWXNDVMDVNQXC.

Also as you attempt to work on these show your work so I can "help" you.

EDIT: i fixed the typo in the first one. :inlove:

This is insane. I've been fiddling with this first one off and on all day. Everytime I substitute a letter or a word (I did tons of these in puzzle books), something doesn't work.
I guess you have to be a member of MENSA to find this easy.

Either offer another hint or don't give the answer. I'm still straining my brain. Trust me, it's hurting.

For the first one.
Ok, its a famous phrase (every has at least said it, and heard it once). ;)

Also C = N.

Also here is a hint for the 2nd one. I used "3-Dimensional" grid to make it. ;) http://www.vectorsite.net/ttcode4.html 4.3 (I didn't to the "warthog" thing here, i just did the "adfgx" but i obsiovly used different letters.) But id did add another "dimension." :thumbsup: (i was up to 6 this morning looking to find if it is possible to "draw the 4th dimension."
I just added a 3rd dimension to a similar code used in WW2. (however I obsiovaly reorganized it.) :flowers:

I'll add more to the 2nd part one to help everyone out... cause currently Part2 has every letter used once except 2 of them.

Also what/who is MENSA?

Thanks Yanowhiz. I've been off the computer working on it. I just might be getting close.

MENSA is the organization of the most brilliant people in the world. I'm not sure how difficult it is to get in this club but I'm sure I could never pass the test.

That threw me off. The 'm' should have been a 'b', decoded, it's an 'm'. I just about had it when I saw your post.

"And so my fellow Americans: Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

"My fellow citizens of the world: Ask not what American (typo, either no N or S is missing) will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."

"Finally, whether you are citizens of Americans or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength which we ask of you."

Cool. Start showing us your ideas and maybe it would be easier to give you hints. :thumbsup:

Where might one find an application for this club MENSA? :flowers: :trumpet:

Part 1 had no pattern I just used a online program to randomly generate numbers so that each letter of the alphabet is replaced with a random new one. :thumbsup: PM your answer. :flowers:

TexasAngel67 I'll take the test tomorrow morning... :trumpet: I'm getting kinda tired now and I wanna be completly rested for it. :inlove:

I decided just to goto the websites and I got 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 on the first link from about.com. :thumbsup: :flowers:

However I doubt if they would let me in cause my official IQ (not done online, it was done by a schoo physciologist, when I was trying to get into the really advance classes) is 126.

O BTW: I'll add more cyphers similar to part 1, since someone (texasangel67) already solved it.

I've also been thinking about giving away like 5 gmail invites for part 1, and possibly even like 30 gmail invites for someone solving the 2nd part (i've been thinking about free website hosting on my account, but idk about that yet)
