    Default Things or thing( ) missing in Companion book

    I don't want to throw any curves-there are enough already, but is anyone else pursuing the missing letters/words in the companion book? Does the word or words "Toss" or Toss It have meaning to anyone in regards to the C/book? Also, notice there are two "non" puzzles (or very weak puzzles-if you will)included in the puzzle section that clearly defines two states. Have they meaning? Distraction? Ideas welcomed.

    Default Missing pages in C-Book

    I recently got the c-book and there are several pages missing. The answers to certain puzzles are in the back of the book but the puzzles themselves are not.

    Anyone else have this problem or have I just gotten a bad copy?

    Thanks.

    It sounds like you may have received a bad copy.
    What page numbers are missing in your book?

    Default vigenere ciphers

    on page 49, i was checking a couple of things in the book against this cipher when i discoved that there is a mistake in the alphabet. The "Y" and the "X" are reversed. This may be a typo, but it is done twice.

    Default it actually solves the quote

    on the next page, it solves the quote. There are two Ys in the quote and it lines up with the mistake!!

    TREAS URETRE ASUR ETRE
    RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES

    So is this more than coincidence or is this a mistake that he made up while putting the book together?!

    Default wait a minute

    I know that i am following myself up fro the second time...but this is bizarre!
    There are a few mistakes here on page 49-50...quite sloppy (very sloppy if you really look at it) or deliberate!

    The key word is Treasure

    TREAS URETRE ASUR ETRE (KEY WORD)
    RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES (PHRASE)
    KZKHL VVJHII YGOI IRVW (CORRECT CIPHER)
    KZKHL VVJVII XGOI IQVM (AUTHORS CIPHER)

    The mistake letters would actually be C X X I (note-Xs are because of the mistake in the alphabet at the top)

    Just to let you know, I had found that error pretty early in the hunt, before this web page was created, and emailed the publisher.

    they admitted it was a printing error and said that they would fix it in the next issue.

    Another error in the CB is the one associated with the Dancing Men
    cipher. The cipher decodes to "Elsie prepare to meet thy God".
    The provided decoding reads something else. Just count the letters
    to verify. Apparently MS copied the wrong crypt from an online book.

    Oops! Here's the pic he should have used for "Come here at once."


    There seems to be more puzzles than we can shake a stick man at!
