    I haven't looked at this in ages. What did you do to have the wordsearch give you words? I was thinking of doing a rotate on the letters and then looking at them but I haven't had a chance to pursue it yet.

    Default Wordsearch

    OK- lets attack this thing.

    Using basic cryto techniques, meaningful words take shape in the word search. However, I get the sense that some of these are leading to yet another red herring (Elvis?). Hits on Jimmy Buffet songs, etc.

    Curious though, I may have found a use for an unfinished picture of a horse.

    No ideas on what the brand symbols and numbers are for circling the wordsearch.

    Also, maybe the word search isn't really a word search. Maybe it is a four square cipher all stuck together.

    I have read about the four square cipher but having a hard time fully understanding the technique. Think this may be the way to go.

    Don't rotate the letters. That does not work.

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    OK - Have a song and a particular group. State idea. Is this all there is to the word search. I thought it was going to be a very big help. Maybe there is more to this that I am overlooking......

    Stvwz,
    I don't think it is a word search...well not in the usual sense.

    Trainor,
    I don't think it is a four-square either. Or a playfair for that matter.

    Stvwz,
    That leaves us back to the brand symbols around the "word search" that you mentioned. Hmmmm.... Maybe we should all concentrate our efforts on those.
