    Nice find Molnar....

    On pigpen....I seem to get hotel at end...but no word at beginning...I assume there is a more difficult variant where the letters are distributed in the grids randomly?

    Molnar beat me to the Playfair solve, but I got the same thing. The phrase was written by Italo Calvino in reference to "Lightness" and machines. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightness.

    As for the Revelation 6:14, it talks about the heavens being rolled back like a scroll. Verse 15 then goes on to say that the kings and rich men will hide in the caves among the rocks. Not knowing if there are caves around Leith Hill, I don't know if this has any significance....

    I was wondering if the haunted house cipher was some sort of two square deal, but I don't know what the words would be to get the squares started....

    I peaked at last year's.....so I take it someone will have to go to library and get a calvino book and use the ticket numbers to get words? And if so....do you use an English translation or the original?

    And of course this is all very fun when we are avoiding 16.00

    I just noticed....

    On the map you can click to the entrance....this takes you to victoria who says this:

    The Fool returned to Victoria, who was still sitting in her garden, appreciating the gentle sounds of the stream as it flowed beside her. "You can't leave by this entrance," she said. "But there is a way out behind the mo..."
