    Default The web cryptology game

    The web cryptology game CODEBREAKERS.EU - Home page

    Starts Dec 10 - must be teams of three. There are prizes, but only EU countries can participate in the ultimate prize. Players can be from any country until that time.

    If you are into codes and ciphers or even want to learn, it seems like a very fun challenge. Lectures are presented first. There is one up now as an intro. Each person must sign up on the site, but only one needs to register the team. There has to be 3 for a team.

    I would like to participate but only for fun and challenge. I am in the US so can not qualify for finals (as if that would happen anyway!). If you are interested and need a player I would like to join you. I am a novice in crypto and a member of the ACA. I love all things codes and ciphers.

    Seems like a fun learning experience at the site.

    Is anyone from Tweleve doing this? I am just doing it for fun -- a one man/woman team. I am stuck on Lecture 2 task 2 -- the Ottendorf. I have plain text and have tried all kinds of ways to enter the answer but non have been accepted. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, and can not imagine there is that much plain text elseware in the 'site' instead of what I recovered.

    Any nudge or help would be appreciated. Obviously I'm not going for any real win, just personal experience.

    Can't edit the above so have to post another in a row. I did get the above and am caught up waiting for the release of Lecture 4 now (Jan. 11) and the next tasks. It's really a fun set of ciphers/puzzles. If you haven't checked it out you may want to. Of course, if you are in EU, you still have a chance of winning the prizes! New teams can still sign up.
