    Default grass border

    Since Elrihon was gracious enough to share his find, thought I'd throw out my thoughts.

    Has anyone tried the grass border as a polybius cipher? Counting between the trees long/short. I've tried several variations, but haven't found anything that looks like english..

    Tried a few things as well, so hard to base it on height though as some are shorter than others that are shorter than others ::shrug:: I'm trying shape next

    Oh, well
    Maybe someone else can get this to work.
    Make a copy of this page
    Make a transparency of this page the exact same size. Then with the transparent copy, bring one inner border over to rest just below the opposite border. The negative space between the grass creates words. I've been sliding the border along to see the words but it's too tricky for me.

    Default grass blades

    I have tried using Morse Code for the grass blades - long=dash, short=dot.

    The only problem is that some of the long ones look short, and some short ones look long. So I haven't gotten anything in "english" yet....

    agreed. I have worked on this puzzle extensively and have had the same problems. I thought maybe if there was more than 5 that meant a space between words. But that was quickly ruled out by several in a row having more than 5.

    What about the corners? is it between the tree and the corner? or between the trees which would be around the corner. I have spent hours on this page and haven't come up with anything yet.

    Glad to converse with some people about it though.. there is most definitely something more to this page..
