    Ok, solved the second half of the wordlist, and like you 'Ace' & 'meaner', I'm wondering exactly what we do with the first half of the wordlist. perhaps all will become clear once we suss how to order the keys.

    I feel like I am always one chapter behind. Working my through 11, but will be to 12 shortly to see what all the fuss is about!

    I'm wondering if the first half has a bearing to the order of the keys. I still don't see any connection to the code after.

    P.S. I figured out the second half the incredibly hard way. I spent hours going through hundreds of poems to find one that fit the answer key, then worked backwards. I don't recommend this method unless you have a ton of time to kill. Lol!

    In Q10, am I reading it correctly, that we have a 35 letter word?

    Surely this isn't just one word, just a letter string? Has everyone else solved this cipher yet?

    Forgot to add .... on Q20, I have the soduku solve, and an answer I really liked, because it was the same from whichever "4" I started from. But it's wrong

    Am I still not thinking outside of the box?

    Default "sussing"

    Ozzy head,

    I am completely new to ciphers so forgive me, but what do you mean by "sussing" the words?

    Thanks,
    Lauren

    Hi, It just means that I have 'worked out' the list of words not sure what to do with them yet though.

    This one is giving me fits too. I think I know how it is supposed to be solved, yet nothing I have done is yielding me an answer. I can make out some words if I stretch my imagination, but nothing coherent. Any nudges out there?

    Hog/stvwz,

    It seems pretty illogical that there is a 35 letter word... Not to mention the repeating letters in that word. These two things should give you a clue as to what this question IS NOT.

    If you have all the questions from previous Chapters answered, you will have used the "method" to decipher this question before. This one has a slight variation. Make sure to look at the question in the book VERY carefully
