    Hi Scotty!! Welcome!

    I am hung up on this one. I believe it is a rotate but have had not luck with the spacing, rows etc. Can you give me a nudge?

    Thanks,
    Lauren

    Hi Lauren,

    Re: Ch12 q10 - I also believe this is a rotate cipher but haven't actually found the absolute correct method to de-crypt it. Was just trying different row plus column setups and then found one that meant a few target words started to pop out as relevant to Chapter - capitalization was the thing that helped me identify the target words. Put these words together to get part of the desired question and then bingo - had an answer that fitted the Cryptex.

    Hope this helps

    Scotty

    I hit 240 a while back, but I am starting to get very bored of waiting for more clues... Anyone have any other hunts to recommend while we wait? US only please.

    Thank you Shrek, Would not have been able to complete it with your help and others. This is my first treasure hunt and I am just happy that I did all the questions! I got several clues on the go for chapter one, but nothing so far.

    We're down to our final 7 questions. They are the bane of our existence says the Chief Simikkles! We crumbled & ordered the cipher book as a last resort( we had sworn to do this on our own, but are so stumped it isn't worth the brain drain to continue as we are. Matters are scary enough- we have guessed 12 answers correctly without solving the ciphers, and that is driving us crazy because we are sure these same ciphers are going to pop us and kick us in the teeth somewhere else along the way if we don't figure them out!So we are trying to still trying to solve the ciphers and still making no progress! It's been a year almost! GADS! SHADES OF DAR!
    "We may not be first, but at least we are not last!" Meaner Simikkles RULE!
