    April 12, 2013....To start skip over then go back.

    Do you think this clue is referring to a cipher or a starting point of collecting keys/text?

    What do you people make about the fact that it was released on April Fool's Day?

    In a hunt that states in its directions to be careful of red herrings, I find it difficult to trust anything released on April 1.

    Is the date an irrelevant coincidence?
    Is this clue an intentional red herring?
    Is this clue telling us what NOT to do?
    Is there any way to work out any of these things?
    The fact that clue was giving out on Monday and it's April's Fool but I don't think that's the intention.
    He gave out that clue again on 4/9/2014 and he spelled it out. The last few clues were just reference to the date of the clues.

    It could be both.

    Clue sent out early this week. Very little discussion. Must believe that the clues are not helping or most have given up or think after 14 months it is futile. Here is why nobody has solved this one:
    1. No known skipping pattern. Is it 2,3 or 4?
    2. No known cipher? Is it simple substitution, atbash or even Playfair?
    3. No known starting point.
    4. How many letters are added? Is it 2 in their own hunt or 3 stragglers?

    That sums it up nicely. I still have no idea how many letters we are looking for, and how many are just tacked onto the end.

    I just simply don't have anything constructive to add at this point. I am very interested in seeing how this one is solved.

    I submitted my best answers about week and a half ago. I am completely tapped out.. With no new clues, I don't think I can come up with anything new. I feel like Im so close too.


    Hopefully new clues will be released at some point.

    You may see new clues next September after the summer break. Unless someone is able to solve it before then with the revisited clues.

    Obviously something's missing. Maybe the cipher & key are overstating.
    "Start at the (N)eedle" but recently some hints about "(H)ell's Back Yard" also. Maybe the key has length 8!
