    *Knowledge* is one thing... It's something you already have. *Research* is something else, and will teach you to be knowledgeable! MS *never* said that special *research* wasn't necessary! *All* ciphers require special *knowledge*, and we all know the companion book is chock full of them! I didn't *know* about the Vigenere Cipher, but if I hadn't *learned* it, I never would have understood the solve of the Pook tush tag! Also, we *know* the 'Morse Code' was needed to solve P31, but that wasn't something I already *knew*, either!

    This would also apply to the statement some people keep making about owning the 'Companion Book' not being *necessary*.

    This is the second time I've read this message. Can you please tell me about the "Pook tush tag?"

    Thanks.

    The Pook tush tag has the mysterious letters 'MYMRLYVR'
    Using the Vigenere Cipher with the the key word 'TREASURE' (just like the example in puzzle #14), the mysterious letters spell out THIRTEEN!

    (thanks again, to Vincir! )
