  • lexi

    can you post the answer here? i’m really curious what the rest is, i’m was so close but i didn’t figure it out still.

  • This is awesome, I love stuff like this! After work I’ma have to take a crack at this!

  • Neat puzzle, figured it out in about 15 minutes except for the solution! I was using the decoded words instead of the actual words (I don’t think that will give anything away). Thanks for the brain challenge on this rainy day.

  • a.e.

    That seem to me to be rediculously dificult.
    Good thing I cheated. 🙂

  • Stan

    Nice, saw this puzzle before going out this morning, had a go when I got back. Had the same problem as Karen but figured it out eventually 🙂

  • I did it without cheating!
    Shame I have no proof.

  • steve

    i started translating into ms word so i could color code my translations, based on which colors i thought i figured out the rules for. i dont think karens and stans comments ruined anything but do make me think im just going off in the wrong direction now, lol.

    • Stan

      Steve: just carry on translating until you get all the words and it’ll make sense!

      • steve

        ah yep, it did 🙂 just had me overthinking it for a moment was all.

  • MR.

    i feel so retarded. i looked at it for 5 minutes and still cant get anywhere with it.

  • a little hint to get your started:

    whirred = word
