Minigame II: Code Caper (2v2)

Post the message that was PMed to you on this thread using any of the listed ciphers, and your unknown partner must decipher it before the enemy team does. Whichever team decodes EITHER message first wins.

Allowed Ciphers:

- Any decently common non-random substitution cipher, including the (Caesarian) Shift Cipher or Atbash

- Columnar Transposition

- Rail Fence Cipher

Descriptions and instructions for these ciphers can be found on this website: http://rumkin.com/tools/cipher/

You may use the encoders on the website, but please do not use the decoders.

This minigame will start at 3:00pm EST(-5) on August 28.

A couple announcements:

1. IMPORTANT: I've decided to change it so that the receiver can only decode their own message, the other person's. (The receivers know who their partners are.)

2. This game is meant to last longer than the previous one, possibly up to a couple days.

3. A strategy for the message writers: Try to figure out who your partner is, so that you can give them a hint (or more than a hint) on what the message is. PMing is allowed, but please cc me. Be careful though, the other person might not be your partner at all!

4. Remember, the secret objective is the most important part of this!

Good luck!

Flamebirde got it! His partner was Slick. The message was:

"The omniscient lemur anticipates relentless change on Tuesday."

Panther's partner was Kikacat. Their message was:

"The communist vulture senses inevitible dissonance."

Good job to Flamebirde and Slick.!

Kikacat, when sending a PM, there is a box called CC, which will send it to those people to.

Flame, in every game, one person has a secret objective. This time, Kikacat had it. She had to "figure out some part of both messages." The other players had to try to guess who had the objective and what it was. If she accomplished it without anyone guessing, she receives $200. If anyone guesses correctly, they receive the $200 instead. It's all in the OP :) .


Flamebirde - $75
Slick - $75
Kikacat123 - $75
Panther - $25

Minigame 3 will be up shortly.
