Tales from the Cryptogram
Kaufman on 11/30/2006
|Listen up, this is important. Before you start taking this quiz, I strongly suggest that you get out a piece of paper and something to write with. If you don't, you likely will not do well on this quiz.|
I also suggest you take a moment now to write the letters from A to Z on that piece of paper.
A cryptogram is defined as a message written in cipher. Typically, cryptograms are simple substitution ciphers, in which each letter in the text corresponds to one other letter. For instance, if A is encoded as B, B as C, and so forth, "Sploofus" would read as "Tqmppgvt".
Here's how this quiz works. I randomly created a cipher that I will apply to all the answers in this quiz. So if A translates to B in one place, it will throughout all ten questions. While all the possible answers will be encoded, don't despair. I'll start you off with some very easy questions that should give you a toehold on the cipher key, and we'll build up from there.
If your head is spinning, I won't mind if you bail out now. If you think this is going to be the most fun since tmjdfe csfbe, jump right in!
