# Puzzles and Ciphers

Found 10th Apr 2010
Who is any good at them?
Im not bad but im really struggling with this.

all i have is this text and the title: LOST

and 2 words: Chalky, Gazebo

he means cipher, it helps you break a code or understand a secret message

Thanks. I thought it must be some latest craze. :oops:
So the 6 blocks of ten letters relate to the title LOST and two of the blocks mean Chalky and Gazebo.
I can't do that!
I'll be interested to see the answer though.

What is a chipfer? What do you have to do?

a cipher is a way of encrypting a message.

The most famous is probably the Caesar Cipher, Julius Caesar used a shift of 3 to encode his messages.

The letter you want to write gets paired with a letter 3 along from it in the alphabet so:

A becomes D
B becomes E
C becomes F

Etc.

Thats an easy one. i think this one is some kind of double column transposition cipher.

Essentially its code breaking.

The blocks of 10- letters may be a further encryption and the words Chalky and Gazebo are cipher Keys, but the decoded message will be coordinates.
Im expecting the first part to be NORTHFIVEONE or NFIVEONE
Thanks for the info.:thumbsup:

Good luck with the code breaking.:-D

Ta! Im going to need it!
Its starting to send me a bit loopy at the moment!
I hope someone is going to post the answer or I'll be up all night...

I was wondering where I was

I still havent got it.

Im almost certain it is to do with a double transposition cipher though!
for those who were interested, i finally solved it!
