The New Home of the Jumble and Cryptoquote Spoilers!
I’m a bit of a word-nerd. I love doing the crossword puzzle, the Jumble, and the Cryptoquote (or Cryptogram), in the morning newspaper. (For the first time in your uncles life, he was presented with solving a “Crypto-Quip”. It’s, essentially, the same thing as a cryptoquote/gram, but the big attraction seems to be the turning of a well-known phrase, usually employing the element of the pun. Your uncle LOVES puns, but he just can’t fathom WHY the creators would provide 2 “clues” to cracking the code?!?! Fortunately, your uncle was able to avert his eyes, and solve it the way it SHOULD BE solved! C’mon, Crypto-Quip people! Head starts, like that, put it on a level such as The Kid’s Jumble! Drop the “clues”! Real puzzle solvers don’t need, or want, them. YUR) I also enjoy playing hangman (so, you probably know I’m a big fan of Wheel of Fortune)!. I can’t do the sodoku to save my life!
I was going to publish my *Spoilers* here, but it’s easier to post them to the main blog. I may, or may not, shut down this page. We’ll see.
