June 28th, 2017 08:45 pm - Thoughts on Nick’s Challenge Cipher #1…

Posted by nickpelling

I posted up seven homophonic challenge ciphers a few days ago, and now – though it may sound a little counter-intuitive – I’d like to try to help you solve them (bear in mind I don’t know if they can be solved, but the whole point of the challenge is to find out). Of the Read More →

June 23rd, 2017 01:05 am - Cracking the Scorpion S1 cipher…?

Posted by nickpelling

I’ve blogged a few times about trying to crack the Scorpion Ciphers (a series of apparently homophonic ciphers sent to American crime TV host John Walsh). Most of my effort has been spent on the Scorpion S5 cipher, which (despite having 12 columns) appears to be rigidly cycling between 16 cipher alphabets. However, it struck Read More →
