List of Answers

This is a list of the answers to each problem that has been posed. CodeBreaker's are in Black, Calendars are in Grey. Each individual PDF page has been numbered with on l for the left side and r for the right side.

Crib. Answers are generally pointers to text that appears on the next page in a cipher sequence - see Connections page for more info.

CAUTION: The font used in several of the ciphertexts makes it easy to confuse an uppercase P with a D, particularly when mirrored. Whoever transcribed those below has made this mistake in at least some cases (9R). I don't have time right now to go through and correct them all, but be wary of using the transcription here until it's been confirmed.

14/08 @ 11:20pm - Doing some housekeeping on this page, reverting all answers to the exact format they were given by the code, in light of a conversation I was part of yesterday, regarding the gambler's advice at the beginning of the book. Doing it from a different computer so that unchecked links are blue, not purple. - Bob

I filled in some values for the table below - incomplete and probably some errors. Most are taken from the plain text on the pages without using solutions to the puzzles, but not all. Perhaps some should be combined rather than using puzzle solutions. -- G
