#CIPHERHUNT Day 4 Summary

DAY 1 | DAY 2 | DAY 3 | DAY 4

(x, x, x, x)

Slow but steady progress of the puzzle. The hunters moved from House of Pies > Denny’s > One of the hunters’ houses for more trickling work and sleep > Emerald Knights Comics and Games store and reserved a table.

At 7:36pm PST Alex asked us if we’d like a hint on the puzzle. The answers were an overwhelming yes. (Though personally, I would have preferred none and answered in the negative. Ha.)

The final image will look like this- but with a DIFFERENT code! But this is the layout! #CipherHunt
The filler text reads “THIS IS WHERE THE CLUE APPEARS.” And the single word (same as what’s already been pieced together) under the gnome says “CORNER.” If you like, you can puzzle together a simpler version of the above image online.

Things we know:

  • It’s an image of Bill holding a gnome.
  • There’s a message written in a substitution cipher. One word decodes to “CORNER.”
  • Possibly there is a message written in invisible ink. *EDIT: Alex stated no blacklight is needed!
  • We’ve still got several hours yet before it’s completed.
  • …Lots of yellow pieces.
