Puzzle 26 - Note To Self

An excercise in lateral thinking to translate the seemingly random characters.

Puzzle 27 - Boxed In

The clue here is "running in circles", follow the text in a circle to read the message.

The difficult bit is knowing where to start.

Puzzle 28 - Dearly Departed

From the two grids find the letters that match in both.

Then read the required answer by reading the first letter in each column and then the second letter in each column.

Puzzle 29 - Secret Decoder

As the description says, we have to decode the password. Each time this puzzle loads there is a different word to decode.

Start by entering seven letters and seeing if any of them are green (correct letter in the correct place) or yellow (correct letter in the wrong place).

By the time you get to the final try you should have been able to eliminate letters and have most if not all of them, if they are not in the right place then anagram them until you get an answer.

Once you have entered the correct password you get two emails and the answer for the puzzle is the two words in uppercase.

The content of the emails is interesting if you are following the story of this section of the Legends of Alcatraz.

Puzzle 30 - Poison Pen

The hard puzzle isn't that hard again, once you know what you are looking for.

There are two clues "This letter spelled the beginning of the end for Jasper" and "To make sense of my ramblings take note of where my words end and begin to see that I am actually quite direct."

Look for words that have the same end and start letter and take that letter as each part of the answer.

  8. In trying to wrap my mind around these puzzles, I think I pulled something.
