Use the Swap-Boxes below the cryptogram for all moves.
How to solve a cryptogram:
Examine the encrypted quote in the box above. Look for clues in patterns and punctuation. Place the letter you would like to change in the first box, then the letter you would like to change it to in the second box. Once this is done, press the "Swap" button. Re-examine the puzzle and continue swapping letters until you can reveal each word and ultimately the entire quote! When you solve the full puzzle (including the quoted person's name) you will be alerted of your win.
Important Rules to follow:
DO NOT type in the large text box where the quote is found. Use the smaller swap-boxes below the encrypted quote. You must only put one letter at a time in each box. Never press the Swap button with one of the swap-boxes blank (it'll delete parts of the puzzle and really screw you up). You should only use lower case letters in solving the cryptogram; upper case will not work. If you use upper case letters, more than one letter in a box, or any type of symbols it will alter the puzzle and put you even further away from finishing the cryptogram. There are four hints available for each cryptogram. Use them if you get stuck, but try to solve them puzzles using as few hints as possible.
Tips for solving a Cryptogram:
If you think you know what one word is, try swapping the letters to finish that word and in the process, if your guess is correct, you will reveal other words or parts of them which will help you in solving the puzzle. Take notice of patterns in spelling and clues in punctuation. Shorter words are easier to guess at and you should probably start there. Frequent letter combinations (th, sh, wh), common word endings (ing, er, ly), contractions (can't, won't, you're), and double letters in words all provide great clues and places for you to begin the puzzle.
Think you've got it now?
Once you get to the point where you feel comfortable and confident, then start challenging yourself further by using a stopwatch. I usually feel pretty good if I can completely solve a puzzle in less than eight minutes.
The "Letters Used" area with check boxes on the right side of the page is for your convenience in keeping track of the letters you have already used. Its use is optional and can be ignored without affecting the puzzle.
The stopwatch is also a tool for you to challenge yourself further. You don't have to use it, but advanced cryptogrammers will probably appreciate it.
You can easily and quickly send this puzzle to a friend by utilizing the "Share this Cryptogram" link annoyingly floating across this page.
Best of luck to you!!!
