Hi

I recently received an invitation to a friends wedding on December 28th. My friends name is Ieuan and he is getting married to Paula.

He sent out a piece of paper enclosed in the wedding invitation with the following number sequences on it:

222666 66477728 8855528444666 66777709996668804428883302227772 2225533 308443302226663 330944280933096668855530777332555 5559990555444553304447777083367887777089666

He obviously thinks that his wedding guests enjoy decrypting as much as he does.

I have tried all I the ways I know of breaking the code and was wondering if anyone could give me some clues on what to do next. I've broken it down into patterns, then noted frequency of individual sets of numbers i.e. 222, then noted down frequency of bigraphs i.e. 222666, but I cant seem to make any sense of it.

Any help from anyone would be appreciated.

many thanks

Sean

SOLVED - by the guys at Southhampton University maths cipher club - they took about 45 minutes to solve it - You wont find the solution in the code book - any one want to guess before I post the answer in 24 hours time?
