Code

hi... im new to the forums... a friend of mine made this code... can anyone help me crack it?

The code:

86 92 17 13 12 11 19 18 76 82 19 01
44 66 16 14 13 12 27 12 91 71 04 12
92 47 14 65 35 41 97 22 13 04 42 13
81 88 91 87 44 92 61 45 00 95 29 92
94 91 89 29 72 61 25 04 42 62 24 87
62 54 44 43 61 48 04 91 63 17 16 63
87 86 63 62 12 49 27 61 33 42 44 21
93 14 72 71 16 21 22 34 10 14 98 67
34 23 34 16 89 09 97 55 45 82 64 76
45 64 01 12 42 91 23 33 26 87 94 22
90 04 33 23 44 24 21 44 65 28 46 13
00 12 23 55 64 22 12 99 34 12 44 12


Clues:
The numbers (obviously) stand for alphabets
This is a 4 letter word
Use the "bishop" to "check" the clue
Think of it as a chessboard

Re: Code

A warm welcome to the forum, rbd.

This is a definite challenge! Let us work on it for a while.

Re: Code

Hi anonimnystefy;

What do you think of post#3? Did he get it right? Also I did not get any answer on your two deck problem. I did some additional work there for you.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Code

Hi anonim,

I'm following your excursions into the past again... because I've always had an everlasting fascination for codes, spent many, many hours devising bridge bidding systems in the old days when there were not so many restrictions...

I want to add to my puzzles, coded clues! So that the code can be very easily and quickly deciphered. Hiding one 4-letter word in a 12x12 matrix is not my idea of elegance. The following code hides one word in a sequence of 14 letters. To solve:

You can just write the answer down straight away, without having burdened your memory with more than about 5 bits of knowledge.

ASYIFKMKTUBZRB

Warning: The word you are looking for is not valid in scrabble, it's a name and a very rare one at that. It does, however, appear in Google, it's a name of great antiquity.

Re: Code

The answer is not 'drake', that much I do remember. I have the answer, but I've forgotten entirely how to get it. So I might as well try to solve it myself... looks difficult even knowing the answer...
