A thread to discuss clever ways to give and hide clues.

Two numbers, always together.
15, 1 

Cipher: The first number is the page of a book, the send is the first word appearing on that page.
Questions: But... which book? Something popular or something recently published.

Could also use 3 numbers- page, line, word on that line. There is also Lysander's method.

No. No. No.  It's the newest issue of the Star Frontiersman.  The most popular rag in the Frontier. Smile

Actually, it could be anything agreed upon in advance by the two parties.  It could even be a periodical and the first set of numbers provided refer to the issue whether month/day, volume/issue, or whatever.  i.e. we are sending ciphers using Harper's Weekly and the first number identifies the issue to use.  All others refer to pages, lines, words, whatever within that issue.
