2017 decoding challenge post #1

Here we are, Jan 1st 2017 and what better way to start the new year with a bit of a decoding challenge. We’ve cooked up a bunch of codes just for you our readers. We have encoded them with ciphers that were already talked about in our daily posts. Some have multiple steps but you should be able to use your skills to decipher them.

Basic rules:

  1. Do not post the solution. Even if it’s fully redeemed. Give others a chance to figure it out.
  2. You can post the rewards redeemed if you wish
  3. No hints will be posted or given. The full solutions will be posted on Jan 7
  4. The passcode format is different: #xxx#keywordx#x#x

I could tell you not to share the passcodes in Hangout, Slack, Telegram and other communication software but I can’t stop you. Just remember that’s it’s not about the rewards, it’s about finding the solve.

So, Happy New Year to all of you in Eastern Russia, Tuvalu, Kiribati and the Marshall Isl.:
