CryptogramsIn Cryptography teasers, a phrase or expressions has been encoded in some way (frequently by replacing letters with other letters). You need to figure out the encoding method and then decode the message to find the answer.
Don't be discouraged by these strings of seemingly meaningless letters. You don't have to be a CIA agent to decode them. In case you are new to this puzzle type, here is a crash course in cryptography.
Each sentence is a coded message. The letters of the original message are replaced by their codes to form the new and confusing sentences.
