Inspector Ixolite of the Yard was investigating a murder at Nottonmye Manor.
It was a difficult case, and Ixolite was completely stumped until he noticed a message sent to him by the killer cunningly hidden in a newspaper advertisement selling Car Licence Plates.
Inspector Ixolite thought about it for a while, and when he had solved the puzzle, immediately arrested the guilty man.

Q1) How did Ixolite know the advert was a clue for him?

Q2) Solve the code and tell me who Ixolite arrested.

This is the newspaper advert (Car licence plates for sale) that Inspector Ixolite saw.

Plates For Sale;

[W 05 NWO]
[H 13 HSR ]
[O 05 EBM]
[D 08 UNE]
[U 10 HTY]
[N 04 BRE]
[N 16 TTE]
[I 26 LHC ]
[T 10 AEE]
[I 26 CNA]
[X 22 VDA]

I don't get it, where do u advance the W? Please explain. Anyway, good teaser.

Great teaser! I didn't see the "Advance each..." part, but I wasn't looking too hard after I found the answer. WhAcKo1 to advance, count forward in the alphabet and start at the beginning again if you hit Z. For example A advanced by 1 becomes B and E advanced by 5 becomes J.

Very interesting. Too hard for me.

Good one! You tend to look too hard to find the answer. VERY CHALLENGING! I salute you.

Good one; the advancing the letters of the message is a nice touch.

It's three puzzles in one. I got the first one easily enough, but the other two were just too hidden forme. Good puzzle, though.

Jun 17, 2003

Very cool! I kept looking from top to bottom though, trying to find the clue, so I missed it. Good one though!
brainjelly
Jun 17, 2003

Wow, I'm surprised most others thought this was so hard, I usually miss the other teasers that everyone gets, I'm either getting better or everyone else is having an off day. Great teaser, it was lot's of fun.

Extremely well done!.
I got the first one, and thougth of the advance trick but tried on the right side letters, so i did not get any valuable message. Good!
LilyBell

Very good! I thought the numbers stood for the letters of the alphabet. I would have never figured that out.

I find it interesting that any criminal would actually be stupid enough to write his name for the inspector to find. But great teaser anyway, I loved it!

Jun 22, 2004

i got the first part really easilly, but the rest, i just couldn't figure out in your answer, you said to read from the bottom up and LEFT TO RIGHT. actually, it should be from RIGHT TO LEFT and bottom up. but, oh well, i think we all knew what you were talking about! great teaser! very fun and tricky!

Usually, I have a hard time figuring out teasers. I might figured out part of a teaser but not the complete one.
However, I got this one pretty quick. I love mystery teasers like that.
Keep up the good work, Mr.Ixolite!
