Legend Masters Essential Handy Dandy Decoder Ring - Coroplast

Regular price $300.00

Tax included.

"Great for hiding secret codes in plain sight!"

-Myself, If I Do Say So, Esq.

 

Now you can use a common deck of playing cards to communicate secret messages at your next family reunion, birthday party, or office get-together.

These nearly four-foot masterpieces are explicitly designed to be lightweight and hang easily so your whole gang can play along, no matter how big the room is!

Think outside the box to add depth to neighborhood scavenger hunts, night games or what have ye!

 

THIS PLAYFUL KIT INCLUDES:
• 2X somewhat flexible, weather resistant corrugated plastic pieces

 - The CORE is a cipher wheel with alphanumerics, eight symbols, and a black and quite square for easy yes-and-no indications (see below).

 - A second piece, called The REVOLVER allows for re-sequencing the cipher for more challenging puzzles.

• A SPINDLE to connect the two pieces (supplies vary)

(Playing card deck not included!)

 

HOW TO USE THE CIPHER WHEEL
Use a sequence of cards associated with characters, reading either left to right or up to down.

+ YOU PROVIDE A WORD, SET OF NUMBERS OR LETTERS, OR A WEBSITE OR SOMETHING. THE INFO IS UP TO YOU!

+ 52 cards make for easy correlation between common characters in the alphabet (WITH AN UPPERCASE BIAS THAT PRECLUDES lower case characters) and numbers with a deck of common playing cards. Not all decks will apply equally.

+ Perfect for encoding words, numbers and websites!

+ PROTIP: This method of encoding and decoding requires some work, so please be sure to make sure the prizes you give at the end (if any) make it worth it.


ADD THE REVOLVER FOR MORE COMPLEX GAMEPLAY!

 

+ Add the REVOLVER to the CORE with a connecting SPINDLE or your own connector and rotate the REVOLVER until you on the SPINDLE until it lines up with a combination you are satisfied with.

Make a note of the position of one currently corresponding character and card. This is your KEY to decipher the message later, so don't lose it!

 

 

A FEW SUGGESTIONS ON LEAVING THE KEY SOMEWHERE

+ Write one correlating letter on one of the placed cards. Kind of a cheap move.

+ Write one correlating letter on one unused card and hide it in a box with a combination lock somewhere, and give people a map to try to find it. If you're not good at making maps, would you like to consult us about making treasure maps for your party?

+ Hide an unused card next to, say, a little ceramic sculpture or keychain or painting that indicates a letter or number somewhere nearby, or hide it for more depth.
EXAMPLE: Associate the first letter of the name of an object, such as the Eiffel Tower with a card nearby.

+ Use additional objects as hints. Let's say you have five cups. Two are red, three are blue. A hint you wrote on a piece of paper and taped it to the wall could say (scribbled in your best handwriting in crayon of course) "How many red cups does the queen have?" or something like that. That can indicate the queen lines up with the number two on the wheel, and that would be a helpful hint if it were to be solved indeed!

+ Do a magic trick or series of tricks and reveal a sequence of cards that turn out to mean something later!

+ PROTIP: Use a domain shortener to shorten long website names for your event.

 

USING THE ADDITIONAL SHAPES AND SYMBOLS

We left numeric symbols listed from one to eight, clockwise, and there are two squares at the upper left and right of the CORE, respectively. The upper left square is black, and the upper right square is white. You can indicate a yes or no question or affinity by degrees by indicating how close to white or black an indicated card is by referencing how close it is to one or the other square when listed by assignment to some rotation you've elected.

For ease of use, we say white means yang or yes, and black means yin or no.
