Cryptograms are a great source of the “aha!” moment. These “crypto-lists” up the fun and the challenge. Rather than just figuring out a pithy quotation, solvers have to decipher an entire list of encoded words, phrases, titles, or names that fit a category—like Bathtime, Greek Gods, Headgear, and “Weird Al” Yankovic Parodies. Fill in a few letters, and a pattern emerges; everything clicks, and the message becomes clear. And, just to make things a little harder, sometimes you have to come up with the category, too!

About the Author:

Scott Weiss teaches computer science and mathematics at Mount Saint Mary's University in Emmitsburg, MD. He has consistently finished in the top 20 solvers at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. In 2007, he wagered so as to cause the only non-zero three-way tie in the history of Jeopardy!. This is his first puzzle book. Scott lives in Walkersville, MD, with his wife and children.
