1.1 (Literature) – Caesar’s novel


Decrypt the title of this well-known novel:

YMJ HFYHMJW NS YMJ WDJ



3.4 (Movies) – Of all the bars


The classic movie Casablanca is set during wartime, when conveying secrets safely was particularly important. Casablanca is also an unusual word because of the number of times it features the letter A. Our codemaker, inspired by watching
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, has designed a cipher which involves choosing a single letter which will appear repeatedly in the enciphered message. The message is simply found by taking each of the letters that appears immediately after the repeated letter. Unfortunately, she didn’t say what
that repeated letter is.

OF EFFORT, GEORGE, UNDER NO ILLUSIONS OF
VANITY.



8.9 (Astronomy) – Edmond’s enigma


These numbers are a selection from a series (there are some
gaps): 1066, 1145, 1456, 1682 and 1986.

What numbershould immediately follow 1682?
