Terin's Perplexity Emporium

Life is a Boomerang.  What you give, you get.

To celebrate finally winning a game since 2018... I am going to start giving away games on a regular basis but behind some puzzles, quiz, and other various perplexities... They might take you over the internet or just even closer. Most of the games will be from bundles but they might not always be...

The formatting of this post will likely evolve over time but most times I will post what games are involved and how to start. We will see where this goes and let me know if you have any ideas or thoughts on it.

Hope you all had fun!

Lol, while attempting the Revolver360 Reactor one, I found a 3 year old giveaway.
That code seems new to me and I don't know if I'm on the right track.

Just double checked... pretty sure if done correctly it will lead to an active Giveaway.

Curious how you go to a 3 year old giveaway, wasn't one of mine?

It's simple but how do you want me to explain it? I just can't write it out here in case I'm accidentally spoiling a close solution.

That's fair. Once you solve it we can discuss in the giveaway!

Ah, thanks - should have through of that, but I was looking at the Cesar Cypher because it was Roman numerals (though doesn't allow for special characters)

Don't beat yourself up too much, I knew of course about ROT-13 but had no idea such a thing as ROT-47 existed. I only found about it after googling "cypher 47". :P
