The Enigma Cipher Challenge has started. Goal is to decipher ten messages, encrypted with the Enigma machine. Each of the ten stages is a bit harder to solve as the previous. To participate, you have to break the stages, one by one, and mail me the translation. Of course, you'll need to translate them, since they are in German. You'll face the same problems as the codebreakers did in Bletchley Park. There will be a table of honor, where you can find the names of the top codebreaker, participating in the game. For the content of some messages, I tried to stay as close as possible to the historical facts. You might find help or clues in your WW2 history books or on the internet. Hope to get you in our codebreakers team...and Good Luck!
