Code Puzzles Challenge - Can You Crack the Codes?

If you like code puzzles and trying to crack codes then we hope you'll enjoy our new series of ten videos each containing a code to crack that get gradually harder as you work your way through the series of puzzles. The first few videos are now available on youtube - here is a link to the first challenge which will then link through to the rest of the puzzles in the series as and when they are released:

The puzzles start gently so the first few codes should be accessible to children as well as adults, and the difficulty ramps up as the series progresses. Here's a hint for the first puzzle: you need to shift each letter in the code up or down the alphabet by one position - can you work out which way?

There are a range of different codes across the ten code-breaking challenges in the series, and you will need to use a variety of skills to crack them, together with some persistence and a little lateral thinking at times too. If you get stuck on the harder ones then don't give up, sleep on it and try coming at it from a different angle, or even discuss with others and pool ideas to work out how best to tackle it. With the harder ones you might need to try a few different approaches in order to find the correct methodology to decrypt the method and reveal the plaintext.

If you can solve puzzle nine and particularly puzzle ten, then congratulations - that is very impressive indeed! Let us know how you get on with them and any thoughts you have - we'd love to hear from you.

If you need hints for any of the puzzles then let us know and we can add some help below for any puzzles you are stuck on.

For any junior codebreakers out there, we hope to release a similar series of puzzles all aimed at the younger audience before too long. Is this something that you would be interested in? If so please do let us know.

And remember - if you enjoy our puzzle videos and the code puzzles challenge then please do subscribe to our channel to get notified when we release new content.
