Well looks like we’re well and truly stuck on this one. Either we’ve been set a deliberately fiendish one (maybe to keep us stumped till Elliott gets back from his trip!), or we’re missing something obvious. Here’s what we’ve got:
20 8 5 – 15 9 20 20 9 – 6 1 14 9 12 24
T H E – O I T T I F A N I L X
possibly translating as….
20 8 5 – 14 9 20 20 9 – 6 1 13 9 12 25
T H E – N I T T I F A M I L Y
as we have a Francisco Nitti on the Chenchey Staff page.
This gives us the ‘wrong’ letters ONX which are all plus or minus one position away from the corrected letter.
O to N is 15 to 14 = -1
N to M is 14 to 13 = -1
X to Y is 24 to 25 = +1
So we have the sequence -1 -1 +1
We also spent most of yesterday spotting the ‘deliberate’ (?) mistakes found all over the Chenchey website:
Three sets of repeated words:
to make to make
to make to make (repeated twice)
One missing word:
One word with an extra letter:
And two words with two letters in the wrong place:
Lastly we have two ‘broken’ links from names on the Staff page – Oleg Nosovi and Luis Soto. May not mean anything but working on the assumption that everything means SOMETHING in this game then they might be worth considering – why don’t these two names have working links when all the others do?
HOW all this fits together is completely escaping us. Any ideas??
