    Two-In-One

    This is 2 separate puzzles:

    The upper half of the picture is an ODD ONE OUT puzzle. Just determine which of the five items do not belong with the other four and why.

    The bottom half is a book title with a bit of crypto mixed in. See if you can decipher the title.

    If you need them, hints:

    Q1 - <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Shapes & Shades do not matter, pay attention to the content.</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Q2 - <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>This one's too easy for a hint, but don't look for your normal cryptogram here...</font color=yellow></span hi>

    I say the brown CDU, because the rest all have straight lines.

    Re: Two-In-One

    Thanks for trying MJ, but that's not a correct guess. In fact, the blue box has rounded corners. Try Again!

    Re: Two-In-One

    Wow - Karen nailed it. I was beginning to think this one would go unsolved... <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Now, Can you decipher the book title?

    Re: Two-In-One

    Another hint for Q2. - <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>This is not a typical cryptogram where one letter is substituted for another. You'll have to take a second look to "break the code".</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Re: Two-In-One

    I've never been good with cryptograms... anagrams yes! For instance, the one solved here has an anagram flavor and took a little less than 9 minutes. Sequencing and pattern recognition, generally not bad. Part 1 of this only took a few minutes, but I've been traveling a lot lately so the look-up required to solve it made sense to me... I've been having to do it a lot lately anyway. I'm afraid the book title is beyond my ken, and need be accomplished by someone other than I.

    Re: Two-In-One

    I probably messed up by representing Q2 has a cryptogram. A cryptogram, in true fashion, is simply a substitution of one letter for another. This is not "that". I should have said that it is a book title in disguise . Study the letter pattern and I bet you'll see it instantly. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Re: Two-In-One

    Yup, though I confess I had read the entire thread before I actually started trying to figure it out (my default is flat mode so it's too tempting not to! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>)
