    Time for another challenge. In response to prior comments, I tried to make this one more difficult. (Be careful what you wish for!) This one also has a chance to earn “extra credit.”

    The following message also contains a secret message for those who can decode it. If you figure it out, you will know what to do to prove that you “get the message.” WARNING: This is meant to be a challenge, it may take awhile to “get it.” There is a definite message, you won’t have to wander around wondering if you got it. Once you get it (if you are up to the challenge), you will know for sure and be able to prove it for sure.

    (If you’d like to see the earlier similar secret message puzzles (with their solutions revealed at the end of the thread), here are the links:

    I call this message “Waltz Step”

    Looks like you’re getting the benefit of learning to waltz too. This thread just keeps on giving!

    #33 6 days ago

    is that a hint !

    #34 6 days ago

    No, just commenting on your diagram. This is a tougher puzzle, and I’m not going to spoil it for anyone, especially after the time it took to put this one together. And you’re not alone, I imagine there are still a number of pinsiders out there who have been trying to figure this one out!

    Don't give up on it! I was in your shoes a weekend ago, and ultimately figured it out. It's a well done brain teaser.

    #42 4 days ago

    I was lost at first, frustrated and wondering if I shouldn't have asked for a harder one. Then it came to me what to try while I wasn't even thinking about it, days later!

    #44 4 days ago

    Tried several related permutations, including reverse engineering, and kicked myself when I finally got the right one.

    I’ve tried to make it difficult to reverse engineer these after the first challenge. Glad you figured it out!

    #47 3 days ago

    A dozen have cracked the code so far, anyone else?

    Any more sleuths?

    Not for lack of trying…

    I seem to think I have a pattern with some words coming up and then bam… nothing.
