Argh, some of these are driving me mad!

#1, #2 and #4: done
#3 and #6: I’ve figured out the cypher, but not how to decrypt it
#5: I have no idea, it looks “binary-ish” (apart from all those 2s), think I’ll have to sleep on it!

One question: For cipher 6, the text is black (whereas the others are white), is this a mistake or is it significant?

@huib.schoots, do you want to give Neil a hand? :face_with_monocle:

Black text was a simple joke: to make it “a little extra” difficult. If you can’t find the text, you can’t solve it :wink:

Binary is a good thought! What coding is binary? And what else could those 2’s mean?
