In this simplified version, a one-stage letter substitution is used to scramble a well-known or humorous quotation. Your task is to unravel the quotation by swapping letter pairs until the original message is restored.
You swap letter pairs by selecting a letter and then a second letter using the mouse or the keyboard. New: Lock any letter you know is right using the shift key.
The histogram shows
letter frequencies. Since E and T are the most common letters,
a good way to start is to make the most frequent letters in the histogram
E and T. Then look for words like THE, AND and A and keep swapping
letter pairs until words you recognize start to emerge.
