# Cryptography with painted cells

I really have no idea what is going on in this puzzle, but what I know is that I'm getting cookies for solving this. I thought you might be interested in trying to solve it. Thanks everyone!

• Welcome to Puzzling! Is this from an ongoing competition? – Deusovi Jan 10 '18 at 20:45
• $2^5 > 26$, so that fits quite well with columns being characters... the empty are likely spaces. Didn't investigate, just a hunch. – Carl Löndahl Jan 10 '18 at 23:22
• thanks! it's not a competition, it's actually just a extra credit thing in my class haha – David David Jan 10 '18 at 23:40
• @David david, are these puzzle typically taught in class? I really envy as there is no such puzzle class (or even club) in my country I guess, haha. – athin Jan 11 '18 at 1:28
• Thanks everyone! And yeah, we were not taught this in class. – David David Jan 16 '18 at 1:56
