# Riddle Number Six

Fiddle diddle diddle, time for another riddle. This is another little puzzle I've concocted for you all this evening. The scenario is this:

You awake in a small room with only one door. The door is sealed with a padlock, whose combination happens to be represented by letters. There are three letters needed to unlock the door. Inside the room with you is a table with a note and a chessboard. The note reads as followed:

-.-. .- ...- . .- .. .-. . .-.. | 75

.--. ..- -... ... -.- .. | 110

.-. . - --- .-- | 86

The chessboard is different than most, for it has numbers from 1-26 and random letters on the board:

So the riddle is to solve the padlock code and free yourself from this room. Whoever shall solve the riddle first will receive a small bounty of my own reputation. Good luck.

• The Morse Code translation and the numbers next to them will aid you in this puzzle. Solve those two conundrums and the rest will be easy. – Edward Nigma Dec 22 '18 at 9:15

Adding on to the Morse code translations:

PUBSKI is an anagram for BISKUP, which happens to be Polish for "bishop"; a chess piece. Similarly, "cavaliere" -> knight and "tower" -> rook.

Partial:

Hashes and Dots:

Translating from Morse Code -->:
"CAVEAIREL", "PUBSKI", and "RETOW".
They are anagrams of CAVALIERE, BISKUP, and TOWER
They are Knight, Bishop (in Polish), and Rook respectively (Credits @rhsquared & @Braegh)
(NOT: The words can be further divided into "Cave, Air, El, Pub, Ski, Re, Tow".)

Chessboard

may refer to a Caesar Square, and 1-26 may be mapped to letters (Credits @rhsquared)

• The Morse Code deciphering was easy enough, but what do the words mean? ;) – Edward Nigma Dec 15 '18 at 6:27

Further to the Morse code translation done by @OmegaKrypto:

I think the words might be anagrams.
CAVEAIREL -> CAVALIERE
PUBSKI -> ? (might be the Yiddish word BUPKIS which emphatically means nothing)
RETOW -> TOWER

Regarding the chessboard:

It is worth noting that the numbers go from 1 to 26 which probably means that they are mapped to letters.

• You are very close with the Morse translations. Two of them are indeed correct, however, bupkis is not. Also, why would I put such words in Morse? ;) – Edward Nigma Dec 20 '18 at 12:43

Continuing on what @rhsquared and @OmegaKrypton said I think:

CAVEAIREL -> CAVALIERE = Knight
PUBSKI -> Biskup = Bishop(?)
RETOW -> TOWER = Rook
I still don't know what the numbers mean, I tried adding up the value of each ie. a=1,b=2, but no success

so

maybe we need to follow their move (diagonally, across or knight move) on the chessboard

as for the letters and numbers

we have all the numbers 1-26
we only have 11 letters: N, R, E, U, Z, G, K, V, P, A, X

• Pirate, you are beginning to earn my respect! You have the clues, now you just need to put them together! ;) – Edward Nigma Dec 21 '18 at 3:41
