Seems as if I've left you all a little puzzle for today. It's a simple cipher that I'm sure you can all deduce. Everything you need is provided in the image. Have fun everyone!

  • $\begingroup$ Could you use a little more descriptive naming scheme for your puzzles, please and thank you. $\endgroup$ – Bass Dec 17 '18 at 16:57
  • $\begingroup$ How so? These are but riddles, entwined in an enigma, wrapped in a mystery ;) $\endgroup$ – Edward Nigma Dec 18 '18 at 9:35
  • $\begingroup$ maybe add visual tag as well? $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Dec 18 '18 at 11:32


Decryption Method

Reading upside down, the bottom of the image shows "vigenere", and upright bottom left, "Cipher". Therefore, we may need to use Vigenere Cipher, with the key, according to the top right corner, "riddle 6 answer" (which, sadly, has not been solved... :( )(credits to @Dorrulf)

Other Words

middle, upside down: bald
middle, upside down, in triangle: uxye

"Reflect On This" Box

Maybe put a mirror there? But that doesn't work; I tried it. Maybe the inverted question marks in the box vs the big two outside the box on two sides are hints?


1. The outwards arrow on the C in Cipher
2. The scribbling on the key
3. The 3 dots under 'w' above the big ? on the right

  • $\begingroup$ I believe it actually says the answer to riddle six is the key for this one. $\endgroup$ – Dorrulf Dec 17 '18 at 18:01
  • $\begingroup$ Good eye Dorrulf ;) As for Omega, the path is simple, yet may seem vague ;) $\endgroup$ – Edward Nigma Dec 18 '18 at 9:34


Here is the image flipped vertically and horizontally. I believe much of the encoded text should be read in this manner.

  • $\begingroup$ There's a reason I did what I did haha $\endgroup$ – Edward Nigma Dec 18 '18 at 22:30
  • $\begingroup$ I guess a lot of it could be read both ways with different outcomes. I guess I should've stated this is a possible perspective for some of the words. $\endgroup$ – Dorrulf Dec 18 '18 at 22:31
  • $\begingroup$ Here's a hint I'll provide. My hint is that I reflected this riddle in my own way, but most of it is in the correct order. As for the word bald, a coincidence. $\endgroup$ – Edward Nigma Dec 18 '18 at 22:33
