    $\begingroup$ The title likely references this usage of the word: spoiler. $\endgroup$ – noedne Apr 2 '19 at 3:26
  • $\begingroup$ Yep, @noedne is correct; same goes for the flavortext. BTW there’s a better solution to #5 that I’m thinking of, but the rest of them are correct $\endgroup$ – HTM Apr 2 '19 at 3:47
  • $\begingroup$ I also considered (G)ubfr (rot13), if that's what you're looking for? $\endgroup$ – Matthew Barber Apr 2 '19 at 4:09
  • $\begingroup$ @MatthewBarber That’s the one! I wrote the puzzle in a few minutes, so some of the clues were a bit weak. Perhaps a better clue would’ve been something like rot13(pne jnfure’f pbzznaq). In any case, I’ll give you the check mark after a day or so, so stay tuned for that! $\endgroup$ – HTM Apr 2 '19 at 6:31
