Where will the two jokers go though?

Either at the end, the start, or perhaps in place of a couple of other cards, thus possibly changing the message? That's how jokers are normally used, right? In place of another card you don't have......

surely the message itself IS the puzzle? The prime numbered cards make a deck, and when you place them in suit and number order, top to bottom, the corners spell letters.
Its a bit like looking at a wordsearch, solving it and asking where the puzzle is...

Then why exactly 54 primes? so far no card has been seen twice. so it WILL be a complete deck with two Jokers when its done.

The Card solution may only be from the info on the card itself... but there is NO WAY This is a coincidence If its not explicitly used in the shuffled puzzle, then there is a sub puzzle connected to this somehow. If it was the message alone then Why the two jokers?... 4 cards per letter 54 cards is 2 extra cards.
So its not JUST the message either.

The ordering of these cards will be important...

PS: That being said im always wrong about every feeling i have about ARGs. These games freeking hate me...

No, because we have been told that each puzzle is individual. We don't need one card to help solve another. And Von's hint for this card was that everything we needed could be found on it.

I get this feeling that the completed message will mean nothing... BUT...

Can somone post the order of the deck? ... Perhaps im not seeing the whole picture and this makes no sense. But it sounds like we have Suits and Numbers for each of these letters. Whats the Order?

It may be that the order is normal card order. Then perhaps its the order
these cards appear in the set. Aka card number "blah" is Heart-6 or card "blah2" is Spade-Ace Thus we could order them in numerical order and come out with a specific sorted deck of playing cards.

What im trying to do is build an ordered deck from these cards.
If we can come up with a ordered deck of cards. we can use that to decipher the text on the "Shuffled" silver card. Then we dont need a key word to key the deck as it will already be keyd by the order.

So far weve been digging for a keyword. ... and perhaps, there isnt one.

It's my opinion that Sente was involved in the group who DIDNT manage to steal it's theft attempt (as inside info and such), and Violet was/is involved in the group who DID steal it, ie The Third Power. Or maybe the other way round. But I reckon they both wanted it taken for seperate reasons.

Pardon if this sounds presumptuously stupid and far too simplistic for the Third Power to do (as I believe it is), but do the use of playing cards as the message key, along with the code name V and the night of the theft, all mesh suspiciously well with Violet's affinity for poker, first name/leaked e-mail nickname, and supposed illness, respectively?

Now, I've been following this thing for a few months, along with keeping with the history of past events, and I know how underhandedly sneaky, manipulative, and downright clever the Third Power is at times (though not as clever as us, surely). Surely nobody elected onto this theft team would be so blatantly stupid as to reveal their nature so outright. Unless, of course, this is meant to frame Violet after being revealed and presumed true by less intelligent thinkers. Especially since she's gone to such lengths to help us and vice versa.

Of course, there's the chance that Violet was a key participant, and some sort of crazy, super-evil Single/Double Reverse Psychology [BLEEP] is going on here.

We don't know that; they may never have held it, but it does seem to be in the possession of the Third Power, the group who, to the best of our current knowledge, sent the four to steal it. It is within the realm of possibilities that 'C' could have hacked into the Mind Candy computers and added the message spanning the cards.

Just trout myself there, the team consisting of V, K, Q and C did not steal the cube.

I don't think that this will lead directly to the location of the cube. But I think it might be a message from, and lead to the identity of, C.

That bit is a guess though insn't it?

I stole the cube. Help me, Scarlet, blahblah,
or even,
I stole the cube, help me scrub it clean. It is very dirty.

oppssss

just wrote it down again it might

I stole the cube help M esc....ape (might be the next letters)

does that mean anything to anyone

Posted: Mon Dec 05, 2005 2:03 pm

letters

It looks like the next letters in the clue might be :

1st letter S or C or G

2nd letter C or O (this one looks more like a previouse C) which means letter 1 would have to be an S

which means the next word could be school scene etc etc

OK. Double posting just to get this noticed. I've pieced together the letters again, with the new cards on them. The message reads (at the moment)
 Quote: I S T O L E T H E C U B E H E L P M E
so I stole the cube help me is the message.
There are a few prime cards I don't have, so if you do, please add them to the wiki!
Edit: updated the wiki to reflect this.
