I've learnt 3 things from this card
1) I can't make cootie catchers
2) Perplex City cards don't fold very well
3) The template on the card is too small

If you want to find the directions more easily on the origami pages they are known more often as Salt Cellars, as upside - down they hold salt and pepper and the like.[quote

I knew what to do as soon as I saw the card.
These were sometimes called colour changers when I was a kid.
I even remembered how to make them! V sad.

I used a copy machine at work and enlarge the card x2 (but a bit bigger might have been better).
Incidentally, copying some cards with a photo-copier makes some card images look quite different - like when you photo-copy a doctor's prescription or a fancy check and hidden text appears saying "COPY". This might be an interesting concept for a future solve....
I have copied several cards, like the Mind_Sweeper one and some of the mazes. I think with my pencil, and I don't want to mark up my cards.
I spent a TON of time looking for a solution beyond the two words that were rather easily revealed. I noticed a few things - the most important of which is that there are not enough vowels for common words, so a code/cypher is more likely.
My question is - should we be pursuing this now, or wait for more information?

Cootie catcher, eh? Never knew there was an actual name for the things util I read that one... I got the idea as soon as I saw it though... Then had to spend time looking up how to fold one up!!

Hi guys first post to these forums,
As to the further letters in the catcher, run them through an anagram program or site
Gives an interesting message.
