On the Subject of Bamboozled Again
Ruining friendships since 1992.
Section 0: General info
On the module is a display cycling between 8 words/phrases encrypted in boozleglyph, 6 buttons and 4 LEDs. To solve the module, press the correct button at the correct time for 4 stages.
Pushing a button will cause the leftmost unlit LED to lit up. The module will submit the input after the last press. The LEDs will change colors, conveying the accuracy of your answer.
- Red: The wrong button was pressed at the wrong time.
- Yellow: The right button was pressed at the wrong time or the wrong button was pressed at the right time.
- Green: The right button was pressed at the correct time.
The LEDs can also be pressed to change the cycling of the display:
- Left: Move to the previous display.
- Right: Move to the next display.
- Middle-left: Resume the cycle.
- Middle-right: Stop the cycle.
Section 1: The display
Each display has its own values A, B, C, S, T. Only the T value will be needed for the next sections. Any spaces are replaced by a '#'.
Decrypt the display using Table 1.1 and Table 1.2 to get its raw text. A display will only ever use 1 set of glyphs. The raw text will always be surrounded by a pair of symbols and may contain symbols in it.
The B value of a display can be found by Caesar shifting its content B steps forward until it resembles a possible phrase in the table below. Its content may have been moved to the left. Do shift the symbols too, find the original symbol on Table 1.2 and move up (B%8) rows. The row you stopped on contains the decrypted symbol. If B=0, B is actually equal to 26.
Note the symbols that surround the text, then remove it. Afterwards, the A value can be found by counting the number of times you need to move the last letter/symbol to the front until it becomes a proper quote that’s in Table 2.
Finally, the C value can be found underneath the set of glyph used to encrypt the text.
Tip: You actually don’t need the A, B, C, S, T values for display 2 and 4, and you don’t need the symbols that surround text 1, 3 and 5.
