According to Chalker, Code Busters will also be a National Trial Event this year (tentative) and is currently on the SOSI schedule, replacing Game On for next year (also tentative).

It's a real event in NC (and WI I think). More resources can be found here (including a whole twitter account for it -- pretty cool).

Honestly this event is really fun. It's more math-based as some ciphers require knowledge of advanced math and generally you need to know statistics (like letter frequency and such).

I got super hyped that this event was going to be finding code vulnerabilities, XSS, SQL server injection, et cetera, but then I realized it was cryptography. My emotions :) :| :( :) after which I thought "cryptography isn't that bad".

Same, I had to jump back in a Sassy game to get back in the habit of solving ciphers :lol: . I know how to code pretty well but unless it's something more like Game On it's not all that interesting to me- this seems like it will be fun!

Do you guys think that if there IS a Spanish cryptogram, they would label it as being in a different language?
