Me being fluent in Spanish would be able to tell if it was in Spanish. I think the idea is to solve the letters like you should and then realise the language is foreign.

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?
It appears that NCSO took down their Code Busters practice tests from last year ( :( ), but I believe that on those, they did explicitly state which one was in Spanish. I assume that other states would follow that format.

When I took the test at regionals, they do state the type of cipher you have to solve it for. Xenocrypts are ciphers in a different language, so when they say solve this xenocrypt you know it's going to be Spanish.

Then again, it's also helpful to have at least one Hispanic person so you don't have to struggle on learning a new language or risking some points.

Hey everyone. The rules for Codebusters at nats this year say that competitors MIGHT be asked to encrypt, not decrypt, with the affine, Hill, and Vigenere ciphers. Does this mean we won't be asked to to decrypt the aforementioned, or that we probably won't?
