What are "trivia cryptograms"? Cryptograms are word puzzles that feature encrypted sentences solvers must decipher to reveal a message. Within the sentence or phrase, each letter is consistently replaced with a new letter (for instance, "Star Wars" might be encoded as "THIS LIST"--where A's have been replaced with I's, R's have been replaced with S's, and so forth). The solving process for cryptogram puzzles exercises both sides of the brain, as logic and letter patterns come into play in tandem. With Trivia Cryptograms, author Stanley Newman has designed each puzzle so the decoded messages are little-known facts and trivia sure to delight the solver. (For instance, did you know light bulbs in NYC's subway system turn in the opposite direction from standard bulbs, to discourage people from stealing them?)
