Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

Initial guess: due to the commas and even numbers of numbers per grouping, maybe each pair of numbers is a character.

Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

I was just about to start this thread, but I had to make sure they hadn't gone mad in the last one.

I haven't the cryptography skills of the rest of CD, and a simple Google search for the numbers doesn't seem to bring anything conclusive.

EDIT: Okay, first try. taking all of the 3s in the hint gives
3- -------3, ---3-----3--
---3-3---3-- -----33---
3- ---3-3-3-3--, 33-3-----3--
-3-------3-3-- ---3-3---3--

And the number of digits between successive 3s or breaks is:
1 7, 3-5-2
3-1-3-2 5-0-3
1 3-1-1-1-2, 0-1-5-2
1-7-1-2 3-1-3-2

And in that series:
2, 2
1-1 2
1-4, 4
4 1-1

I'm probably completely wrong, but I'm running with it.

Three alliances maybe?

I'm assuming non of the numbers are coordinates, since a game hint in the past contains coordinates... Or these *are* coordinates and they're playing reverse psychology on us?

Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

Well, it wouldn't have anything to do with Base 3 encoding, possibly reversed, with something special at the end, right?

Gentlemen, whip out your scripting tools.

Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

They seem to be segments of Pi. Try running them through here and seeing what the places are, and then we might have a string of numbers that could translate to letters.

Code:
31__88 27 41 53,_62 23 41 41 53 26
00__34 28 02 08,_21 16 02 02 08 06
41 23 83 97 53 88__97 88 53 31 97

31__26 23 83 83 53 88,_33 23 41 41 53 26

93 27 64 26 23 83 97__99 53 23 97 93 97
It won't be directly translated into words, still.

Pi is related to circles,
Circular field?
Circular game piece?

Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

I just realised some number sequences repeat themselves...
31 obviously
2383 appears three times, second row first number, third row second number (31 as a different number), fourth row first number.
5388 twice, second row first number, third row second number. Both two digits apart from a 2383.

First row last number seems to be identical to third row last number, apart from the first two digits (62 in the first and 33 in the second).

I'm afraid only 31 and 88274153 were found by the website... But I think it may have somehing to do with it. Maybe each number represents a letter and 88274153 stands for "P"?
