Crypto! selects a quote or phrase and encrypts it by scrambling the letters (for example, A stands for M, B stands for H, etc.) To solve the cryptogram, you have to figure out what the letters stand for. On the right you will see a list of the letters that haven't yet been used, a table showing the letter frequencies in the puzzle, and the number of hints used and time elapsed so far. You can also print puzzles, if you so choose.
