    Sorry, certificates are generated after the end of each round. Should try to make that more explicit I guess!

    Ah! That makes (some) sense! Is there any way to hide/remove the ‘get your certificate’ button until each round is over?

    Probably, but instead we are making the certificates available early for now. Could you check again to see if you have still not got yours?

    Looking at the leaderboard, the function to filter by school looks very useful (especially for teachers!) – why do all the school names have an ‘A’ appended to the end?

    A bug, not a feature! Thanks for pointing it out.

    In the part A, in the decrypting bar A, as the numbers are all the odd numbers, shouldn’t there be a 13 between 11 and 15?

    Excellent question, to which the answer is, surprisingly, No!

    What is it that the even numbers 2-24 have in common with 13?

    All the best,

    Harry

    Hi,

    The link to: Programming for Cryptologists 101 pdf, by Julian Bhardwaj from

    <https://www.cipherchallenge.org/resources/lesson-plan/&gt;

    Returns the cryptic message “404 Not Found”….

    Hi Harry,

    Thanks for fixing that link. There’s a similar issue on…

    Resources & Media.

    The link for “PROGRAMMING FOR CRYPTOLOGISTS 101”, “Download programming guide” also returns 404 Not Found.

    Regards,

    Another excellent catch. Hope it works now.

    Thank you,

    Madness,
    At : https://github.com/themaddoctor/BritishNationalCipherChallenge/tree/master/2015/8B
    you have…
    13H,9H,8S,4C,5C,3S,
    4D,13S,7D,13C,A,3D,
    4H,1S,12H,8H,4S,1D,
    2S,7C,1H,5S,1C,6C,
    7H,2D,B,10H,5D,11D,
    3C,9C,12S,11H,10D,0,
    0,0,0,0,0,0,
    0,12D,0,0,0,0,
    0,0,6H,0,3H,0
    Here, “0” denotes an unknown value, 11 = jack, 12 = queen, 13 = king, A = joker A, B = joker B, C = clubs, D = diamonds, H = hearts, S = spades.

    I have a image of the above cards showing the following
    13H,9H,8S,4C,5C,3S,
    4D,13S,7D,13C,A,3D,
    4H,1S,12H,8H,4S,1D,
    2S,7C,1H,5S,1C,6C,
    7H,2D,B,10H,5D,11D,
    3C,9C,12S,11H,10D,7S,
    X,X,X,6D,X,X,
    6S,12D,X,X,X,X,
    X,X,6H,11C,3H,X
    Were all X are card backs.
    Hope this helps.

    @The-letter-wriggler,
    That sounds like it was the second hint. I don’t have that image, so would you please go to
    https://github.com/themaddoctor/BritishNationalCipherChallenge/issues/1
    and upload the image? Then I will add it to the archive. Thanks a lot!

    @The-letter-wriggler, any chance you or someone at your school/club/wherever still has a copy of the cards from 2010?

    Madness, thanks to my colleague Jim Renshaw we have been able to reproduce the crib images for 2010 as requested. You can download them as a zip file here:

    https://www.cipherchallenge.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/solitaire.zip

    Let me know if that is what you needed.

    Best,

    Harry
