This edition of PUZZLE JAZZ introduces a game called OFFBEAT CIPHERS. The object is to decode a series of messages where each code letter stands for a different letter in the decoded message. For example, the coded message:
SORT BLOB BEST could be decoded to read NAME THAT TUNE
where code letter S = decoded message letter N, O=A, R=M, T=E, B=T, L=H, and E=U.
The title and theme of this edition of the game is PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES. Each of the hidden messages to be decoded is a recognizable quote from a movie or novel, followed by the name of the character being quoted. The title of each puzzle Track is a further clue to solving the ciphers.
