Solving cryptoquotes gives the brain a good workout! We think you'll especially enjoy solving the ones here.
Remember that in all cryptograms, each letter shown represents another letter of the alphabet. For example, X might represent J. That doesn’t mean that J represents X. But it does mean that every X will always represent J within the same puzzle.
