    This is a little trickier than Hangman.

    What you do is you take a quote:
    "I have a bad feeling about this."

    And you replace one letter with another:
    "O rtjd t kti pddmoxq tkyas srol."

    So O = I, R = H, T = A, etc. You can encode it any way you like. Then you post that cryptoquote, and we get to try and guess it. Also, for everyone who guesses wrong, you get to post a hint, (i.e. "A = R" where A is in the cryptoquote and R is the answer. BTW, this does not apply to the following cryptoquote)

    Logic tends to be on your side, as the only two words that consist of one letter are "I" and "A", and "I" is always capitalized.

    I'll go first.

    If you just take the time and work it out, they're prety predictable. ;)

    I'm having a hard time because either the r should be an s or I'm doing this wrong.

    My biggest clue was the "Gwo-Vqf". Either it was Qui-Gon or Obi-Wan. Either way, if it worked, it would fit. Once it fit, the rest fell into place.

    Here's mine:

    (The bonus is NOT a Star Wars quote or reference in any way and uses a different crypt than the first one.)

    Got the regular one right--the bonus- here is a clue: Look at how many total letters are in the sentence and compare that number to how many unique letters there are.

    One hour and one minute after the post, it's solved. The longer ones tend to be easier.

    You're up again.
