I'm still trying to figure out how Collin sent the letter to the code master if he's in the past and the code master is in the present

Well I still think he got hit and knocked out. Woke up thinking he is in the past and is writing letters and wondering lost around the country.

For all the hits you take on here, this is a great point.

I mean, it's a very big possibility. Especially after reading the backstory card in the OP.

But I guess it also depends on the "nature" of these Ginter codes
Were the codes for previous years based on fantasy or reality?

Think back to the future. Doc brown wrote a letter to be delivered to Marty at the exact time and location in 1955

Yeah but how do we know that the letter will stay in the exact spot for over 120 years?

What if the spot where Collin placed the letter was burned down in 1890 or flooded in 1930?

I can maybe understand if the letter was hidden in an underground safe place or buried somewhere secluded (like with Bender in Futurama). But just placing a letter on a desk in the same spot doesn't guarantee that the future recipient will recieve it and judging by all of the things that can happen to that spot in the span of 120 years, it seems the odds are stacked against it staying there.

I wonder when the second letter will be released. I expect some questions we have now will be made slightly clearer when that one comes out, IMO......

or it will just confuse us even more

And I feel comfortable that anyone with the wherewithal to crack my code most likely has a good enough head on their shoulders not to abuse the information they have been given.
anybody care to help me with scan of the back?

looks like this year we need to have some cards in hands if want to try crack the code. Well this is seems not easy task for me as i live in Asia.

Not sure if this has any relevance to anything but I noticed that the top left pattern in the Vikings changes from a dark green to a lighter shade.

Where I have circled in red:

Wow, where did you find that mini??

The new blog is interesting, and confirms what Matt has been trying to do recently: level the playing field by controlling when the code starts, and extend its lifetime by sprinkling the clues over weeks/months. Looking forward to the next post!!

Is that supposed to be a queen? Really?

And I thought it was a beheaded person hanging on the Viking's shoulder. I don't think it's randomly put there. Is it?

Yeah I know. "Head on the shoulders" and the Viking has a head on his shoulder. But what I'm trying to know is how does this card relate to the code.

We need someone to oust the back of it.

Obviously nobody know why it's there for now, it's a mystery to be solved.

I think you should read first how FrankL cracked the 2011 code in his blog http://noitulosedocretnig1102.blogsp...-or-how-i.html

this year seems to be marathon again like 2011.

"Although many popular conceptions are exaggerated and romanticized, the Vikings remain a source of fascination."

The exact same thing could be applied for time travel.

"as there are clues herein as well"

Do you guys think that there are enough clues in this letter to move on to the next step, or do we have to wait for a new tweet/letter?
