Enigmatic Code

Programming Enigma Puzzles

2018 in review

Happy New Year from Enigmatic Code!

There are now 1,239 Enigma puzzles on the site, along with 61 from the Tantalizer series and 60 from the Puzzle series (and a few other puzzles that have caught my eye). There is a complete archive of Enigma puzzles published between January 1979 to September 1988, and from May 1999 up to the final Enigma puzzle in December 2013, which make up about 69.3% of all the Enigma puzzles published. Of the remaining 553 puzzles I have 125 left to source (numbers 900 – 1024).

In 2018, 105 Enigma puzzles were added to the site (and 26 Tantalizers, 26 Puzzles, and 3 others, so 160 puzzles in total).

Here is my selection of the puzzles that I found most interesting to solve over the year:

Older Puzzles (from 1987 – 1988)


Newer Puzzles (from 1999 – 2000)


Other Puzzles


Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the site in 2018, either by adding their own solutions (programmatic or analytical), insights or questions, or by helping me source puzzles from back-issues of New Scientist.
