November 2014 Competition - Fastest Solver Challenge

We hold a series of competitions each month for those players who wish to play competitively. Each monthly competition will end at 12.01am on the 1st of every month, with trophies being awarded to the top 20 ranked players in each individual competition. Not yet on the list? Keep trying! It takes both skill and determination to make it to the Cryptograms Hall of Fame!

Here are the latest results for this month's Fastest Solver Challenge.
