Someone posted this on the Logic Puzzles (http://logic-puzzles.org/) site, and I thought you all would enjoy it. (Credit to geecee.)

See pdf in attached zip file.

In most cryptos, each letter of the alphabet is replaced with a different letter. This one's a bit different. Instead, each letter is replaced with its corresponding number on the telephone keypad. That is:

2 = A, B, C

3 = D, E, F

4 = G, H, I

5 = J, K, L

6 = M, N, O

7 = P, Q, R, S

8 = T, U, V

9 = W, X, Y, Z

The upside: there are only 3 or 4 options for each number. The downside: two numbers with the same value are not necessarily the same letter. For example, CAB would be 222.

I was able to solve it, so it's not too difficult. I think you'll like it. Good luck!
