Default I give up

Is there an "I give up" option available? I can (usually) struggle through the puzzle, but would like the ability to press something like CTL-D (for Dummy) and have the puzzle solved.

I wish there was an "I give up" button, too. Unfortunately, you have to slog through it or be forever wondering what the quote was.

Default A little trick...

You may also try something. May take a little time, but will get you to solve to puzzle.

The puzzles typically list a source. If the source is an actual name, search the name followed by the word "quotes". Go through a few sites that list the quotes and compare them with the puzzle to see which fits. Again, it's a little time-consuming, but in most cases, will get the job done.

Default Calling it quits

... I just can't find it in me to walk away once I started one of these puzzles...lol. I would rather get a low score and walk away satisfied that I met the challenge. I will admit that some of these cryptograms can be a real challenge but that what I like about this website!

Default solve it!

Google cryptogram solver.
There are web sites out there where you can type in your cryptogram and it will solve it for you.
