    This game takes alot of thinking. Basically, you think up a phrase. You replace each letter of the phrase with a random number which corresponds for the letter. For example, you can choose "4" for every "A" in your phrase, so you replace every "A" in the phrase with "4". You keep using random numbers for each different letter and make a full sentence of numbers. It is now the guessers turn to try and figure out the combination to unlock the cryptic quote.

    Example:

    "I Put My Trust In You, Pushed As Far As I Could Go."

    Let's say I choose "3" for "A". The sentence would now be:

    "I Put My Trust In You, Pushed 3s F3r 3s I Could Go."

    Now, you keep picking different numbers for each letter, if you pick "7" for "T", then the sentence would turn into:

    "I Pu7 My 7rus7 In You, Pushed 3s F3r 3s I Could Go."

    Just keep replacing each letter in the phrase with a number, and make sure that the number corresponds with every one of those letters in the sentence, otherwise, it's useless.

    Now, we know the sentence could be anything in the world from a bunch of gibberish to a song lyrics, so give one hint. If people ask for another hint, give them one, but be vague. You don't want to completely give it away.

    I'll start, you guys will learn along the way. Be sure to use proper punctuation, like commas and apostrophes. The numbers could be any number at all, they're not alphanumeric (ie: NOT a=1, b=2, etc).

    6' 4 9
    2 9 5 11 3 9
    7 11
    12 10 3 2,
    6
    5 8 12' 13
    16 9 9 1
    14 11 10
    13 15 9 17 9

    Hint: Linkin Park Lyric.

    It's from Meteora.

    Let's also make it a rule that you can ask me for one letter-number combination. 10 = U.

    If you want to do it that way, I guess it's fine. I was thinking more along the lines of figuring it out through hints and not by blindly guessing the numbers. :lol: But ok.

    Are you sure that'sa Lacuna Coil song? I checked the discography and they don't have any songs like that. Maybe you meant lyric.
