Also doesn't hurt to crowd-source it a bit.  Maybe PM another person who has posted here that still hasn't solved it.  Maybe bouncing ideas off someone in the same place as you will work.  I know that's what helped me.

^^^^^This.

I worked with a buddy of mine who is a bit of a crypto-geek and was working on the matchbook as well.  Definitely helped with bouncing theories/ideas off of each other.

ZIM964,

You're probably getting close. If you're lost after deciphering you may need to start over or adjust a little. Double check your work. If you solve it things will be clear...

Got it, had to tweak it and it's all very clear. Awesome stuff!

I know this is old, but I just found mine again today and am trying my hand at it again. Frustrating!

Last wish? I wish... You had... More time.

I've never really thought much about codes and deciphering. I've struggled with this, but when it clicked, it clicked. The worst part is that it was just like most said, walk away then come back and within five minutes I had it. Where was that months ago? I now have a notebook full of gibberish but it was worth it!

Received one of the matchbooks through the grapevine last week. Finally got a chance to sit down and tackle it. It was a hell of a lot of fun.

I've had one of the matchbooks for about a month now... racked my brain for a couple of days, then just let it go.  Came back to it today... figured it out.
