Secret Codes #5

Just before we turn to ciphers, there is one more kind of secret message to explore -- STEGANOGRAPHY! This is the art of hiding or obscuring a message instead of changing it. One classic example is the Cardan grille. When a piece of paper with holes in it is placed on a text the words that show through the holes reveal the secret message.

To simulate using a Cardan grille, click this link which takes you to a secret message and its paired grille. If you line up the holes in the right way, a message is revealed to you!

ALERT: THIS MAY NOT WORK ON A PHONE. For those Summer Game players who only play on a phone, the game code is posted in the comments below.
