Operation Isa needs Post Card

I received not one, but TWO postcards today from Rich. They are identical cards in both picture and message with only two changes between the cards (perhaps 3, depending on how you wish to count).

The differences between the cards are:

1) The cards are numbered 38 and 45.

2) Card # 38 has a post script reading "And now you've got 2 identical cards, how confused are you? Welcome to TP postcard games #3"

3) The word "England" in the address is underlined on card 38, but not on card 45, though I tend to think this is not relevant.

The list:

  • 3 (Purdy)
  • 6 (samsara2)
  • 10 (tway)
  • 13 (Isadora)
  • 22 (Sam I Am)
  • 37 (Hien)
  • 38 (GregW)
  • 43 (steff)
  • 45 (GregW)

Just an aside, did anyone ever decode the previous code? I looked back, but there are so many messages in this thread.

Quoting GregW

Just an aside, did anyone ever decode the previous code? I looked back, but there are so many messages in this thread.

We found out how to decode it, but we had managed to gather the contents from only 3/4 or 4/5 of the postcards Rich sent. The remaining recipients either did not reveal they received the postcards or did not send us the content to be decoded, so we got stuck there.

So, what about the current mystery? We are still waiting for a few members to indicate they have cards?

Okay so my one came in late with a nice note from the dutch post about incorrect address (a few scribble marks on it meant it took longer to get here)............

so any idea how many we're missing or any idea what this all means !!?!?!?!

I don't know what it is about all these Stupid Humans, but they all seem incapable of doing anything.

My S.H. sends out a code that even I can work out when i'm semi comatose after a night of drinking tungi, and yet not a single one of them have enough intelligence to put it together or even work out an idea how? It makes me wonder why Humans and not Elk are running the world. Or perhaps we really are....?

Something tells me that someone has either drunk too much or not enough of the tungi while working on the super secret, or not so super secret, post card code. Are all the cards accounted for, as of this time that is?? As far as Elk running the world - why not. Us poor Stupid Humans are hoping for the remainder of the cards to be acknowledged... He who wrote the code understands the code and the rest of us are trying to find a stash of tungi to help make things clearer. (Okay, maybe I'm the only one searching for tungi but at least I'll know what it is and it might help.)

Love the "self-portraits", Clive.

I drunk some and I donno kno what up with the code. Maybe per-say drinkin' ain't so much helpin' on the code.

...Wait, is 13 an important number...

Nah.

Thank You Heather!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yup, you've been back for awhile but we recently got the card from South Africa!!! Glad you had such a terrific time!! The wine tours - sounds like fun but you can keep the sharks. Ready to get your diving certificate? Know where to find some hammerheads that would like to be friends.

Thanks again!! ;)

As to the secret code cards - still no clue...
