ForumForum Games ► I will kill the president
In this game, I will encode a message saying "I will kill the president" or mark a future date on which I will "kill the president." If you are able to explain how I encoded that message and what the exact message is, you will win the round (mention anyone who had helped you solve it). If you win the round, you may choose to try your luck encrypting the message yourself or pass it onto the next willing participant. Keep all progress inside this thread, if you want to communicate with others make cryptic posts in this thread to throw others off track and to bury and clues I may give.
Good luck!

So, where is this message?
  
Well, I'm an artist, and artists choose their colors carefully.
  
it's in your icon
  
No, I'm not artistically inclined in that way.
  
oof
  
Re-read the rules, please. It's still incorrect too.
  
It'd be good to read them backwards and forwards, even the colors, so you can really get a good idea of what you're reading.

Good luck!
  
The color value for his "good luck" is
81d0E0 in hexadecimal
or
149 208 224 in base 10
or
10000001 11010000 11100000 in binary
  
what if we cannot figure it out?
  
Is there supposed to specifically be some way the phrase has "I will kill the president" encoded in it or is it an either/or with the date?
  
or is it worded differently?

You're pretty close to making sense of it
  
So in other words, we have to figure out what the encoding device is?

111401150022120616220211120013090000
  
So, the color is 81D0E0
Backwards, this is 0E0D18
__/__/18

It could be
4/5/18 or 4/14/18, depending on how you interpret it.
  
so he will kill the presedent 4/14/18 or 4/5/18
  
Maybe try a mirror?
  
030b18

What number is the b?

It's march something, 2018.

Edit: It's 03/06/18. You plan to kill the president on march 6th, 2018.
  
The NSA must be having a field day with this.
  
I wonder why...

But is it 3/6/18?
  
I got sick over the weekend, but Mathmaniac got the date correct. The game will continue when I am cleansed of malicious bacteria... unless Mathmaniac wishes to make their own cryptic message.
  
I will. And this follows the path I took to get the last one.

I have to do this later though...

hope you feel better. 03/06/18 only 3 days after the switch anniversary.

It's fairly simple.
  
I would like it if that was the year you would kill the president
