Here is where the fun begins! A couple points about what to do next:
- Imagine each three colors sets as three separate "pictures" Red, Blue, the Green
- When you read the letters, read clockwise starting in the lower left corner of the left border up around the top border and down the right border side of the each color set.
If you write it down correctly her is what you will see...
Mike: If you look at what you read above, you will spot certain words, but there appears to be a lot of gibberish as well. Then a revelation hit me, and I emailed Nick "I know what it says", almost within seconds he responded "me too!" Here is the deal. We figured out that in order for this gibberish to make sense, you must eliminate the letters associated with the primer card, as well as the mate card (where the entire border side matches). He is what it looks like when you eliminate the 18 cards...(eliminate letters highlighted in red)
This would leave:
Pair all odd man out marks to the eighty one same letters, order by spot, color, number. start with flag!
So now you know who the "Odd Man Out" is. The only yellow background card of the lot, and the 100th card of the code, Mr. Pat Neshek! Also notice that the bottom left symbol is a flag...BINGO!
So here ya go! Is this the answer? NO! We still have more cracking to do (but getting close!)
