What Is Celebrity Cipher?

Celebrity Cipher is a puzzle game that is published in some United States newspapers. It was created by Luis Campos, and some samples of the game are also available online at Universal Uclick.

Celebrity Cipher puzzles are a form of cryptogram. They contain a phrase that has been scrambled such that each letter used has been switched for another letter. The phrases used are always quotes from a well-known celebrity, and the celebrity's scrambled name is included as part of the puzzle. Players attempt to unscramble the phrase by testing out different letter combinations, usually beginning with the shortest words.
