Have you found the secret password hidden in the October issue of Smithsonian magazine? Some solvers have written to us in bewilderment, confident that they’ve completed the first puzzle but upset that their password doesn’t seem to work.
To those of you who feel sure that your password is right but have been foiled by the website, I say: look closer–especially if you’re using a digital version of the magazine! You are probably agonizingly close to the correct password. Double-check your work. Look again.
