I'm giving this thread a bump so people can help brainstorm on the second layer of encryption on this. To see what people have tried and didn't work (or did work), leads we like, etc etc. Because, I don't know about you, but this one is kicking my ass.
We are looking for a 29 letter word or phrase. The clue is an eye. Things I tried that seemed to go nowhere: I tried to pull all of letters from the rebuses that are incorrect for the actual idiom (i.e. "tern" should be "turn"). Unfortunately, most of the rebuses don't have incorrect words, so I only got a few. I tried compiling all of the letters that appear in the rebus pictures (like the E in the lower right or the 5 I's (eyes)) but again, I couldn't find many letters and they didn't anagram well. I tried coming up the other halves of the hybrid phrases, but nothing jumps out.
At this point, I am basically trying every idiom that involves an eye or seeing (did you know "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" is 29 characters? It's wrong though), but seeing as how none of the other second level phrases have been standard...
The kids were right: the floor IS lava. But they were wrong about the fire-resistant properties of sofa pillows.
The "pyramid" symbol for this puzzle has some similarities to the symbol for The Illuminati. The vault symbol for this puzzle is an "eye" which is also similar to symbols used for The Illuminati.
"Mangled Words" has the phrase "New World Order" which could be an Illuminati reference.
The puzzle description mentions "government hybrids". I searched for conspiracies related to government hybrids and one of the first results was about the Illuminati. Apparently they created a race of reptilian-human hybrids. If you dig into this you will find some references to the "Montauk Project" as being involved with creating these hybrids. "Montauk" was a word in the word search puzzle. They also claim to use movies and TV to influence humanity. Three of the movies mentioned as examples are in the "Word Stack" puzzle.
The answer is not "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion"
So, those are the clues Ive noticed, but nothing leads me to a 29 letter phrase yet.

I think the flags on the conspiracy kit were used for the Crazy wheel since each of them is one of the letters of the agents. it also comes with pins to put into a map board and string to trace the path of the package so that you can decipher what its message is.
a coincidence then you think that it is also a 3x3 grid, it spell a conspiracy and that the red string wards off the evil eye?
i have no idea on that, but i was under the assumption that the curios were not needed to solve the puzzles, but this one does pair nicely with the crazy wheel if you needed to create a visual reference to work through. My version only came with 4 pins though, for what its worth.
Thorazine ad. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to glean anything resembling a 29 letter phrase from it. So I went looking for other eyes from this issue. And I found one that I think might yield some ciphers.
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
