I came across Moon Type while doing some research and immediately realized its Escape Room potential. Using the same grid as our Pig Pen Secret Message Panel you can create any number of secret messages.

The Panel contains Four rows of Eleven characters each. Covering the message is a clear sheet of acrylic which can be removed via a screw driver. This will allow you access to change the message, but stop Escape Room players from fiddling with it. 

You are provided with a large base (22” x 7”) and set of wood laser engraved iles.  The symbols on each block represent a letter of the alphabet.   We can set these up ahead of time to read the message of your choice or will provide you with the board and 44 tiles for you to establish your own message. The message can be reset within the limitations of the letters you have available to work with, but each symbol can generally represent multiple letters depending on how it is rotated so nearly any message could be created or you can change them over time.  There will be an acrylic cover held in place by 4 screws which will secure the letter blocks in place such that the cipher could be wall mounted if you chose or of course sit flat on a table.

Moon Type was published in 1845 by Dr. William Moon. He lost his sight due to Scarlet Fever and found existing types of embossed reading overly difficult. Because of this he developed his own system utilizing angles, lines, curves.

The 44 tiles consist of:

5 which can make - A,K,V
4 which can make - B, J, F, G
6 which can make - C, D, W
6 which can make - E, L, M, Y
3 which can make - H
4 which can make - I, T
3 which can make  - N, Z
3 which can make - O
2 which can make - P, Q
6 which can make - R, S
1 which can make - X
1 which can make Wh, Ch

Using these you can create your own messages. If you would like your Moon Secret Message Panel to come with a preset message please make a note of it in the "Special Instructions for seller" Box on the checkout page.
