Sometimes you’ll find them in escape rooms and in the movie: ‘The Da Vinci Code‘ this object plays a important role: the cryptex. A very cool item to play with letters and words. You can also make a simple version of a cryptex yourself. This can be very useful (and fun) if you make a DIY escape room or escapegame. We promise you: it’s super easy!
Psst! We also made instructions ons how to make a decipher wheel youself.
If you know what the correct answers are, you can flip the toilet roll and see the code on the back. The little marks help with reading the correct code.
TIP: while making the cryptex, you can play with the placing of the letters in the strip.
