Tips and tricks from Zip

Once you assemble the jigsaw puzzle, you'll need to decode Riley's message! But Zip's here to help! On the postcard in the box, Zip drops some useful tips to get you started. Here's the gist.

1. Note what you’re looking for Riley’s message to Mother Earth will be a word or phrase. But it won’t be in plain sight—you’ll have to do something clever to get to it.

2. Note what’s going on Where Riley and Zip are and what they're doing hints at how you should decode. Riley and her woodland critters are musicians, so they aren’t going to be sending their message via maritime flag signals.

3. Think of letters as numbers Riley’s a unique thinker—her brain often interchanges numbers with letters. So think of A as 1, B as 2, Z as 26, and vice versa. Which means you can also do math with letters! For example, A + D is E and 10 - 3 is G and Y + 2 wraps around to A, and so on.

4. Use the internet You aren’t permanently connected to the entirety of human knowledge like Zip, so if you don’t know something, look it up! No judgement.

5. Get more help If you get stuck, don’t despair! Zip is available online 24/7 to provide detailed hints. You can also check if the answer you got is right, or read Riley's full explanation of the solution.
