**edited, problem solved!**
**read whole thread below**

I managed to table the first scenario yesterday - formula - and the app malfunction kind of ruined the whole scenario for me

I got to the part where we were supposed to listen for the clue, and although I selected English (American and subsequently UK), the app kept reading the answer to me in French

For awhile I thought I heard wrongly or the accent was throwing me off, but after I found out what it was supposed to say, it is definitely not in English

This was a major flaw for me in the game. I understand it's supposed to be a cool factor, but I seriously think that for this one moment of "coolness", the app can really destroy the game for the players. How am I supposed to continue besides going through all the cards or coming online to get answers to the thing?

The whole game was about finding cards to the next answer/puzzle, and they should have done the same for this part of the scenario - seriously. They simulated the wall phone ringing with a card but decided that for this they needed a voice?

It's really illogical to me, just as illogical as the final puzzle
I hope the future scenarios are not as easily broken via the app

Are you sure it was in French? You had to do something very specific to be able to understand it.

It's impossible to understand at first, but you have to figure out how to make it possible to understand.

Let me know if you want the solution.

Hi Oliver

Yes please, if you could let me know how to understand it I would appreciate it
Because it definitely did not sound like English to me

Spoilers below:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
You entered the code '1234' to hear the message. It is impossible to understand, making some believe that it is in a foreign language. However, I realized (after misspent youth listening to rock music), that the message was simply being played backwards.

So, if you want to hear it played forwards, you enter the code backwards, so enter '4321'.

Hopefully that solves the issue

Ah I see

Ok that makes sense now
I really would not have thought of that

Thanks for this!
I am most definitely wrong on this issue!

Just click edit on the first post. The reason I ask is just to prevent people who potentially want it to think there is a problem when there is in fact none.

Haha, we played this for the first time today and thought the same thing - it was either backwards or in German! It took us quite a while to think to put the code in backwards though - seems so obvious in hindsight!
