    Hi guys, I'm not totally sure this is the proper thread for this but I figured encryption might fall under security I thought I might give it a shot.

    I play a game called Perplexcity, which has collectible cards, each featuring a mind bending puzzle. One of the unsolved cards hints that it needs to be decrypted using RC5. Right now there are hundreds of computers working together to solve the card but, as of yet, haven't. Looking it over and reading some things I think they might be going about it the wrong way, however, I have no tools to make my own attempts at it. The idea that the company would make people try to decrypt RC5.64 blindly is madness, so I think there is more going on than just that.

    So, my question is this. I was looking around trying to find a program used in decrypting this but have come up empty. Can ANYONE point me in the right direction or, if you feel so inclined, upload the proper program to do this? I know it's out there as it's being used this minute, but I just feel like it's being used in the wrong way. Can anyone help?

    Oh, and if you're curious as to what I'm talking about, check out this link:

    Anyway, bottom line is, I'm looking for a name or program itself for cracking RC5 encryption. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
