All the shows displayed on the front of the card are Netflix Originals, thus explaining the title “Original” above the poem. Starting at the right top corner moving clockwise, the series are: The Dragon Prince, House of Cards, Black Mirror – Smithereens, The Umbrella Academy, The Crown, A Series of Unfortunate Events and Star Trek Discovery. You will see more of Netflix later on.
The Statue on the front is of Caesar. The number 09 indicates that you should perform a Caesar Cipher with a 09 degree shift.
Move to the letters at the middle bar. The top spiralling shape points at the E, and the bottom one at the D. The shape itself indicates that you should ‘hop over’ the middle bar in order to read the text. Therefore, starting at the top with the letter D, we get the following output: EVKWCZO-TFUVJ.TFD. If we use a 9 degree Caesar Cipher rotation, we can translate this code into NETFLIX-CODES.COM. We have found a website!
Move to the poem on the front of the card. Every line of the poem starts with a Netflix category of the site we just discovered. Russian, Art House, Classic Romantic, Classic Westerns and Kid’s Music are all categories on www.netflix-codes.com. If you match the categories to the numbers listed on the site, you should get the numbers 11567, 29764, 31273, 47465 and 52843 respectively.
The first letters of the codes start with the numbers 1 through 5. On the front of the card there are five codes, each indicated with a number of 1 through 5. See the connection? In the end, every code of letters on the front gets the four remaining numbers of the codes we found on netflix-codes.com.
The numbers indicate a letter in the code, based on their order. The number 1 indicates the 1st letter, number 2 the 2nd, and so on. Therefore there are only nine letters in a bit of code, as we don’t have any more single-digit numbers than that. If you follow this up, you should find the following groups of letters: 1.TWOI 2.SCOM 3.PANY 4.THRE 5.EISA.
“Two is company, three is a…” is what you find when you remove the blanks and capitals. A quick Google search should provide you with the proverb we are looking for: “Two is company, three is a crowd.” The one word that was left out, consisting of five letters, and the solution of this card is therefore ”CROWD”.
