Jigsaw puzzles

A series of four 1000-piece ''Lost'' Mystery of the Island http//www.jigsaw-games.com/ jigsaw puzzles have been created by http//www.tdcgames.com/lostpuzzles.htm TDC Games '''The Hatch (Swan Exterior)''', '''The Others''', '''The Numbers''', and '''Timelinepre-crash'''.  The first two were released in July 2006, the third in August 2006, and the fourth in February of 2007.

===Secret writing on back side===
The website proclaims that the puzzles reveal secrets, and the boxes come with a '''Spoiler Warning'''. 

When completed, they each have glow-in-the-dark secret images on the reverse side of the puzzles, including a complete blast door map image (same as that shown on the show and Season 2 DVD, but with a little more clarity for areas blocked by the door).  
Along the borders, there are several mysterious number codes, some of which are preceded by the letter 'c', also in glow-in-the-dark ink. In February of 2007, there was a clue in French on the back of Puzzle , which confirmed the theory that the codes do refer to chapter and verse (see below).

{{I=LOST totalback.JPG=200px=right=Images of the glow-in-the-dark backs of all 4 puzzles, pieced together}}
The cipher on the back of the box is an Ottendorf cipher, and refers to the "turn of the screw."
The first numbers after the "C" correspond to chapters of ''The Turn of the Screw'' (a ''Lost'' literary works found in the Swan). The second number after the slash (/) corresponds to a paragraph (first letter).  In the case of numbers after a plus (+), count that many letters over from the first letter.

For example
Refers to
*Chapter 14
**12th paragraph
***3rd letter from the first (4th letter from the start of the paragraph)

''For the completely decoded messages in order, scroll to Jigsaw_puzzles, decoded.''

DHARMA Protocol no stations past security barrier}} * Translates to "A 'Screw' Classic, Chapter and Verse". Note ''Un Vis'' (masculine) means in French, having a bad habbit, a weakness. ''Une vis'' (feminine) means in French, a screw. It may have been mistranslated on the puzzle. The official French name for ''The Turn of the Screw'' is ''Le Tour d'écrou''. *As a French speaker, I feel obligated to chime in here "un vis classique chapitre et vers" translates roughly to "a classic screw chapter and verse". But it's not proper French at all. The thing is, this phrase makes much more sense in English "chapter and verse" is not an expression used in French. Also, the word "vis" ("a screw", no sexual connotation here) is feminine, but the article that preceeds it ("un") is masculine. The masculine word you alluded to is spelled "vice", the same as in English. Regardless of the poor grammar, the function of this phrase is clear (see cipher explanation at the top of this article) ===Number codes (back)=== Two clusters above the map {{quote=C14/2 C18/3 C24/8 C31/9 C3/2+2 C1/1 C10/8 C8/8 C8/2 C3/2 C1/1 C2/1+4 C7/35 C22/3 C16/13 C18/5 C3/4 '''THERE IS NO SICKNESS'''}} {{quote=C1/13 C16/13 C14/8 C7/8 C20/2 C8/2 C10/1+1 C14/8 C16/7 C7/10 C7/2 C8/8 C7/8 C7/10 C18/3 C3/2+2 C16/13 C3/4 C14/8 '''NEED MORE MAC AND CHEESE'''}} Along the left side (connects to the left side of ) {{quote=C8/2 C14/2 C6/1+3 C2/5 C1/5 C12/2 '''(PR)OTOCOL'''}} ==Completed secret messages, decoded== These are read from the upper left corner of the map, in a clockwise direction. {{quote='''THERE IS NO Sickness''' '''NEED MORE Food''' '''Supply drop|PERIODIC RESUPPLY DROP''' '''Alvar Hanso|ALVAR HANSO''' '''WHAT GOOD IS Peanut Butter AND CEREAL WITHOUT MILK''' '''Quarantine IS A HOAX''' '''DHARMA Initiative|DHARMA INITIATIVE Hanso Group|HANSO GROUP''' '''Cerberus|CERBERUS VENT''' '''EMERGENCY ESCAPE PROTOCOL'''}} The underlined text (decoded from the corresponding underlined code) corresponds to abbreviations seen on the blast door map, which were previously not fully explained.
