    TAB Mini Hide n Seek Wordsearch 4

    The form was there on 19th/20th and it is not accessible through the menus either. What may have happened is that many comps closed on 20th Feb and their forms were deleted sometime on the 21st. They could have included issue 4 as one of the deletions in error. This has happened before on the odd occasion.

    If someone contacts them on puzzlesfeedback@bauer.co.uk to let them know they are usually very good at correcting any problem, although it will probably not be until after the weekend.
    (I don't want to contact them in this instance because I have already entered)

    This comp is shown as E:20/03 online, but E:27/03 in the magazine. I think E:27/03 is correct.

    We need a volunteer to become the new regular poster of this mag starting with issue 3 which is on sale shortly.
    If you would like to help out please post below or send me a PM.


    Thanks to JessicAhh for volunteering to be our new regular poster.
