I see there's a 'codebreaker collection' and a 'codebreakers (with an 's' on the end) collection both for issue 13 one with the answer above and one with the answer TROPHY. I never enter via the links, I always enter from my favourites bar but think I've put the wrong answer down. Beware everyone, I'd hate you to do the same thing and disqualify yourself.

    Just FYI - the direct links I post are always correct for my designated mag, but if people do want to go via bookmarks/favourites then the 'Codebreakers Collection' I post always has a cartoon-ish character/person on the front. Probably easier to look for that in future rather than the text below the mag cover pic. HTH

    That's very helpful thank you Biker*Chick. Seems a bit silly though, they must catch loads of people out. Why not just call the mag something else or have a different closing date?
