    Just one idea that might be useful if it is possible to bring it to fruition: why don't they eliminate all the buttons except the thanks one so nobody can expire it even by chance. Just leave thanks clicky.

    1 x 750
    answer = dance

    enter online at their puzzle mag website. or via mag coupon or can text/phone details on their website re call charges.

    Am no longer going to the one towns shop I found this in, after last time hunting this down in about 15 shops across three towns and a couple of villages before finding in WHS Smiths and was only covering as the regular posters WHS Smiths had reduced mags whilst having a refit. So if anyone could now take over be grateful as not worth the petrol and parking hassles from my village to this town just for this mag. Would suggest if anyone has a WHSmiths to check, as the other towns one didn't carry it. I previously tried several newsagents, most of the big supermarkets before finding it in one of the two whsmiths in different towns I checked.
    Next issue is no 25 on sale 5.4.18. mag costs 1.60.
