You have the cd as 12/7 but when you click on the link above, the CD on the entry page for Codebreakers 6 is 5/7, but Codebreakers Collection 6 is listed as cd 12/7 so I am a little confused as to which of the two magazines this refers to. Would it be possible for someone to clarify this please? Sorry to appear thick and thank you again for posting, it is very much appreciated

    I can confirm emma's post #2383 is for Codebreakers 6 and the link goes to the correct entry form. Even though the online form says it closes 05/07, it should close on 12/07 as printed in the mag (and the same closing date as all the other issue 6 3000 comps).

    If TAB remove the entry form on 05/07 and you want to enter you will need to email puzzlesfeedback@bauer.co.uk and ask them to reinstate the form.
