Code Crackers

Code Crackers is stuffed to bursting with over 150 of the best code-cracking puzzles. Standard puzzles are based on a 15x15 grid, and feature three starter letters; however, there are plenty of variations on the basic puzzle theme to spice up the code-cracking experience.

Scattered throughout the magazine are Cryptograms – amusing quotations that have been put into cipher – and Short Codes – small, but deceptively fiendish, code-cracker grids that really test a reader's grey matter. Other puzzle types that vary from issue to issue include: Skeleton, Spiral, Backwards, 22 To Do, a giant arroword/code-cracker hybrid, jigsaws, plus lots of themed puzzles to keep you guessing.

If there's an interesting or peculiar word in a puzzle, look out for the etymological snippets, explaining the word's heritage. Add a great prize competition each month, and you're in for a cracking good time!
