We are delighted to tell you that, owing to the generosity of our sponsors Walker Books UK and Steve Bazier, we are able to offer a special prize draw this year, open to the first 1,000 competitors to register for the competition. There are 16 prizes on offer and they are:
A signed copy of the latest Alex Rider novel by top author and screenwriter, Anthony Horowitz. The official webpage describes him as prolific, but that rather undersells his talents. If you have read any of his books, or seen any of the countless TV shows he has scripted, including Poirot, Foyle’s War, Magpie Murders, Midsomer Murders and much else beside you will know that you are in for a treat if you win this. You can read about some of Anthony’s other work over in the BOSS Library.
Five copies of the devilish puzzle, Arokah. This strange and beautiful system is more than a puzzle, is has dozen’s of geometric challenges of increasing difficulty that will threaten to draw you away from the Cipher Challenge. Do not be tempted, wait until you have completed the competition at Christmas, then treat yourself to a few days of well earned downtime with this gem.
Ten signed copies of the A2 poster for this year’s competition, designed by Harry (with a lot of help from Midjourney). These are extremely rare collectors editions, unfolded, and they will grace any wall in your home.
