On the heels of word here on the forums that Will Shortz's Wordplay was going to be discontinued, I saw a post on the Penny Dell Facebook page left the other day saying that Code Breakers is also being discontinued. If true, that's a darn shame, given both titles were less than two years old, and both were nice attempts to shake things up. My thanks to the Penny and Dell editors for continuing to take some chances on innovative titles!

I saw the same post and must say I'm disappointed about Code Breakers. I was only ever able to get one issue - I wonder if I can find some duplicates that people don't mind giving up.

I'm having trouble finding my one Code Breakers magazine at the moment. I was wondering if you had a copy and could let me know what puzzles it lists as being in the book. I am going to try to gather some and build my own code breakers collection.

Was this ever confirmed? I was trying to get the latest (possibly last) issue but have been unable to locate it over the past few weeks. Too bad if so, the collection in this title was a very good variety of coded puzzles. I particularly enjoy the one that's a quote coded letter by letter and the solution for each coded letter is either the letter before or after the letter clue in the alphabet. The geography puzzles are also a highlight, but I know they appear in the variety titles too.

Haven't seen it, or any confirmation of its discontinuation, Chris. I've been trying to find the last issue of WordPlay (I thought it was to come out in June) but haven't seen that either.

Solvers, as you suspected, Solver's Choice Code Breakers is no longer being published. For those of you who are fans of Cryptograms, we can suggest our Collector's Series volumes of these puzzles (http://ow.ly/Sehpv). To find some of the other puzzles features in Code Breakers, check out Dell Official Variety Favorites (http://ow.ly/SehzW) and Dell Official Variety Puzzles (http://ow.ly/SehES). We hope you'll find some of these puzzles equally enjoyable!
