The above letters form a 6 by 6 grid, where some but not all - of the letters form a sentance. You must find the start letter and then move from square to square either horizontally, diagonally or vertically in order to read the sentance. You can only visit each square once. The sentence will reveal the value of a Christmas Club card. The answer is in whole pounds.

I have worked on this for ages and am totally stumped, I can find a few numbers but can't make anything join up into a sentence.

Has anyone got any ideas please ?  Any help gratefully received. X

Sparkles, what do you mean when you say "the sentence will reveal the value of a Christmas Club card ?  Could you give an example please.

Where is the puzzle from?

I can see only three numbers, one, six and ten.

Could there also be ten, twenty,forty, sixty or ninety in the sentence?

There's no "N", "R" or "X" one letter away from the, "T" in "TY" and no "N" one letter away from the "E" in "ETY", so only "TEN" is possible from your numbers.

Sam1960 we are looking for an amount of cash, in whole pounds that has been loaded onto a store giftcard.

The only numbers that I can find , are one six and ten but they dont 'join up' to make a sentence.

This has had me baffled for weeks, I keep picking it up and studying it but get no further.

Where is the question from?

Starting from any of the 3 Ts in the third row it's possible to spell out TO FIND ANSWER.  Trying to make something from the other letters

CORBYLOON it is from the Compers News.

I have looked for all numbers and can only come up with one, six and ten. I can also see TEEN but nothing to join with it to make a number, such as sevenTEEN etc.

00.27 unite could go in front

^^^ no  forget that!

Brain dead - yes it could be  ??????? unite to find answer

one / ten  ???  to find answer  !!

Ok, starting from the M it's possible to make the sentence 'MIX UNUSED LETTERS TO FIND ANSWER'. The unused letters are NTYOESXI which can be rearranged to make 'SIXTY ONE'.

BRILLIANT!

Brilliant!

Etch,

I think you've got it, I just got as far as,  UNUSED LETTERS TO FIND ANSWER, I never spotted the MIX.

Thank-you, It's been bothering me for weeks,. X
