How to crack British intelligence service’s devilish Christmas puzzle
“Calling all aspiring spooks. Robert Hannigan, director of Britain’s security and intelligence organisation GCHQ, has included a rather tantalising puzzle with his Christmas card this year. He hopes that it will exercise your grey cells over the holiday period.

So what do you need to do to be in with a chance?”
… so starts a recently published article in TheConversation that looks at a Christmas puzzle posed by the GCHQ.
