Dear All,

Supple Studio who were commissioned to create the video Games stamps, my son in law who is a graphic designer suggested I looked at their website where I found the following

Plus there's a little hidden 'Easter egg' on each stamp for collectors to discover - only visible with a UV Light

I was unaware of this prior to going to the web site and other articles I had read leading up to and after the date of issue made no mention of the hidden u/v only images.

I have looked at the stamps with a small U/V torch and found the following -

2nd class - Elite -- shows the wording ' Right on Commander'

2nd class - Worms -- Can see some wording but can't make it out

1st class - Sensible Soccer - - shows the word 'Goal'

1st class - Lemmings - Can see some wording but can't make it out

£1.55 -Wipe Out - Can see some wording but can't make it out

£1.55 - Micro Machines - Can see some wording but can't make it out

£1.60 - Dizzy - Can see some wording but can't make it out

£1.60 - Populous - Can see some wording but can't make it out.

Can anyone assist with identifying the exact wording?

£1.60 - Dizzy - shows the wording 'Congratulations ! Dizzy has rid Katmandu of the evil Wizard Zaks'
