BBC Player pre-registration will take place during the first two weeks and the actual challenge will take place from 17 June 2023 to 30 June 2023. If the player reaches the minimum of 100 XP points per day, one number of the final PIN code (to unlock the Black Box) will be revealed to the player, per day.
