It's happened before. As I understand it, puzzles in magazines, newspapers, etc. very often have more than one solution. Probably one of the best known cases was the Sky One puzzle on a hillside in England, for which they offered a prize of 5000. To their embarrassment Embarassed , it turned out to have a total of 1905 solutions.

I guess that if you're sure of your solution, submit it to the magazine and point out that the puzzle has more than one solution.
