Learn how to play here:
http://www.lottaliving.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=6734

Then, come back to this thread on July 3 to play MCM Concentration!


2009.10.06: What I'm doing today is trying to repair the links to old images on this thread and others. I kept most of the puzzle images, but I no longer have the matched prize images. (You'll see what I mean when you read the rest of the thread below.) It appears that the entire thread referenced in the above link is missing. But I still do have the demo puzzle image:

The puzzle above decodes as The Rat Pack in Ocean's 11.

To my favorite sibling Lynn: Yes and no. When I think back to the original "Concentration," what I recall was its slow pace and those annoying clicking sounds that the board made. That doesn't really work on Lotta Living. Whereas Trebek has become a kind of generic composite host here, and it's easy to make fun of him. (Even when I tried to use the original hosts here http://www.lottaliving.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=5152, they were all Trebek.) JulieB will be turning over the puzzle pieces. How he/she became Vanna is another story, but I like her in that role. (Also I think SDR has the hots for her, or was it Bender - so as a favor to them ...) Sean won't be in the game - he said that he would be out of town all next week.

To MD and moderns-r-us: I can guarantee that you won't be solving any puzzles on the first clue this time! (Oh, and the puzzle above is "Thank you, Mister Lynxwiler."

Well, isn't that a fine howdy-do!

Good morning Campers, and welcome to:
Image

Anyone can choose two numbers from the board. It may take me a minute or two to respond, but I will respond to every post. If there is more than one request, then I will take them in the order posted unless the puzzle is already solved. If no one responds, I will remove two pieces of the puzzle every half hour. We're going to play until I run out of puzzles or the cows come home, whichever happens first.

Let's get started. Julie B is not feeling well today, so I will do the honors.

It's been about ½ hour, so let's unveil two pieces of the puzzle.

If you can't solve the puzzle from this, you should be posting on an American Colonial board or something.

I'm going to turn over all the pieces and then go on a break. We'll try another puzzle this afternoon - a really nasty one!

I wasn't expecting service to be back, so I made plans to see a movie now. I'll be back later, though.

Since we're playing "Three on a Match" you can pick another number - I'll pick it for you, though ...
