Ch-Ch-Changes: Solution – Week #3

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Welcome back to Ch-Ch-Changes. It’s time to reveal the solution to the Week #3 puzzle:


The eight changes to this picture were:

  1. The road sign on the left side of the road that says, “Caution: Beatles Crossing”
  2. The VW Bug parked on the left is light blue instead of light yellow
  3. John Lennon’s sneakers have Adidas stripes on them
  4. Ringo Starr has had his beard shaved
  5. The people on the sidewalks (both sides) have been removed
  6. The cars driving on the road in the distance have also been removed
  7. Paul McCartney is not holding a cigarette
  8. George Harrison is holding (Paul’s?) cigarette

…and NEW THIS WEEK: Click here to see, for the first time, all of your guesses.

Also, a minor apology: several people guessed that the two groups of people I removed from the sidewalks were two separate changes (I had counted them as one). In those cases, I e-mailed the contestants and told them they were missing one, just to make it fair. In the future, I will try to make each change “hang together” as one, obvious change. Ah well, you get what you pay for, right? And this thing is free… ;-)

Anyway, congrats to all who guessed correctly. The scores after three weeks are as follows:

Player Correct Answers
Ilya 21
Konstantin 18
Michael Weinmayr 18
Jeff Porten 6
Joe Woods 5
Harlan Freilicher (via Facebook) 4

See you next Wednesday! And remember – next week, comments will be moderated, so you can all guess independently of each other!
