Welcome to the annual christmas quiz.
As promised, we'll keep it simple.
All the rules can be found in the newspost here.

Let's start with day one.

As we all know, life itself will not be the same in 24 days.

But where will that scale end?
Where is it's undead line?
(What is the last number on this "ruler")

Thank you for your numerous entries!
As most of you did discovered, it was shown the top cover of a Sony PRN-T24 thermo printer and so the correct answer was "80".

The next task is rather something for the geographers among you:

What game is this country in?

Good!
Of course this map is from the game:

A good friend of mine has played this to death back in the days.

Easy one for monday.
Much holes there, hm?
But how much speaker holes does the original device have?

Actually I didn't count them. But as all answers are the same number until, I guess you are all right!

You can even use smartphones as MSX tape devices nowadays... my phone has only 5 holes for a speaker.

The Philips D6600/60P MSX Data Recoder have indeed 1648 speaker holes.
Congrats to all who knew.

Not as much to count now.
Today you see page 12 of a game manual.
How much pages does the original manual come with?

As always, please mail your answer to DIEANTWOORD@gmx.net.

This is a very confronting quiz for me. I thought I knew a thing or two about MSX, but till now I actually didn't know any answers. But I think it's a great quiz, well done hamlet.

I'm happy about any contribution of questions.
For such an "guest quest" the initiator will get a point, too.
Please send suggestions to me, so I can coordinate them.

This one looks like a PSone graphic...
So let this be tomorrows guest quest! This will be your chance to earn an additional point.

Next guest quest will be a question from The Kid the day after tomorrow.

BTW, it seems we got different experts here for the past quests. I'm very impressed!
