Christmas quiz 2018

Christmas comes near and by tradition we would like to continue our Christmas quiz this year as well.
Since in the last two years the puzzles were too varied and complicated, we return this year to a simple photo quiz.

For the three first place winners there will be interesting prizes again, since curious!
Every day we will publish a picture related to MSX, but from unusual perspectives. There will be one question for each photo.

The rules are simple:

  • From the first to the 23th of December, a photo with MSX specific content will be made available here every day.
  • You answer the question and send our MRC member hamlet a private message to DIEANTWOORD@gmx.net on the same day with your proposed solution.
  • The member with the most correct solutions wins the prize at the end.

If there is a tie and therefore several winners, the geese decide. They are used to this and have already proven themselves several times.
You can discuss here and lure your comrades on the wrong tracks, but do NOT write your solution suggestions in the forum. Or do it.
A score will only be announced at the end, as will the corresponding solutions.
If you have any suggestions, let us know in the comments.
The exquisite prizes will please you and can be viewed here.

Have fun and good luck, see you here!

Very nice, Hamlet. This is becoming a nice tradition!

Unfortunately for me I will be starting a new job December 1st, so I probably won't have much time to compete.

Will there be a way to contribute prices? You've given so much already over the past few years. People should be able to donate Smile

That would of course make the competition even more appealing. Donors can simply publish their gifts on MSX.PICS and let me know. I link the pictures then.
Also I will reduce myself in the course of the competition still my collection around the one or other nice piece.

Many thanks to all helpers.
I am already looking forward to Saturday!

Okay, I put some stuff in an envelope and put your address on it... Best to keep the prices on one place Smile

You're doing very well until, ray2day!
I hope to accommodate some easier questions. So far I find the mixture quite successful to owe also the guest questions. There seem to be some experts for all special fields. And that's a good thing. Please support me by contributing your own tasks. On the following days, there will be some nice tasks from The Kid, be curious!
