    Default Happy Birthday - a puzzle



    I think this one is much easier than the first one, so 100T for the first person to PM me the correct answer.

    Way to go Molnar!

    Thanks for the puzzle Gabi.

    This one is definitely harder than your last puzzle. I don't watch much TV or movies.

    I haven't even seen Star Wars! lol

    I tried to find faces that were quite popular, even tho not all of them are, I thought that enough of them would be so the puzzle was solvable.

    How many of them did you recognize Molnar?

    I will try to make the next one easier, in fact what I am trying to do is to learn what is too hard and what is too easy for a bigger puzzle I am creating, so all the input is welcome.

    Can't wait for that! Wished I had time this week to look at these others, but at least now I have something to look forward to!

    i only recognized one face from this puzzle, but i don't watch tv or movies.

    as for easier, i would think that since this one was solved in a day, easier would mean posting the solution instead of the puzzle

    the level of difficulty for the one before this seemed pretty good, even though i didn't quite figure out the greek...got caught by the non-greek and thought i was wrong.

    looking forward to more! thanks, gabi

    Congratz Molnar!

    gabi, I just glanced at this yesterday, didn't really have time to do anything with it yet (thought maybe I'd get a chance to look at it today when I wasn't so busy). I recognize only 6 of the 12 without looking anything up. Of course I'm not even sure HOW I would identify the others...

    Some people are lost in the shuffle. I'm shuffling along with the lost.

    I recognized 9 from the start, spent some time finding two of the ladies once I had figured out the way the puzzle worked. I would have gotten it much sooner, had I not made a bone-headed mistake.

    I still haven't determined the guy in the upper right corner, though.

    Ok, 50T for the first person to post the name of the guy in the top right corner.

    I would ask Carol or 12pm, they might be able to help you.

    And to level the field for everybody I will tell you two things that Molnar knows, his birthday is in December and there is a "y" somewhere in his name.
