There was a pretty big response to this puzzle now that the holidays are behind us. Nobody managed all nine answers but two people eventually had eight correct, one of them very detailed and precise, so the winner has been called. But first, the answers.
1 is the eyes of Edgar Allen Poe. I don't know if I would have gotten this correct, but my daughter pegged it when I tested the puzzle on her. Answers included Albert Einstein, Charlie Chaplin, Fidel Castro, Dracula, and Che Guevara. Several people did get Poe, though Pacino ran a close second.
7 I could not have predicted this would be the spoiler for so many. Seems it was a bit frustrating as it seemed so familiar but was hard to place. Answers ran the gamut including art, African people, cave art, books, religious tracts, and MY nightmare. Only one person said Ouija board.
The winner with 8 very detailed and correct answers is Kathy Look at her answers and you may be like me- Did she help research the puzzle! Give Kathy's blog a visit and say hi.
Micael gets an honorable mention nod. He initially did refer to the "infamously evil drag queen Ouija Board". Later he posted again still mulling over number seven. Micael eventually pegged down eight but Kathy's answers were incredibly precise, and the Robot Nine board of directors named her the winner.
I should post a new Picture Puzzle on January 7, 2009, so please return and play.
