Yebbut - the Tate owns over 300 Turners - there are rooms of them if you go there, not just 9 or 10. There are certainly more than 9 or 10 in the National Gallery.

I was debating the British Museum and British Library for similar reasons, but there are too many other things there. And the Temple Church - because it has quite a few amazing artefacts, but that doesn't fit brilliantly.

Just throwing this wrong answer in given that there are 10: aren't there nine patriarchates in tbe Eastern Orthodox Church? Maybe there's a 10th somewhere.

Nice ones! But I don't think there are places with exactly 10 Lego objects or 10 Turner paintings which include a chalice, the Colosseum, a Bible and Jacob's Ladder.

Perhaps it is mousethief? [Smile] Hmm, I wonder which of the Patriarchs the Colosseum would refer to ... No, this isn't going to work.

The 10 things these items refer to, all have a different mood about them. Many people definitely have preferences among them.

(If no-one has guessed it by, say, 11-ish tomorrow morning, shall I post the other 6 images? I realise this means that the Circus Hosts must open 10 image links, but I think it can be done rather quickly.)


PS Doublethink.: good question! It isn't a geographical place, but it isn't a type of place either.

Is this then a set of 10 objects rather than 10 objects which you'll find in one particular place?

(It isn't Tarot cards or the Stations of the Cross, anyhow.)

Is it a well-known board game?

Alright. My reason for postponing it until tomorrow is that I'm afraid you'll guess the answer right away after I post these links [Smile]

Here are the 10 images, this time in the right order:

1  2 3 4 5  6 7 8 9 x  x 12


Aand the right answer is ... (sorry Boogie, yours isn't it.)

Are these items "easter eggs" within a videogame, menu of a DVD or a computer program? I expect if it is easter eggs, then its a DVD since you suggest its not a game yet.

It's not the right answer. What I'm looking for is not a game. (Although one of these images relates a bit to games.)

Look at these images. Free your mind, perhaps do something else for a while. What do they remind you of?

My mind doesn't work that way. There are too many possible points in each picture to focus on to be able to link them in any coherent way. I'll get back to you in, um, a year or so.

Maybe, now that the pictures are in order, it would help if you looked at them in series. Have you figured out what the 10 pictures refer to already?

Free my mind? Okay.

DNA, the development of life, and progression of the chain of being?

Is it the Moonlight Sonata?

Or perhaps about the finding of water on Mars which signifies out eventual conquest (shudder) of the universe.

Is it a disease, and how it kills us, turning us into stardust, even the signpost should tell us how to cure it?

But there was. My picture number 1 refers to this picture. My picture number 2 refers to this picture. Etcetera. I've never seen the programme, but I understand that this is how Only Connect works. You post four pictures, and they connect in a way people wouldn't think of at first sight. It is how my previous Dr Who question worked.

(One of the funny things for me, every time you were searching for answers to my question, you were looking at the Colosseum cartoon at the top of the Circus board [Smile] )

That's not what I meant by an internal connection. Picture 1 doesn't relate directly to Picture 2, IMO.

Well, all my questions (if I win again) on this thread are going to be like this. The four biblical figures referred to the four actors who played the Doctor in NuWho. The four pictures in this question referred to four cartoons on the top of Ship boards. They all refer to something you all know, but in a different way. I think that is more fun.

Of course I can look up the Wikipedia pages of the aquaduct of Segovia and of Jean Sibelius. They'll probably have something in common and that will give me the answer to Boogie's question. And if I'm faster than the others, I will win. This is the only way I can do it, I simply don't know enough about Segovia and Sibelius to do this on my general knowledge alone.

Or in No prophet's case, there are a zillion things that can be either white, blue or black. We just needed to guess which of these happened to be in his head.

Everyone will have their own preferences. But taking something everyone knows and presenting it in a different way, so that it needs to be solved by lateral thinking, is what makes this fun to me. My next questions will be of the same kind.

Thanks for the warning. I'd assumed the game was supposed to be based on a selection of apparently random items that connected to each other. I'm not keen on picture questions, or YouTubes, so I'll sit those out in future.

Thank you, LeRoc. That seems to me to be how it's supposed to work, too.

FWIW I'm not so keen on picture clues, either - they're a bit fiddly to look up!

I had great fun - as you can tell. And I love picture clues as all my thinking is visual (I don't think in words)

All my thinking is lateral! When LeRoc asked us to look back at his posts they were littered with clues, but I hadn't noticed them.

Hidden in plain sight!

Let's just say that all of us like different kinds of puzzles, and this thread has the ability to cater for a range of them.


I'm working on Boogie's question ...
