|To commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Amiga birth AmigaWorld is hosting a special 25th Amiga Anniversary Puzzle competition which is opened to all Amigans.|
Part 1: The Community section - "Amiga Faces"
The 25th Anniversary picture contains 110 numbered faces of people who, in one way or another have been associated with the Amiga over the past 25 years. Many of the faces will be very familiar [while others will be less so. Feel free to collaborate with other community members to identify all 110 "Amiga" faces.
Object: identify all 110 numbered "Amiga faces" that appear in the Puzzle picture. Use the puzzle crib sheet silhouette to find the number for each face.
(both images can be clicked to show a larger size)
Part 2: "Amiga" Related Images
There are at least 30 individual "Amiga" related images in the picture from Amiga games, icons, historical images, logos etc.
Object: Identify at least 25 of these images (obviously identifying all 30 images would be better).
Part 3: How many Boing Balls are represented in the picture?
There are multiple Boing Balls of varying sizes distributed around the picture.
Object: Determine the correct number of Boing Balls and circle the correct answer on the sheet.
Part 4: Identify the Mystery Spaceman
There is an historical "Amigan" inside the spacesuit (111).
Object: using the riddle identify the name of the historical Amigan inside the spacesuit.
Part 5: Tie-Break question
Who, in your opinion, should have been the mystery "Amigan" in the spacesuit.
In the event of a tie-break your answer will be used by the "judges" to determine the prize placing.
Part 6: Community Prize Nomination
Object: Nominate someone (other than yourself) who in your opinion did most to help the community identify the "Amiga faces" in the Community Section (Part 1) of the Anniversary Puzzle.
