It Makes a Difference.
(Game instructions are below this photo.)


How to Play the Game...

The photograph above was taken on the steps of the South Fork Baptist Church during a Spiker Family Reunion.  Melanie Fouse copied the photo below (scroll down) but made several changes to the image.  Can you spot the differences between the two?  Some are easy.  Others are much more subtle.  How many of the 23 differences can you find? 

On or before November 1, 2008, send an e-mail to Bobbi Conley listing all the differences you can find between the two images.  Number your guesses, describe the "difference" and, when applicable, include the name of the person to whom the "difference" applies.  (See game scoring below the second photo.)


Game Scoring...

  • One point for each correctly identified "difference" that appears in the second photo.

  • One point for each correctly named person to whom any of the "differences" apply. You will earn one BONUS point if ALL of the names you submit are correct.  (If you do not know the person's name, write your response something like this.."top row, second from left".)

  • In the event of a tie, additional points will be based on the speed of the player's reply (those responding the fastest by e-mail will earn the highest score.)
