And the Oscar goes to… Lima!

Posted by Steve on February 06 at 12:38 pm

For all the movie fans out there, February is Oscars month. And we thought we’d have a little fun by putting Lima on the red carpet! Try and solve the puzzle below by dragging and rearranging the squares to reveal the hidden scene… there’s a prize waiting for you if you succeed! UPDATE: The prize expired on 2/9/09, but you can still have fun solving the puzzle!

Number of tries: 0

Did you solve it? How many tries did it take? :)

Bonus question: what’s your vote for Best Picture this year? Tell us in the comments!

    It took me a little while too, but I finally got it after like 30-40 moves. I decided to get the top row first, it makes it easier.

    Cool! What fun! I love these kind of puzzles. I noticed it was set up like your fresh picks, when you pick up an image everything shifts one space to the left. (So Alice P start with the upper left hand corner.)
    Fun games, free stuff, wow Lima team! You guys are awesome! (you sure know how to keep a loyal customer base!) Thank you!
