You don’t need to know anything about the Nutcracker, Nutcracker Quiz AND GIVEAWAY

Every have one of those 24 hour bugs that could either be food poisoning or the flu?  Me too!  That’s why this is getting up a little late.  I have a game that I like to play called Picture Picture (no idea if they still make it) and I thought we’d adapt it a little and use the beautiful illustrations from The Nutcracker.

Here’s the deal.  Look at each of the pictures and tell me 5 things you see in each one.  You’ll earn points if you are the only one to guess a particular thing.  10 points if you are the only one and 1 point less for every other person who guesses it.  So there are a potential 200 points on the line!  Get to looking 🙂

Oh, and I’m giving away this copy and by joining in the quiz you’ll be entered (if you don’t want to be just let me know).

You have until next Monday to submit your answers as a comment.  Comments will be hidden until I post the answers.  

The person with the most points this round will win a B&N gift card (total $ based on # of total participants, so please play) and a randomly selected participant will win a fun prize from me.
