On Monday I posted a contest to name all six dinosaurs in the puzzle I made for Galison/Mudpuppy. As of noon today there were six correct entries.
The dinosaurs are thus, clockwise from top left in the above picture:
Green – T-rex, duh.
Orange – Triceretops
Purple – Ankylosaurus
Red – Stegosaurus
Yellow – Velociraptor
Blue/turquoise – Brachiosaurus, formerly known as Brontosaurus, which I accept as a correct answer.
So as I said, six people got all six, though many of you should watch your spelling. I assigned each of you a number (1 – 6) and then I used a random number generator to choose a number from one to six. One came up, (the actual order was 1, 3, 6, 5, 4, 2) which happened to be assigned to……………………..
Are you ready?
This is Sarah:
She’s an author and mom of an almost-3-year-old and creator of Pajama Girl. I know this because I looked her up. She entered about forty-five seconds after I posted the contest, so she apparently knows her dinosaurs. Sarah, I’m gonna send you an email so I can get your address. In the meantime, congratulations.
Thanks for playing!
A new dinosaur puzzle. I must like dinosaurs because I draw a lot of them.
This is a cool little thing from Galison/Mudpuppy, for whom I’ve made a lot of toys and puzzles. Six dinosaurs and one puzzle. The puzzle comes as a series of nine cubes, with each side being a piece of one of the puzzles.
You can get this here at the Mudpuppy site.
I have an extra one of these and I’d like to give it away to someone, so I thought I’d have a little contest. There are six dinosaurs here, right? Send me an email with all six dinosaurs correctly listed (and list the colors so I can tell which one you’re naming). Of all of the right answers I’ll pick one winner from random, okay?
So you have this week. I’ll pick the winner on Friday afternoon, around 3pm Eastern Time. Send your email to brian at mrbiggs dot com. You could leave it as a comment if you want, but then you’d be giving your answers away to everyone who reads this post. So instead of doing that, use email, and then just write a funny joke about dinosaurs in the comments. Cool?
Oh yeah, the winner has to send a picture of themselves building the puzzle when they get it. Okay? Good luck.
