I'm guessing it's just when you submitted it 'cause I did mine on Friday night.

Totally agree. It makes you notice all the little details that the map makers work so hard on, but most of us are probably concentrating on the game and don't really appreciate them like we should. Enjoying it, thanks thenobodies80.

The biggest change I noticed was that the maps were no longer sorted by name, like they were in the first two rounds, so I had to go over every map for those I didn't recognize right away, instead of just those in between the ones that I did get easily.

I agree about #29. I was looking for a brown land mass on a map using that font for territory names.

I knew #28 was a face, but didn't place the individual (which would have made it obvious).

#21 threw me off, because I saw it as a right eye in profile with a nose beside, not a left eye looking straight ahead with the edge of the neck in view.

And I would like to lodge a (mild) protest about #24: when I see that map right now on the site, none of the red and white or yellow borders appear.

Still, I am enjoying this competition immensely! On to round 4!
