Spot the Difference in our Classic Cover Game

We thought it would be fun to revisit some of our favorite Threads covers and the pages inside for our new spot the difference game. To be a master sewer you need to have an eye for detail. This skill will serve you well as you spot the differences in our classic photos.

Here's how it works:

We're challenging you to spot subtle differences between our original image and a doctored version. You get 200 points for each correct find, but you also lose 50 points for every missed click. Can you get a perfect score of 1200 points? We are starting out with 10 photos, but we are hoping to add more challenging photos soon.

The game can be a little tricky (even the Threads editors have had a bit of trouble), but we wanted it to be a little challenging for you. With some determination you can find all of the differences and master the game.

Post a comment below to share your score or offer comments and feedback on the game.

province8 province8 writes: I like the game, but 30 seconds not enough time. Issue 136 shows a difference (buttons on coat) which does not register as such, but subtracts 50 points. The same is true with Issue 144 - "affect you" vs "affect your sewing."

tanyacox2 tanyacox2 writes: It would be great but that is not near enough time to even get your eyes focused. Maybe you could have the time it takes a person to find them and then it compares to previous scores. Where are the details on how to play and how much time you have?

cmssew cmssew writes: Okay, you win. I read each page carefully, noting articles or ideas I had glossed over earlier, or forgotten. So now I shall return to my library of Threads magazine (the only magazine I never toss, and loan under threat of penalty) and I will re-read the articles, and learn something. This was a clever way to remind us that we usually already have the answers to our questions, if we stop and revalue what we already have, instead of reaching for something new !

e12 e12 writes: The "buttons" cover has a 7th error!

It's in the subhead halfway down the left side of the magazine cover to the left. The last letter of that subhead is partially superimposed by a button, whereas on the cover to the right a white space clearly separates button from subhead.

How about giving an extra bonus point to the lady who found the extra error?!
