Solve This Puzzle: What Is This Mystery Object? by 


Put on your thinking caps, have as many guesses as you want …. and most of all, have fun. Your time starts ….. NOW!

Spoiler alert: do not read any further, unless you want the answer revealed!

Solved by Melboune-based Red Bubbler JF Pictures, who correctly identified them as Nintendo games. They are a selection of Nintendo 64 cartridges.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my work in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/90 sec, ISO 400, focal length 125mm.

    a stack of plastic chairs on their side?

  • I see where you’re coming from, Kay, but they’re not plastic chairs.

    Ah, Mr McMahon, I think you are trying to fool us. Perhaps the picture is on its side.

    Cases, plastic cases for DVDs or somesuch.

  • No sir, the picture is not on its side, trust me. It is depicted exactly as I shot it. You are not far off the mark in your guesses …..!

    Cases for photodisks then. Or even photographs.

  • Not photo disks, not photos cases!

    The yellow and grey ones made me think medical. X-rays. But the gold ones? Too showy.

  • Not medical. Not X-rays. And yes, they are VERY showy!!!!! Ahem, ahem ….

    Have you been in that shop again that you were telling me about?

  • Not yet. But in case you’re wondering aloud, this was not shot in a store!

    If I’m not far off the mark with cases, they are not shot in a store and are very showy….then I’m a bit lost. The cases bit rules out deckchairs which would be showy. In any case (pun alert) they don’t look big enough. They look like they are on a shelf.

  • They are fairly small, and in a self-contained case. Each of these items is an individual item.

  • BINGO! They are Nintendo 64 game cartridges, hence the different colours! Well done.
