    3)
    4) Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games (The Dude)
    5) Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 (Gooner)
    6) Streets of Rage (Gooner)
    7) TIE Fighter (The Dude)

    No but as I think you know you're pretty damn close. I wonder if this'll get stolen. They usually do!

    Is 5 Road Rash?
    If I went any others I'd just be guessing blindly, I meant 6 originally, kind of looks like a poster outside the pub & shop in the kind of lobby area for the game.

    No, it's not.

    As a clue about 5), it's the second most modern game on the board.

    Gooner, 6) is right.

    Sam, 4) is not. I think it's more recent than that.

    9 is Road Rash then? It looks like a racing game of some kind.

    That leaves the one easier one, and the tough challenging ones left.

    Yes. It was me. I nearly said I didn't think it was the right answer.

    Is 3. Fire Pro Wrestling?

    Ah yes, that's right, I remember now.

    1) is the most gettable of the ones that are left, I'd say.

    And no, but the right ballpark for 3).

    Oh yeah, you were away weren't you? It clearly looks like it if you two came up with it independently of each other.

    OK, so one was an NES game, 3) was for the mega drive/genesis, and 8) was PC and people from a certain part of the world can probably get clues if they look very closely at the figures.

    Nope. Going to repeat this, just in case it's been missed the first time.

    Though looking at the thread so far, I don't think we've had a single guess from the right part of the world. You'd have to know your history, then.

    3. is killing me. It's a wrestling game, I know that, but can't put my finger on the name.

    1) is part of a franchise that spans many different media forms.

    3) is a wrestling game and shares it's name with some WCW PPVs

    8) is a pretty specialised strategy game that takes it's name from a famous historical figure.

    Number 8, is it a really old game I think I remember one of my mates playing called Napoleon? From the late 90s.

    No but that's probably the best guess so far. There are other words in the title, not just the guy's name.

    No idea on a title, but is 8 related to Genghis Khan? There's a certain Asian feel from the characters in the screen shot

    I'll stop you there just to keep you from going down the wrong path - completely the wrong part of the world.

    I'm away next week and so will reveal the remaining answers tomorrow, so as not to hold it up. So far Dude has the lead.

    No more guesses so as promised here's the reveal.

    The easier one is 1) which is Teenage Mutant Hero/Ninja Turtles on the NES.

    3) is Wrestle War.

    And 8) is Robert E. Lee Civil War Generals. If you look at the figures you can see a neat union army in blue and a less organised Rebel army in grey.


    Dude is up I believe.
