An extra Dragon Quest/Warrior figure that didn't make it to the tree.

I haven't been here long enough to answer your previous questions, however, surely there's something I'm missing because I can't see ANYTHING at all related to either set of the above system listings (as a tree decoration, or even physically under the tree!) :|

Martin, those are great guesses, I think I'll give this until the new year to reveal the correct answers.

Wow, only Martin bothered to try? You guys suck. LOL Well he was close and only missed two. Here are the answers.

1. How many years has 3DOExp been doing this?
---a) Three

2. What represented game had it's ornament changed every year?
---b) Zelda
You could have gotten this one by looking at the previous years' photos.

3. What "ornament" was purchased but didn't make it on the tree because 3DOExp was too lazy to paint it in time?
---d) Ryu from Street Fighter II

4. What figure does 3DOExp want to add but only has one of that he doesn't want to alter?
---c) Coleco Donkey Kong

5. What large ornament is made of felt instead of Perler Beads?
---b) Duck Hunt Dog

6. What other game systems are hidden towards the back of the tree?
---d) TurboGrafx-16, Saturn, PlayStation, Dreamcast
They weren't made or requested by me, they were a gift.

Martin III, you really surprised me when you got 3 & 4 right. You could have looked up question 2 but 6 was one I made hard. Since someone gave me the systems to put on the tree I ended up with a PlayStation. Those who know me well enough would assume a PlayStation would not be found on my tree.

I've already got new ornaments for next year! I'll have to get Ryu ready as well.

I have to say, the 'Shy Guy' behind a bit of a branch was actually pretty cool. :)

Well, I figured the point was to remember rather than look it up.

Believe me, I'm as surprised as you at how many I got right! Random chance plus the fact that some of my answers were at least educated guesses meant I would most likely get at least two right, but I wasn't expecting four.
