Clicking stamps in the game that looked "too good"

That's a huge hint, in my eyes. Smile

Thanks. I had thought the object of the game was to find a forgery amongst the stamps. Smile

Clicking stamps in the game that looked "too good", to me, resulted in 80-90% success rate.

Me, happy to read your comment, MTT. Wink

In the bottom of the screen, left: "Drucken" -> "Print"
In the bottom of the screen, right: "Beenden" -> "Quit"

In all editions, the goal of the "Spiel" ("Game") on each screen is to find a stamp that has been photoshopped.
Me, I've no idea which one has been edited, in the particular questions.

Many thanks for this series, IIGS_User. I especially liked these very early stamps. I used to collect world stamps as a child so it has been a bit of a nostalgia journey for me (and I had many German stamps from the period between the two world wars). This series is very well done with a lot of background information included. Wish my grasp of the language was better than practically none tho' Wink

To avoid being sued supporting Nazi ideology (which is often specifically practiced by German inhabitants), I do not put online screenshots of stamps from the time of the Reich.
