Dec-13-09  zanshin: <clue #14: The photo is an inverted jenny (a female donkey). The Inverted Jenny is a famous postage stamp misprint from 1918, one of the most prized in all philately. This game was played around the time the stamp was produced. >

That's quite a stretch. Congrats to User: SamAtoms1980 for solving it.

Dec-13-09  felixd: Omg congratulations!
Dec-13-09  Red October: fantastic, congrats, never look a gift ass in the mouth....
Dec-13-09  SamAtoms1980: <JaneEyre: <The Inverted Jenny (also known as an Upside Down Jenny or Jenny Invert) is a United States postage stamp first issued on May 10 1918...>>

I'd like to give a very special thank-you to <JaneEyre>. As a token of my gratitude for your generosity and kindness, I hereby buy you a Beer.

Dec-13-09  JaneEyre: Have that one on me, friend, but actually due credit should go to <capafan>.

Anyway, I like the homophony between Jenny and Jane Eyre.

Dec-13-09  scrambler: Congrats to the SamAtoms1980 for finding the big


Dec-13-09  TheBish: Well, silly me! I was so close I could "smell" it, was just too tired to click on all the games of 1918 after I figured out the "inverted Jenny" part - after clicking on all the "Jenni" losses, thinking upset or upended Jenni! I was hoping that somehow 24 would find it's way in the puzzle (as in 24-cent stamp), such as 24th on the list, or a game played (or player born on) May 10, 1918 or closer to that date than December! I actually did click on Amsterdam vs Eindhoven, 1918, only 5 games up on the list! I made sure to click on all the postal games (stamps), but then again I over-thought it and a little more brute-force clicking was needed.

Congrats to SamAtoms1980, and here's the history behind the story for anyone who hasn't looked it up yet:
