The questions were so easy

What questions? I solved riddle, but didn’t see (or hear) questions???

The questions are sort of implicit. For example, the first box was really asking the question “Which image corresponds to Year of the Dragon level 1-5?”

Just some background knowledge regarding this festival:

“During the Lantern Festival, celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in the lunisolar year, children go out at night to temples carrying paper lanterns and solve riddles on the lanterns.”

OK, this may sound stupid, but how in the world do you solve these puzzles? I understand what the answers are; how do you enter them? I know this is probably the easiest thing to do, but I am stumped! I was up very late due to the Super Bowl and haven’t had much sleep, so that’s my excuse for the confusion.

use the arrows on the right hand side, and they move the pictures up and down

By wanda (@wanda)

Bless you! It never occurred to me that those were arrows. I thought they were just decorative; I need more coffee :). Thank you very much.

Now I feel better. I thought I was the only one :).

I had the same problem with the puzzles. Just never occurred to me to move the arrows.

Still not sure of the connection with the fish in the Year of the Dragon. Should not there have been dragon themes or results?

[ Two teaser videos: One from the “Happy New Year” video, plus an official trailer); ]

why is this sign ‘)’ after the word trailer? nothing evident but a small mistake i think!

Rank: Sling God with 28115 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

My mistake, sorry. I originally had it as “two teaser videos (one from…)” but eventually changed to colon instead of parentheses.

This is one of the scenes posted on the page iamMighty linked to.
Doesn’t appear that there has been any progress in figuring out what it’s from or for.

Maybe it relates to this post http://www.angrybirdsnest.com/local-edition-of-angry-birds-in-the-works/
As all the images have the same level with a different background.
who knows, i suppose only time will tell for sure.

I was wondering… When ABFB comes out will it have an app (So we can play it on our Ipods/Iphones…) like how words with friends or any other app connected to FB apps.

Rank: Sling God with 28115 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Don’t think so. The app seems to differ greatly.

If you mean how most of us have a little pic at the corner of our avatars then you can’t because those are achivments. There is a detailed article if you click on anybody’s avatar.

Tragic Mistake: At the start, you see 3 blue birds at the right screen but when the mighty dragon appeared, only 2 blue birds were there!
