How did you get your time, Sergeidave? Many tries? Or some sort of preparation?

Yeah Antonius, those were easy! \:D Myra Hess and Joseph Hofmann took just a moment, but otherwise it was a walk-through.

Fun. Nice to see Martha there.

So how fast did you get through it? I could have got through a bit faster if I had cleaned my mouse before trying, but 15 seconds??

I'm sorry, I forgot to explain how to replay the game. For those who don't know, you just hit the F5 key on your keyboard to refresh the game and play it over and over, \:\)

I guessed on Cortot. That Horowitz picture is not the (much older) Horowitz I recognize.
