NAME THAT PATTERN -- Home Game Edition!

Readers, I'm am thrilled to introduce another MPB exclusive: Name That Pattern -- Home Game Edition (HGE)!

In Name That Pattern! HGE, not only are you competing with other MPB readers, you also get to play against your own FAMILY and FRIENDS* and you can post their answers right here on MPB.  How cool is that?

*MPB cannot be held liable for any loss or damage to personal relationships which may arise from participating in Name That Pattern! HGE-related activities. 

If you don't know how to play Name That Pattern!, it's simpler than simple: provide a clever name to the patterns that I post below.  If you can't think of something for all the patterns, just put down answers for the ones you can.

As always, we have amazing prizes in store for the winner, including a beautiful Mediterranean Magnovox color TV console!

Are you ready?  Are family and friends nearby?  Well go get 'em, because....

-- here's Pattern #1:

At a loss already?  Behold the wonder that is Pattern #2!

Sitting down?  You'd better, because here's Pattern #3!

But wait -- there's more!  Here's Pattern #4!

Keep it coming, you say?  Here's Pattern #5!

Friends, we're almost done.  Every Name That Pattern! game includes a bonus pattern.  Fortunately, the Home Game Edition includes TWO!

And here they are: Patterns #6 and #7!


As always, I'll be chiming in with my answers in the hours ahead.  And remember:  There's no shame in losing if you don't tell anybody about it.

Have a great day, everybody!
