eg row 4 col 4
others where the background is a green square with fairly straight edges compared to others that are wavy
eg look across row 1
and others that have brown marks (dirt?)
eg the first three stamps in row6
but THE sport is row4 col2

As the horse is white I think the sport should be named "Blinky"

Is it a missing grape ?
looks more like a missing olive !
seems quite decadent to be eating grapes on a cocktail stick

I humbly submit that the Bilious sport be christened the "Ralph". :lol: :lol:

I noted with interest when I read the Hogswatch LBE details that there were three sports for the lovely nativity scene stamp. I thought I'd order plenty of LBE's to have a sporting change of getting them all. On opening my LBE's I discovered lots and lots of Sport/common pairs, but sadly all were the same sport. All I can say is I've plenty of sausages to swap for examples of the other two sports! :D
I can only conclude that I'm paying off Karma at a vastly accelerated rate.

If these sausages are in gaspodes mouth then....
SNAP !
I ordered 11 LBEs (I know, I panicked) and was really pleased to find 10 contained a Hogswatch sport...
until I realised they were all the same sport.
Anyone found the other two sports ??
I'd love to swap too

Me too,
7 out of 7 sports, all sausages


Interestingly, I can't see anyhting on the website mentioning 3 sports. I know I read it somewhere.
