OK - "What Duck?" must be declared the official name for this sport. :D

Everyone is talking about how the sport doesn't have a duck, but neither has it a lion, giraffe, steam-powered buttock or newt.

The common didn't have a lion, giraffe, steam-powered buttock or newt to disappear from view.

They were there, but hiding in the distance.

The Discworld Diamond Dollars sport is R3C3 top and bottom star and disk swapped.

The blurb says 2 sports per sheet, anyone found the second sport on either sheet.

the other sport is the Insertion of the United Kingdon (BRINSERT) r1 c2
Didn't get either diamond sport in my LBEs. Quite a sparse haul with a Triangle, paired Bank sports, 2 What Ducks? and a single Nothingfjord sports.

My eyes are a bit feeble these days, but I'd level a guess that the "Hogswatch tree 50P" sport is
[Reveal] Spoiler:
missing the star on top
, and on the "Hogfather 50P" sport
[Reveal] Spoiler:
The front pig has done a wee
. The "Assassin 50P" sport I'm unsure about. Thought I had it, but my eyes were playing tricks on me...
I can only conclude that I'm paying off Karma at a vastly accelerated rate.
