Think you have eyes like a hawk? Well, it’s time to find out. “Spot the difference” is a classic observation game that puts your attention to detail to the ultimate test. Two versions of the same picture are placed side-by-side with only a few subtle changes differentiating them. Only those with a keen eye will be able to decipher the minor modifications that have been made. The changes can be anything from a slight tweak to something that has been removed entirely from the picture. Sound easy? You might be surprised. Sometimes even seemingly blatant changes can manage to slip right by.
Are you up for the challenge? Below are 24 “spot the difference” tests that will see just how much attention you pay to the little things.
