At PAX East this year the podcast crew (and friends) once again put on our game show, The Pinquizition. Contestants first had to face a round of random geek trivia, then see if they could Name That Pinny from a series of blurry images. Those who could then faced the horrors of Pinny Code Names (please don't sue us). The team who advanced then faced off in a 2 on 1 battle against Pedro with some of his personal collection on the line. It was requested that I put the final challenge online, so here it is. Could you Win Pedro's Pinnys?

The team who chooses the one I've selected
Is the team who wins.
