Amazing how a single letter can make an instant association to a game.

I can identify 36 out of 60 for certain, along with good guesses at a few others...pretty crazy how things like that jump into mind even when you haven't seen some of them for a long time.

You guys are good. The interesting thing is that I get tripped up if the background on some of these are different from what they appear in game.

Edit - I think it *IS* Angry Birds, though they've now changed their font to a scribbled letter from the "wide paint-brush" style.
