    Hi everybody!

    Does the game "Jeu des sept différences" exist in english-speaking countries? And if so, what is its name?

    Thank you

    The name certainly doesn't ring any bells.

    Can you please tell us more about it.

    I think it's something like "spot the difference"
    I was not even aware that usually there were 7 differences to spot :D

    edit: une illustration ici.
    Je me demande si ça ne s'appelle pas aussi "le jeu des 7 erreurs" ...

    Spot the difference seems good to me. Thank you.
    And yes, in France there are usually 7 differences to spot. ;)

    Oui, "spot the difference" est bon. C'est ce qui est marqué sur la revue anglaise que j'ai sous les yeux. :)

    Edit: 8 erreurs ici, et oui ça s'appelle également "le jeu des 7 erreurs".

    In English I've seen up to 20 differences - maybe even more for really difficult ones. Sometimes they appear in newspapers and there are prizes to be won.
