First time I got 25, then I read Drewbacca's post and counted again, and got 33, then I read Jokergirl's post and took that as advice to stop counting. lol :)

I know, right??? It's crazy! I was SURE it was 31, and then 33. And then, i tilted my head a little bit and new things happened!

I think i BRIEFLY saw another one, but i lost it.

You know what else is crazy? Them pictures where it is just a weird design and you look at it and space out, and all of a sudden, its a robot or a picture of Africa or something.

How do they DO that??? LOL

The most I can find is 40. I'm pretty sure that's the answer. A few people said they saw 41 or 43 but I don't see it.

Not counting rectanges or the 8 inside squares running parallel up and down (In my mind, they are not squares because they are cut off). 23

Counting those "squares", but not rectangles, 31

Counting rectangles and those "squares," 74. I could be off by one or two.

I see

1 (4x4)...the big square
4 (3x3)
9 (2x2)
16 regular sized squares (1x1)
=30
the two squares in the middle
each of those have 4 squares
2+(2X4)=10

I am very curious where the rest are :) I can't see them

moving squares?

An attempt to be funny, or the implication that you counted some of them more than once...

There are 40, but you can get >40 if you start counting black and white as two different boxes.

:lol::lol::lol:

He highlighted the squares. A little different than how I did it, but it gets it done. I did it in layers.

When I counted the 2x2 squares, I counted the top left, then the top middle, then top right, then moved down. I would do my own highlighting but I don't have the patience.
