Identify what this is.

Why do you think these numbers are arranged like this?

Re: Identify what this is.

Maybe it's a board game.

Re: Identify what this is.

Maybe it's a board game, but I don't know the rules to it yet.  Here's a hint though, examine the green numbers.  These numbers might ring a bell in your memory banks.

Another clue:  In 1929, these numbers were known such that this order could have been generated by a guy last name "Janet", though he did not put them in this particular order, but he had the knowledge to do it, based on what he did generate in 1929.

Re: Identify what this is.

This clue should give it away.
Try reading on a guy named, "Charles Janet".

I guess 122K bytes photos are too large for our forum.  I thought max was 64K at one point, but thought it was larger now.

Re: Identify what this is.

I'm sorry for any  confusion, I just couldn't resist a little joke with the seasons greetings and so forth.
Actually, the seasons have little or nothing to do with the puzzle.  I regret any wasted time this hath causeth.
#84 = Po, as in the november poisoning of the russian run-away with polonium-210 in 2006.
