Help settle a debate.

Mouth open?

Mouth closed?

No mouth?

This sounds dumb but my group debates this heavily and we want to ask the broader community.

Personally, I see it as definitely having a mouth and that mouth is open. I fancy I can even make out some top row teeth

If we told you, you would lose the opportunity to continue to engage in this incredibly important and life shattering topic with your gaming buddies.

Why would we do that?

Open. He looks shocked. I'd not noticed a mouth on the actual card though.

I love these sorts of gamer micro-controversies, because they're so real.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Mouth closed -- a little bit of light on the lower lip, upper right (left as we look at it) lip, and bottom of the nose.

Personally, I have always thought that they were plaintively singing the song of their (genetically engineered) ancestors.

The mouth is closed. The light patch perceived by some to be a row of teeth is actually a highlight on the bottom lip, as a previous poster pointed out.

The being has a broad upper lip and a philtrum that casts half of it in shadow. The bottom of the nose is level with the lower edge of the eye.

Why for this life there's no man smart enough, life's too short for learning every trick and bluff.

Closed, for sure. All you open people are so wrong, and it is very important that you are made aware of this.

OK, important follow-up question about the dude on the ledge: Is his head tipped back and he has a really flat face, or is he looking forward and his skull is really flat?

Similarly, are the lower two aliens standing on the fossilized remains of the crocodilian creature from the card that is called something like "Primitive Species"?
