Who's the cleverest on here?

Post by Gord »

Lets find out,

Here's a daily quiz to take part in...i've done these on other forums and they are quite fun.

Its cummulates the scores over a month, creates a league table and at the end of each month we'll have a winner!

http://my.funtrivia.com/tournament/TT-F ... 90722.html

Each day, highest score in the fastest time winds...i've let it on deault settings to start with, but if people like it, i'll start setting a different category for each day!

Hmmm interesting idea. I didn't do too badly but a couple of questions about the 80s let me down...

Crap. I am only second. I failed some of the less non-native oriented questions, but that's fine. I'll get to you in the end

Hmm, 7/10. Seems to be the average score so far.

May the force be with you.

Not necessarily. I didn't look anything up and managed to set at least one record. Two if not counting Benny. :mrgreen:

Same here, I just took a bit more time to read everything.

Is there going to be a new quiz tomorrow already?

Theres automatically a new quiz every day. I can set it to be a different category each day of the week though, meaning each day every week will have its own category....i'm going to go and set that now i think!

There, thats done, now you'll see what category is coming up depending on the day of the week!

You'll see i've alternated between easy and intermediate questions each day.

I may change the categories now and again so be alert! (Particularly if anyone develops an uncatchable lead!)

To make things fair...i can pass quiz admin duties onto another player....how about we say the winner of each month wins admin rights to the quiz for the next month and gets to pick the categories? (We'd have to trust each other that the admin duties would get passed on!)

Sorry to break it to you but I might win the useless/odd facts part. I try to memorize Wikipedia and it's sources on a daily basis. :P
