So do I. I almost had you Rudge, reckon I'd have got you if it wasn't for that missed day!

Almost certainly. Luckily for me, you did miss that one day. ;)

Thank you for mentioning - it is appreciated. As for changes to the line up - I think not. Especially the movie category as movie trivia is a specialty for me. The rest of the categories (some of which I chose a few months back) seem well balanced to me. Of course I am always open to discussion. Good Luck to everyone in the coming month but... I think we might all be battling for second place if a certain someone sticks around. Not that I am saying that is a bad thing mind you... I am just commenting.

Quite, although I'm still almost certain that, while I'm currently in first place, that won't be the case come 11 hours time!

Now, what did I say? ;)

Player count does seem to be up this month though, which is excellent. It had been a bit low for the past few months, but the past couple of days we've had 13 players! If you haven't played before, do join in!

Congratulations to Nite_Owl winning last month!

It seems we're having fewer and fewer people playing the quiz these days. The categories seem to be getting a bit stale, personally, they haven't been changed in months. Would you like to freshen things up a bit, Nite Owl?

Thank you. Since there seems to be an ever declining population of fourmites playing the Trivia Game these days (I think even Badger has given up) I am going to shake things up in the hopes of attracting a much larger crowd. Simpler categories with easier questions might do the trick. To that end I propose the following changes based on the list that Gord posted way back in the early pages of this thread.

Sunday - History 1
Monday - World Trivia 1
Tuesday - Fun Media Mixed Bag
Wednesday - Movies 1 (Of course I am keeping movies - just making it easier)
Thursday - Literature 1
Friday - Sports General (Easier)
Saturday - Celebrities (Easier)

As always I am open to other proposals and opinions.

Started taking this up again. I'm just gonna have to accept that I know sod all about American sport. I did amazingly get the question about the NRL correct. Good old Rugby League, only Australia and Northern England take it seriously, the kiwis take part just so they can confirm their place as the home of Rugby.
