A quiz

Amarth 7 years ago
Okay, time for another little forum game. This one only takes 10 minutes or so, but it's kind of fun.

I'll be giving 10 questions. Everyone can PM me their answers to those questions, but there is a catch. For every correct answer, your score is the amount of people that have also given that answer. For every wrong answer, your score is the amount of people that are playing. Lower score is better of course, with 10 a perfect score. So basically, you need to find unique answers.

Of course, this is only fun if many people join in, so please take a little bit of time to send me a PM with your answers. I'll take answers until Sunday, 23h59 UTC.

I'll go with game-related questions. If it's a success, we can go for more rounds with other types of questions of course, but I think games are a good theme to begin with.

The questions:
1: Name a game with at least 5 words in its title.
2: Name a game released on at least 4 platforms.
3: Name a game with "4", "four" or "IV" (meaning 4) in its title.
4: Name a game featuring a monkey.
5: Name an alien race (NOT a fantasy race) from a video game.
6: Name a game featuring suicide.
7: Name a game featuring a plumber.
8: Name a game with a lead designer with first name "John".
9: Name a movie based on a game.
10: Name a game featuring school.

PM you answers to me, feel free to ask questions if anything is unclear. Results posted somewhere next week I suppose.

Although I don't think there's more people here actually. Sad.

Curse you, Wolfenstein 3D for ruining my otherwise-perfect score!

On the other hand, hey, 1 point off perfect isn't bad.
#
Murska 7 years ago
Aww. Lost by one point.
#
Narvius 7 years ago
Aww. Lost by four points.

Hows about a second round? ^.^
#
Amarth 7 years ago
I doubt there's enough interest. 5 people actually isn't that much for a game like this. It's also kinda hard to find good questions. If I hear some more support for another round I might run one more.
#
Narvius 7 years ago
Actually, I'd like to see what answers would the same question yield if the already-given ones were banned.
#
MageKing17 7 years ago
As long as the plumber question is cut, sure. ;P

Why? There's like 2 billion games with Mario alone. And I suppose there are other plumbers out there, somewhere.
#
Narvius 7 years ago
I failed the plumber question miserably <.<

That's the point... it's inevitably going to be a Mario game, as I'm sure we got all the non-Mario plumbers in the first round, so it's just going to be "Mario roulette" to see who gets points and who doesn't. I'd rather just skip the whole damned thing, thank you very much.

*shrug* that's just one question out of 10. Don't whine about it. Besides, it'd be funny if you picked the same game anyway.

And I can think of another one without Mario like right now. There have to be more. Show your creative/investigative side.

Although perhaps it could be turned into a new game... you have to keep coming up with answers that haven't been said yet (although that means the plumber question will last at the very least through the entire Mario franchise ).
