Well done! I find the quiz is fun sometimes when I make a guess and find out it's correct, and so I can learn something.

Well done! The more you play the better the speed reading gets. Mind you I hit "snowfall" instead of "snowball" the other day so mistakes can still happen.

Sometimes the quiz is faulty. Vampires aren't afraid of bladed weapons; any damn fool knows that. If it were so they wouldn't just heal up when they got stabbed. Knives, pitchforks, scythes, all mean nothing to a vampire.

Good news for me: Yesterday I actually made 4th place.
Bad news for me: Today I missed the first question and nearly missed another. Time wasted. Meh

Yesterday we must have pressed the finish button at nearly the same time, because we earned identical points and I didn't think it was possible. Time wasted is debatable; you can be as competitive or non-competitive as you like. For me it seems to work best if I don't try to over think the question. If I don't know the answer, the one that looks right at first glance is often right, and since I'm guessing anyway, nothing ventured. I try to hang out somewhere in the middle of the pack, but if I can't then I don't care too much. Look at ECK getting them all right!

Yes it's a regular occurance to get the same number of points, at the tp there may well be two points difference between 1 and 2, and even 2 and 3. This means that where there are 24 players, then as the lowest score given is usually 3 there may well only be 18 points to be given to 20 or 21 players, therfore some have to get the same number.

Geography was a specific request for a topic by people on here, so I added it.
