ManvsMini Posted January 1, 2022 Share Posted January 1, 2022 Happy 2022 to you all! Anyone who frequents the Randomness thread knows I love trivia, due to last year's daily postings. This year I thought we'd change it up, and instead of telling you directly, let's play a game and test your knowledge. Thus, a quiz throughout the year! Basically, if you've done pub/bar quiz before or ever watched Jeopardy, this works similarly. Here's the rules/how it works: Each day I'll post a question (time will vary, as my schedule is going to be varying daily for the next several months). Do NOT, repeat, do NOT post your answer! Write it down at home, make a spreadsheet or document, write it on a napkin, say it out loud, whatever, but don't post the answer so that others can have a chance to view the question. No Googling or looking up the answers. You either know it when you read the question or you don't. (Honor system here, this is all for fun.) At the end of a round of questions, I'll post the answers in a spoiler (most likely after a week's worth of questions). If you got the correct answer to a question, you get a point. Yes, more than one person can get a point for the question (thus why you do NOT post your answers!). There might be bonus points to questions. At the end of the year, we'll see who has the most points. Simple as that. Rules will be updated as needed to clarify anything. I've got several editions of Trivial Pursuit to pull questions from (hard and easy versions), they could come from Jeopardy, other trivia shows, news headlines, etc. I'll do my best to keep a fair array of questions so that everyone, regardless of where you live and your age, can play along. Any category/question that needs explaining will have an example provided before the question. I'll do my best to make sure the answers are accurate at the time of writing, but I'm only human, so if you suspect an answer is incorrect, politely post in here and we'll investigate, and throw the question out if need be. If you have a question as to whether your answer is valid after a round of questions, feel free to post too. Will there be a prize? The mantle of Winner of the Big Fat Quiz Throughout the Year 2022! Oh, you mean a physical prize? No, there isn't (and I'd have to check forum rules on that). Remember, we're working on the honor system for not looking up answers and making sure you grade your own points fairly, so please stick to the spirit of the game. Hope this will be a fun activity for anyone participating (and anyone can!). The quiz commences soon! -MvM 7 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
