Default New Forums Forums Daily Trivia Contest

Thought some of you guys might like this. A Forums Forums Daily Trivia contest that keeps score and a running total. You do have to sign up to play but I think you'll find it worth it if you like trivia.

Try it out at:
http://www.funtrivia.com/private/main.cfm?tid=100905

Note, time to complete does matter and figure into your score.

Please share your thoughts on this, yay or nay.

Default Re: New Daily Trivia Contest

It is set up for General knowledge. Today I got all 10 right in 147 seconds to end up with a score of 853.

I can set the questions to be harder, but for now we are playing the default set of questions.

I wish that place allowed do-overs. Just as I started the damn cat started choking on a hairball and barfed on my lap! The timer
kept going while I was cleaning the chair and changing, so my time looks like a geological era.

Fun place, though.

Yeah, I know chit happens. I had no idea time was part of the equation. Makes sense though, a good way to grade. Tomorrows another day. I bet you'll kick butt.

I play Trivia on another site I belong to. At the end of the month all scores are added together by the system and there is the grading in the Hall of Fame for that month (and previous months) which you find in the link at the top of the page. Often the questions come up again every few weeks, although I never seem to learn! We need to remember to play every single day to get the best in ratings, and also to play as fast as possible.

And this game cuts no slack. We'll all learn and do better as we get used to it. I can't get to the site from my day job, so I have to wait until tonight to give it a shot.

Good luck everyone. I hope you'll try it.

We now have a list showing yesterdays top scores, that will be updated every day on FF entry page:

http://www.forumsforums.com/

I see we have a member 'everwet'. Which one of you dirty old men picked that name?

And all should see a image tied to a link to the daily trivia game near the top right of all forum pages. If you don't see it let me know which style you are using.

Here is what the image looks like (without the link):

Now Jerry, do you really think any of our classy woman members would pick a name like that? I'd sure bet against it being a woman.

They have to be speed reading, but to do that and get 9 or 10 right is downright impressive. I read them and think a bit and answer and I've been consistently 135 to 145 seconds. Over a minute longer than our speed reader. All that extra time and I still missed 3 today.

I don't know how they do it either. I thought I was pretty quick on the mouse but still took 130 seconds today.
