Back to School Week Day 2 – Challenge Your Friends

Back to School Week
Welcome to Sporcle Back to School week day 2. We had a pretty great time yesterday playing some fun games on Facebook and Twitter and featuring some great quizzes throughout the summer. We may have even confounded a few of you with the Literal Musicians Quiz.

Today, however we’re not just focusing on great quizzes, we want you to check out our new and revised challenge page. If you’ve never challenged a friend to a Sporcle quiz, it’s easy. Here’s what you have to do:

  1. Sign up for an account.
  2. Find your friends on Sporcle.
  3. Follow them (and make sure they follow you back.)
  4. Let the challenging begin!
Afterwards, you can check out your challenge history and overall challenge ranking at your Sporcle challenge page. You can also play challenges against the Sporcle-bot. If you win enough, you just might make our challenge leaderboards.
If you’re looking for something to challenge your friends with, check out some of our featured summer quizzes after the jump.

Welcome to ‘Back to School’ Week on Sporcle

Back to School Week


Welcome to Back to School week on Sporcle! This week we’re aiming to get your school year started off right and highlight some of the great quizzes we’ve featured over the last three months. This week we’re going to be not only highlighting great quizzes but also running some fun contests, so be sure to check back all week on the Sporcle Blog as well as on Facebook and Twitter for more info. Now, on to the quizzes.

The biggest development of the last few months is the the development of the Sporcle wrong answer quiz. Call them Landmines, Minefield quizzes or Booby Traps, some of these wrong answer quizzes are filled with tension as you begin to type in your next answer. You wonder to yourself, just how many times has Cho Chang been mentioned in Harry Potter? or Which states border Ohio? We also introduced some great This or That style quizzes like The Beatles or Rebecca Black quiz as well as as the always-entertaining Drug or Pokemon quiz.

After the jump, be sure to check out some more excellent Sporcle quizzes from over the summer.
