MLB World Series Winners Minefield: The Sporcle Featured Quiz of the Week

WINNERS

We think all our featured quizzes are great, but once a week we find a quiz published within the last 7 days that went the extra mile.

This week’s quiz is MLB World Series Winners Minefield by Sporcle User jjpn73.

What’s the Quiz About?

Still feeling the rush from the MLB World Series’ conclusion? Look no further, and test your baseball history! The minefield is simple: click the teams that have won the World Series. If you get click a wrong answer, the quiz will explode and end. But have no fear, you have two whole minutes to click 22 teams – time goes slower than you think.


Say Goodbye to Text Memorizer & Interpretive Quizzes

It’s fall cleaning time at Sporcle — and we’re bidding farewell to a couple of quiz types.

text-memorizer-screenshot

Text memorizer: This quiz type was from the early days of Sporcle. All published text memorizer quizzes now appear in classic quiz form.

Interpretative: This quiz type was an experiment. It was fun, and for a while Sporcle HQ was busy making and taking personality quizzes. But alas, it was not to be. If you want more of these types of quizzes, we recommend you check out OctoQuiz.

Note: If you created an Interpretative quiz, you will find the quiz in your quiz dashboard. All interpretative quizzes have been turned into classic quizzes and appear publicly as ‘admin removed’. But your data is still there.

Write to us at feedback@sporcle.com if you have questions.

 

New Badges: Country Club, The Historian, and 007

Hungary for badges?

Country Club Icon - Club SandwichCountry Club: Technically, bacon, tomato, and toasted bread aren’t countries yet. Until a visionary soul remedies this situation, you should just stick to Turkey. For this badge, lettuce play 197 quizzes with the Country tag.

The Historian Icon - ColiseumThe Historian: They say history is written by the victors, but somehow there’s still no bestseller on The Great Emu War of 1932. We’re waiting, emus. In the meantime, earn this badge by playing 25 History quizzes in one day.

Bond Badge - Bond Silhouette on Green Background007: To marathon of all the Bond films, you’d need over 50 hours… and you wouldn’t even get a badge after all that. It’d be a lot easier to celebrate the new movie by getting 100% on James Bond Movies for the 007 badge.

As always, check the badge page for the latest updates.
