Tricky State Capital Click

About the Quizmaker

Butterfly75 made Tricky State Capital Click and it’s her first quiz to be published. She’s made three other quizzes. She’s been on Sporcle since March 2011 and has played just over 6,000 games. She has 93 badges. Great job, butterfly75.

What’s the Quiz About?

This quiz lives up to its name. It’s a tricky way to find out how well you know the US state capitals. This clickable quiz has decoys throughout, all of which will end the game if you click them. That’s right, this quiz is a minefield. Hidden among Little Rock, Atlanta, and Denver are Seattle, New Orleans, and Louisville. The time limit is something you have to think about as well, as you have only 2 minutes to find the correct capitals. This quiz is over a topic that most people learned in middle school, so you should know the right answers. It’s frustrating to get an answer wrong because you know you can do better. So you try again. How many times will it take you to get 100%? It took me 6 tries. Can you do better?

What did Users Think?

 Yeti_ commented “Good quiz butterfly75, make more of these!”

kenweaver said “Man, I knew my grandfather and parents excessively drilling me on state capitals in Kindergarten would eventually pay off. Got all in :58. Awesome quiz.”

And rddiid97 commented “Capitals in any variation……………always fun”

Tricky State Capital Click did very well during its stay on the front page. It was played 60,748 times and finished with a rating of 4.1.

A-B-C-D-E Quiz

Featured October 6, 2014

 

About the Quizmaker

A-B-C-D-E Quiz was made by cwfuturewrestler, and is his first quiz to be published. He’s contributed 95 games, many of which have been editor or curator picks. He’s been a user on Sporcle since July 2011, and since then has played over 8,000 games. He has 101 badges total. Congrats on your first publish, cwfuturewrestler!

What’s the Quiz About?

The concept of this quiz is easy enough. You have 3 minutes to click A-B-C-D-E in that order, as many times as you can. There are 150 letters to click. Beware, if you make a mistake, the quiz will end. You’ll have to try again if you want 100%. The short amount of time and the large amount of letters made many users make mistakes in their clicking order. Starting off this quiz, you’ll feel confident, like you’ve got this in the bag. You’re going to get that 100%. But when you get to the halfway point, all the letters will start melting together. ‘Is that a B or an E? Maybe it’s a C? What am I even looking for?’ When you get to this point, you need to refocus your eyes and calm down a bit. Take your time, figure out if you’re looking at a B or an E. If you aren’t too frantic in your clicking, you should be able to get the coveted 100%.

What did Users Think?

Christus said ‘I like this unexpected quiz. Thanks for creating it and congrats on publishing.’

Paco777 commented ’100% with 4 seconds left…Who thought strategy could be used in this game?’

And butterfly_2011 commented ’12 seconds left! It really helps when you scroll down just enough to hide the clock, you’re more relaxed and focused :) Great quiz! I’d love to see one with lower-case b’s, d’s, p’s, and q’s.’

A-B-C-D-E Quiz had a great day on the front page. It was played 42,285 times and ended up with a rating of 3.6. It seems we Sporclers really know our A, B, C’s.

Sporcle Speed-Picking

About the Quiz Maker

This week’s featured game was created by BillyJoelRulez, and this is his second game published. He’s been on Sporcle since June 2010 and has played over 18,000 games. He’s earned 113 out of 115 badges (wow!) and has contributed 154 games. He’s the curator of our Mario and Console subcategories as well. Thanks for being amazing, BillyJoelRulez.

What’s the Quiz About?

With 50 questions and only two minutes to complete this quiz, you have only 2.4 seconds for each question. There are ten categories, each with five answers. For example, when the category European Countries comes up, you have to find the five countries hidden among answers like Missouri, Up, Rocky, and Lincoln. With other categories like U.S. States and Pixar Movies, this may seem like an easy task. But this is where you’ll run into trouble. If you let your guard down and forget about the time limit, you’ll run out of time faster than you can spell Kyrgyzstan.

Take a deep breath, stretch a little, and click play.

What Did Users Think?

brewersbadgers1 said ‘Took me three tries, that was an excellent quiz. I sure have a knack for finding four out of 5 every time…’

Rinaldo made us laugh when he commented ‘I’m just WAITING for someone to say that the time needs to be reduced on this one!’

And helix212 filled Rinaldo’s request when he wrote ‘First try with 4 seconds to spare. Way too much time. :)’

This quiz had a marvelous time on the homepage, where it was played over 36,000 times and came out of it all with a rating of 4.4.
