The-Blue-Album

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 Sorting Blitz: Musicians by Sporcle User nopurplesky.

What’s the Quiz About?

For this quiz, all you have to do is sort musicians into male artist, female artist, and band. That should be easy, right? Wrong! These are all one-word musicians, so there’s no last name to help you out. Since this is a sorting blitz, you have to click them in the given pattern, in this case, it’s male musician, band, female musician, band. You only get to see the pattern once, so it’s up to you to remember what you need to click next. Oh, and this is both a minefield and a blitz, so click quickly but carefully.
