Hmm, so I guess I'll leave it here for now... see how people like the four 'A' quizzes. Maybe letter 'B' comes out next weekend.

Easy, Medium, and Hard were fairly easy, but it was a big step to Insane. If they were more incremental, it would be better. Great concept, though, and this last one was my favourite of the four. The increase in time for each one looks fine to me.

I gave these to my partner to try out first, and he's not a logophile like some of us are. He thought that the Medium one was hard, the Hard one impossible, and the Insane one entirely pointless and stupid. My thinking was that the four levels of difficulty could cater to whoever was playing, and people could select which ones they wanted to play. I tried to judge what the increments should be as best I could knowing it was a matter of perspective and basically what you know off your own back. I agree with you that Insane was a big step up, and I'm now working through the rest of the alphabet with that in mind. Glad you enjoyed these, though, and I take your feedback on board.

It gets a little easier to decipher (Not a ton) what means what even if you havent seen the word if you have taken Latin. I noticed some latin that pointed to what the word meant. Also, I did know a couple words like alpenglow and altissimo.

Another typo: anthelmintHic. Also from what I can see, appui is a noun, not a verb.
