Gaming Quizzes

First there was Atari, then Nintendo with Super Mario Bros and Zelda, now there are Pokemon Games and Modern Warfare. No matter what type of online games you play, whether video games or board games, there is a gaming quiz for you at Sporcle. Can you name all of the chess pieces or remember all the properties in our Monopoly quiz? Or maybe remembering all of the NFL players on the Madden Football covers game is more your thing. Try your luck at any of these gaming quizzes before the clock runs out.

    I tried several (incorrect) spellings of Mille borne. I loved that game but couldn't spell it correctly last time it showed up in sporcle either. One day sporcle, one day.

    @ESK -- No way! Had I known this I could have more easily shut down my adjective loving friends who tried to count "big blue birds" as 3 points for "things in the sky"....

    @eyes355: The fact that the "guarantee only works if black's last move was d5" isn't a problem, because black's last move *must* have been d5. The black rooks and black bishop have nowhere they could have come from at all. Neither knight could have just moved; the only open squares they could have moved from would have been places where the white king was in check. The queen has five squares she could have moved from, but those, too, would have been squares where the white king would have been in check. The king can't have just moved to e7--obviously he can't have moved from d6, but any other square he could have moved from, the bishop on f8 would have been checking the white king before the move.

    That almost leaves the pawns, but first there are two other possibilities: (1) the black king could have *captured* a piece on e7, which would have been blocking the check from the bishop, making it a legal move; or (2) the black knight at c1 could have just *promoted*. The problems with both of these possibilities is the pawn at g3. Since black's g7 pawn hasn't moved, the pawn at g3 can only have gotten there by capturing from the f rank. And white still has fifteen pieces on the board, meaning that black has only made one capture. Thus, the king cannot have captured at e7; nor could a pawn have promoted to c1, since it would have either had to have moved from c2 (but since the c7 pawn is still in place, it would have had to capture to get there), or captured from b2 or b2.

    That really does just leave the pawns, and again, since the g3 pawn captured from the f rank, it didn't just move; nor did the pawns still on their home row. So the pawn at d5 must have just moved, and it can't have moved from d6 (or it would have been putting the white king in check). Ergo, the *only* possible last move for black was to advance the pawn from d7 to d5, which is why MikeN is right to guarantee that white has a possible move that mates in one; no "only ifs" needed!

    Considering that every time you try to type Gen 1 in order, Pidgeot pops up while you try to type Pidgeotto... you'd think I would have remembered that fairly obvious one.

    I played plenty of euchre in Ontario (Canada) but never really liked the game much, to the point that although I knew the answer I couldn't remember what it was called. I prefer cribbage.
