    Yeah, there's no reason for this to be sequential, especially because the clues don't seem to be arranged in order of difficulty. This quiz would be greatly improved by unlocking the order.
  2. Drawing a Blank: Harry Potter

    Wish you could skip ones you don't know.
  3. Drawing a Blank: Harry Potter

    Please change this quiz to either not be sequential, or be sorted easier to harder. I shouldn't need to remember Madame Maxime's first name in order to get to Luna and Malfoy.

    Why do I get the feeling that someone had a bunch of comments deleted?
  5. Drawing a Blank: Harry Potter
    22
    This quiz is bizarre in terms of difficulty. Why should you need to know Amycus Carrow to get to Luna, Cedric or Petunia, for example? There's no reason for it to be sequential.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! We've changed the quiz to a regular forced order so you can now skip questions.

    Well, I was going to comment, but it seems the world and his dog has already said what I was going to, so I won't. Should mention though that I loved the idea of the quiz, it's just that... well, you know.
