This is an interesting quiz, but I think you need to somehow inform people when the pattern skips a letter. Once the pattern is determined, you would expect it to follow 1 letter after the other, but there's several instances where it skips.

I think it's fine. From the number of answers, it's obvious that some letters are skipped, so determining which ones is just part of the challenge. And announcing that the answers correspond to letters right off the bat would probably give the pattern away too easily.
Although in this case, skipping Z is unnecessary: [Custom t-shirt website] is reasonably well-known. Maybe iglew just wanted the columns to line up, though.

I agree that it adds to the challenge, so I guess I'd have to concede to your argument there.
Also, I didn't mean to have a blatant reference to the pattern. Maybe just an asterisk at the end of clues which precede breaks in the pattern itself as a bit of a hint.

I think the problem is that as there are multiple possible answers for the majority of the questions, you just end up guessing and can't get enough answers to establish the link, and it only becomes obvious once you 'give up'.

I found it to be just fine just as it is. I like the challenge. And as strange as this may sound, I LIKE that I fooled myself into thinking I had the pattern (I got a lot of double-letter words, and falsely assumed the pattern was 6-letters with a double-letter). So when I finally decided to give up, I was obliged to present myself with a rueful face-palm, but I was STILL very satisfied with the game.

I skipped around because I didn't know a lot of the answers right off so I didn't get the pattern until I read the comments. My fault not the quiz. Good job, iglew.

I agree with needapausebutton. I got the B and C answers first, thought I had the pattern of [blank, blank, double letter...], and then realized that wasn't it. But I kept going, got more answers, and the pattern finally dawned on me. Great idea! Let's have more of these!

I did the same thing as needapausebutton at first - I got the ones with a double letter first, which of course were also in alphabetical order. Nice misdirection!
