About the Quiz Maker
MSUKent has been a registered Sporcle user since 2011, and has over 350 published quizzes. He is constantly coming up with ways to keep Sporcle users coming back to his quizzes, and we can predict that this trend will continue!
What’s the Quiz About?
The title said it all with this quiz. You are given one item representative of an unnamed group, and it’s your job to come up with the rest of the set! Sounds simple enough, right?
In theory, yes, but you can never anticipate when Sporclitis will strike. The brain is in finicky beast, and the random things that come from it can really surprise you. This ‘simple’ quiz embodies that perfectly, and made it a touch harder than it looks.
What Did Users Think?
As mvs considered one of the topics, the thought process went as follows: ‘OK, Cosecant. There’s Endor, Hoth, Alderaan, Kashyyyk, maybe they’ll count the Death Star… oh wait…’
ronnymexico commented: ‘Still missing you Pluto!’
And finally, I270Exit1 noted that age might also play a factor in what the brain will allow you to remember: ‘I got the Beatles right away because I’m over 40. I had trouble with the trig because I’m over 40.’
With over 34,000 game plays and a 4.5 rating on May 23rd alone, Give You One, Guess the Rest was a quiz that shows classic information can hold it’s own on the homepage.
