Featured Game of the Week (7/31/14)

Over here in Sporcle-land, we’ve been thinking about ways to spice the blog up a bit and get regular content out there for our loyal readers to peruse. To that end, we’re writing a weekly blog post featuring a quiz published within the last 7 days that really wowed us.

About the Quiz Maker

Larryholmes79 has been an avid Sporcler since February of 2012, and has played over 4,700 quizzes on the site. Currently the curator for ‘Movie Quotes’, he is all about the cinema! With 19  publishes in the movie category, expect to see more of Larryholmes79 coming to a home page near you.

What’s the Quiz About?

This quiz is deceptively difficult. The object of the game is to name the movie title based on the male lead, whose name conveniently appears in the title. It sounds easy, right? You start off strong, but then you find yourself muttering…”what was his name?!” or “what was that movie called?!” over and over again,  face/palming because “that guy” isn’t an acceptable answer to many of the fantastic images this quiz provides.

The movie buffs might scoff, but Larryholmes79 isn’t just a movie trivia amateur – he knows his stuff. Only 4.5% of people rose to the challenge and were able to successfully name all the movies on their first try.

Well-played, Larryholmes79, well played…or should we say…Tyler Durden?

What Did Users Think?

BonnieH channeled the above mentioned frustration when she said: ‘Darn it. I finally recognized Scott Pilgrim but couldn’t remember the rest of the movie title. Conquers the World? Meets the World? (No, that’s Boy Meets World)…’

Many users were excited to see their favorite movies.

tashmar finished by asking that infamous question we were all thinking: ‘What about Bob? Maybe for the sequel.’

On July 26th, ’30 Male Title Characters’ was played over 17,944 times, and ended up with a 4.5 rating. If that isn’t enough for a quiz to be named ‘Featured Game of the Week’, we don’t know what is! Great work Larryholmes79, this one was a star.
