What’s the Quiz About?

‘Can it Follow No?’ is a quiz that draws you in from the title and game icon alone. With Grumpy Cat staring you down, you are asked to select sets of letters that can follow ‘no’ to make a 4-letter word.

It seems like it would be easy, but with a quick time limit of 1 minute, it’s actually more difficult than one might think. The results indicate this as well, showing that only 4.4% of quiz-takers are able to locate all 15 correct answers. But hey, we love the challenge!

What Did Users Think?

And finally shoelessgirl commented: ‘Despite having lead an archery group for a number of years, do you think I could identify nock as a word?’

On August 29th, ‘Can it Follow No?’ was played nearly 32,000 times, and ended up with a 4.3 rating. It’s one of those quizzes where after 60 seconds and 15 clicks, you leave happy knowing you either kicked butt, or learned something to share with the grandkids.
