I submitted one answer during the first stage and after it zoomed out the only thing it helped was to show me I was wrong on my first guess so yeah, definitely not going to score super well, ha!

And I'm a little confused on the theme as it certainly appears that everything was zoomed in on a nose but some of them are decidedly un-noselike. Like one looks like a racecar. But I guess it could still be some nose equivalent but while zoomed in so much it looks like something else? That's definitely throwing me off, though.

You are not alone - I am sure you will all do MUCH better from the 15th onward. :)

There's not that much of a picture theme this time (the "zoom out" is the theme!), for the 3rd and 4th row I just gathered a few 4K screenshots and thought it would be funny to have them all start on the nose. So don't try to see a nose in everything! :D

"That's a penis!"

I'm sorry guys! :p



I once had the plan to make a penis quiz (like the boobies riddle years ago), but couldn't find 25 entries. ;) Beyond the five you see here, I only had a Larry game, GTA 4, Gynoug and some japanese nonsense. How many more do you know?? :help

But yeah, eventually I thought that the five of this current round should be enough.

Anyway, the fourth zoom level is online as of yesterday. It seems to be getting easier now! :)

September Quiz - an experiment that solves itself

level 1
level 2
level 3
level 4

I will post one more (level 5 on tuesday), then I'll take a break with posting and you'll have to remind yourself to check on the quiz page for the new update.

I keep forgetting to take the time to submit answers. I knew stuff during levels 3 and 4 where I could have gotten more points but never submitted anything. Poo.

Alright, this self-solving quiz is almost done - we are on the penultimate stage, on wednesday you will briefly get the full screenshot (which you will get few points for) and then the round is over!

I suggest you use the remaining days of the month to join in - so far there's 86 players. :)

As per usual I forgot to return and answer things. I did yesterday and believe I answered all of them but the points value will sure be low for the last six or seven I answered.

October Quiz - Gaming Celebrities

Sometimes there are big names in a video game - be it the designer, a la "Joe Average presents Action Fight 2" or the protagonist, for example "Action Fight 2 starring Joe Average". That's the titles this round is about, those that have a famous developer, a sports star or a pop starlet to boost their chance of success. Do you know them all? :)

For the correct name of the game you get one point.
Should you not know it, you can still get half a point for the name of the designer (if it's in the title) or the protagonist.

Deadline is Saturday the 31st of October, participate via October Quiz - Celebrity Games 🤩

Here is the quiz, have fun!

The red carpet is out, spotlights are on, photographers are ready... the stars and starlets of this round are waiting to be recognised by all of you! Will you join the 45 users (none from here) that are already in the crowd? :)

For the correct name of the game you get one point. Should you not know it there's still half a point in the name of the "star".

Here are the clues:

1) Number four is a strategy classic, where you have to lead your tribe from the stone age into the far future.
2) The stars of the titles 1,6,7,8,15,19 and 21 are athletes.
3) The third row doesn't show anything ingame, instead they're all covers.
4) The celebs of the 10 and 20 are novelists.

Deadline is Saturday the 31st of October, participate via October Quiz - Celebrity Games 🤩

I just spent about 30 minutes looking for a game for one of the images because I was absolutely certain it was from a thing I knew, but just hadn't seen a game version of. Gave up, only to accidentally find it 10 minutes later and it's not from the thing I thought it was at all.

Hello,

Just submitted my answers. Also my first time entering the Monthly Quiz. Pls give bonus points, thx. :blobmorning2:
The hints were certainly helpful!

I have no idea what numbers 10, 21. 23, 24 & 25 are though so I've left that empty, and 19 is a guess based on a previous answer.

Hey Valdien, welcome to the quiz. :)
Just checked, I see you entered the celebrity names, but not the game titles. That only gets you half a point for each entry - if you instead enter the name of the game, you get a full point.

You can update your entries whenever you want by just submitting another time.

October Quiz - Clues #2

All the stars of this round have assembled, and it turns out one is really famous, 9 out of 10 users know right away who it is... and another one unfortunately has it the other way around. This fits perfectly, as those two celebrities come from the first and last entry in this quiz. ;)

So far there are 62 users attending (three from here), maybe some more of you want to join? The quiz ends in one week!

Here are the last clues:

1) Number 5 is a famous youtuber (active for over 15 years) with millions of subscribers.
2) The celebrities shown in the games 2,9,11,14,22 and 23 are musicians.
3) Game 10 is a modern 3rd person shooter, there's also a sequel.
4) With title 15 we have a first person shooter for ps2, xbox, GBA and the DS.

Deadline is Saturday the 31st of October, Participate via October Quiz - Celebrity Games 🤩

This is the first month I spent some significant time on looking up stuff and I feel pretty good about it. :blobmorning2:
But man, it's also a bummer that I just can't place that one screen at all and all attempts at creative googling turned up nothing useful at all. :thinking-blob:

Very curious to see the results and the correct answers. :heroblob:
