    The point of the game is pretty simple. In a PM to me, answer each of the 10 questions below.

    Try to think of the most popular answer, to get the most people matching you. You don't want a unique answer, you have to answer with what you think everyone else will give.


    *****FORMATTING OF ANSWERS IS IMPORTANT!*****

    Write your answers like this; Do not repeat the questions, no fullstops at the end of answers, no spaces between lines, no comments, no fancy list coding. If you need to comment or clarify your answers, do it AFTER the list of answers. Thanks.

    JUST LIKE THIS:

    1. answer <<--- There is a space after the full stop!!
    2. answer2
    3. answer3


    Scoring - Any answer duplicated by anyone else is worth 100 points divided by the number of entrants. For example: if 20 people play then its 5 pts per answer. If 4 people match the same answer then that means they each get 4 * 5 (20pts) for that answer. No matches = 0 points.



    If you need to comment or clarify a question then do it in thread. And if you could reply once you've sent me a PM it'll help keep the thread on page 1, thanks!

    So if your answer is wrong, but a lot of people say it, what happens? Question that got me thinking this is the state capitol question.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 10,912 Mod ✭✭✭✭Ponster


    On the first one I accepted all incorrect answers but with this second one it's a question-by-question basis really. I've already received a wrong answer for example for Question 10 but as others are unlikely to repeat it I'll leave it alone.

    If though several people all name the same city and it isn't a state capitol then they'll get zero points.

    Yeah it's filling up pretty quickly. I never though I'd get so many entries and I haven't even post the Boards.ie Quiz yet :)

    I'll keep on taking entries until 2 days go by without an entry (or when I get 40 replies whichever comes first).

    Ok folks.....


    Due to a LOT of PMs from people from people who all got confused about question number 6 I'm going to change things and give some people
    some help. (the question is very badly worded and wasn't meant to mislead people, sorry).


    Please pay careful attention to the question and if you want to keep your original answer then you have nothing to do. If you want to resubmit and answer then just go ahead and PM me. Everyone expect cacio has submitted a correct answer but it may not be the one you wish to keep if you discover that you misread the question.



    Question 6 : Name a state capitol
