Has anyone done this? It has spread through my office like wildfire. Highly addictive and highly entertaining games.

I've meant to post that here a number of times and always forgot. I've wasted countless hours on there since someone showed me it at school last fall.

I'm sure a number of people here will like it, for the sports section alone, let alone all of the other categories.

had a lot of fun a few weeks ago with some of the sports ones, as well as the older sport video game ones like Tecmo Bowl, NBA Jam, etc.

I've written a handful of quizzes that were published by them. Now they have a feature to let anyone create a quiz and post it for play.

I've been working on a series of all-time team quizzes (Most games played by position for each franchise).

Here's what I have done.

Cubs
Red Sox
Diamondbacks
Rockies
Orioles
Braves
Marlins
Astros
White Sox
Tigers
Reds
Indians

They limit how many you can make in a month so I won't have more posted until November.

I used to have a problem with sporcle, but then I stopped drinking cheap beer.

The correct terminology the quiz was looking for was: Roofie Colada. :-?

You must have got a "bonus answer," meaning it's not included in the 7 you have to guess, but if you get it, they will add it to the list. It's hard to explain, but once you get them on some other quizzes it makes sense.
