Academic Trivia Game (Monthly)

So, this is going to be similar to how my other trivia game thread is setup. This thread is going to cater more to the academic questions instead. I will not be going over Math in this game. Sorry, I have a math deficiency which I rather not mess up on that part of the game if I did a quiz over it. I’m going to make up some polls for you all to vote on. You will be granted the same badge as for the other Trivia game. It’s a neutral badge.

Which platform should we go with?
  • Human History
  • Prehistoric Creatures
  • Cryptozoology
  • Mythological Creatures (There is a difference)
  • Wars
  • Science of Earth
  • Literature
  • Animals
  • Weather
  • Ice Ages

Since this week’s theme is Greek Mythology I was thinking that would be a good subject to quiz on this week. Next time, we will go through the proper process but I wanted to go over this one so much! It’s my favorite mythology! So, I’m going to be making the game a hybrid guess poll game which means I will be using the old poll setup and the new poll setup.

@TriviaAttendees happy voting!

Quick question: I will be opening up two more trivia game threads on top of this one and the main trivia game thread. Those two will be in the Patron’s lounge and the Restricted Section. If you would like to participate in those two threads then you will need to become a patron to access the thread. You will get a badge if you win the game.

Do you want a separate tag for each game thread?
  • Yes, since I might not be interested in some of the threads.
  • No, I think the Trivia Attendees tag works just fine.

Some spelling errors occured, especially “Aris” was confusing in the last poll since Ares was also there… Did you mean Eris? :sweat_smile::thinking:

Nope, there is two beings in Greek Mythology that go by both names. Yeah, I think I misspelled Ares in the first group of polls. I think I put down the Zodiac name instead by accident.

You mentioned Hades twice for the last answer… :thinking:

Also Echidna is “The Mother of all Monsters”? When @unsungcheerio sees this I am in trouble… :scream_cat:

Is the answer to 23 Nyx or Hemera?

Edit: My bad, blue does not show the correct answer, but what I voted for. :see_no_evil:

Also @CrazyCaliope went on a solo trip for many answers, but for once the mainstream was closer to the truth. :sweat_smile:

Yeah, I messed up on the last question. That’s what I get for doing everything late at night.
