The Ultimate Gaming Quiz

Okay, this is going to be a fun competition for anyone to participate in to find out who has the most knowledge in both video games and tabletop games.

Every few days, I’ll post a new question or two after closing the previous one(s). Then I’ll calculate the scores in the OP. It’s as simple as that. Just try to use your own knowledge and not go looking up the answers until after the poll is closed.
Want to chat about the questions, answers, or even future ones, then feel free to do so below. (wink)

You get 2 points for every correct answer, unless it’s only a two-option poll and then it’s worth one point.

Rule Change: To make it harder for those reaching high scores, once a user reaches 50 points then they will start subtract points with every wrong answer. So if the user who is over 50 gets a wrong answer on a two-pointer then they lose those two points rather than stay on the same score.

@/Gamers - watch this thread if you wanna answer the questions.



A Tally of those in league to become…

    Charlie Horse, Water on the Knee, and Writer’s Cramp. Plus, Brain Freeze was added in 2004 after the creator asked fans to vote for the one they wanted. It won against the other two in the poll.

I think mine’s a bit… wrong :eyes:
