I have, in the past, been a regular contributor of these games, but the change a letter and the Towns game have gone a bit stale....by that, I mean the same answers are coming up.
I have never registered for the Trivia Quiz...you have to get a password and I think you can only play once a day.
It is all about what floats your boat - and how much time you have to spend.
Other quizzes hava always gone down well......the ones that Kate did were very good and had lots of people contributing.

If you want to put some kind of quiz up to test what I am saying, I think you will find plenty of folk are interested.

I agree Margaret - the quizzes Kate put up were always fun and interesting and they attracted a lot of interest from a range of members.
Things do go in phases so maybe there'll be a resurge of interest at some point or if someone thinks up an interesting challenge.

The Trivia Quiz has had a bit of a downturn too over the last couple of months going from 15 regulars to 10 -hopefully some will start to play again as the saying goes: The more the merrier!

Can only echo some of the above posts, repetitive use of the same words & as to the towns, seems like some people were just looking through an atlas, I at least tried to accompany the towns I mentioned with a picture I'd taken, to at least show I'd been there.

Haha, Margaret, you will find this a doddle, and wishing someone else would post.

Have put the rules in caps.

Until Katex's quiz is up, I've just hidden a thimble.

That's a shame John and I am the chief culprit, sorry about that.

I was lucky to be online just as she posted the quiz and once I get the bit between my teeth there's no stopping me.

Perhaps in future Kate should give advance warning and say she is going to post a quiz at such and such a time.

There are still a few questions left unsolved but I think you will need your glasses on to make out the pics.
