Edit - bollucks I've realised what 24 is, can I get a bonus point? :P
Hey, you can easily update your submission many times - Just enter username, forum and all additional titles you just found out, leaving everything else blank.

Once the deadline passes, all entries with the same username/forum combo will be joined!

So no need for fancy points, just update your answers with what you think #24 is. :)
Fantastic as I realised 2 more after a bit of studying! Fingers crossed I do better this time.

November quiz - hints #1

Hey, November is already half over? Did you all join the quiz yet and solved every last pixel there is?? ;)

So far there are 21 participants, three of which are from this community.

Here are some hints, to help with the hardest titles and most common mistakes:

1) game Nr.2 is a racing game.
2) number 7 is a scifi strategy game from the current decade.
3) title #17 is an Amiga game, a rather generic 90s platformer (solved by no one!).
4) with the 18 we see the first installment of a famous RPG series (solved by no one!).
5) and at last - game 21 is about a famous civil war.


I wish you good fortune, and don't forget: the correct answer is the name of the game, not the character!

The deadline is Thursday, 30th November - please participate via http://www.nerdquiz.de/

November quiz - hints #2

Everybody watch out, the quiz is almost over! Many people from many different places already joined (current newcomers are the communities from ResetEra, Retrogamer and the English Amiga Board)... while every game has been found out, we are still waiting for someone to score full points... a place in the top 10 can be had from 13 points onwards. :)

So far there are 40 participants in total, and three from here.


Here are the last hints - hope that helps!

1) In game nr.5 you control a squirrel in a platformer.
2) In the puzzle adventure on image nr.12 you control several goblin characters, all of which have different abilities.
3) Number 14 has you drive a tank, which you can also leave to walk around as a foot soldier.
4) The name of game 17 consists of three words, two of which start with an M. :)
5) Mea Culpa to image 18 - this japanese RPG confused me with its "right-to-left" direction: the displayed character is not the player, but just an enemy! This makes this game unnecessary hard to get right... by the way, there was recently a spin off to this series released on the Switch.


Good luck, and don't forget: the correct answer is the name of the game, not the character!

The deadline is Thursday, 30th November - please participate via http://www.nerdquiz.de/

Of the ones I didn't know, the ONLY one I should've known was Fire Emblem given that I've played the first 5 enough times! Glad I got a half decent score though!

December quiz

Dezember quiz - knights of RetroGamer

The theme of the month is "knights"... so put on your armor, draw your swords and let's do this. :)

Here is a general FAQ to this image quiz series:

- to participate you click on the link in this post, it leads to a google form. There you can give your best to figure out the names of the 25 games shown in the quiz image.
- if you want to change or update your entry, no problem. Just open the google form again, enter username+forum, and then leave everything blank except for your updates. Once the deadline has passed, all entries with the same user+forum combo will je joined.
- the winner is the user with the highest score. If there are several people who got all 25 games right, the winner is the one who sent in the earliest.
- If there is a draw with lower scores, I use "weighted" points. This means that a game that has rarely been found out is worth more than a simple title which almost everyone has gotten right.

Deadline is Sunday the 31st of December - please participate via http://www.nerdquiz.de/

Here is the quiz... have fun & happy holidays! :)

I only know 4 of these so I'm not going to bother with this one. I know where a couple more are from but I feel disingenuous looking them up

December quiz - clues #1

So, it's christmas soon... hope you're not too disappointed, but the only presents I am bringing today are some clues for the current "knights" quiz. :) Here we go!

1) the knights on the pictures 1, 19 and 25 are all called "Arthur".

2) title 9 doesn't show the original version of this rpg, but instead a graphics mod (my mistake)... the interface visible in the upper end is still the same though.

3) one franchise shows up twice in this quiz.

4) images #13 and #15 are not ingame scenes, but instead show the cover.

5) with glasses and hair loss... the sword fighter on picture 21 is my favorite :)
Image


In total we currently have 70 participants, none of which are from this community.

Deadline is Sunday the 31st of december - please participate via http://www.nerdquiz.de/

December Quiz - clues #2

Wow, look at all these people - with 90 participants (but no one from Retrogamer yet) this is already the biggest round of all time! :O

This is partly due to the "old maniac forum", where the mods are handing out amazon vouchers to the winners to give something back to the community (a server-financing promotion had gone much better than expected)... but of course the other communities were very active as well. :)


Watch out - the december quiz ends on new year (UK time), so sunday night!


Here are the very last clues... don't forget to participate or update your existing entries.

1) The number 2 is a well known action game from the first person perspective.

2) the knights in game 7 and 22 are both called "Lancelot"

3) The 25 is a graphic adventure from a time before "point & click" - here we are still using old fasioned text entry.

4) Those who name a Dreamcast game for number 6 will only get half the point.

5) The 18 is a strategy game from a german developer.

One last thing: Usually I give half points for vague or half-wrong names, but I got things mixed up for number 4 & 12 - those two will now get you full points even if you're only half right. ;) The same goes for game 17 - that's a really big series, you don't need to find out the exact installment.

Please participate via www.nerdquiz.de, deadline is Sunday December 31st.

February quiz - Wunschkonzert #2

hello everyone, wheeeee it continues: gaming quizzes for the year 2018! Ten times you'll get the chance to be NUMBER ONE among all these gaming nerds, and to score points for yourself and your forum. ;)

We start with a Wunschkonzert... wait whats a "Wunschkonzert"?! Well it was a popular concert show long ago, where they'd play what you asked for. Just like this quiz! Every title has been a wish from a user in the last Wunschkonzert.
So I filtered a bit, but otherwise had no hand in the games you have to find out this time. :)

All clear?

There is a wild mix of games going on... from the 1980s to all the way to 2016. More Windows PC games than usual - please use the form to enter games you like, so the next Wunschkonzert is more to your liking. :)

Deadline is Wednesday, February 28th - participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

here is the quiz... good luck & have fun! :)

February Quiz - clues #1

Everybody, it's not my fault - as I wrote in the initial post, other users picked the games this time, so please don't blame me that it's difficult. ;)
So far people achieve barely 10 points on average, so it's not an easy start into the new year.


To not have anyone despair any further (35 participants so far, no one from here), here are some clues:

1) Not all screenshots are gameplay. Nr.2 is a loading screen, 18 & 22 are intro- or cutscenes, and Nr.23 is a start screen.

2) In game number 9 you have to move balls around. The title first appeared on the TurboGrafx, and later as a download game on Wii and WiiU.

3) Title 20 is a Lucasfilm game from the 80s.

4) Game 19 is the toughest in the entire quiz (just 9% got it right so far). It plays in the D&D universe... and it doesn't start with a "B"! :O

5) The 21 is a fighting game for the Nintendo Game Boy.


Deadline is Wednesday the 28th of February. Please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

have fun! :)

February Quiz - Wunschkonzert #2 - answers & score

The first quiz of the year is done, and 67 people joined... three more than with the last Wunschkonzert, very nice! :D

Don't forget the special rule: all that correctly guess their own game, get a +1 bonus point if they stay below 20 points total. But whoever does NOT recognise his own game, gets a -1 penalty instead!

Each title has a spare line that explains which user had wished for that game.


Now we first have the names of the games as text, then as images, and the scoretable comes at the end of this post.
