March's round will be all geography again, albeit with slightly more specific caption names (eg, the first caption is "Name that world capital").

My goal is to have everything ready and post the first question on Saturday. With the new system, this would put the last question on Friday, March 28th.

I may reduce the number of questions to 21, but I kind of prefer the three categories of eight questions setup.

I'm in high school...Unless you mean college I understand (hear it's tough...?) but otherwise I'm mostly in for a lot of the questions, I just don't get/know the hint or picture that's presented haha. Otherwise if you manage your time wisely, you should be able to play unless you're taking all these AP classes and have no internet time then that's another thing haha.

Which is technically me. Only 2 projects and 2 essays due Monday.
It's possible, really.

I try to post most questions between 4-5pm on weekdays. You aren't done with school by then?

You could try playing just for fun. Ultimately, that's what it should be any way. If you miss a question, just don't scroll down so far to see the answer posted.

Hahhaha I wish....
Track practice till 500....but no the real problem is that some days I just cant research possible answers, I have to much hw. Yeah Im in AP everything....cept band, that kinda drops my gpa 8-)

If the questions were hard enough that people were likely to miss quite a few it would easier to for busy people to compete, they would just have to get a percent right.

But honestly thats life. You only have so much time in a day and where you rank trivia in it all is up to you.

:?

The questions were so hard I had to start giving hints. Even still, two or three people every question had the wrong answers.

Well, you're welcome to play "whenever," if you have the time and inclination.
