The Rumpus Room / Re: World history quiz thread

Great news. I'm looking forward to it.

Is the betrayer evil?
Is the betrayer just misunderstood?
Is the betrayer summoned via some ritual?

I feel this is basically impossible though. Any answer could be fake so it's basically a guessing game.

Guess 2: Candyman

It grinds my gears when people pluralise 'LEGO' as 'LEGOs'. I realise that it's an acceptable form as enough people use it (although LEGO themselves don't like it) but I grew up with LEGO as an uncountable noun so the s sounds genuinely weird to me. If I want to count them I use 'pieces' or 'bricks'.

If we can google it then the winner is always going to be the first person who saw the question and could be bothered to google it. I think we should at least wait for a few genuine guesses, or until enough time has passed, before providing a googled answer. I prefer a trivia quiz over a googling contest.

Ahh that's better. Thanks Peder.

I think all the questions relating to it being a parasite are red herrings.

Does the betrayer live in the sewers?
Does the betrayer take the form of its victims' greatest fears?
Does it take the form of a clown for a large part of its existence?

I think you can guess where I'm heading.

Maybe there could be an option in the 'message icon' list for a little dollar sign cup.
Maybe something along these lines.

So it would look something like this:

(Someone with more skills than me might want to do a paintover. Some of the transparent pixels got butchered in the process.)

Yeah I vaguely remember hearing about this but I can't remember who it was.

@Dan That used to wind me up too. In general conversation I say "a gen" and anyone who says "a gain" really grinds my gears. But, as you correctly point out. If you're trying to rhyme with "rain" then only a moron would use "a gen"

@Blondbraid I agree with that whole heartedly. I once worked in the kitchen of s pub and chef would've personally offended if anyone asked for a well-done steak or even a medium-rare. He died about 5 years ago. I'm only now just thinking there might have been a connection.

Does the betrayer speak a human language?
Does the betrayer wear clothes?
Does the betrayer target children?

My first guess: Pinhead?

Well done Captain_D. It is indeed the Battle of Hastings.

I can't claim to be any kind of authority on world history, but here's a (easy) question:

The Bayeux Tapestry dipicts which famous historical battle?

I went to Prague in August and took a guided tour of the St. Vitis Cathedral and palace where the guy was proud to show us a window from which a number of people had been thrown.

Is the betrayer extra-terrestrial?
Is the betrayer some kind of ghost or spirit?
Does the betrayer target victims specifically?

Pssst, Kumpel (nudge nudge) we have to ask questions about the character/betrayer but some of yours are more about film tropes again.

Here are some Q.
Has the betrayer ever spent time in an insane asylum or other psychiatric facility?
Have they been permanently scarred in some way?
Do they have a preferred weapon?

Answer: An American Werewolf in London :-)

I almost thought it was wrong because I nearly missed your comments in the 'no' section. Teehee.

Is one of the characters told not to veer off the established path in some way (for example, to "Stay off the moors!")?
Does a portion of the movie take place in an underground railway system (e.g. The London Tube system)?
Does the killer frequently change form (i.e. from a human into a werewolf)?

I'm not convinced this is much of a problem. Only a fraction of games in the CGA board are commercial. I think currently there are only two paid games on the first page.

If you're scouring deeper than the first page then you're better off searching the database, where you can include or exclude commercial games.
