Today they've got a very easy (for our types) Settlers of Catan quiz. If this is your first time on the site, be prepared to waste several hours.

I think you need to fall prey to my last geekmail I sent you and finally get around to responding, even if it is another rejection.

12/16, I was trying to call a couple things something they referred to differently.

It's been years since I played SOC and I still got 13/16. I knew the other cards by what they did, but couldn't remember the official names.

This quiz site is blocked by our filter at work, so I can't do it here. However, the only way that I can remember to come back to this thread so that I can do the quizzes at home is to post.

So, therefore, this post is completely pointless, and is essentially my own bookmark for later reference.

Carry on.

Dammit, the site doesn't work at all on my browser (firefox 1.0). I type in the box, but no pressing of "enter" will get it to take the answers.

Yes, because letting users type text in a box needs very advanced, complicated javascript.

(And yes, I know that FF1.0 is a five years old, but at work we don't upgrade software on system that work just fine. And come on, 5 years isn't *that* old.)

There is no need to press enter. If you put the correct word in it is immediately accepted. If the entry isn't correct you need to delete it and try a new one.

Oops! It does work. I just was using the wrong terms for my answers. blush (Apparently "Biggest Army" isn't the card, it is "largest army".)

Well, I got them all with 1:33 to spare. Took me about a minute to remember the monopoly card!

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I got 86 out of 195 nations in the world. Apparently, Ireland is a country! When did that happen?

And I had that word in a bunch of my guesses. So maybe 24/40?

I am now up to 150 out of 195 nations. I've got most of Africa. I'm working on my -stans now.

EDIT: I am up to 167 of 195 Countries. Nearly double my first go.
