Bored? Nothing to do? Take this board game trivia quiz at: http://www.funtrivia.com/playquiz.cfm?qid=136924&origin=http

I posted this a few weeks ago, but since it was in a football post you probably missed it.
The average score is 7 out of 15 questions correct. Here are the BGG scores so far...

Fawkes 15/15
Xlyce 14/15
pete_darby 13/15
gamesgrandpa 11/15
Gialmere 11/15

I got 13/15. Which is pretty good, considering that I've never even played most of the games mentioned in the quiz. I'm just a sucker for silly trivia

15/15 but declined to register, so you will just have to take my word for it.

Been plyin Wargame since the '60s. Only the A&A vs. Castle Risk gave me any pause.

Score
12/15, I've played A&A twice many years ago, Battle Cry 2 or 3 times recently, and Risk about half a dozen times (which is about 6 too many...2210 is better).

I got 13/15.

Didn't know the name of the HG Wells game and guessed wrong on what company that published Panzer Grenadier.

Still a nice quiz. meeple

14/15. I missed the "Creature that ate Sheboygen" question. Toss up between TSR and SPI... guessed wrong.

10/15. Considering I was wildly guessing the whole time, not too bad.

my score
I got 13/15. I guessed wrong on 5 and got suckered into saying SPI on 6. I knew about Jane's, but I thought all those pages of S&T would outweight it.

I'm too old...
12/15 missing East Front, Wilderness War and one other that I've forgotten between quiz taking and posting (see subject line). This quiz has been up for a while, since Curt Schilling is now a starting pitcher for THE WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS BOSTON RED SOX (shameless regional boosterism inserted

Close...
14/15 ... being old does have it's advantages. Got tripped up on the age of Axis & Allies vs. Castle Risk.

11/15 with a good fraction being guesses (although on the questions I was guessing I thing I out did chance).

Someone with a user id should report the typo:

"Terrible Swift Swort (sic)"

13/15 That Jane's question threw me off. They don't make games!

12/15, not bad for not being a wargamer... As for Jane's, there are quite a few military PC games with the label Jane's in front. i.e. Attack Squadron, F/A-18, USAF, Fleet Command. Mostly combat sims.

Anything less...
... than 100% on this quiz would have embarrassed me. How can I know all this useless stuff yet continuously forget things like my GF's middle name, paying my electricity bill and my mother's birthday?

Chuckles beat me
Much like him, I was wildly guessing as if writing a multiple-choice university physics midterm! laugh

I needed 4 out of 5 to finish with an impressive 7 of 15! (better than the 25% I should have scored!)

I know nothing of any of this stuff, but have read a bit on BGG about Panzerxxxx, Battle Cry, etc. in passing.

I'm pretty pleased with that, especially as I don't consider myself a wargamer.

I got 10/15 which I'm satisfied with since I don't think there's more than one game (Diplomacy) in the entire quiz that I have actually played.
