As long as you use spoiler tags, guess as much as you want.

Your answer is incorrect BTW.

6 is:
Spoiler:
Death Ga...no wait, Callahan's Crosstime Saloon!

Right?

I really like the theme of this quiz! A scene from Curse of Monkey Island seems to be missing, though...

Must indeed be something devious with this quiz. Being a screenshot n00b that I am I don't get it.
Anyone who feels like explaining the twist (specially what was wrong with my guess for pic number 4), feel free to PM me.

Apparently I was right! Never played Callahan's Crosstime Saloon actually, but I remember the same twist in a post in the "Adventure Game Scene...uh, Game" thread. I guess it pays out to be a longstanding forum member here sometimes.

@Jelena: I think everything will be explained when all the answers are revealed...
...just teasing!

Thanks Advie!
That's clever, wasn't all that wrong then.
I've played both games. Don't remember that scene though.
