QUIZ: “With This Easel” + BONUS. (ENDED!)

I’ve had a lot of fun remembering and guessing pics. Thank you for a great quiz that you put an enormous amount of work into, Chrissie!

I’m not going to participate in the Bonus Quiz. Sorry, I really hope you take no offense, but I don’t think I deserve to score points for posting or guessing slightly different pics of easels I’ve already identified in the main quiz. There are far too many of those. (My own K13 is guilty of that too, so I’m deleting it.) Plus “twin” bonus pics of the same easel, like D19, which is the same as my K4. So SweetDalilah and I could score points for both guessing and posting that easel. Easy points, not fair.

Just sent in my answers. Great fun! I will now watch out for easels every time I game.  Laughing

Hi Becky, thanks for taking part - there seems to be quite a few more easels than I remember or ever imagined!

Thank you Karlok for posting what you think - I really appreciate it! I never ever planned or wanted to submit a quiz using the bonus pics & it didn’t actually feel right to do so. There has been no response in 24 hours (obviously not a popular idea anyway!) so I feel quite relieved that I can now cancel it.

As for doubling up on screenshots, offering the option to post your own was an experiment & I was overwhelmed with the enthusiasm + the number of pics posted! In all fairness I really do need to look closely at some of them & deduct points I’ve given as I did state in the rules that there should not be exactly the same at a different angle (I have to make exceptions where it’s not obvious!)

I’m glad you’ve enjoyed taking part Karlok & thank you for the nice words!

I think the bonus quiz was just a bit unwieldy, Chrissie, especially since it would be difficult to score.  However, I’m enjoying finding unexpected easels and seeing what everyone else discovers.

I’m glad you said that Lady Kestrel - also it seemed like ‘over-kill’!

When collecting the screenshots (over months BTW) I too loved just finding unexpected easels! My biggest thrill was finding (by accident) no 3 which is yet un-guessed! - you will all kick yourselves! 

I’m also having a whale of a time enjoying all the screenshots I never found!

I’m sorry you feel that way about the bonus quiz Karlok, and that you won’t be participating. We could just not guess the screens that come from the same game we posted but oh well… Foot in mouth For all that it’s worth I didn’t even realise that D19 was similar to your K4 until I already posted it. I did however find another screenshot from another game you posted and realized it was similar and didn’t post it. (Zork Nemesis it was I believe)

I wasn’t going to compete in the bonus quiz anyway because I don’t have any more time and I also wanted to give a fair chance to everyone else to win the bonus quiz at least, but I wanted to keep posting pics though.
So you say there hasn’t been any response for the bonus quiz chrissie? Well that’s a shame really. I wanted to see our screens guessed by someone.  Mini Frown

Btw chrissie you can detuct one point from the D5 or D7. I shouldn’t have posted that second one anyway.

I have a few more great screens from games that haven’t been posted but what’s the point in posting them now if no one’s going to guess them?  Embarassed  Foot in mouth Mini Frown

I’m relieved you’re taking it so well, Chrissie. I was the one suggesting we should guess the bonus pics too, and then I back out! I hadn’t really thought it through.

Sweetdalilah, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to spoil anybody’s fun. But I did try to guess all the bonus screenshots, the only difference is that we’re not submitting our guesses to Chrissie.

I’m sorry you’re seeing it like that SweetDalilah as although there’s no option to submit guesses ‘publicly’ doesn’t mean to say that no-one’s trying to guess them!
Amongst the viewers of the thread I’m sure that there must be at least a few that haven’t actively participated but enjoy seeing the screenshots posted & guessing them for fun.

The whole point of including the Bonus was to give the opportunity to post screenshots I hadn’t found or chose not to include to add points to the main quiz score!

If I’d thought more about it sooner a Mini-quiz might have worked better if I’d been very selective & just included an equal number of the more unique pics from each of you, but it would’ve have meant that a lot of your lovely screenshots, SweetDalilah, wouldn’t have been included anyway.

BTW You can now keep posting screenshots up until the quiz dead-line!

It should be fair to give point to each bonus picture because they cannot guess their own pictures (but they should guess other pictures), which is exactly what you did, chrissie. It’s just that I wouldn’t call it mini-quiz, but I’d group all points (your quiz + bonus pictures) in one single list.
