Yeah, I know! Shame on me! Pan
I’m not a huge Sierra fan you know. I did play two Larry games, two from the King’s Quest series, I’ve tried one of the Police Quest games, but didn’t like it too much! I’ve never even try to play any Space Quest games.(I don’t like to play space themed games)

Congrats everyone for taking the time to enjoy this Sierra (on the run) Quiz.

Subjects num#1 and num#10 were meant to be tricky (indeed), and i had some number of debates about num#1 through some of you guys PMs, IT was only answered correctly by Timovieman, while num#10 was only answered by DarkEye and Becky through the last hour of the Quiz life-time,

I wasn’t really prepared to explain them (yea num#10 aswel), so let me get to this tomorrow early with full details about why they were like this (see OP) and not like that! Grin.

Good night everybody, and thanks to you, this quiz was fun while it lasted.

Odd, I thought it was well-known that Larry was a software salesman. Why is there debate about this? Did they retcon it in Reloaded?

I’m still puzzled about #10, but I may have just misinterpreted the entire thing. I’ll read the explanation tomorrow… Tongue


Thanks for the fun quiz, Advie! Thumbs Up

And congrats to DarkEye for winning this one as well. You’re raising the expectations for the Autumn AG Challenge. Wink

Maybe, if this tournament would be just about screenshot guessing…. Meh

Nah!  What fun would that be?  Wink

I’m sorry I didn’t get to respond, Advie.  My Houdini dogs escaped again, and I had to chase them around the neighborhood last night.  I looked at all of them and would have gotten 3 right without guessing.

     

Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

Out of curiosity: I don’t get question 7. Rosella appears in King’s Quest III, IV, V, VI and VII. So shouldn’t that be 5 times?

I haven’t played any of the games mentioned in the quiz so had to rely on doing a little research rather than blindly guessing! I came across 2 fictional biographies for Larry which both stated that Larry was a programmer (before the 1st Larry game) + there’s some info in Wikipedia where Larry is also listed as a fictional programmer.
Not having played the games myself I already said to Advie that I wasn’t going to argue about it!
Actually I’m quite pleased with my score considering I haven’t played the games but I didn’t quite get my head around no 10!  Smile

Wikipedia steered me wrong there too, Chrissie! But I also haven’t played the Larry games - maybe that’s the job the Wikipedia article mentions him getting fired from and now he’s a salesman.

Thanks for the quiz, Advie!

Num#10 :

The locations visited within the tetralogy (Quest for Glory) were to correspond with various other symbolic cycles of four, such as the 4 classical elements, the 4 seasons, and the 4 cardinal directions:-

Somewhere between finishing Trial by Fire and cranking up the design process for Shadows of Darkness, Lori and Corey realized a fifth chapter would have to be added to bridge the games. That chapter became Wages of War….

“Wages of War (Tarna/QFG3) is the bridge and broke the rules. It was in Fricana, which is Africa. We added Wages of War to the series because the game called for it.
So we broke our own metaphor” - Lori & Corey Cole.

Num#1 :
Its a tricky question, but if anyone would want to debate and take Wiki as ‘the’ reference, must understand that Wiki is inaccurate (of this point) to be precise, they made an assumption of Larry occupation, on what Al said of the-never-released-Larry 4, where ‘hypothetically’ Larry works for Ken Williams, to makes Larry 4 instead of Al, but then he loses the flobbies.
but Larry originally was (before even traveling to lost wages at LSL1) a Traveller Software Salesman, and since this all about LSL4 is an illusion, and we can’t be sure since we never seen it Grin, Larry main/original job remains.

If you still need more prove, watch this Video

P.S: About Kuru’s Point up there considering Num#7 and Rosella, he is right, and i glad that didn’t make any troubles through this quiz, as i already meant, Rosella appears (in-game) at the king Quest Series..
