QUIZ—Seeing Red [ENDED]

It’s that time of year – with Christmas displays revealing colors of red and green. Glance at the images below and try to remain calm as you see red (literally everywhere) and attempt to name the games.

Seeing Red Rules

1. Send me three guesses within each 24-hour period. PM only. Day 1 begins now. Day 2 begins at about 4:00 PM forum time tomorrow. On Day 2 you can send 3 more guesses, on Day 3 send me 3 more guesses, etc.

2. The correct titles of games with the letter “R” on their images are worth 10 points. Images with the letter “D” are worth 8 points. Images with no letters are worth 5 points.

3. At the end of each day (about 4:00 PM forum time) I will post the games that have been guessed correctly. Since correct guesses will be revealed at the end of each day, I will not be responding to your PMs.

4. The Seeing Red Quiz will end at about 4:00 PM forum time on Thursday, December 17th or when all the games are guessed correctly (whichever comes first).

5. So-called Clues that might help with some of the guessing:

R 3
U 2
B 1
Y 4

Extremely obscure clue applying in some sense to the above: action applies to things, not people.

Less obscure clue: “The” counts as a “T.”

Good luck everyone!

Nice quiz, Becky! If I understand correctly, you’re using very similar method as Gabe did with trees? Will all the players receive the same points for correct answers or the rule of the fastest is in again?

Yes, it’s similar to Gabe’s method.

But everyone gets the same points for the same image answered correctly within the 24-hour period. There’s no advantage to answering quickly. But for your answers to count for that day, you must PM me with your guesses before the 4:00 PM forum ending deadline for that particular day. Once I’ve posted the answers, the next day begins.

Does this make sense? Or am I explaining it poorly.

The way to achieve a high score is to be sure to send 3 guesses every day of the quiz and to have the correct answer for mostly images with “R” and “D” on them.

Focus on the R’s now. Focus on the remaining R’s tomorrow, then the D’s, then the rest. Easy. Cool

And by ‘easy’, I mean the rules, not the actual quiz. Innocent

Well, I recognise a lot of screenshots in this lovely quiz without an R or D attached but I guess that’s not going to be good enough!!! Laughing

Hi Becky I am still not clear on the rules of the quiz(sorry Frown). So are we to send you 3 guesses for 3 different images, or the same image that we guessed wrong?

Edit: What I’m trying to say is, if I recognize let’s say 6 images today, I can only PM you with 3 of them?

Yes, you can only send 3 guesses per day of different images, even if you recognize more than that. Then, after I post the Day 1 results around 4:00 PM forum time tomorrow, you can then send me three different guesses for Day 2 (assuming that they haven’t been guessed already by somebody else and posted with the results already).

If you realize, after the results are posted for Day 1, that you guessed wrong and the image hasn’t been guessed correctly already, you can try again with a different guess for that image on Day 2. But still, the total of guesses for each day can only be 3.

Does this make sense?

Totally makes sense, thanks for explaining Smile

Day 1 of the quiz has officially ended. I’ve posted the results from Day 1 immediately below the quiz images. Have a look.  Cool

Day 2 now begins—please PM me with 3 guesses anytime between now and 4:00 PM forum time on Monday, December 14th.

Note: I’m trying to be perfectly accurate, but if I make a mistake in recording your guesses, let me know.

Day 2 of the quiz has officially ended. I’ve posted the results from Days 1 and 2 immediately below the quiz images. Have a look.  Nerd

Day 3 now begins—please PM me with 3 guesses anytime between now and 4:00 PM forum time on Tuesday, December 15th.

Note: I find it remarkable how quickly some of these difficult images have been identified.
