Riddle Me This! (Quiz)

Below you will find 25 riddles comprised of clues from adventure game screenshot fragments.  To answer a riddle simply submit the LETTER to the left of the riddle and your answer via PM (i.e. “R = Zork Nemesis”). Each riddle is worth a maximum 4 points for a possible total of 100 points in this section. Each incorrect guess will lower the subsequent amount of points you will receive for a correct answer on that specific riddle.

1st Guess: 4 points
2nd Guess: 3 points
3rd Guess: 2 points
4th Guess: 0 points

This means you can make up to 3 guesses PER riddle and still accrue points. There is no limit on the number of guesses, only on the ability to get points for them.

How the riddles work:

Each riddle is made up of 2 to 7 clues that in some manner identify an adventure game title, character or developer. The majority of individual clues can be guessed by simply asking oneself, “What is it?”.

If the topic were bands instead of adventures, here would be an example that is quite easy:

Answer: Maiden + Iron = Iron Maiden

Notice that you will need to be aware of the many synonyms for what you are looking at. Maiden may not have been your first guess for the picture of the woman. Use an online thesaurus if necessary. Also watch out for slang, homonyms and other types of wordplay. Be flexible about what you see. If you see a picture of a toad, don’t discount the fact that the answer might be frog or the fact that an inventory item that is technically a knife in the game is a sword in the quiz because they look similar.  Notice as well that the clues weren’t in order. You will usually have to rearrange them to get the answer.

A more difficult riddle may contain individual clues that are based on the object in question’s properties rather than the object itself. A picture of a glass of water might have the answer “full” or a glass by itself may be answered as “empty”.  Or the clue could imply action such as a picture of a shovel in dirt being “dig”, and so on.  You’ll need to do a little lateral thinking on these. Although, they are usually combined with easier clues, meaning you may be able to guess the riddle without even knowing what all the clues mean. In fact, sometimes a single clue is enough to guess the whole riddle.

Here is an example illustrating the above that is a movie and not an adventure:

Answer: Ghost(ing) + in the shell = Ghost in the Shell

Occasionally you will see riddles with parts in parentheses. This means that the clues within modify each other to create ONE clue. Combine or subtract as indicated.

Don’t fall under the assumption that the clues will completely spell out a title, etc. Articles (a, an, the) and prepositional phrases (to the, of the, in the, etc.) are usually excluded. Games that are part of a series may be missing the series title as well and only refer to the sub title.(i.e. Quest for Glory 4: Shadows of Darkness might be clued simply as “Ness + Shadow + Dark”)

In addition, there is a screenshot guessing component to this quiz. Beneath each clue is a number. Simply submit this number and the guess as to which adventure game it was taken from via PM. (i.e. “67 = The Island of Lost Hope”).  Be sure to specify the exact version of a game, especially when remakes or games that are part of a series are involved. These shots contain inventory items, interface elements, cut scene fragments and in-game screenshot fragments. Note that every screenshot is from a different game.

Each screenshot is worth 1 point maximum for a total of 100 points in this section. Each incorrect guess will lower the subsequent amount of points you will receive for a correct answer on that specific screenshot.

1st Guess: 1 point
2nd Guess: 0.75 points
3rd Guess: 0.50 points
4th Guess: 0.25 points
5th Guess: 0 points

This means you can make up to 4 guesses PER screenshot and still accrue points. There is no limit on the number of guesses, only on the ability to get points for them.

The quiz will end on June 4th, 12am GMT and I will submit updates in scoring daily or as often as I am able. The maximum possible total score is 200 points comprised of 100 points from each section, and I will keep track of scores in each section separately as well as an overall total.

Here it is:

Quiz

Good Luck!

Looks like fun Bastich but I can’t see a way to scroll to the right to view it all. Am I missing something?

Thanks Bastich, that works great.

Will be a problem at AG in the future if they can’t work this out with the new Forum. Also I hope they fix the links to open in a new window instead of redirecting the member away from the Forum.

The weird part was that it worked in preview and broke upon posting. Anyway, given the size of the picture it is probably better to have a link than have it load every time someone reads the page.

what is really nice about this Quiz that it does not depend on recollecting or remembering a screenshot of an Adventure (as the usual), but oblige you to squeeze you mind with every possibility!

This looks amazing, Bastich, but oh my aching scalp!  Wink

By the way, you left out the letter Z and the + or - signs for the last one.

     

Sorry, Santa!  I meant to behave, but there were too many options.

Well, there ARE 100 screenshots to guess if you want to…

There is no Z. The last 6 screenshots are just padding to make the screenshot guessing game equal 100.

There are 25 riddles at up to 4 points a piece and 100 screenshots at up to 1 point each.

You can play either game or both. It’s up to you.

FYI, I put the scoring in the third post. The character limit won’t allow it in the first.

No, but the amount of points you get after each incorrect guess goes down as I list in the first post.

Also, the riddles aren’t all game titles. As I said in the first post, they can be game characters or game developers as well.

Oops!  I missed that about the 25 even though I read the rules a couple of times.

Advie,
You get 4 guesses and the points decrease each time.

Developer? can it be a name of a person(A Developer) as well? , or only Company/Studio (Developer) !
