{Results!}Puzzle Pirates Quiz I -- Win a Sloop!-- {Deadline April 20, 2012} Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Do you think you know everything there is to know about Puzzle Pirates?
...
You don't? Oh >.>

Well, do you think you have the skills to find the answers to any questions you may not know off the top of your head?
You do? Awesome!

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to answer a brief 15 question quiz. Do well and receive prizes!

What are the prizes you might ask? Well you'd be wise to wait and see what the prizes are before committing to such a time-consuming event (just kidding, it's really quick).
Get all the questions right: Be entered into a random draw to win one of 6 sloops.
These sloops will be available for delivery to the winners on their choice of Cerulean, Meridian or Emerald Oceans so all are welcome to give it a shot!

There will be no partial credit for partial answers.

Deadline to complete is April 20, 2012.

Now, the crucial final detail, the link to the survey:
http://kwiksurveys.com?s=LMKMFJ_6d4676ee



I'd like to ask that you don't discuss the questions in the quiz so everyone is on a level playing field when taking the quiz! Thanks and good luck!

Of all the questions, numbers 3 and 13 took me the longest time to answer. Fortunately, my Google-Fu was up to the challenge... ;-)

For the convenience of my competitors, I recommend that you copy (write down) the questions, research and record your answers, and _then_ post your answers onto the survey.

Thank you for an entertaining contest! :-)

After looking over the answers thusfar, perhaps I should be a bit clearer:
  • For this event you can take your time and look up answers.
  • It's better to give an educated (or researched guess) than leaving a question blank.

    Any perfect scores so far? And, let's say that there are exactly 6 perfect scores at the end, do they all win a Sloop? What if there is less than 6 perfect scores? Thanks! :)

    There is at least one perfect score so far. If there are less than 6 perfect scores at the deadline, each of the perfect scores will win a sloop and the leftovers will be used for another quiz or two :P

    I don't think that a greeter has to be able to answer all this questions ;) Especially historical questions aren't needed knowledge to be a greeter. Though it could teach them to use Yppedia.

    Will you post the solutions of the quiz when it has ended?

    Uh... I may have forgotten to put in my Ocean when submitting it. If I am one of the winners, send it over to Emerald. ;)

    Most likely I got the first question wrong though... Did some extensive googling and looking at dates.

    EDIT - Pirate name Blimpmeister.

    Beyond using the YPPedia, it also teaches how to find answers to questions that the YPPedia may not have an answer. What if you want to have a dispute with someone about some design/development issue with someone? Do you just make wild claims, or do you search for comments that Cleaver and the developer team have made in the past? Hopefully pirates taking this test (and the future ones) can become so good at finding answers that I couldn't publish a test that was unbeatable.

    Edit: Speaking of publishing a "test that was unbeatable", well... I'm working on Puzzle Pirates Quiz III now and so far I think it's the hardest yet. Prepare yourselves!

    Some of the Qs were very tricky, but for the most part I knew the answers without having to search for them.

    Guess having been around for WAY too long helped.

    Yes, Question 1 is a trick question. You have to enter Locu, Cerulean or you have a mistake and are not eligible for the prizes any more :P

    just kidding. ;) Do you refer to quiz 1 or future quizzes?

    actually... im not sure if the final question was a "trick question" or if the status has changed since u made the quiz... as there are TWO "active"(last login TODAY) on Emerald.... that are in that specific 'era' as noted by ypp....i noted that in my answer along with both names

    ((sorry if that was not clear.. i was trying to make my point without giving away the question....))

    also... upon clicking to finish.. i was redirected to the kwiksurvey main page to login... rather than a "thank you... your survey has been submitted" type of response....

    is there a way to verify that my answers were submitted and received??? (only 2 days til close.. a speedy reply would be appreciated.. in case i need to resubmit)

    Same, and same again for Quiz II. I think we're fine, but yeah, maybe Steven should confirm the entries.
