That's a bit complicated. Should be made simpler if you want to get people to go along with this. You should start off by asking one trivial question and whoever gets that right will ask the next question.

This could potentially be a good thread. Nice idea

Awesome idea.

Got the movie list pegged, that was easy... But that music list? O.o ...gunna have to step out on that one, whoa.

Seriously cool idea though!

Edit to add: Something tells me the real winner of this game is going to be Google.

LOL its not meant to be easy

A big difference on the night is that your in a team of upto 6 people so what someone doesnt know someone else might.

With these particular questions the lowest scoring team got 27 (only 2 of them) and the highest was 37.5 (4 on the team)

Later Ill post some one of my earlier quizs that are a bit easier

Yeah the music round stumps most people, you get half a point for the song title and half for the artist, the highest scoring team in that round only got 5

LOL your as bad as some of the people who do the quiz
