TD 206 - Leftovers (cheating account free)

TD 206 - Leftovers


Hi everyone, welcome to TD 206 – Leftovers. I had a ton of fun doing the last TD on Seinfeld and set out to make another TD game shortly after. Problem is, I couldn’t finish one with a single theme. Each time I tried to start a new quiz, I couldn’t come up with more than 3 or four questions on one theme. Luckily, I had enough questions for a TD quiz after about 3 attempts. Here they are, the leftovers. The best questions from my quiz attempts that cover a range of fun subjects. As always, here are the rules adapted from many TDs before this one:

The Rules

1. Please send me your answers by private message (PM), but NOT ANYWHERE IN THE THREAD!

2. Please use the PM function for any questions and clarifications and I will post changes in the main thread if required. We don’t want to tip anyone about the answers do we?

3. The deadline for submission is 5:00 PM EST Monday, September 1, 2014

4. The object, as always, is to provide the least popular correct answer for each of the questions. If your answer is correct, your score on a question equals the number of people (including you) who gave your answer. The player with the least cumulative score wins.

5. If your answer is incorrect, your score will be the sheep score plus five. So guess away as wrong answers may not wreck you too badly.

6. You may drop one question by invoking the magical chant of “I’m full” Your score for that question will be zero.

7. If a question seems like sheepbait, you can just say, "I want it all" and take the sheep score. You may use this option only once.

8. This goes without saying, but answers must be provided out of the wealth of information that exists in your brain - no research! No cheating. However, if you are lucky enough to stumble onto an answer between when you read the question and when you submit your answers, it is fully acceptable to use that.

9. The first tiebreaker will be the score before the bonus questions, then the number of singletons, then doubletons, then submission order.

10. Entries sent in are considered final. Go over your submission before hitting send. Since im easily flustered with numbers, I won't be able to change answers once an entry is submitted.

Here we go. Please peruse the questions and have fun.

Leftovers TD - The best of the rest of the quizzes

From a quiz about the 3 Cs: cartoons, candy and comics….

1. Lets start off with a softball. Name a Hanna Barbera cartoon series where an anthropomorphic animal is the main character. (Clarification: The Flintstones would not count as Dino is not anthropomorphic and is not the main character. Keep that in mind when choosing an answer)

2. Name one of the top 10 most popular types of chocolate based candy given out at Halloween in the US. (Stats compiled in 2013)

3. Given the description, name me one of the comic strips being described (some opinions are purely my own). Give me the description of the strip or the number with your answer:

(Clarification: There are a couple of items on this list that I would not consider traditional board games, but they are acceptable answers)

Up to eight points at stake. No negative points for guessing, so guess away.

1. This is from a question I wasn’t able to incorporate. Excluding religious works and nonfiction, name me up to three of the 12 the most translated works of fiction. Ranking is based on the number of languages a work has been translated into according to wikipedia. (Some are collections, so collective names will be accepted)

2. Having binged on the Simpsons marathon this weekend, answer this trivia question for two points off your score.
What is the significance of Roger Meyers in the Simpsons universe?

3. For one point off each, name 3 of the top ten selling PC games of all time

Have fun guessing. Looking forward to your answers

I have no idea on most stuff related to TV, movies, or literature, but I submitted anyway. I will probably come in last.

Done. Jekyll & Hyde with many options on some and a struggle to get even one on others. Did I go for things I have mentioned numerous times on the board or let them go? Bwah ha ha!

For the superheroes, if they used several names, does each count separately?

For the purposes of this quiz, each option only pertains to one superhero.

Its still pretty early to jump to any conclusions.

I tried to go for a mix of questions, lets see how your strategy pays off.

Ok, so ... if George Washington went by The Prez, General George, and The Virginian, then any of those three answers would count as one?

I have the most popular version of each option in mind. If you want to go with another identity, ill consider it, but it would still correspond to the same person. It would make more sense to keep it simple.

Is this specific to US or some other region? Candy can vary pretty wildly from one country to another.

I cant think of many other places that have a halloween-candy connection, but I am referring to the US. I'll make that clear in the question.
