This page shows the stats of each game and high scores. When the same nickname plays multiple sessions, their scores combine to form the overall high scores.

The statistics reset in 2020, because the point values went up for puzzles and questions. The previous statistics moved to the bottom of this page for preservation.

Statistics File Explanation

Each game has its own stats stored in an INI file. The file is divided into sections, written in order of occurrence in the game but shown here alphabetically:

Game Statistics and Adjustments

Each game session's INI file appear below: Because these are considered internal links, these files will not open in a new window. Please use the browser's back button to go back to this page.

Individual Game High Scores

The high scores for one game appear below:

  1. (No games yet.)

If a player shows up late or is a non-member, it appears after their score.

Overall High Scores

This high score list is for players that played more than once. Multiple full sessions' scores go here.

Database Stats

Question Counts

The following are the number of questions in the database, which is updated periodically.

Levels

  1. 960
  2. 1,876
  3. 374
  4. 1,877
  5. 312
  6. 336
  7. 272
  8. 276

As shown above, the number of questions for level three and levels five to eight are low. These are the questions that are hardest to write. When writing questions, there's no plan to write a certain number for each level. The objective is to go through material and write questions while studying.

Bear in mind that these numbers include duplicate questions in different formats. For example, one question can appear three times: one with two choices, another one with three or more choices, and one with no choices. There can also be questions with multiple answers and then the same question requiring only one. There's no tracking the number of duplicates. It would take too long.

There may be multiple choice questions waiting for randomization and not included in the above numbers.

Miscellaneous

Puzzles: 735
Word Scrambles: 1,320

Puzzles have a minimum of four words, and word scrambles have a maximum of three words, ignoring articles and some prepositions.

Database stats as of 2 May 2021.

Archived Statistics as of End of 2019

This section preserves the statistics before changing the scoring in the game. The objective is to give emphasis before the changes, because it was harder to earn points.

Late shows are brought up, because it can effect the number of questions correct and percentage. If a player leaves early, only the percentage correct appears. Non-members, if known, are mentioned for each session.

Overall High Scores

Game format and questions written by me are copyright 2017-2021 by Jeremy Adderley. Feel free to use the game's format and questions as long as no money exchanges hands and giving credit. Questions written by others are properly credited in the answers. Please send an e-mail to request permission and/or make payment(s) for their use when it involves money.

So far, I wrote most of the questions, so I'm adding a disclaimer that I do not talk about the questions with anyone that I feel may end up playing the game, especially my wife. This is so they can play, and other players don't feel those people have an edge over them.

Mailing Lists

There are two mailing lists: newsletter and notify. They're considered separate just in case a person only wants one. The newsletter contains a summary of the game, including scores of everyone who played, corrections to scores, updates to the game, and even high score lists. The notify list announces the time for the next game; however, the most important aspect is asking three random questions the day before the game session. Answering these three questions before the game officially starts will earn points. The three random questions will only appear in the notify list.

There is a page on Facebook about the game, and I post when the next game will be and updates to the site/game.

Privacy Policy

E-mail addresses collected are only used to send the newsletter and inform when the next game occurs. They are not sold in any form. Any real names collected will not appear on this site, unless they contributed something that deserves credit. The idea is to use nicknames for purposes of high scores and other information shown on the stats page.
