Even Split Game

Created by Stewart
In this game, your goal is to evenly split items into two given categories as fast as you can:
  • You must divide the given items equally between the two presented categories by dragging and dropping into the correct category.
  • Some items may fit in both categories, but the items must be evenly split correctly to win the round.
  • There are 3 difficulty levels: Easy, Medium or Hard. Each shows a different number of items.
In just 2 minutes, how many rounds can you evenly split?

Im playing on tablet and it worked fine. :)

Stressfull a timer with unlimited questions haha. Was good fun :) (the easy was quite doable, toughest one I got was double flag colours, blue and white..)

Only point of critique: I continuously keep misclicking (tapping), because as soon as you click an answer, the others huddle to the middle, and Im clicking where the word was a microsecond before. So the faster I want to go, the slower I am, cant click two fast after eachother (cause you are clicking in air or you have caught an answer you didnt want).

Still fun though, and if it cant get altered, I'll just have to retrain my brain ;) and wait for the words to have "reshuffled".

Plus, I keep wanting to drag and drop, but that is my own issue haha. Aswell as selecting two, putting them in the right spot, and waiting for the next question, because I think the others by default belong to the other group (hope this makes sense in english).

I think I need to do this quiz a few more times to get my habits out ;) (did it 3 times and every time the same things happen haha, dragging, misclicking, waiting)

Thanks for the comments! I'll take a look into seeing if I can prevent the reshuffling each time (this is done with CSS, so might be tricky to implement). The drag-drop only works on Desktop due to the funky way JavaScript wants to do drag-and-drop on mobile. Due to this mobile/tablet only work via tapping-to-select.

Yea I suspected it would be difficult to not have the words "recentering". And ow do you cán drag and drop on computer?? I wanted to try this on comp before, but now even more haha, that would make an even huger difference.

(Jetpunk should have two scoring systems, one for pc/laptop users and one for phone/tablet users ;) just kidding it is all about the fun, eventhough there is a massive difference (I noticed when I see old comments of myself saying there is plenty of time, and when redoing them on tablet cant get halfway through :) I think for 2 mins on pc I take 3 mins on tablet (this one is extremely sensitive to typos )

This is a really great game. I so appreciate that JetPunk is finding new styles of games while retaining its clean and accessible interface. It's one of the reasons I love this site and continue to white-list it.

Woohoo I got 11 on hard, on tablet :D never expected to make the leaderboard (especially with me playing clumsily, and know nothing about elevation and only about 8 flags.. Luckily I do know a bit about size and location :) ).

I better enjoy it while it lasts haha (wish I had a functioning computer though.. now I wanna improve, I have never cared about time other quizzes, but here it matters.)

Actually I kinda forgot at the moment I'm Wrinting this comment ;D But I think that there's some countries that could fit in both categories. An example could be Comoros, I put it in countries with less than 5 million people, (With two others who also had less) but it didn't accept that. So I put it in the other, first then it got accepted. It was on easy btw

Yes some items fit in both categories, as mentioned in the description. These are accepted for both, but you have to have an even split! So if you have an even split and it doesn't work, then you might have to move one of the items that fit both as you'll have another which is wrong.

It can be a little complicated at first, but it adds a little more challenge!

I think that only the user’s best score should be on the leaderboard, because right now on Countries Easy, 4 out of the top 5 rankings on the leaderboard today are from the same person...

I think this discourages replays, but I'll think about it. After all, the scoreboard resets daily anyway. Also we're in very early days, so it's possible these scores can be beaten in the future.

How would it discourage replays?? The opposite makes more sense imo.

+1. Honestly, I tried lots of attempts because I was so close to beating the 1st place on the leaderboard so it ends up spamming the daily leaderboard. And I think more player will do the very same in the future, so I think the feature is good for the leaderboard itself.

Nice addition. One of the few things I like about Sporcle that JetPunk doesn't have is their "minefield" quizzes. Basically if you guess a wrong answer, the quiz ends. An example of one such quiz is here. It would be really cool to have that feature as an option

I've mentioned this before and the instructions change accordingly, on mobile dragging doesn't work so you need to tap on an answer to select, then tap where you want it to go.

35 really? that is a bit more than 3 seconds per answer, so less than a second per drag. Ok I wanted to say that seems impossible, but I guess with a mouse perhaps, with touchpad, it doesnt seem very feasible. (or maybe it is jsut this one, it is tiny and wait for it... round... so constantly have to readjust, because I cant go up anymore. And the buttons you need to press as hard as an old typewriter haha. Emergency laptop from 2007/2008). I find anything above 20 rather impressive :)

They're made in the code directly. I only got the chance after working for JetPunk last summer. Unfortunately this is not available for users in general. If you have ideas though, feel free to post them here! Maybe it'll become reality if we like it.

I think you should have a board game. You will have to answer a geography question and roll the dice. If you get the answer right, you go forward however many spaces. Though if you get one wrong, you go back however many spaces.
