george: the reason that the scores get higher is usually because when a quiz gets featured on the front page, it gets taken by everyone who visits the site regularly including many casual quiz takers and people not familiar with the subject of the quiz. This lowers the average. After it rotates off the front page, the quiz is only taken by hardcore quiz junkies who go searching for it. Yes, I'm sure it only factors in your first attempt.

I don't know about tacos but dollars come from tollars which we used here in Bohemia about 400 years ago. 1 tollar was 2 "zlatý" (golden), but nowadays 4 (Polish) zlotys equal one dollar

I've been to Kosovo a couple times lately. Not the most out of the way place I've been. It was actually nicer than I was expecting. I just wish I had gone via Albania instead of Serbia. Would have been great if I'd never gone to Serbia at all, for that matter.

As an Arabic speaker, I can tell you for sure that there's certainly no difference between Riyal and Rial. The english translation is misleading; they're written and pronounced the same way in Arabic and Farsi and we usually distinguish by saying Saudi Riyal or Omani Riyal, etc. I think they should be accepted as the same currency. I was surprised to see Oman and other countries missing in the states, because I didn't imagine that there were spellings other than Riyal.

I can see YUAN/WON/YEN being different since they're pronounced quite differently, though I can also see the case for making them give each other. I can also see Brazilian REAL and RIAL being distinct. But there's really no damn reason for RIYAL and RIAL not to give each other. Same word, same language, just different transliteration. Kronor and Kroner seem to be identically pronounced as well.

This might be the Quizmaster quiz with the least forgiving spelling. I at first thought that currencies that were clearly identical in all but spelling to count for each other. For example, I don't expect RIAL to give me Brazil's REAL, but I was very frustrated that I did not get RIYAL, especially since I got stuck on what currency the Saudi's used (since I was sure it was a rial--as it is). Oman and Saudi both use Arabic, both use an identical Arabic word, and each could plausibly be transliterated with the other's form. But this quiz doesn't grant it. I felt similarly about Kroner/Kronor. The quiz is about whether you know currencies, not whether you know transliterations.
