A couple of suggestions- accept "Motor Racing" and "Formula 1" for "checkered flag", accept "ten pin bowling" for "spare", accept "snooker" and "billiards" for "cueball". Good quiz.

I tried swimming, too, but because a water sport was the only thing I could think of where something like that would be used. Didn't even think about water polo.

Quidditch is a made up sport in a movie. Stupid. Sorry I'm older then 20 and have never seen those movies.

level 67
Jul 21, 2015
I'm sure I'm older than you & I've read all the books that the movies were based on. The college where I work has a quidditch team as well. It's not stupid; it's just something you didn't know.

I'm a grandmother and I've read all the books and seen all the movies even though the books are written for children. Lots of good morals there to impart to the younger generation, and really fun reading. I mean, who wouldn't like flying motorcycles, the school bully being temporarily turned into a ferret, a whomping willow tree which smacks anyone who comes near it, and all culminating in the good guys defeating the evil guys at their version of Armageddon? Quidditch may not have been real in its origins, but it has definitely become a real Muggle sport.

Really, most people that have seen the movies/books are over 20. It first book was in '97 (omg) so that is already 22 (whaat??) years ago. so it was around before people that are 20 now were even born.. So your comment makes absolutely no sense.

Besides the fact that I think the demographics of people that have seen it, (I mean the age they were when they saw, not the age they are now) are at least as much above 20 as below. (now if your argument was, im not 10 yet, or I am over 75 or something, ok, those ages have been less exposed to it)

Plus people have made an existing sport out of it nowadays ( no flying necesarry...) and even so, it doesnt say in the quiz that fictional sports are excluded.

Plus the fact that you call something stupid simply because you didn't get the answer, isnt really a mature thing to do...

bicycling should work for eggbeater also. It is a type of pedal that is very lightweight that looks like a cross between a spark plug and an egg beater.

Sep 15, 2019
It is both real ( though not exactly the same as in the book obviously) and there is no reason not to have fictional sports on the quiz. I really dont get why people get so upset that it is added in this quiz

(I think it might be the same people that throw a fit when a unicorn is called an animal. Because it is fictional according to their logic it can't be an animal (yet they never say that about dragons...) well, humans in books arent humans then either, because they are made up for the story aswell, eventhough there are real versions of humans)

It is irrelevant. It could still have a place on this quiz, if not a sport, what would you call it? If a unicorn and a dragon is not an animal, what would you call it? They arent plants, thats for sure.

Apparently "egg beater" should be switched to a different clue because there are at least three different sports associated with that term that have been mentioned on here: bicycling, synchronized swimming, and sport fishing. Unfortunately, this information is falling upon deaf ears.

Judo should really be accepted for tap out (I cant find where/when tapping originated, but in most places judo is the most known sport for it). (Plus perhaps a yellow box?)
