So I can do this without too much trouble by going through the map, but if I try to go in alphabetical order (by using the song) I'm always missing a few. Curious as to how other people fare comparing the two methods.

It's amazing how many people will attempt a quiz without reading the instructions. Now I understand why so many do poorly on standardized tests such as the SATs; it's not because they are not smart, it's because they refuse to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!

Yes, as stated earlier, no matter how many times you play you can only get a max of five points per quiz. Otherwise some people would find an easy quiz and take it over and over to rack up the points.
