I'm assuming with an average score thus far of 17/18 that mostly U.S.-centric people are taking this quiz.

This quiz wasn't that hard for non-US people (like me) since most of the categories contain at least one famous or recent example.

That was the intention. Especially since it was made by a Brit who only knows half the presidents anyway :P (Though I can assure you the answers are correct, I did my research!)

it's also just an easy quiz if you know much at all about US presidents. Nothing on here was particularly obscure or hard to guess, for many you just need to know how to spell or pronounce their names.

for example, question #1 - guess young presidents, #2 if you don't know Bush, Truman etc just randomly guess you'll get one, #4 Lewinsky scandal pretty famous, #5 Watergate pretty famous, #6 turn on the news, #7 name any old president i.e. Washington.. these are all easy. trickiest ones might be the biological children thing (it's fairly well known Buchanan was the only bachelor president), maybe the illegitimate children thing (fairly well known Jefferson was sleeping with his slave mistress), West Point (guess presidents that were also generals, it's a famous military academy), or maybe the moustaches- the presidents with moustaches are pretty old and many are obscure.

Brit here and I found this reasonably tricky. I missed the two on children as well as the West Point question. I should have thought of @Kalbahamut's logic of naming generals but it's tricky against the clock some times. As for the born in Massachusetts question, that could have been any of the Presidents to me. I also managed to miss two easy ones. I thought of one of the answers for the alliterative question but some how after thinking of it I just decided to move on to the next question and not bother to type the answer in. Genius.

Warren Harding had an illegitimate child, but also had no biological children? That doesn't make sense.

His children were illegitimate because he fathered them with an old butter churn. They were also therefore not biological but rather some kind of dairy.

Fun fact: the Republican party has won the popular vote for President exactly once since 1992. That once was an incumbent President in a time of war.

Jimmy Carter's first name is not Jimmy. It is James which does not in fact have a Y in it.

Commonly called Jimmy. As mentioned in the caveats:

I got the 'Y' answer by reading 'Jimmy Carter' in the Nobel Prize answers which I had guessed by naming Obama :D
