In fact, these are the 12 sons of Jacob. Joseph was never a tribe, his sons, Ephraim and Mannasseh, were tribes. Levi wasn't a tribe either, but rather the priestly caste.

I concur. Maybe the easiest fix is to change this to the 12 Sons of Israel and then create the other quiz as well.

Missed the three least guessed which were also the three hardest to spell - maybe a correlation? Although in my case it was just poor memory. I kept trying to include versions of Joseph's sons, thinking they were names of his brothers. Time to reread Genesis.

Just remember your Joseph and the Amazing Techni-colored Dreamcoat, and you're all set.

Dan seems rather informal. How about the Tribe of Steve?

Got 90% while reading Genesis 49. I went for the Bible toward the end of the quiz, and that's why I apparently missed one.

This is quite wrong. These are the twelve sons of Jacob, not the twelve tribes.
