Agreed. Enjoyed it but would have liked more time to get them all.

That's not much time to do all that, since many of the answers aren't very clear (hotel employee could be any number of answers, it's just trial and error to figure out it's maid).

Yeah, kiwirage, done several of these now, and us mere humans need more time. I really think the stats skew because of people taking them over and over. But I really do love these!!!

Still love them! STILL need more time! The percentages should show you that no one is able to get to much of the country unscramblings.

I may be wrong, but I thought I read somewhere on this site that stats are only counted the first time a quiz is taken, so repeats shouldn't make any difference. Does anyone else know for certain?

Ggrrr sAnk. I tried, Sink and Sunk and couldn't understand what else it could be. Sunk didn't occur to me. Doh.

Same issue here. Better phrasing would be "what happened to the Titanic" - it sank. What the Titanic did - was sink. The difference is important.

I tried sink too but then rethought the question: what did the Titanic do? It sank. It's fair enough

For some reason the answer for 'Pot cover' is 'Jar', this needs to be changed.

loved the quiz! didn't get a lot at first because i keep on forgetting that i need to consider tenses when answering :(( for example: i entered 'sink' instead of 'sank', 'dim' instead of 'dims' etc. so i thought i'd answered wrongly :((
