    I'm guessing the questions are different for each person? I only had 2 poker questions, and the first was pretty obvious, to me, at least.

    I can't believe I missed a day. I wouldn't have if it wasn't screwed up this morning.

    I did not expect the daily quizzes to be as difficult as they are. Although the time factor has evened out, the scores are much lower than I expected.

    Anyone think I should tinker with the categories a little, to see if it can become a more interesting challenge rather than an overbearing one?

    I could drop the Poker, Raw, and boxing, and add a couple more baseball and perhaps football. I'm open to suggestions.

    I'd definitely take out the wrestling questions, and probably the poker questions, too. Boxing ... I know nothing about boxing, but I'd imagine there might be some boxing fans in our crowd.

    New categories have been selected. I took into consideration the advice expressed here. I also found out I could see the difficulty levels for each of the quizzes associated with a particular category (I didn't know that before).

    These should make for a more enjoyable game, hopefully challenging enough so that speed won't be the only real determaining factor.

    One thing though, I had assumed it would start the next day, but was incorrect. So instead of going back to the old categories (and possibly resetting the question pool), I left the new categories and closed the tourney for today. It will be up again for tomorrow. I know it will skew the point totals a bit, but more fair than having different players using different categories.

    LOL, who faced who on a particular day was not what I expected from that category. As you can see by my score today, I had no clue. As a matter of fact, the only one I got right was the poker question, and that was a guess as well.


    BTW, the new categories are:

    MLB HOF
    MLB Historical
    Baseball Cards
    NFL Mixture
    NBA Historical
    Boxing Mixture
    USA by Numbers--This will be mixed sports
    One of the examples used for this was:

    What's the distance to the centerfield wall at Veterans Stadium?

    You should have left it the way it was. I dont know crap about wrestling, but I am cool with that. I do know some poker though.

    PS-Why cant I take todays trivia? Wouldnt that make me a day behind?

    Let me hear some opinions on the new categories.

    I think I like them so far. Todays questions I thought were very reasonable. Nothing way out there that almost nobody would know. I am disappointed I only got 5. Yesterdays questions were a good lot as well (and you thought you knew baseball cards!). It looks as though 7's and 8's will be good scores, with times in the high 50's-low 60's. I think that'll make for a very competitive tournament.

    Let me hear what you think.

    Thank you,
