How are you doing it? Nothing for me seems to work for the second password...

I'm wondering the same thing.

It's already going to be odd having to specifically get 7 wrong to get 256. :P


Well, you don't have to get them wrong; just be really, really slow.

You could play a 5-question quiz for your 256. Or just play something difficult so you won't have many intentional wrong answers smile

I think I am correct in assuming this; I just want to make sure. It doesn't matter whether the passwords have spaces in them or not. "this song" and "thissong" counts as the same thing, right?

The challenge hints explain the rules. You can always go back to read them by typing in previous passwords.

Well, it says that "this song" can be written as "thissong" but it doesn't say anything about both being options. Maybe it wants no spaces in the answers.
Although now that I think it about, I'm guessing both would work, and I'm being a little too paranoid.

Read the instructions after the first password was correctly entered - I remember seeing a clear statement there. If you're still on the first one, then I don't know what applies, but a bit of trial and error should make it clear, since I managed to guess it without knowing.

Edited to correct the information and avoid misleading information.

In profiles, the pet monster badgelet comes after the pet monster II badgelet. It's not necessarily a bug, but it is a bit unusual...

Terry - I don't know if it's possible but since we now use quiz game far more (both for badges and daily challenges), it can sometimes be mildly frustrating that I suddenly get hit with a FITB question in a series of multiple choice or vice versa. Do you think there could be an icon for the question type displayed along with the question text during the pre-read time so that the player knows whether to prepare for keyboard or mouse input? Saves a few seconds smile

Essentially all this would take would be a pen or similar icon displayed with the FITB text (T/F and MC use the same way of inputting the solution)

Hmm a good idea, I'll add it into the next revision of that app, but that might be a bit in the future since that bit is not done by me.

I completely misread that line as "I'll 'ave a party 2 today too".

But you're adding part 2. Darn, was wanting a party. wink

Added mini "Winners Takes in All 2", a sequel to our first challenge.

You can blame Wesley for this one.

When I type in the same password twice (don't ask why I'm doing this, maybe it's because I think there's a hint there or maybe I just want to further examine the message), I'm getting different messages. Some say "Sorry" and some say something else like "Close" or "if you're hearing it...". Why am I getting different messages?
