I've been trying to win this mini badge for a couple of weeks now. I would never have believed that it was so difficult to get 15 questions wrong!

Anyway, I digress.... Is this challenge still available? It seems to have disappeared from the list of challenges.. If that's the case I won't mind too much apart from the fact that I've been delibarately scoring really poorly in the 'impossible' category of the Global Challenge! Ha ha

Hang on!... Have I been playing in the correct quiz category for this badge?!!

Yes, it still exists. You can find it under the level Bonus Challenges, on the challenge page --- level 50

You are correct, it is for gettin 0/15 in under 131 seconds in The Global's Impossible game.

It's certainly a toughy! crazy

It's that 'under 131 seconds' that's a killer. If you try to read and be sure of an incorrect answer, watch for one question which has twenty word sized possible answers, they can breach the balloon and cause unwanted time elapses.

Try this sequence of answers:
1a
2a
3c
4b
5d
6b
7d
8a
9a
10c
11d
12c
13c
14b
15d

I think someone already went over the odds of never getting it if you choose 'a' all the time. Something like four of them will be right at least 70% of the time and at least one will be right 99.995% of the time. It will come down to knowing the right one and answering wrong on half and lucky guesses on the other half. But it will come if you keep trying for it.

Thanks Mehaul, but no need.... I came down this morning switched on and logged in, nonchalantly went through the impossible quiz and cracked it in 85 seconds!! Ha ha

I shall keep that sequence for future use though...

Cheers!

I often found that I got more correct by trying to get them wrong, than ever I did trying to get them right. That comes from being as thick as two short planktons.

Cheers Postie, thanks Surdoux.... The same thing happened when I was going for the point precision (6789) badge. The day after I'd posted my frustrations in these forums BANG! straight in there! lol

Here Duckie, Duckie.

I also do bird calls: Chirp tweet tweet chirp tweet.

Maybe the same strategy works for the Duck Badge?

Honk honk honk. Or is it squawk squawk for little ducks?

Unfortunately Mehaul, isn't the Duckie badge given randomly? Not much to be done about that I'm afraid!
