After discussion in XIII's thread - http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=119993 - we decided to open another quiz thread with similar rules. The difference - you can research your answers. Anything from Google to the library is permitted. The idea is that most questions should require a bit of inventive searching to find an answer, so that we have to find something out and hopefully learn a bit along the way. The rules, based on those in XIII's thread - 1) Send your answers to the questioner using a private message. Do not post in the thread. 2) As many questions as you like, within reason. A balance of cultures/periods/general subjects is encouraged though not codified. However, because people can research and not have to rely on what they already know, it's OK to focus on the areas that interest you - as that won't handicap everyone with different interests. 3) The quiz-setter should state how long people have to answer. A few days is a good idea. 4) Will announce points won by each challenger in thread. 5) Will announce answers at end of round - arguments over answers can take place now. 6) Highest scorer gets to set the next round of questions, and cycle is repeated. 7) A poster who won the previous round and prepared a quiz need not prepare a quiz again if he wins again in the round after his prepared quiz - so as not to turn quiz into a two persons affair. 8) In the event of a tie at the top, the questioner is to decide who gets to do next quiz.
