Think you know a lot about MFGG? Step right up, come on down, and all that good stuff that game show hosts tell you to do! The Super-Duper MFGG Quiz Show will test your knowledge of MFGG's most obscure facts! There's an Event Winner badge on the line, so give it your best shot!

You get one point (and maybe a Tusk Buck or two!) for each correct answer. The tiebreaker question will be used to determine a winner if multiple entries tie for the most number of points. You're not penalized for guessing, so I recommend trying to answer each question even if you're unsure about the answer.

The contest ends on Saturday, July 29. Submit your answers using PM. Please include "Super-Duper MFGG Quiz Show" in your subject line - doing so will make life easier for me.

The questions!

Spoiler:


A few notes:
  • Answers were verified as of 7:30 P.M. Eastern time on July 16, 2017. It's unlikely that any of the answers have changed since then.
  • "Forums" refers to the current iteration of the MFGG forums. It excludes any topics and posts from the first phpBB board that ran in 2009 and 2010, as well as the old IPB boards.
  • Anyone with a forum account may participate (except for HylianDev and myself, since we can find out all the answers!). Anyone with access to the forum Admin Control Panel can participate, but they won't get credit for answering the forum skin question, since they have the ability to find the answer.

Have fun! Legend has it that some of these answers can be found fairly easily, but some will probably require educated guesses!

You have to be crafty!

One idea might be to look at the oldest games, and think about a really old game that people still talk about a lot.

The reason Vinny and I can't win this game is because we have database access and we're able to look up the submissions and sort them by views.

Several of these questions can be quickly answered using certain tools available to any member on the mainsite. You may also find the MFGG Wiki to be helpful in answering certain questions.

If you're wondering how I found the answer to some of the more obscure questions, I ran queries on the SQL databases used by MFGG to store information about games, comments, and so forth. In some cases, I used PivotTables in Microsoft Excel to refine my analysis. However, all you need to make a good guess is a bit of knowledge of MFGG history.

We have a winner! Q-Nova correctly answered five of the questions, earning him an Event Winner badge (and an IOU for five Tusk Bucks if we implement that feature!). Old Yuanxian also did well, answering three questions correctly.

Here are the correct answers, as of July 16 (although I doubt they've changed during the past two weeks):

Congrats on winning, Q-Nova!

And wow, MFGG is so big! I gave it a try, anyway.
