Thanks!

Before I get on to the important matter of the winners, I would first like to say a huge thank-you to all who entered this competition. The feedback in your entries was all positive, and has made the process all the more enjoyable.

Analysis of the Results!


From looking at the results, it seems I got the difficulty level just about right. There were only five people who achieved the maximum score, but the most common score was 21, with 10/54 people missing just one question.

I was worried when I made the quiz that a few of the questions would prove too difficult, but even the trickiest still had over twenty people getting them correct. On the flip side, there were only two clues that everyone got.

I had some very amusing answers to the clues, and I have put the best of them in the comments section for each game

The Winners!

Five people got the maximum score, so it was down to the tiebreaker - the average was a pretty impressive 79%

First place! - 10.00

The Future
If you want more of these quizzes, let me know! This was much more popular than I thought it was going to be, with 54 entries. It has made me want to go and do another contest straight away. My initial thoughts were to do another Rebus contest as this one was so much fun, but I also had an idea to do a "identify which game the picture comes from" style contest. Please, if you would like to see more of the Rebus puzzles, or something else, let me know in the comments section at the bottom.
