Ah yes, I was worried about that issue becoming a problem for participants, so my apologies about this. But to be honest, I simply can't think of any other way of creating such a quiz without that problem existing. If anyone has any ideas to solve that issue, I'm all for hearing it. The quiz was intended purely to be fun, not to cause grievances. (And if its not actually fun, then I guess thats a problem in itself! :lol: ) As for the current round, while several films have been identified so far, there are a few left unanswered.
Up for some BloodBath action, via DOSBox? If so, send me a P.M.

I feel like I know 10 and I've maybe seen 2 but I have honestly no clue.

6. The Warriors
8. Dracula
10. The Expendables

Maybe make correct guesses score 1 point and the ones that people take a while to guess 2 points (after 48 hours, presumably more difficult caps).

Maybe in future we should put our answers in SPOILER tags, so later posters can still have a fair shot at guessing them?

Wouldn't the person who answered right first still win?

It's just about getting the most obscure movies and obscure pictures from them if you want to keep the quiz running for weeks. The downside is that most people will forget about it by then.

Just give a timer on when the next round begins. If it's really that important to all people involved, they'll make time for it. Easy.

I think I might try to incorporate both of these ideas to improve the quiz. But the timer idea still could cause problems due to timezone difference i.e. what time could be chosen in order for it to be a good time for all those entering?
