11x2 Quizify: Your Questions - and Prizes
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone for playing! It will take a little time to assemble the quiz and credit the winners, but I will post a list when it's complete and then we'll get your prizes out! :)
We at HAVAmedia are involved with the development of Quizify, a trivia app where you can create interest-based quizzes. Included in the app will be an official 11x2 football quiz, and we thought you guys could join us in coming up with the best questions. After all, are there fans more hardcore than you? (No, there really aren't!)
Come up with a question, and for every one of your questions that we use you win a $10 Amazon gift card!
1) Comment below with a trivia question - they don't all have to be impossible, there should be some for the casual fan
2) Include 4 possible answers
3) Either include in the comment or if you want it secret PM me, Cat, with the question, correct answer, and a LINK TO A SOURCE (like Wikipedia) confirming the correct answer whenever possible
4) Vote other members' questions up/down with Agree or Disagree votes to help us choose the winners!*
We will choose the best questions to include in the App (plus a few staff contributions :) )

Quiz writing tips:
-Leave out your opinions and factual statements from the questions. For example “What year did the first McDonalds, the best cheese burger chain in the world, open? “
-Avoid trick questions. Trick questions in trivia are a disaster and almost guaranteed to cause an argument.
-Be Accurate. Make sure that the questions are up to date, accurate (using reliable sources) and cannot be disputed in anyway.
-Carefully word your questions and make them entertaining. Hand out some brain food to be sure the trivia question is not dull.
-Make sure to mix up your difficulty level within your quiz. You will always want to have a few questions most people will get right. Example: “What is the name of the main character in the video game series Legend of Zelda?”. Most people that have an average interest in video games know that Link is the main character.
-You’re alternative answers should not be completely out of context. It´s more challenging and fun to have realistic alternative answers
*Agree/Disagree votes on comments will be used as an indicator, but may not influence final question selection.
