Wacky Packages Quizzes
« on: April 29, 2018, 01:30:27 PM »
I have created a few Wacky Packages quizzes via Sporcle.

https://www.sporcle.com/playlists/markcavich/wacky-packages-quizzes

I believe that link should take you to my playlist.

You basically get hints on the left side, and you respond by typing your answer. You don't have to go in order or select a specific one to answer at a time.

Enjoy!

Mark, pretty neat. Just one comment: in quiz 1, "the first title in the 16th series" is ambiguous, I didn't know if you meant alphabetically or on the checklist (the latter was the case). You might want to clarify that one, in fairness.

It would also be nice if you could move on to the next question and come back to a previous one.

I am not sure what you mean. The format is as though you can answer to any of the five hints in any order by typing the answer into the start box. Could you specify?

I might have made a mistake with the chosen template, though. I chose "classic" rather than "multiple choice" in the beginning, and the latter would probably be preferred. Will have to experiment.

EDIT:
I created a 4th quiz and used the multiple choice format. While it is easier in a sense, the format is much easier and simpler to navigate. I might try to redo the first three this way if at all possible.

Enjoy!

Pretty cool. I like the simpler multiple choice format, but as you stated, it is easier.

My mistake, I thought they had to be entered in order.

Speaking of quizzes:  I was wondering if anybody might have a copy of the quiz I did many years ago on Greg's forum?  The quiz was titled "Wacky Pack School" and I believe that Dave Schmidt (Paul Maul) was the winner.  I can't find any of the questions any longer on my computer and it appears that all the messages on Greg's forum are gone now.  If anybody saved those questions, I would love to get a copy of them.

that was a great quiz with questions from somewhat easy to really mischievous.
I was hoping I had a copy, but I'm thinking I might have printed a hardcopy to work from and never had an electronic version. Hope it's found!

Unfortunately Iím pretty sure I submitted my answers via PM, and I didnít keep the questions.

"Logically speaking, what were the first five Wacky titles ever seen by the public?"

I'm not sure if it was you or Scott Broberg who came up with this, but this Wacky quiz question stands out in my mind.

That was a Scotty B quiz question.  Honestly, I can hardly remember any of my questions now!

I was not on the previous forum (Greg's ?) so my curiosity is peaked. Is the intended answer the 5 Wacky Packages shown on the 1967 Die-Cut release box?

hopefully piqued as well.  ;)

you got it, the 5 titles on the box
there was a good range fun brain teasers, set out as math, band, recess, history(?), etc.
I recall one was something like "What is the next number in this sequence:  15, 19, 21, ?"

Didn't Gadzooka and Ratz appear before 1967 on other topps formats?

Ratz was also a Foney Ad. Several other Wacky titles appear on their checklist.

I remember if you gave up and went with the first five numbered dies, you got credit for two, since Camals and Campy were Nos. 4 and 5.

I don't recall the actual numbers you used, but one question ran something like this:

"Let's play a game. In this game, 1 and 2 are worth 5, but 5 is worth 1."

Referring of course to the 1994 Wacky Pogs, an obscure product I don't remember ever seeing in real life.
