With the amount of outstanding games that saw the light of day this year, it's hard for me to emphasize one of them. However, one stands out from the crowd because of its unique game design (and my daughter would say to the dog):

Two of you beat the multiverse:

ren            IIII-I I-III- I-III
John Hassink   IIIIII IIIIII I--I-
Meits          III-II IIIII- --II-
dan            IIIIII -IIII- IIIII
gdx            -I--I- -IIII- --II-
Manuel         -I-III ----I∏ ---I-
tfh            -I--II I-I-I- ---I-
Pencioner      -I--I- --I--- -----
sdsnatcher73   -IIIII -IIII- ---I-
TheKid         ----I- -I-II- II-I-

Let's move on to day 18:
Which games do you recognize?

As alwosy write your answer in small letters to DIEANTWOORD@GMX.NET on wednesday 18th.

Tomorrow you will experience ren's revenge on the existing MSX user community. His contribution to the quiz consists of little more then 2 pixels.

Still don't recognize the game of yesterday, which one is it. (and where is the dog Smile )
As of todays question, HAMLET, are you serious. Is it just me or is this years quiz way more difficult then last year?

Lootbox update: Yesterday I received a japanese game al the way from Germany. The box is getting quite filled with nice msx-goodies Smile. I envy this years number one.

If someone has a remake of who dares wins 2 laying around and wants to donate it to the lootbox, please do, I realy want to play it (I mean test it before adding it to the lootbox Smile)

One of the great games by Hikaru Games.

Yes, yesterdays game was Multiverse from Hikaru games. You need to switch between the boy and his dog to solve the game.
As it's getting harder, I like to give an hint today. Some cartridge colors are much more rare than others. So chances be good to bet on the right horse with those.

I don't want to spoil the fun or start a flame war for the 10 (count 'em) people that are able to answer these questions, but I go with TheKid in this one. Even if he even scored some points already :-) It's too darn difficult. I've been using MSX and playing games since 1986 when I was 6 years old, but I've been unable to answer even one question here. I see myself as a slightly above average MSX user, but by no means a professional or guru or something like that. That renders me completely obsolete for this quiz. Ofcourse I appreciate all work and spare time that goes into this, but honestly I think it's not really fair to most users, making it a quiz for the very few people that have a huge MSX collection or are otherwise really, really REALLY into it.
Having said that, I wish every one the best of luck answering the questions, and a very merry christmas in advance!

Several answers were here in the Wiki or findable with Google search. Other questions are lucky to find but the important thing is to participate.

I don't have any original MSX game in my house, and only owen a few in the 80's & 90's. This means that the points I have gathered were mostly done through Googe & using the hints in the pictures. And yeah... This means I won't win, but I don't care. I have spent quite some time (more time than I planned to) looking for answers on those questions and I am having fun with that Smile

I also want to send out a very big thank you to all the people that have contributed to this years Quiz with their questions and especially Hamlet who has done some nice artwork again. TFH really likes this tradition, although he'll never win a thing.

Glad you like it Rataplan!
I try to offer a puzzle adapted to the participants. The direction is already decided within the first few days and depends completely on the resonance.
The participants should be challenged, often one reveals completely different mysteries when seeking the solution. Every visitor is invited to contribute these secrets to the quiz. The more submitted, the less my work. I very much welcome that. In addition, as in previous years, I am trying to integrate valuation tasks in which everyone has the chance to score points.
Often it's just a little bit of research.
Today you see e.g. a green cartridge. There weren't many games of this color. So your chance is great to receive a point and get part of the loot-box story one day! Good luck!
