You might be right as B.C. seems to have orange hair in the comic strip. Hmmmm. I checked the German Wikipedia it says B.C. is the main charakter of the game Now investigating the French and English pages named him Thor. Well, as other participants called him "Grog!!!", you have been the only one with the right answer. I will change that in the hitlist.

I'm guessing most people thought the picture was from Grog's Revenge (it wasn't). Grog is the hairball with legs, not the character in the picture.

It was a lot of fun for me, plus I learned much about our system.
And it's great the loot-box is on it's way again. Nice to see all the new stuff! If anyone get in trouble with shipping costs, please let me know.

This will be the route of the box:

  1. dan
  2. ren
  3. gdx
  4. TheKid
  5. Manuel
  6. tfh
  7. Meits
  8. sdsnatcher73
  9. Pencioner
  10. Samor

Samor will return the box to me or will be the box-keeper for the next years quiz.
To keep the idea of the loot-box alive, please take what you want but also put some MSX relalted things in, too.
Do'nt have to be expensive or rare but should be something you like to receive, too

Next year I will love to see contributions from many users, as this was much more interresting. Please collect your ideas , I will do a newspost in november to remaind you.
Thanks all of you!

Thanks hamlet for organizing another edition (despite your busy schedule)!

The final quest by TheKid was pretty cool. The joystick triggers was kinda fun as well Smile

The 2017 edition had some really cool quest: Where in the World is my MSX, matching doubles, placing bets etc Smile

If the intention is to get more people participating, it might be interesting to figure out why only a handful members do each year? Is it the difficulty, the amount of questions/quests... (a break halfway doesn't hurt I guess Wink) or simply no interest?

For sure, to rank high, it helps to put in the time, which often makes the difference between having an answer or not. Which can be frustrating at times (because: how much time are you willing to spend before you acknowledge your defeat..? Smile) Hehe, the 2017 edition was dubbed Hamlet's Insanely Christmas Quiz.. You do have to cater for your sanity at times here.. (I did give up on Manuel's memory quest Wink)

[...] making it a quiz for the very few people that have a huge MSX collection or are otherwise really, really REALLY into it

So.. you can find out a lot if you put in the time/effort searching etc.
One that scores high here, can fail miserably in a ready knowledge quiz Smile

Last time I checked PMs weren't working?

We will think about making the quiz more popular next year. Like very year.
However, I have also received several mails thanking users who are not actively participating but still have fun with it.
That's great! Because feedback is very important for such a big event and effort.
During the last years I have been able to try out many things and test them with your help.
2017 was a very elaborate quiz, where on some days new tasks were set in a two-hour rhythm.
I enjoyed it, even if it was very exhausting to master this besides family and work.
The resonance was not very big, so i decided to make the tasks easier the following year. I also noticed that the community was willing to help me. Fantastic, as was shown again this year.
My task to make the quiz varied and interesting for many players and to cover many topics was made much easier.
The quiz for 2020 will again cover 23 days and have an easy to understand point system. Rewards will be given for regular participation and also for specialist knowledge that cannot simply be googled.
Maybe there will be a handicap for all-time-winner, what do you think?
I am curious to see where the path will lead.

Oh, wow! I didn't expect I would receive the l00tbox as well! Nice stuff!
Now I will need to find something to put into to box... I only have a Zemmix Neo, and old MSX-info with a listing I made when I was 13 and an Arcade Pro Joystick... That's about all the MSX stuff I have. Hmmm, another challenge. But I guess I will have some time! Smile
