This is quite a popular game in Flickr groups and I think it could work here too. Just look through the profile of the last person to post, find a quiz you like and submit a link to it. The next person looks through your profile and posts a link to one of your quizzes and so on. Hopefully we'll end up with a list of great, hand picked quizzes for people to look through.

Be sure to post a link to your own profile as well as the game you choose.

To get the ball rolling, I'll pick a quiz by Matt (the guy who created Sporcle). Poster 2 will pick one of my quizzes, poster 3 will pick one of poster 2's quizzes etc. Obviously you can only really take part if you've made quizzes. Also feel free to make some comment explaining why you picked the quiz you did. Feel free to pick from either Published or Contributed games. Just pick something you like.

I'm picking '90s Video Games by Matt just purely for the nostalgia it gives me. So many great games I loved as a kid in that quiz.

My pick for BuddyBoy would be Sporcle Memory Minefield, I thought it was fun and challanging, when you first play it, you think it will be boring, but its a lot more fun than you may think!

My pick for Toby123 would be the Bible Book Imposter Minefield. I like all of the "fake answer" quizzes that came along with clickable games, and that one is both a novel idea and the decoy answers show true creativity.

My pick for you Dru, is  http://www.sporcle.com/games/druhutch/cluedo, The Great Sporcle Mystery. It is very clever and fun and it must have taken so long to make! The fact that 36.6% got them all right as well is a very good sign for a quiz that takes so long to complete as it means that the quiz takers have all really gotten into it. Again I like this quiz alot :P!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to more closely examine the RobPro repertoire!... I'm sure RobPro has a wealth of awesome games that deserve to be mentioned here... So I'm going to go the route of which "underplayed" game should have gotten a lot more play? http://www.sporcle.com/games/RobPro/smile is simple game, clearly made just-for-fun; but I appreciated it, and I understand how much work actually went into making it, having done some picture-style quizzes.

Hey! I am more of a geography guy and pretty much do horrible on every single music quiz. But I gave it a go on some of your quizzes. Maybe you were hoping for a more exotic answer, but I really enjoyed this one. I can easily understand why so many others enjoy it as well. It's a great idea, and that creative twist with hiding some of the artists was perfect! I do say I think the colors are a bit...not my style. Maybe to many varieties of colors not really fitting next to each other? However, I find it a very, very good quiz! (And yes, I went straight on the "Imagine" trap!)

Wiggytitch, it's so hard to pick a single favorite quiz of yours! So I'll go with two wonderful series you created: I really enjoyed your Mini Minefileds series (they inspired my Gimme Five Minefields quiz) and I like your alphabetical history series too. There's always one or two answers on those quizzes that wind up on the tip of my tongue but I can never remember, unfailing inducing a giant groan when the quiz ends. I love that feeling.

American Classic Cars Picture Quiz

When I was a kid my best friend lived across the street and his dad always had a classic car.  My friend and his dad could name any car just by looking at the headlights and to this day, I try to do that when I'm driving on the highway.  This quiz brought back great childhood memories and it's a superb image quiz.
