New site for practice with quiz generator

Postby dantb » Thu Aug 31, 2017 5:39 pm

Former HS/collegiate quizbowler here. I just created a new site that you/your teams can use for practice! The site is approaching 100,000 questions already:

http://triviabliss.com

The most unique thing about it is that you can generate quizzes on the fly for practice sets. You can just pick a category and click "go":

http://triviabliss.com/quiz-generator

Let me know if you have any questions/comments about it!

This is almost useless unless you want to study for NAC. People playing actually pyramidal quiz bowl will not benefit from knowing "In what decade did Josef Stalin die?"

I just didn't want to be the first to say it, but yeah. This is all really obscure and not good for pyramidal at all. Just stick to http://www.quinterest.org for good questions (83,637 as of 9/3).

It's over 80,000 tossups (and almost 20,000 bonuses) at this point.

Well, considering it's a 100,000 question database, I'd say a good estimate would be 100 for an over/under. I'll take bets of a pari-mutuel nature in the exclusive form of Betmays: a new currency allowing people to place bets of no tangible worth! I'll place a bet of 1 million Betmays on the over.

CURRENT ODDS (edited):

Over - 0.0000009:1 (1000000 Betmay pool)
Under - 900000:1 (1 Betmay pool)

Give me one Betmay on the under. Too much value to pass. Kind of like if someone offer 10,000 to 1 on McGregor (vs. Mayweather). Kind of have to throw something on that. You know?
