Match Em!

With all this trivia that has been floating around in my head and life of late, I had to find an outlet. What I've come up with should prove to be lots* of fun.

The game is Match Em, and as the name suggests, it is a matching game. I consider it accessible trivia, because even if you don't know each and every one, you can usually reason out at least a few correct answers. The game also tracks the average score of everyone who has played for a given data set. Examples of data sets currently included are Painters and Paintings, States and Nicknames*, Car Makes and Models, and much more. So try it out. Let me know if you have problems or questions. (Please to note: it hasn't been tested on any Macintosh browsers. If you try it out on one, let me know if it works.)

The part of this whole shebang that I am excited about it the ability to add new data sets easily. For this, I was hoping that I could call on you, dear reader, to help out. What matching sets can you come up with? Send me (via e-mail or the contact page)* anywhere between 7 and 14 matching items in a given category. In about a week, I'll add all [appropriate] submissions to the game.

Unless you enjoy employing Mac users to do your bidding, you can finally test Safari on your Windows box!

Fun game!

Noticed that the arrays for your clues and answers are in the same order. While I don't think my perfect score counts, I think I should get bonus points for resourcfulness. (Don't worry, I only looked at one and didn't submit my cheating score, only my sadly defiecient real ones!)

Did you know the state nickname of Missouri came from a Missouri senator who proclaimed that "frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I'm from Missouri, and you have got to show me" others suggest it was cause Missourians (?) were so slow you had to just show them. YOU make the call... (knowing a few sharp people from Missouri, I am inclined to pick the former (Sara). By the way, I got 100% on the state nicknames.
