I got 2 wrong and 36 right...

I shouldn't have missed the first one, but I accidentally clicked on it because the person sitting next to me bumped me! Now the second one, I was just plain WRONG!!!

And I don't like being wrong.

(I'm in Algebra right now, cuz it's the end of the school year and we can go on Math websites...)

Ganesh: 2:16 is fast!

Magister_Magi: only 2 wrong is fine.

The scoring is strange: you will always end up with 36 right because you have to click on the right one to advance. So you could end up with 36 wrong and 36 right! Maybe I should change that?

This game is interesting. I'm not going to post my score because it wasn't as good as ganesh's!

I agree. When you get one wrong, it should move onto the next question, because there's only two options and it's obvious which one is right. Maybe a time limited version of the game - Hall of Fame who can get the most questions in a minute? Or maybe, getting one wrong could add a few seconds to your total time?

Well, I can't get on it so i can't tell you.

Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being saught. It always defeats order, because it is better organized.

Maybe you don't have flash. What actually happens?

36 correct 5 wrong - 2 mins 3 secs

I was kinda not concentrating that time, I'll try again

36 correct, 4 wrong - 1 mins 3 secs

On the third attempt, I got 36 correct and 1 wrong in 1 minute and 50 seconds. I still think it could be improved, though. :\

Great game BTW

UPDATE 21/03/2007: 1 minute and 18 seconds :: 36 correct, 0 wrong.

Go me.
