    Hello weekend wikitrivia_Draft-1.png
    Hello lovely folks,

    are you feeling that Friday vibe already? I sure hope you are, so get ready to sink into your sofa, and let's have some fun together. :cool:

    You probably have a lot of notable dates in your head, from those you were forced to memorize in school to the ones you remember out of curiosity - or just because the numbers look... wacky!

    Though, what's difficult is organizing the endless maze of dates and guessing how different events relate to each other, even when you don't know the exact date. There are two ways to go about this: deduction or pure luck (is this a metaphor for life? 😳).

    You've probably read the title, so I won't bore you with further introductions. The game I'm talking about is:

    It's a simple game that involves just that: sorting events along a timeline.

    It pulls data from Wikidata and Wikipedia and displays it randomly, meaning you're just as likely to get Napoleon vs. Rick Astley as you are to get Rebecca Black vs. @Carl. 🤪
    As a result, some beginnings are better than others, but as more events populate the timeline, they become closer together, making it increasingly harder to find the correct time period.

    Just think about it: it would be much easier to determine which came first: the fall of the Berlin Wall or Gandhi's birth, than if you had to choose between the extinction of the dinosaurs and @dsmonteiro's birth. 😁

    So, go ahead and give it a shot and share your best score with us.

    After playing it for... — oh, wow, it's been an hour already — I've gotten a modest streak of 11.

    Can you beat it? 😏

    Not sure if I'll be able to reach again the previous top streak. I'll gladly read any tips and tricks you have to share.

    That's the good part about WikiTrivia: there aren't really any guides or strategies, so you can test your knowledge without having to learn the meta.
    Although I'd say it all comes down to a few basics:
    1. Most of the times, you shouldn't be looking hard at the title. Some descriptions and images are actually quite telling. [​IMG]
    2. Hope you don't get too many 20th century singers. :rolleyes:
    3. Profit!?

    That Hiroshima shrine tricked me! I thought it was a memorial from after the bomb dropped.

    P.S. - And then you have the game trying to make you lose!

    Pfffff, didn't get any further. This is difficult, some years are really close to each other.

    Oh come that's basic knowledge, we all know "the final problem" was published after Max Ernst was born. :rolleyes::confused:
