Fun quiz, though "Wore a Panama Hat" seems a not very specific clue. There are plenty of pictures of FDR wearing one, other presidents like Coolidge had worn them as well, yet only Truman worked.

Agreed this question is ambiguous (and Wikipedia suggests Theodore Roosevelt may be most prevalent), it's been removed now.

"His wife was named Martha" comes up as George Washington, but Thomas Jefferson's wife was also named Martha.

Fixed the clue to state while president, as Martha Jefferson passed away before he was president.

Nice quiz! I was going to ask why one appeared twice, then I actually read the instructions.

I think you meant "assassinate", not "assassinated", in your Hinckley question. (cc Jody Foster)

Thanks for making this and introducing a new element to the game play, but, even though forewarned, there were too many repeats. I'd prefer a series of quizzes with unique answers than one quiz with a randomized answer bank.

I actually liked that aspect. I got three McKinley's. Sort of like hitting jackpot on a slot machine. :)

Super cool! I like how you can take it a bunch of times and get different clues every time.
