Great quiz, all the classic games from when I was a kid.

One complaint: I found the clue for Backgammon somewhat misleading. Only one of the two players moves clockwise, after all. Maybe you should say something about capturing isolated pieces...

I liked this quiz, got confused with the Sorry clue, sounded like the game Ludo to me.

Given how many decades ago it was that I last played Mastermind, I guess I don't really mind missing that one.

Great quiz! Also accept Snakes and Ladders, and Ludo, please? Also in Backgammon, one player moves their pieces clockwise, but the other person has to move their pieces counterclockwise.

I could only think of "Snakes and Ladders"; that's all I've ever called it. Please accept this and also "Ludo" for "Sorry".

could you please add snakes and ladders for another answer to chutes and ladders, and code breaker for mastermind.

And I know that sorry is slightly different to Ludo but the game play is really similar, and they both came from Pachisi.

If you could add these in it would really help us who are not from America (or not NZ) and have slightly different names from you, thank you
