This quiz is much too easy, probably the easiest on Jetpunk. everybody knows what that statue is made of and where that bullet became lodged

Just a few things:

I know why you asterisked out what happens when you knock Mulligan down, but could you accept it without the asterisks?

Also, with the soldiers one, would you consider accepting "take the bullets out your guns" or "take the bullets out of their guns" so that it's slightly easier to get?

Also, I spent a lot of time struggling to get the quiz to accept Eliza before remembering her full name was elizabeth, is it possible to accept both?

It was a super fun and interesting quiz though, and I like that it had easy and challenging elements.

Yeah, the spelling killed me. I missed "TAKE THE BULLETS OUT YO GUNS" also, couldn't get it to accept Eliza either, and misspelled "Eaker" (that one was my fault). But I'm not sure how anyone would get "Who shot first?". I kept trying, "the gun".

Oh, and you didn't need to type the asterisks.

I think some spelling alternatives need to be accepted. In the one question you spell his son's name "Phillip" with two L's but you don't accept that spelling as an answer for "What is his first son's name?" I missed at least 10 answers because of spelling or not being specific enough

Some of these answers are very silly. 'Who shot first'? If you meant the duel he died in, him. The answer would never in a million years be 'God knows', it is not amusing.
