Great quiz but some names are hard to spell so could you make more correct answers?


Level 24

Damn you spelling!!!
Level 17
Oct 30, 2014
this was a challenging one! also agree to spelling and that reek was ramsay snow
Level 41
Oct 31, 2014
Not in book 5, though, which is why I made that distinction. Correct spelling is an intended part of it. It's meant to be hard.

Needs more time, a lot

You could add extra:

The Dancing Master = Syrio Forel

The Disgraced Knight/The Fool = Ser Dontos Hollard

Former/excommunicated Maester = Qyburn

Squire = Podrick Payne

The Masked Woman = Quaithe

Kudos for not including the most unnecessary character in the whole entire series though: I don't understand why people get so caught up about that one. Strong Belwas is the most nothing character that there is in the books. Leaving him out of the tv series was inspired casting.

And make the quiz LONGER! There isn't enough time!

Level 73

You missed one of the most famous nicknames, The Sword of the Morning!
Level 41

Apart from Aerys and Rhaegar, I've deliberately stuck to only including characters that actually appear in the timeline of the books, as opposed to predating the series. Otherwise I would have included historical figures like 'Bittersteel', 'Egg', 'Breakspear', 'The Kingmaker', etc as well. Also, technically 'The Sword of the Morning' is just the title of whichever knight of House Dayne is deemed worthy to carry the ancestral greatsword 'Dawn', so if I included historical figures, while we automatically think of Ser Arthur, it would apply to Ulrick, Davos, and various other Daynes as well.

Yes, there are 7 Starks in a row. WHY ARE WE PUTTING IN THE LAST NAME EVERY SINGLE TIME?!?!?!?
Level 24

I'd ask for a little more time.

Good quiz but definitely needs to be longer. At least 10 mins
