This is yet another brilliant quiz! I feel like it might be a tad too hard though. There's so much going on in the picture that it's difficult to take in so much detail. For example, I wasn't expecting a question on the number of people, and I thought that would be irrelevant since you wanted us to focus more on colors, what people are doing/wearing, etc. Also, colors are kinda hard to remember because they don't feel very significant. I think it's easier to notice details that seem out of place (like Jeppy or the man holding the sausage for example).

I realize this isn't supposed to be an easy quiz, but I just thought I'd give my opinion since you asked for feedback.

Thanks a lot for the feedback. Really helpful. As it's a random quiz I can't see which answers people are getting right or wrong, though I can see the scores aren't high. I think I'll make it into a fixed set of questions and just focus on interesting details. I'm not sure that being random adds much value. Probably better to have a solid list of fun questions. Thanks again :)

10/15 but missed two because of my vocabulary only (buoy, life ring).

Somehow I thought it was written PPU in reverse on the submarine, I didn't think of those as 9 (I have to blame my brain and the artist for that, not the quizmaker ;) ).

I don't like the hat question, it's hard, the "front of the submarine" is unclear, as well as the fact that the hat is lost... it's just been hooked up but it's still above his head. Whatever...

For the weapon question, isn't there also a machine gun on the deck of the submarine?

Great quiz!

Hmm, I thought that was a harpoon. Might change that question.

Yeah, I tried "machine gun," "turret," "mounted turret," "anti aircraft gun," and other variations/combinations. Never considered harpoon. Also this may be a dialect thing but where I'm from we call life rings "life preservers"

Great quiz. Very unimpressed with my score of 6, I couldn't understand how I'd missed so much detail then once I saw the answers realised I'd only seen half of the picture (on mobile and didn't scroll right) oops!

That animation that pops up when we start the quiz looks great. Great idea! I found the questions extremely hard--I was not expecting to need to identify character by their physical appearance and then know what they were doing on top of that, but not knowing what to look for is part of the fun!

Yeah I’m not that happy with this quiz. It’s too hard. I think I’ll make a new one now that the options of pictures to use are more open. This one is just too busy.

Should have accepted lifebuoy for life ring. Great quiz though.!
