You should probably add more moves for the King's Indian Defense, as the move order shown could be either a King's Indian or a Gruenfeld depending on black's d-pawn moving to d6 or d5. Also, for the Ruy Lopez the notation needs to be corrected.

According to ECO, the King's Indian Defence is 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6. The main variations are 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 and 3. Nf3 Bg7 4. g3.

I'm a bit late but I suggest you change the notation in the Evan's Gambit of bishop movements. I've never seen anyone use the letter L to notate bishops in modern notation.

It's the Evens Gambit, not Evan's Gambit. It's named after William Evans, not someone called Evan.

Very nice quiz, only one criticism: You should maybe add yellow boxes so that one has to be specific and cannot randomly guess. Oh, and I think Spanish Opening should be accepted for Ruy Lopez as well :)

Yes. Evans, not Evan's.
