Great quiz. However I almost missed Optimates and Populares and did miss the last answer because it was hard to pin down the exact phrasing.

Yes, I think the last answer should have more type-ins, such as "last emperor", "last western emperor", etc.

You can make it easier if you choose a type-in type of "contains", rather than "starts with", and put the keywords there, like (last emperor), or just (last).

Same here. The question about the twelve tables as well.

Needs a lot of work. I'm a classics graduate and eternal roman boffin, but I regularly found myself asking "what do you want me to type for goodness sake?!"

Edit: it's not a bad set of ideas for questions, but better type-ins are needed (as mentioned above) and any open-ended questions need to be changed. e.g. the 12 tables one - with that sort of question you either accept thousands of type-ins or phrase it better.
