Default Daily Cruise Trivia Contest

Is there a way to have a trivia contest for those of us that play the game everyday ? Perhaps the only ones that can advance are those that score at least 80% correct answers ?

The prize could be a balcony cabin on one of the future CM group sailings ?

Put me in, coach - I don't smoke and I just won the ping pong championship on the Sun Princess. My trivia team was awful, but not because of me!

Where are you going with this Venice? A wee club on ship with bouncers on the door giving IQ test for those superior enough to enter your "quiz"

jeeez

It's all entertainment and for all, they paid their money thick or not.

But in the spirit of this thread, "who was the 5th person to step on the moon? Easy trivia,,,,well at least in my crowd

Tooo insular re gripes. should get out more in this big CM world,,,,Well no, aint playing. Retirement home time, then fine, maybe consider it then.

But honestly, is this site so good it provides on line care as well as cruise advice??

thank you Donna for clearing up my intentions..I enjoy playing the game every day so I thought it would be nice to have alittle contest

the person on the CM staff that does the daily questions should receive a pay raise

Venice, respect, sorry got off on one. Donna,,,,eh not yet, gripes is taking enough of my attention, dont need another addiction in doing the CM
quizzes

But respect, and nice one. I got mixed up in thinking it was a ship quiz, never expecting or thinking a gripe about a CM provided service. Oh

But now that I understand Venice, tell me again. What are these guys up too? Is it the table is titled? or the "in" crowd always seem to win?

Lets dish the dirt

Hi DavidB,

Every once in a while you need to click on "Home" and see what else is on this site! I'll admit that I only do that about once a month . Just be sure you have lots of time. There's a lot of good "stuff" there .

I don't know enough about the different ships, etc., to be any good at "Trivia", but I don't think it's "tilted" to the "in" crowd!

So glad you enjoy them! As is typical these days we don't often hear cooments about what we do here unless someone has a criticism. The person who does daily trivia is Ingrid, who also goes by "Mermaid" as a screen name.
