What is VGM Quiz?

VGM Quiz (Video Game Master Quiz) is a free multiplayer and real time quiz dedicated to the video gaming world. The quiz is split into two parts:

-KNOWLEDGE Quiz: answer the question or riddle.
-MUSIC Quiz: find the title of the video game from which the music is coming from.

How to answer?

Type with your keyboard to answer as fast as you can when a question is asked or while a music is playing. There are no MCQs: VGM Quiz requires and rewards expertise and quick typing!

Uppercase does not matter in the answer, for instance you can write
"Super Mario Bros", "super mario bros", or even "sUpeR mARIo broS"

Except for the ampersand (&), the dash (-), the plus (+) and the apostrophe ('), do not use any special character in your answer.
i.e: write "Super Mario Bros" instead of "Super Mario Bros."

Also, never add 1 to the first game of a series.
i.e: write "Super Mario Bros" instead of "Super Mario Bros 1"

Abbreviations and acronyms are not accepted except for very specific cases.
i.e: write "Super Mario Bros" instead of "SMB"

Try to avoid articles when answering a question. You'll be fine!

What are hares/tortoises?

Do you know Aesop or La Fontaine's fable The Tortoise and the Hare? If not, please take the time to read this tale: i'ts a valuable story still today.

Hares are earned by answering fast enough and give one bonus point. Be the first to answer in less than 6 seconds for a SUPERSONIC (which gives another bonus point), and you might obtain a new record, or break an existing one if you answer really fast! In less than 2 seconds, you'll make an ULTRASONIC (which gives nothing more... don't be too greedy)!

If you take your time and answer in the last seconds, you'll instead earn a tortoise, which does nothing substantial but is REALLY cool anyway.

What is a room?

A miserable little pile of questions! (Or you know...music...)

This is where you play and meet other players. Each room has its own purpose and difficulty. We advise new players to try an easy one first! When a player reaches 10.000 rounds, they won't be able to ULTRASONIC/SUPERSONIC and do records in an easy room.

Is it possible to talk on the chat while a song is playing?

Yes, you can use the command /say followed by your message. Please note that during an event, it might not be possible to talk while a song is playing.

Events?

On some occasions, the VGM Quiz Team will hold an event.

An event is a unique, non-random quiz about a specific topic (RPG, 8 bits...)
Players compete to grab a special award, attributed to the first 3 players of the rank. Those awards stay visible forever on your profile page.

You can organize your own private event (about whatever you want) by going VIP!
