Title: StArter for 10: Round 1
Post by: PreRaphaelite on December 05, 2011, 10:05:20 PM
It's been too long since I last made a topic (let alone a game) so I think it's time to try something new.

How well do you know your... Art?

This is a very straightforward quiz game, without a twist. Starting off very simply with some Modern Masterpieces (c.1800+), all I want to know is: the Name, Creator(s), and (approximate) Date of the pieces shown.

The rules are easy enough: you're allowed to make a guess on TWO pictures in total. There will be two categories, A and B. Pictures from category A are worth 1 point, and pictures from category B are worth 2 points. The pictures you choose can be from the same category (either A or B) or one picture from each (One from A and one from B).

A correct answer is the complete Name/Creator/Date, and only the first person to get an answer right will get one point/two points for that picture.


And so... with great trepidation... let's see how this goes, shall we?

Category A (1 point/picture)

oooo.. art! 

I'll give this a shot.  Is it okay if I looked up the dates to be exact?

Ah, it's good to see there's at least one contestant! And it's good news for GG. As well as being lucky enough to have first pick of pictures, you also scored 3 points for your answers.

And now for a quick (and hopefully final) update regarding my ruling on dates. Some artworks are constantly being reevaluated for construction dates, and The Doom Fulfilled is no exception to that. So in order to be fair, and to stop this all from being tooo serious, I'll accept anything within +/- 5 years of a guess for all paintings where the date isn't completely known/concrete.

*blows dust off the Art A-level part of memory*

Had to look up all the dates here

Thats all I got.

(edit, just spotted the two guess rule, and removed two answers)

Congratulations Mr. Cheep, you scored an admirable 2 points for correctly guessing the incredible sculpture by Anish Kapoor. 

Regarding your first answer:

That is indeed the answer I was looking for! Good stuff.

If nobody else decides to have a go by tomorrow, let's turn this into an open competition and see who can name the most of the remaining pictures. Then for round 2 I'll try a different approach to this game, since some of the pictures I've chosen are perhaps a little too obscure.
