Ok so the quiz has been online for a week now so as promised we will post the top 3 scores and some other info. Anthony and myself have decided that we won't reveal who the scores belong too because it keeps everybody in suspense =D.
So far on the quiz 13 different people have taken it and we have had 22 attempts. Out of that total the average score is 34 out of 50. The question the most people have gotten wrong is Question #20. As a hint. Remember Questions with the checkboxes have more then one right answer. Due to the software used to make the quiz...to get the question right you must check all the boxes that have a correct response for that question or it will trigger the question as incorrect! so make sure to check your answers people! The other question that has the most wrong answers is #40
The top 3 scores are
1st: 47 out of 50
2nd: 42 out of 50
3rd: 40 out of 50
So the top prize is still up for grabs. The 1st person to ace the test before the month is over wins the $10 gamestop gift card and the button. So keep submittng your tests people!
Please Read this News Post BEFORE taking the Quiz!!
Hello everyone. The quiz that I talked about in the last news post is up and running! I will be posting the link to the contest below. But 1st theres just a couple things that need to be said first so everybody knows whats what.
First off, keep in mind that after you take the quiz your submitted score will be sent to us and you will not be able to see what your score is until the contests ends on July 6th to prevent cheating . But each week we will post who currently have the top 3 highest scores so far. You can take the test as many times as you want to try and improve your score but remember whoever gets closest to 100% first over the course of the month will be getting the top prize. So get your scores in as early as possible. The other 5 prizes will be up for grabs pretty much until the end of the contest.
After the contest ends everybody will be able to see their score and details on the quiz so you can see which questions you got wrong. When taking the quiz keep an eye out for a few questions that have square checkboxes instead of the little bullet marks. The questions with the tick boxs have more then 1 right answer for the question, and you can select more then one answer.
6 of our entrants from our past contest never contacted us for us to send them their free pin on button as a consolation prize. So Anthony and myself have decided to do a mini contest to get them to someone else instead of them just collecting dust on Anthony's desk. So what we decided to do is make up a quiz that asks multiple choice questions relating to a number of different HM games ranging from items to chatacter names etc. There will be 50 questions. The quiz [once completed and online] will be posted for 1 month. At the end of the month the 6 people with the best scores will each receive a free pin on button featuring the artwork of Vaughn with the caption "Save a horse, Ride a Cowboy". The person who gets the highest score will also receive a $10 EB-Games/Gamestop gift card along with the button! As a tie breaker at the end of the month if more then one person aces the quiz will be whoever completed it 1st. so once its up make sure to take the quiz early for a better chance at top prize!
Once the quiz is up and running there will be another news post with a link to the quiz. Good luck to everyone!

So our poll for April was for us to get an idea of what kind of participation we would get if we held another contest in the near future. The options were rather simple, "Yes, No or Maybe" The following are the final tally's of the poll! We got 9 definite "Yes!" votes. 2 people didn't like contests. And a great turn out of 13 maybe's. Well, maybe is better then No. Thanks for voting.
So as mentioned at the beginning of April our next poll will decide what the contest will be about next time around. So if you are planning to enter again or were one of the 13 people who voted maybe, or the 9 who voted yes, be sure to vote again for what you would like the contest subject to be! The poll will run until June 1st. We decided to do 1 option at a time for a contest so a lot of people get a chance to see each option, plus its going to be a while before we do another contest. So the Poll for June will be to get your opinion on the option of having a Harvest Moon Character Look-A-Like Photo Contest! In this contest you would have to dress up like any HM character and try to be as accurate as possible with costume and hair, etc and take a picture. Most accurate and well designed costume would win obviously. So let us know what you think by voting on our poll for May!
Thanks again for checking in and be sure to vote on our new poll!
