Introduction

QuizQuilt is a trivia game with a twist. Each puzzle consists of a set of genus trivia questions whose answers provide the solution to a cryptic quilt clue. If you're stuck, hints are available. Or just check out the quilt solution and read the bonus explanations and factoids with each answer.

QuizQuilt runs on almost every PDA or cell phone using PalmOS.

General Rules

Each QuizQuilt puzzle consists of a set of trivia questions and a quilt clue for you to solve.

QuizQuilt has two main screens that you will work on. The Quilt screen presents all of your current answers in a grid and allows you to select where the quilt answer should run through them. The Question screen presents each category question and gives you a place to enter your answer (you can also enter the answer on the Quilt screen).

When you think you've solved the quilt, or you just want to see the answers, you can go to the Solution screen. You can also check your score at any time on the Scores screen.

Each quilt includes one question from each of the following six genus categories:

You can view the categories of the questions on the Quilt & Module Info screen.

Category answers can be entered on either the Quilt screen or the Question screen.

Your currently calculated quilt answer appears at the bottom left of the Quilt screen and at the bottom of the Scores screen. Hyphens indicate missing letters.
