    I did this one; I thought some of the questions were pretty good.
    I suspect quite a few people got perfect scores, but we'll see. Time was definitely a factor...

    I loved this contest. I got stumped by the State Quarter question, of all things. Who knew the guy galloping across the Delaware quarter was not Paul Revere, but a guy named Caesar? It finally dawned on me the next day. The time clock was absolutely the deciding factor. That was one fast hour.

    Dave, I think you may be wrong about there being a lot of perfect scores. For the plane competition, Google invited a lot of very famous puzzlers on board to help the passengers total more points. Wei-Hwa Huang, the designer of the 2006 Google Da Vinci Code Contest, was on one winning plane, but he was not able to get a perfect score. The well known game designer, Mike Selinker, wasn't able to achieve a perfect score until the third try.

    So, if you managed to get the maximum amount of points or even near to it, I think you may have a very good chance of being one of the 5 winners. (yet again!)

    It would be really interesting to know how many people actually participated and how many were able to climb above 30,000 points.
