The New Yorker Name Drop Quiz - Another Way to Puzzle
Our Puzzlicious team recently discovered The New Yorker magazine's unveiling of a new quiz product to their lineup of games and puzzles. Name Drop, their new daily quiz, presents several (up to six) clues that pertain to the identity of a fascinating person whose name must be guessed by the player. To add to the challenge, the quiz is time-limited to 100 seconds. The goal is to get a high point score (max 6) by using as few clues as possible to answer correctly. As a bonus for playing, when additional content is available, post-quiz will link to the character's profile for more information.
While it is initially on a trial period, the New Yorker intends to include the Name Drop quiz in their subscription offerings. You will find, as we did, that the subjects are wide-ranging across the pop culture spectrum as well as historical figures. So go ahead and enjoy another way to puzzle as you test your knowledge of notable people.
