Grim’s Trick or Treat: Trivia

Eyewire, citizen science, Grim's Trick or Treat, Halloween, Daniela Gamba, Brax, robot, costumes

Phew. After dealing with the past couple of houses, you’re hoping the third one has just as many treats but a few less tricks. You may be in luck: this house is not overrun with vines, and as executive director Amy (@amy) opens the door and invites you in, you don’t see any equipment around for feats of strength or accuracy.

Not so fast, though! At the table where Amy has set her big bowl of candy, you also meet her new baby Sophie, playing with something that looks like a newfangled toy robot, the Inquizitor 3000. Cute baby… noisy robot! Every time Sophie hits a button, the toy fires off a question about science (or, strangely, Halloween).

“Sorry about the noise!” Amy says with an apologetic smile. “The bot usually turns off for a while once someone has responded to its questions enough. Care to try? I’ll give you a piece of candy for every question you can answer.”

Well, it looks like you can rest your body here, but you can’t rest your brain. It’s trivia time!

Trivia How-To: The bot will start firing off questions at 11:00 AM EDT on 10/20 and continue until 11:00 AM EDT on 10/22, at which point things will finish with a power hour till noon. Submit your answers by typing them into the chat box. Optional: you may submit answers privately by messaging @inquizitor if you do not want other players to see your responses. To do this, type /pm inquizitor before your message.

Swag (generously sponsored by @susi): The top scoring player will win 1 mug and their choice of a sticker or magnet! Second and third place may each also choose between sticker or magnet.

Bonus info is available in your in-game notifications. Good luck!
