Thank you @O2EmmaLouise 

Always nice to hear when quizzers like the questions.

That isn`t always be the case, as there are categories which some quizzers love and others hate, so I do try and give a balance of subjects and level of difficulty.

Heck @Mi-Amigo
I think
1. I like space questions but along with others I do not believe that people landed on the moon especially not in 1968 🤔
2. Nope
3. Not sure
4. Not sure
5. Nope
6. Nope
7. Not sure
8. Not absolutely sure
This could be a wipe out 🤪

It's your game you're in charge..just a suggestion that you could consider a star 🌟 system for quizzers like me that only get 1 or 2 stars not reaching the heady heights of Thinkers?
Some recognition for struggling 😁 to get at least 1

Thank you for the suggestion @TallTrees 

In fact, a star star system is used - and is shown in Awards after the Thinkers

- for example in last quiz here

Hi there Mi-Amigo
