Slugs
A slug is the basic data unit of the InQuisition
quiz game.
Each slug consists of a category name and five
related questions sorted in difficulty level from easiest to
most difficult.
The more difficult the question, the greater the point value.
Blocks
A block is a game unit composed of 4 slugs for a
total of 20 questions.
A game of InQuisition is composed of a minimum of
two and a maximum of eight blocks.

Centipede
InQuisition is a quiz game. A few of the
InQuisition quizzes on our weekly schedule are played purely
for fun, but most are classified as "Centipede" games.
Scores achieved in Centipede games and any other "pedetype"
games are credited to a player's monthly point total. Most
InQuisition quizzes are "pedetype" games, and are denoted on the
Live Game Schedule with an asterisk. (ie, InQuisition*)
The standard "Centipede" InQuisition
consists of 2 blocks and 40 questions.
Double Pede
The more demanding "Double Pede" InQuisition
consists of 4 blocks and 80 questions.
Triple Pede
The challenging "Triple Pede" InQuisition
consists of 6 blocks and 120 questions.
Quad Pede
The grueling "Quad Pede" InQuisition
consists of 8 blocks and 160 questions.
