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 "pede-type"
games are credited to a player's monthly point total. Most
InQuisition quizzes are "pede-type" 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.
The more demanding "Double Pede" InQuisition
consists of 4 blocks and 80 questions.
The challenging "Triple Pede" InQuisition
consists of 6 blocks and 120 questions.
The grueling "Quad Pede" InQuisition
consists of 8 blocks and 160 questions.
